Don't miss this restaurant while in Venice. But reserve or dine early as it really is tremendously popular and can be crowded. Food great - seafood risotto for first dish and sea bream for main - both succulent. House wine very drinkable, service amazingly efficent...More

We had fun, we ate well, the service was careful and fast. Everything was good, also the fact of not being just surrounded by tourists was pleasant

We were happy to drop into this pace while walking wandering. We waited about 20 min for a table and I imagine in busy season you'd make a reservation. The food was simple and delicious. The staff was capable in english but it was challenging....More

Try the Pasta alla Sepia Nero! Squid ink pasta is a local specialty. The seafood starter was incredible. The best octopus salad we've every tried. The risotto was creamy and tasty also. Lovely staff who fit us in without a reservation. We shared a table...More

Disinterested servers. The cod was a salty mush. The red house wine was borderline undrinkable, go the extra few euro for a bottle. Pretty disappointed with this place.

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

Karen, I suggest that you call the restaurant in Venice to book a table as I am not the owner. I live in Australia.
