We arrived in Venice in the late afternoon & were in search of a casual place to grab snacks/drinks to hold us over until dinner. Our hotel suggested La Cantina as it was just a short walk away. It was busier than we expected it...More

This is a nice little restaurant with good seafood cicheti and raw oysters and wine. I don't eat meat, but the other customers seemed to be happy with their selections. So, nice local cuisine. The staff was very nice and I'm sure it has to...More

I went here on the suggestion of my hotel. I was told it was a casual little place for a lite bite and a glass of wine. I felt that the staff was extremely rude if you didn't speak Italian. I also had a terrible...More

This is a great place if you speak Italian, or don't mind what you get. Popular with locals. The food ( like tapas) looked good, but as I don't eat meat and my Italian is basic we decided not to eat here. It's a get...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
