We were five people in Venice and ate dinner.The food was disgusting smelled like old food.they fooled us with price.There was a fish that cost 8 euros but we had to pay 25 euro.Warning to all who eat in Ristorante Chinese Shanghai on Calle Priuli Cavalletti Ai.Ask carefully about the price or do not go to the restaurant.

Tiny portions for the price, rice was cold and hard. Dumplings were uncooked. I asked to cancle the uncooked dumpings, they charged me half because I bite into two of them. Disgusting service, refused to take card under 50 Euros. Avoid at all costs. Worst experience in my life.

We have stayed in Venice twice over the last five years, and each time we enjoyed most of our evening meals at the Ristorante Cinese Shanghai on Calle Priuli Ai Cavalletti, close to the Santa Lucia railway station. The food was excellent; our favorite dishes included the chicken with vegetable, shrimp fried rice, and rice noodles with shrimp, although everything... More

After 8 days having pasta and pizzas, we longing for our own staple food. Taste and quality lower than the one we had in Florence which I reviewed earlier on. Price is lower than most restaurant in venice but they charge a cover charge of E1.50 per pax. The waiter is kinda rude in service compare to other local restaurants.... More

Ordered a few dishes and they came in really small potions. Prawns were certainly not fresh. I'm Chinese myself and I can easily tell the cooking was amateur level. Mum nagged for Chinese food so we went to this one we found - really wished I looked it up on tripadvisor before going in!

I had not expect much Chinese restaurant in Europe, especially in Italy. But food was delicious and price is reasonable. The owner said she came from China 14 years ago. Hope they have bright future!

We came here on December 31st and they charged us 20% extra which was not advertised outside. I have seen additional charges on Saturdays or holidays for Taxies and other services but never in a restaurant before. The portions were extremely small and quality was below average. It will be easy to find a better restaurant than this one.

Small portions - which was a blessing, as the food was terrible. Careless, inattentive staff, interminably long wait for food, and the management was openly hostile when confronted with these facts. Don't waste your time or money.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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 shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
