Nice settings. Some how old fashioned but in good way. Kind, fast, and experienced waiters who knows how to treat the guests. We had two starters - combination of boiled fish, and cod fish pate. Both were tasty and well presented. But fish soup (zuppo...More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and did not disappoint - in fact we went twice. It is one of those places that welcomes locals and visitors alike - and with a free aperitif. It has real old world charm with dark wooden furniture,...More

We wanted somewhere a little special and this restaurant does give that with a pianist playing, an enthusiastic greeting and everything served with a flourish. The fish dishes we chose were alright but we had better in other restaurants much cheaper. We were rather rushed...More

Vecia Cavana was one of our favorite restaurants we ate at during our trip to Italy. The impeccable staff start out bringing you a mimosa and a great bread basket. We love seafood, and this restaurant does a great job with their fish soup and...More

This was a special occasion for my partner's birthday, and I had been impressed to learn that this restaurant had a gluten-free menu (I need to avoid wheat gluten). The restaurant is large, with a pianist playing, and rather an old-fashioned atmosphere no doubt intended...More

Recommended by our hotel, and I wish we had not listened to them. The most disappointing meal we had in seven days in Italy. We ordered two seafood pastas and two mains. The pastas were good, though they really skimped on the seafood, particularly given...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
