“Over priced, mediocre food, poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

We had our evening meal here as this Trattoria looked good from the outside.
We each had a pizzas and a drink, total price Euro 36.
The pizzas were burnt on the bottom and nothing special.
No wonder it was almost empty.
Service was poor and walking through to Accademia and there were several better value restaurants nearer Accademia, which were also busier.
Would not recommend this restaurant.

“Excellent restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

My wife and I visited Venice again in July/August and made a particular point of visiting the Trattoria Ca'Foscari Al Canton where we were greeted like old friends. We again stayed in Castille but the trip across the city was well worth the trouble. Good food, good value, good company. We visited several times and will go there again on our next visit in December - that should indicate what we think about the place. We recommended it to a friend who was visiting the city earlier in the summer and she so liked the restaurant she went there every night of her stay. I highly recommend this restaurant - for a lunchtime snack or a full blown three course dinner in the evening.

“Good food, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2012

My wife and I have been visiting this unpretentious but charming restaurant for many years on our frequent trips to Venice and now when we go there the owner remembers us and greets us. We found it when our hotel was nearby and though we now stay some distance away in an apartment in Castello we consider it well worth the trip across the city in the evening to eat there. The menu is varied and the food well cooked and presented. The prices are not exorbitant and we both had three course meals with wine and coffee for less than €70 (if we had stuck to the tourist menu it could have been a loss cheaper!). The restaurant has an excellent atmosphere and importantly, as our trip was in January when it was very cold, was comfortably warm. We dined there four times on our latest trip (out of seven nights in the city - the other evenings we cooked for ourselves in the apartment). The waitress, Valentina, is charming and helpful. We will be returning to Venice soon and we will most certainly eat at Ca'Foscari Al Canton again - the trip would seem incomplete if we didn't. I recommend the restaurant. It's a good place for that romantic special occasion.
