By accident we ran into this nice little Ostaria. Both our starters and main dishes were of outstanding quality. Service was impeccable. On top, the waiter was very knowledgeable about wine, so he could offer us the perfect wine to blend with our meal. With...More

This Cannaregio restaurant makes for a memorable dinner. The food was special and you immediately became aware that you were dining. It is a little more expensive than most but worth the money.

The food at Ostaria Da Rioba was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. We especially enjoyed the octopus dish, really tender and positively unmatched for flavour. We really loved the food and the professional service there. Despite our short stay in Venice, we...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

we looked the menu up on line before going to Venice. We went for evening meal and there was no sign of a buffet then.
