While we sat outside to enjoy the weather, the indoor bar area has a cool display of copper and other types of pans hanging from the ceiling. The zucchini and shrimp risotto was fabulous and well worth the wait. The fish we had for our main course was good but I believe we were too full from the risotto to... More

The onion spaghetti is to die for. Literally my send off meal. I have tried to duplicate it at home, but it tastes only vaguely this good. Oniony, creamy, peppery, transcendant. Do yourself a favor and eat here! Eat here and eat the cippoline onion pasta. Ahhhhhh!

Small Piazza a bit out of the way, very busy area with several restaurants, lucky we got a table at Il Milion. We were staying just a few blocks away and would have gone back in a minute if we were not leaving the next day. We have recommended it many times.

Very popular square with three restaurants, so a wait for a table for 7 was inevitable. But worth the wait as we were well looked after. Food was very good and excellent service made for an enjoyable evening. Very reasonable too !

Honestly don't bother - there's loads of other overpriced low-quality restaurants you can visit throughout Venice that might have more charm. Food was oily, serving portions small but expensive, and it didn't have that Italian freshness we've had all over Italy. Staff were indifferent and rude. They forgot to take our order to start with and then forgot some of... More

We have been here twice in ast two years. Although it is little hard to find it is worth the trip. The owner, Roberto, speaks perfect english and is happy to help you with your selections if you ask. We like wines from the Veneto and were about to order a known Valpolichela. Roberto pointed to a bottle from a... More

This is one of the best restaurants we visited during our holiday. We enjoyed it so much we went twice again and were not disappointed. Situated 200 yards from Marina Square in a small courtyard with about 12tables outside and many more inside. We tried the Peppered steak and the Gamberoni Griglia both with grilled vegetables. Wine and beers were... More

Really lovely place, a surprise down a back alley. Went for dinner and had a gorgonzola gnocchi and a veal main, both of which were two of the best dishes I had during my trip to Italy.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
