We stumbled across this place by accident but we're so happy we did! The food is spectacular!! We had the squid ink spaghetti and the pear gnocchi, both dishes we wouldn't normally go for, but enjoyed every last mouthful. The food felt authentic (not sure if it is or isn't??) and the whole restaurant has a very cosy feel about... More

This is a beautiful little restaurant. We were lucky enough to spend Valentines Day here. The staff were absolutely amazing and the food was incredible. I cannot rate this place highly enough. If you are lucky enough to be visiting Venice then you should definitely try to seek this place out. You will not be disappointed.

Everything about this place was wonderful. We ate there on the recommendation of a local bartender--the first sign that it was going to be a great place. The food was fresh, delicious, and the presentation was beautiful. The restaurant itself is charming and lively. The service was attentive and welcoming. We happened to be there on a night with music,... More

駅前の大通りStrada Nuovaから少し小道に入ったところにあるお店です。 とても美味しい魚介メニューが食べられるので、ヴェネツィアに来たならぜひお勧めです!! とくにAntipastoの魚介盛り合わせ(生のみかどうかも選べます)はぜひ食べてみてほしいです。 パスタとスープ類も量がなかなか多いので、2人で行くと前菜・パスタで充分だと思います。お腹に余裕があればデザートも手が込んでいて美味しいので、チャレンジしてみて下さい! スタッフの方々も皆さん親切なので、色々相談しながらメニューにないものでも快く対応してくれました。 The food was very nice!! Chef Domenico and staff were so gentile. I'm sure you'll have a great time at the osteria!

Visited this place on a referral. The spaghetti with lobster was fantastic. Antipasto was delicious, service was excellent. We felt welcomed as though a part of the family. Ravioli was excellent, beef liver was fantastico, and the stuffed quail was marvelous! It is hard to imagine a better way to spend Christmas! The chef was skilled, charming, and totally into...

Everytime I walk through the door, I am greeted with a smile. The food is fresh, you can taste the love in each dish. Even with my poor Italian, communication is inviting and fun. I have enjoyed the company of so many local patrons, and have come to know Bentigodi as a place for friends and family to gather. And... More

I was on my way to the Jewish Ghetto when Inpassed this restaurant, it was closed but something made me go over and look at the menu. I visited the ghetto and took a tour of the synagogues. As I retraced my steps the restaurant was open and I decided to stop for lunch - a very good decision. I... More

Been there now for the second time this year and chose this location with my wife for her special day - and were again mesmerised! Perfect service, relaxed atmosphere, delightful local food with a twist, good unpretentious presentation and a small, but excellent selection of local wines! We will be back....

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.
