This place is not opened Monday's or Tuesdays, like a lot of the better restaurants in Venice, but if you are here on those other days and like the authentic touch and a great wine selection then pop by, highly recommended, interesting menu, super pasta, Yum!

We tried to book this place via email but got no reply. We then just walked in and managed to get a table quite easily although it did get busy later on. Our starter of mixed seafood was good but quite expensive. However, the main courses were good. My wife ordered the special (black seafood pasta) and I had a... More

Only cheap carafes at a higher price than was warranted..so I personally wouldn't go there again if good exciting food was my quest. I read... More

Visited based on a review in the Telegraph. Arrived at 12:30, it was quiet and away from the busy Nuova Strada along a side canal. Did not have a booking but were first customers. Had the fresh mixed fish antipasti, octopus salad,beef carpaccio and buffalo caprese . All very tasty ( mozzarella perhaps a bit on the older side). Had... More

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant on our long weekend in Venice. Although I can't say it was bad, I can say it was a bit disappointing. The food was very simple, nothing special and all dishes seemed to be of the same standard. A shame as you can have simple food but tasteful and well presented,... More

We have eaten here a few times over the last few years, but we were disappointed this time with the unfriendly service. The food was ok, but not exceptional and expensive as others have noted. Not great value experience overall this time. Same staff as previously, but will not return again after this experience.

Just off Strade Nova, Vini da G is easy to find and walk to. The food, both meat and fish, is excellent as are the wines. The atmosphere is intimate with a series of separate rooms and the service is friendly. Prices are reasonable for Venice. Should be on the list to visit. Only downside is that it has no... 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.
