Oh! I had really good experience. The food, price, service- everything was excellent. I can definitely recommend people to visit them.

Traditional cuisine and excellent service. The food was great. We considered this to be the best restaurant in Venice.

This place seems like old style Venetian dining at its best. Solid and efficient service with many dinner options that are best shared by two or more. On the night we visited, there were several large tables being served, but service did not lag. We enjoyed their beautiful buffet of antipasta grilled vegetables followed by pastas, one was a lovely... More

Spaghetti Vongole with clams, a green salad and free mimosa! The clams were so plentiful it took awhile to remove all the shells before eating!!! The clams were cooked perfectly, not chewy or overlooked. They were so flavorful and had a hint of sweetness too. The green salad was just right to accompany our dinner.

We came here our last night and my only regret is that we didn't go here sooner. The food was amazing and the service was great. I highly recommend it.

Greeted with a Bellini on arrival at Vecia Cavana, I knew I'd picked a good place! The tuna carpaccio was fantastic as was the sea bream which was brought whole to the table and then taken away to be taken off the bone before serving. Helpful waiters were happy to recommend wines and spent time chatting with diners. There was... More

I had the spider crab then veal with marsala then cheeses. All delicious and the service was friendly and efficient. My friend had salmon then sole which they brought to the table to show before taking it away and filleting it in a matter of seconds. The restaurant is off the beaten track and not touristy. We were also given... More

The best meal out of 4 nights in Venice. The dishes are presented so beautifully and the staff is so professional, but at the same time the restaurant isn't stuffy. They make you feel so comfortable, like you would from a small family owed restaurant. At the end of the meal, my daughter was trying to decide on which of... More

Recommended by the hotel as a great place for fish - and they weren't wrong. But they didn't say just how good the service would be as well. The only complaint was that even though we ate there twice, on neither occasion did we have enough room for dessert! And they push them round on a trolley so you get... More

It's been 20 years we don't pay a visit to Venice. Vecia Cabana was our first night reservation. To tell the truth after this dinner we wondered why it took so long to come back. Venice is the Great Beauty and the first encounter with its food exciting. The best Risotto ai frutti di mare as memory goes and squids... More

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.
