Just been here and the smell was not the best but I thought hey, it's Venice, it smells at the best of times. The food was okay I guess. Nothing to write home about. Now I've seen all of these reviews on here though, I'm glad we didn't have any sea food or anything risky.

Me and my boyfriend went there to dinner. We payed more than 50€ and when we left we were still a bit hungry. Our lasagna was cold, our table was too close to the couple next to us, and the service (that se were obliged to pay) was awful and very slow.

I definitely advise to avoid this restaurant at all costs. It is dirty, overpriced and the food is disgusting. The service is very poor considering the price of the meal! No care taken with food presentation or presentation of the restaurant itself! Worst restaurant ever!

I wish I could give negative stars, this is by far the worst restaurant that visited in Italy (and I visited many) and one of the worst around the world. Where to start? First of all there was a bad smell in the restaurant. We were not sure if it was sewage, rotting food or a combination. The abundance of... More

I wish I could've gave them zero stars... this resturaunt was so ungodly terrible! The girl standing out front lured us in and told us they specialize in sea food. We were desperate so we decided to give it a try. WHAT A JOKE. We had the $12 special... fires courses were all spaghetti thrown on a plate with next... More

Looks appealing from the outside but the second you walk in there is the most horrendous sewage smell, wish we had turned around and walked out but it was our first night, starving hungry, and how naive we were! Freezing cold with no heating and overcharged €10 despite questioning what these charges were?! We only had pizzas thankfully which were... More

The minute we went in we knew something was wrong because of the smell. Nonetheless we sat down thinking it must be the fish. The waiter came over and handed over to us a dodgy looking menu... We took a look and made our order. A few minutes later as we were chatting, my brother in law saw a rat... More

We visited this restaurant on New Years Eve. Once we had been seated there was a distinct smell that was not nice. Toilets dirty no soap, and hand dryer was out of order with cable hanging above sink tied up with parcel tape. The food tasted ok, but was not anything to rave about. I ordered the fried fish, and...

the food was horible, the environment too. Unfortunately we enter in to it because of the lady at the door and it was our first hours in Venice. Definitely do not go there

I wish I had checked Trip Advisor before going here. Sadly my girlfriend and I had the misfortune of eating here for my birthday meal. In short I spent the first 20 minutes swatting flys to then realise that the wall was covered in about a hundred of them. Asked to be moved and the waiter rudely agreed. Carried on... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
Cannaregio
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.
