I and my wife share grilled scallops. They were unforgettably tasty. Mine clams pasta was perfect with house white wine. My wife had sea food pasta in tomato sauce, which was also delicious.

La Colonna is off of the busy area, and it looks very local. The taste was not really good, and we could not finish pasta.

And only so so service. This looks like a typical case of a pleasant restaurant setting with good reviews that just does not care and is cutting corners. The (free) crostini to start were terrible- I should have guessed at that stage. But next up...More

Outside under a vine canopy, two hours off relaxed dining with wait staff that was a pleasure to be around.

We really enjoyed the experience. The food was amazing and the staff includes very kind and happy people. Besides the place was full and that is always a good sign..

The food is the best I've had in Venice! Go for the fish soup! It is the best! I love seafood and had it many times before and here it's the best! They have their own wine as well and the white is very smooth!

An okay place, not crowded with people. The service was not very good and the food was touristic, not the Italian quality I was expecting.

We were recommended to this restaurant by our Airbnb host, and were not disappointed. Service was very friendly and the food was excellent. The pesto sauce is by far the best we have ever tasted, and the scallopine was very tender. Would highly recommend eating...More

Very charming, off the main drag, well positioned restaurant. Full choice of menu with all food freshly prepared. Really was the best restaurant we tried in venice. Price was good too.

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

Many at La Colonna spoke English very well. But, you could also try Al;a Madonna, about a block off the Rialto Bridge. Also very good!
