Three of us had a very enjoyable meal. The food was delicious and the wine selection good and the atmosphere was relaxing. The staff also were really helpful. One of our party need to seek medical attention and they kindly wrote out all the necessary details for us ..taking the time despite them being very busy.

Finding this little restaraunt off the main drag of Venice was a welcome change from the norm. The service was ok and menu typical of the area but the food was wonderful and prices average for the region. I will visit again and recommend to my fellow trippers.

The people working there was giving the worst service i have experienced in italy (after one week). The waiters was sloppy (i had to ask for the wifi password twice, they served my girlfriend ice cold red wine and i had to ask them to remove our plates 15 minutes after we where done eating). The food was good. Be... More

The food here was really good and excellent value. We had 2 courses for 16 euros and a litre of wine for 8 euros- bargain! Good service and atmosphere. Would recommend.

The waiter was a bit racist imo, was annoyed when we ordering, we wanted to order 2 set meals (each for 16EUROs) and share betwwen us because the ladies were not very hungry. But it wasn't allowed, the waiter explained, if we... More

I had salmon gnocchi and beef liver with onions. The gnocchi was AMAZING!!!!! The liver tasted like home and I'm from China. What a surprise! I remember my mom usually cooked pork liver with scallions and the whole family loved it. I moved to US three years ago and always missed my mom's cooking. I've never thought I could find... More

Upon arrival in Venice, we asked the owner of our hotel for a restaurant to go to for dinner nearby, and were recommended to visit herr. It was our first night in Venice, it was a warm evening and we wanted to relax and have a bite to eat and a few drinks. Trattoria Da Gigio was absolutely perfect. We... More

Had a quick meal here before our train and everything was great - wish we could have stayed longer for another course! The food is very well priced considering how great it is.

Had a good meal here, the gnocchi was excellent as were the pasta dishes my daughters had. Will definitely eat here again next time I'm in Venice.

Not far from the train station in Venice. Very close to the Grand Canal. Excellent dinner here in June 2010.

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.
