This place has the pasta in a cheese wheel, that is the main reason we went and it was totally worth it. It comes straight to your table and they do it right in front of you ! We read the other reviews so we...More

Attracted by the good reviews, we decided to have dinner at Paradiso Perduto. It is very hard to get a table on short notice, so the only available option was 6:30 which was convenient to us as we hadn't had a big lunch. They put...More

I love coming here but don't do it when you want a quiet relaxing meal. This place is hectic and you need to pay attention to what you are doing. Paradiso Perduto is fun, loud, and awesome. If you can score a table by the...More

A friend who lives in Venice told us about this restaurant. It is a bit off the main streets and is full of locals who know how good it is. The first time we tried to eat there, every table was booked solid for several...More

Off the main arteries that funnel Venice’s tourist flows, in the north-western Cannaregio district, Fondamento Della Misercordia offers a string of agreeably calm, reasonably frequented, and surprisingly low-key restaurants – with one important exception: Il Paradiso Perduto. Easily recognisable by the bustling crowd in front...More

we had to wait 30 mins before getting a table but it was worth waiting. Had an amazing meal (fish antipasti) and pasta. A bit pricey but portions where huge. Great atmosphere, lovely staff. A bit busy... but I guess that's part of the experience...More

Okay busy (BUSY!), hard to get a seat, a bit hard to navigate if your Italian sucks... but excellent food and wine. Local seafood specialties, veggies for those who need them, and great wine. Sit outside by the canal and people watch or socialize with...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
