We had lunch here as soon as we arrived in Venice. The service was great and food was lovely. Lovely little restaurant in a quiet location. We had a bottle of the restaurants own Pinot which was beautiful.

The name of this peculiarly shaped Campo dei Mori probably refers to the medieval stone sculptures of three Moors on the buildings, all which carry waving robes and turbans. A fourth Moor is located at the corner of the fondamenta directly at the door of...More

Reading about this history of this square is a must, otherwise just a dull square. Once over the wrought iron bridge, Osteria dei Mori is straight infront of you =- we have eaten here years ago, very good. The square is to the left of...More

If you are truly interested in past Venetian life, this is one of the most mysterious and fascinating unknown parts of the city, away from the hoards to tourists. Whilst wandering along Fondamenta dei Mori, when you see Osteria dei Mori walk to the left...More

We walked into Campo dei Mori because it was nearby our hotel. Right from the start the service was terrible. The attitude of Mikhail our waiter was callous and demeaning. We got the impression that Campo only wants resident Venetian clients and does all they...More

This is a fascinating campo with a story. The statues of three Moors, plus their servant, seem to come alive from the walls of the buildings. According to the legend, the Mori is where three brothers from Morea/Peloponese - Sandi, Afani and Rioba Mastelli came....More

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
