We've chosen this place to close our trip to Venice. This little place not far away from Rialto bridge is off the busy streets and serves great local and home made cuisine. Service is pleasant (different from most touristic places where they are rude and...More

The food was tasty but the service was very slow although the restsurant wasn't very bussy. The prices are a little bit spicy

We had the sea food appetizer. The single shrimp was dried out. The vegetable appetizer was dried out like it had been sitting out. The seafood paella only had some mussels and nothing else. Please skip this and try something good elsewhere for the money.

We had been walking through this neighborhood close to lunch time and entered based on the menu and the number of locals. Our lunch was well prepared and service was great. We enjoyed the gnocchi, fish of the day and squid ink linguini.

This place was recommended to us by our nearby hotel as being a favourite with locals as well as better-informed tourists. We recommend advance booking as we were lucky to get in on Sunday evening so we reserved a table for the following night. These...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
