Found this little restaurant by chance and what a win. The food was very good as well as the service. The server had a great sense of humour and good recommendations. The lamb was delicious and the bruschetta was fresh and light, perfect to start. The location is also great and not your typical tourist spot. Not cheap but reasonably... More

I first had the privilege of dining at Chef Domenico Iacuzio's when he was running La Columbina, several years ago. I had never had such great food in my life, and wrote about it here on TA. Well, the only thing that has changed is that he has become even BETTER with time. My two dinners were again, extraordinary. Saturday... More

This was a little hidden restaurant we found trying to escape the more touristy streets. We had no expectations and got good food, I ordered the swordfish and they adjusted the included vegetables to the ones I wanted. My friends had very al dente pasta but gave my swordfish some indulging looks.😋 we got some home made grappa with the... More

It is well worth the effort to find Bentigodi where the excellence of the food is complemented by exceptional service. We mentioned when we called in for coffee that we had been unable to locate a particular wine and Luca immediately offered to contact the winemaker to see where it was available. Based on the experience and what looked like... More

We found this place purely by accident. They have some very good value lunch specials and the waiter talked those through with us so we could make an informed choice. The food was really good and I think 55 euros for three for lunch and drinks is pretty good for Venice! When we come back to Venice I will take... More

We ate as part of a large (13) group for dinner. Outside seating just off a square, food excellent, attentive service and good value for both food and drink. Good for seafood but with vegetarian & meat options. Will definitely return!

We were recommended this restaurant by a local at lake Como the previous week and hunted it out. Hidden and out of the way, this quirky restaurant doesn't serve the standard fare that seems to be churned out elsewhere. Everything is clearly home cooked and the service when we were there was excellent without being intrusive. I'd definitely return here... More

My wife and I walked by this restaurant each day of our visit on the way to dine somewhere else. It is tucked down at the end of a side street, so not that easy to find. The last night of our Venice trip, we decided to try it, and were lucky we did. Beautiful little restaurant, with great food,... More

Pasta meals were perfectly cooked-sauces were delicious. The owner was helpful with explanations. House wine by the glass was excellent. Total bill for 3 was 60 Euros for quality and great setting.

Just returned from a break in Venice for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We found this place purely by chance and so glad we did. Had our meal on our anniversary ( not that we mentioned it) but had a wonderful night eating the best food we have eaten in Venice either this or previous trip. We returned last night before...

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.
