Excellent food, busy and loud family atmosphere, excellent prices. One dish got delayed (actually forgotten), but at least partly because we gave the waiter a difficult order not on the menu. They immediately attended to the oversight when it was pointed out. We also saw them respond very graciously to a demanding and self-entitled customer. Highly recommended.

Seek out Jewish restaurants whenever I travel abroad and so was pleased to see this one on TA and that it had good reviews. Found it easily enough and decided to drop in for a light lunch. We were sat outside for a while before it was noticed we were there. The was one other person eating outside . When... More

We came upon Gam Gam by chance and walked back for an evening table. Despite being busy the waitress slotted us in and we had a delightful meal, a blend of Italian and Jewish / Israeli cuisine. Sensibly priced with good house wines. We ordered a carafe of red wine and got rose which we gently asked to be changed... More

We visited this kosher restaurant after walking around the unique and interesting area of the Jewish Ghetto. This place offers both indoor and outdoor seating and the outdoor seating is right on the canal. The food is a deviation from the usual pasta and pizza we have had in Italy and was really delicious. The appetizer platter was excellent consisting... More

Friendly service, they spoke English, Italian and Deutsch as well which was an unexpected surprise for us. Food was amazing, service was was excellent, wine was good, to top that there was some live music as well. And you can either seat inside or outside with a view to the water canal.

We had been told by friends to try this restaurant after visiting the Jewish ghetto, which we did for lunch. My wife liked her dish, eggplant and chickpeas whereas mine, noodles with fungi (mushrooms), was mediocre. At least the lemonade was fresh and not too tart. All in all it was a good choice given how infrequently you can find... More

The head waiter was very attentive and explained the dishes we ordered. The first course of Venetian sardines was splendid and very different,a taste sensation,pity it was almost thrown on the table by a waitress who then disappeared. All she seemed to do all night was run inside the restaurant much to annoyance of some diners.The other waiters and waitresses... 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.
