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

This restaurant was one of the three recommended by our B&B - we are pleased we came here for our last night in Venice. Some of the dishes require 2 people to order and this is because of the way that they are made. My husband and I both ordered a Risotto and it was fantastic. I have just checked... 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...

excellent, we loved the food and the place and will certainly return. We were recommended to go here by our hotel at Ca"Sagredo. Even when part of our food order slipped down the list, they realised and brought us more drinks on the house to apologise for the delay. We would definitely recommend it for true Italian cuisine and very... More

Although this restaurant is perhaps just 100m from the main pedestrian thoroughfare connecting P de la Roma and the Rialto bridge you are extremely unlikely to wander past it by accident, tucked away as it is down a small side alley that looks like a dead-end. The owner speaks perfect English and was very welcoming and had no problem at... More

Bentigodi came highly recommended by my local Airbnb host, and seems popular with both locals and tourists. Even though its specialty is seafood, I found enough to keep me happy as a vegetarian. I tried the burrata ravioli, which came topped with a crisp fried sage leaf- delicious. Paired with a glass of prosecco, it made for a perfect last... More

Regional wines, local seafood, outstanding meals! The nut (pistachio) encrusted lamb chops were amazing. Friendly service with helpful recommendations slightly off the beaten path. Chef Dominick checked in and was charming. He's happy to accommodate special requests.

This was a great find, out the way from the main tourist track and everything was delicious! The restaurant itself is very quaint and rustic and Italians were eating there which is always a good sign! The food was delicious with homemade pasta and fresh fish and my husband said the tiramisu was to die for! We also each received... 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.
