Ate a meal a la cartel one night and also prepaid fixed menu for 3 Shabbat meals. Food quality good overall; a la carte quality better but then Shabbat is a mass catering operation in three locations and a la carte not possible then. Service helpful and friendly. Restaurant could really do with redecorating as it is starting to look... More

We ordered a schnitzel and a pasta with salmon. Both servings were child-sized. The pasta was old and hard, and the fish was not even close to fresh. I came believe I was served old overheated microwaved pasta in Italy. I get that it's the only kosher meat place in town, so they have no competition, but that doesn't mean... More

We took the various antipastis which were a perfect mix of vegetables, houmous and others sauces. I took the pastas with which were deliciously spicy. We had a nice dinner outside right next to the canal. I recommend trying this restaurant. Also the prices are really affordables for Venice

This was a quick stop for refreshments. The place was busy, noisy and full of bustle and life. We had a quick snack and enjoyed the atmosphere. Enjoy.....

This place has been in business for many years. It was our second trip to Venice, same as our visit to this restaurant. The Food taste amazing, a combination between classic kosher/israeli and italian cuisine, it has many dishes to choose from (all nicely done) and the service is fairly good. Price is about the standard to most not fancy... More

Family of five came for dinner. Service was good. The mixed appetizers were pretty good. They lost me at the main course. I had the beef kebab and it was literally three little dried out hamburger type patties that had the texture of a hockey puck. Don't even remember what everyone else had but nobody was terribly impressed.

Fabulous food in the Jewish Ghetto! For those of you who have been traveling Italy and are desperate for a good kosher meal Gam Gam has a delicious menu and you won't be disappointed. The atmosphere is also fantastic especially on Shabbat when we ate both meals there. Highly recommended!

We went there after visiting the Jewish quarter in Venice and had a chance to taste delicious vegetarian food. It was much needed alternative to the typical Italian food served in most of the Venetian restaurants. We can recommend their Gam Gam starter vegetables, sauces and falafel. The vegetarian lasagne was also very good. The staff was very friendly and... 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.
