I did not give more than average as I was not impressed with the food , but it was ok, specially the price of the menu is very reasonable, You get what you pay for .

We enjoyed this trattoria for dinner. The house wine was good. Our starter was tagliatelle funghi, and entrees were scaloppine and chicken. All delicious and well presented. Felt a bit ignored by the wait staff; not sure if it was because we were English speakers.

Appearances can be deceiving. This looks like a typical, touristy dive but it isn't. Despite a central location on the Via Rialto, this quaint trattoria retains old world charm. We happened upon this place with our family of four and were lucky that the door...More

This does feel like a proper local restaurant rather than a tourist trap. The service is friendly - bear in mind it is local and friendly place rather than fine dining. My fixed price menu of lasagna and then Milano chicken was great and excellent...More

This is another trattoria where waiters hustle you inside. But they all do. And when they do take the time to relax enjoy or share a small plate have a couple of Spritzers or a glass of red wine. It's truly worth it.

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

Not far from the train station in Venice. Very close to the Grand Canal. Excellent dinner here in June 2010.
