A very grumpy barman informed us at 11:57 we would have to come back in 10 minutes before we could sit down which put us off. We did come back though as we didn't want a touristy lunch and get ripped off. We sat down...More

This bustling osteria offered typical Venetian fare in what seemed like an authentic, nontouristy atmosphere. We went for lunch and tables were filled with Venetians of all sorts, regulars and one-timers coming in for both the regular daily menu and the specials. Service was pleasant...More

But not us -- terrible spaghetti, cold uninteresting, arrabiata sauce, and gummy gnocchi. Punk salad and underdone grilled vegetables. The eggplant parmigiana was decent but the eggplant were underdone. Wait staff, that night, 2 women, were lovely, efficient. We tried this place twice while on...More

A Nice and cosy Restaurant. The Staff is very polite and helpfull. Unfirtunately the Food is nothing Special. Neither Risotto nor Pasta are anykind of Special. Not bad at all, but nothing more than average.

Old decor, but the food is tasty and menu offers a great choice of traditional Italian food. The atmosphere is cosy and romantic. The service is attentive despite only 2 waitresses for whole restaurant. I noticed the chef also helped to clear tables so next...More

We visited this place after our hotel owner recommended it as his favourite. The food was nice but the welcoming was unpleasant. The man behind the bar was staring at us while we were eating and shouted to the waitress almost every time she was...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
