My wife found this hidden gem in a travel guide, and it was a real delight. The manager graciously set up an extra table for us outside (highly recommended) and soon made us feel at home. We got half a liter of the house white,...More
My wife and I ate there on June 8th, 2020. It was a major wedding anniversary, of which we did not alert the staff.
It is an intimate restaurant, and the music played was all about love. We wanted a light red, and our waitress...More
Everything the reviews say and more. We were staying 50 feet away at the Suites alla Maddalena (which by the way is an excellent alternative to traditional hotels) in Cannaregio and were lucky to book a table our last night. Would have eat there every...More
Visited during the Akva Alta with my girlfriend. We had 2 starters, smoked salmon and ham + burrata, 1 first, pasta with clams and a panna cotta for dessert + wine and coffee.
The food was solid, the wine great and the service friendly and...More
I visited the Osteria Al Cantinon with two friends and our experience exceeded all expectations! We had reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival. The experience from start to finish was superior.
We ordered two appetizers and we also ordered their local fish of the...More
A very cosy place. We got a place for two on short notice. The antipasti was great (salmon, burrata citrus fruits). The spaghetti a.o.p. were the best I ever had. The main course, a flunder with vegetables, came fresh from the oven and tasted really...More
Really good service and explanation of the specials of the day. Seafood clam spaghetti 1st course was awesome, the broth perfect. We shared a sea bass which was well prepared and deboned. Tiramisu and wine was brilliant. Staff were super friendly and attentive😁👍🏽 Would definitely...More
Fantastic food, very attentive service and a secluded and charming space combine to make this a great experience.
We had the black ink spaghetti, the fresh fisn and great desserts with a superb Franciacorta.
Will be back, no doubt.
Two actual gondolieres were eating here....More
This is our 2nd trip to Venice and our 3rd time eating here. It's by far not the cheapest but they care, about their customers and about the food. The owner is there and preparing dishes as well. We would return again.

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.

Turn left when you're just out of the train station. Take the main road (lista di spagna - strada nova) and keep going for around 12 minutes. Turn right just before the third bridge you encounter. That's campo della maddalena
