We loved our lunch at this charming spot off the beaten path. We opted to sit in the main dining room in the back rather than outside - it was filled with local workers enjoying the house wine and the simple but very satisfying lunch menu. The staff was kind and efficient and our whole family enjoyed the food and... More

I came across this little gem when I decided to take a walk away from the touristic main streets. What a gem! Absolutely the best meal I had in Venice. Great seafood in relaxed, unpretentious surroundings; the kind of place where the locals will go. Had a most delicious mussels with clams for starter -- juicy mussels with flavour-concentrated clams... More

This is a long overdue review for the most wonderful, magical and special dinner I had in Venice. It looks like nothing special but Its a total hidden gem and I couldn't recommend it enough! The food is simple yet delicious! And you feel like you are back in the past when you are dinning here. Go!!!

this place doesn't look like anything special but don't be misled, the food really impressed me! I had the squid with polenta and it was amazing. even the steamed vegetables and house wine were good. prices are reasonable and I saw a plate of gnocchi pass by that I surely won't miss the next time I come. after all, it's...

After another day of getting lost in Venice, we stumbled upon this little gem. We arrived mid afternoon right in time for happy hour. After a tip from a tour guide, we were on the hunt for places that served 'cichetti' (little tapas type bites) so we were happy when we stopped here. My hubby still says it's one of... More

We had an amazing, quiet meal on the canal. Prices were very reasonable and the service was great. Highly recommend the prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella to start - the best I've had in Italy. All the pasta was wonderful too.

We tried this little restaurant following good reviews from Tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. We had booked a table outside, the weather was fantastic and the food excellent. Waiting time was a bit long since this day many customers came at the same time, but staff stayed very friendly, doing their best..and staying outside on a nice terrace in... More

Food cooked to perfection, beautifully spiced. We had cuttlefish, octopus and cod dishes cooked perfectly (so easy to get these dishes wrong). This restaurant is well away from the tourist rat runs and the pirate restaurateurs, Well worth the effort to find it. Fair prices, very relaxed atmosphere. You won't get ripped off with inflated prices. You can't go wrong... More

Authentic Venetian food at its very best. By the far the best meal we had during our 4 night stay. You can't knock "tourist" or "set" menus from various restaurants as they represent good value for money. However, if you spend a little extra at this amazing restaurant you will not be disappointed. The Clams and Mussels to start were... More

Our b&b host recommended and booked this lovely little restaurant for us on the last night of our trip to Venice. The food was gorgeous, wine was good and cheap and the establishment was obviously a traditional family run restaurant. We sat on a little table by the canal which was very romantic. We had the mixed seafood starter which... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
