Just a normal restaurant with a medium quality food. Not too crowdy when we visit it. The staff can be more smiley faces if they want to but I don't think that's gonna happen. I might visit it again....only for a pizza.....

This place was a scam. They deceiving asked "do you want garlic bread for the table?" And even though half of the table said "no", they brought out multiple plates of bruschetta and charged 5 euro per person per plate. Food was subpar at best. I would never eat here again and I would never recommend it to anyone else.

DO NOT GO THERE! I hate to say something bad, but I cannot hold this time. When we got the menu, the waiter recommended us their spaghetti and sea food combo. We trusted him but it was a big mistake. The dish was big and I asked the waiter how much it could be. But he just said "by weight"... More

When we told the waiter that they are dishonest and that is not the way they should do business, their faces changed totally... More

Husband and i were excited about visiting italy for the first time and trying the world famous italian food. This restaurant obsolutely gave italian restaurants a bad name. They should be ashamed of themselves how they run restaurant to cheat off their customers (especially tourists). We asked the waiter in english for something simple and he recommended this 8 euros...

Waiters are arrogant and could not care less about tourists that keep them employed. Very disappointing place. Food was ok, check your bill for extra charges

TOURISTS BEWARE!!!!!! Misleading pricing stated 8€ seafood platter, but I was billed 8€ per gram or kilogram!!!! Even by U.S. Standards, charred lobster tail and shrimp is not worth 160€ !!! As a courtesy to my guests and so as not to ruin my last night in Venice, I paid your falsely advertised prices. That's what I get for not... More

While not the first such experience in Italy, we still were disappointed. Thankfully after the overly friendly waiters deposited four bruschetta appetizers, including one for our eight year old niece, we looked to Trip Advisor. What was offered as 'garlic bread for the table' became 20 euros of bruschetta. Others on TA warned of this behavior and armed with the... More

Popular and cosy looking restaurant staffed by friendly staff who enjoy a joke and interacted well with all customers including children. We had some tomato on cracker type bruschetta followed by seafood pasta which lacked seasoning and tortellini alla pana which was incredibly creamy and a bit too rich. Had chocolate fondant for dessert which had clearly been microwaved and... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
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.
