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.

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 quiet and evocative little corner of Venice, particularly in the evening. It is probably not worth a special trip, but if you are staying in the Cannaregio area, it is a pleasant stroll on the way out to the vaporetto stop on...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
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 neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
