Authentic Venice

This little hole in the wall offers authentic Venetian hospitality and food. You may not be accustomed to what's offered but this is the way it's done here. Enjoy!

This Osteria provides an authentic Venetian dining experience. We visited as part of an evening food tour and so only had the pasta. We ordered the tagliatelle with lamb and saffron and the pear and cheese filled ravioli with poppy seeds. Both were delicious. We enjoyed the red house wine which we later learned is organic. I would recommend this... More

Recommended by our hotel, this restaurant is hidden away on a tiny alley and is a cult favorite among locals and tourists alike. Their house-made pastas are superb, and all the seafood is incredibly fresh and expertly prepared. The staff were helpful with recommending food and wine.

The Osteria Antica Adelaide is a wonderful, real, local Venetian dining experience. The fish is excellent and fresh, and the frittura (a large plate of fried everything: calamari, crawfish, salmon, veggies, whole fishes, clams with their shell and all!) is the best I've had in Northern Italy. The batter consists only of semolina, a little salt, and good oil. That's... More

This restaurant was a highlight of our trip. The seafood was amazing - please get the cuttle fish stuffed with artichoke! And anything they do with crab! The staff were also very friendly. The dishes are made with care so its not a quick meal but worth it.

On the recommendation of our concierge we decided to try this restaurant on our first night in Venice. On our arrival we were seated in a corner looking at walls and asked to be moved. We understood they put together a new menu everyday featuring catch of the day plus other features. While we sat we were given a fruit... More

We visited this place for lunch based on a recommendation in the latest Time Out Guide to Venice. I am a long-term user of the TO guides and more often than not their recommendations are spot on for our tastes and budget. However, the Antica Adelaide was a big let down. The restaurant is tucked away in a back street... More

Lovely place with very taste food. We ate the sword fish carpaccio and smoked goose breast as a starter, both had the braised donkey as main course and riccotina cheese with fruit and honey as a dessert. Very pleasant atmosphere with great service, but it is noticable when the staff gets busier. All in all a reasonably priced and very... More

A bit disappointing as the hare gnocchi we had shared a few years ago was memorable and wonderful. Service is very friendly and reasonably efficient but the menu strangely enough though very large left us struggling to find something. Having to share the pasta was a problem as we wanted something different. Also the polenta here is with almost everything... More

Food was good, ambiance cozy and local-feeling. service totally unpredictable. Expensive for what we received. English speaking waitstaff not guaranteed.

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.
