We visited on a Saturday evening and ordered pasta. We realised that pasta in Italy is usually served as a starter but the portions were tiny. We had to order pizzas after to make up the shortfall on the pasta. The staff were miserable but not rude. We would recommend for a snack or lunch stop but not an evening... More

We first went there on the off chance, for a coffee and to rest my legs, I'm getting on a bit and there's a lot of walking in Venice, I was also wearing an eye patch and using a cane, so I needed all the help I could get. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The coffee was excellent... More

One Moretti Toscana 50cl, one coke, one bottle of water, one Fanta, one double coffee=60€. The beard maitre was... More

Great pizza and pasta. Good value for money. Service was nothing special but for the type of place it was ok.

A lovely little bistro on the main area off the grand canal. Great menu for lunch with traditional pasta and pizza and also a burgers and salad option. Good value for money and a great place to people watch.

We had the 'classic' burger. It was just about cooked in the middle. Don't come here if you're overly fussy. Plenty of other places to eat at.

If you like packet uncooked pasta tubes and canned diced tomatoes as the sauce then go here, very disappointed for our first meal in Venice. Coffee was good Add the extra tax to your bill and doesn't make a quick cheap bite to eat. Everyone says to avoid the tourist areas but in Venice that's practically impossible

My husband really enjoyed the sauce on his marguerite pizza. My sauce was spicier on the pepperoni pizza, but I loved it😀Prices are reasonable and staff is fast and attentive. Very small wine and beer portions. Outside tables are very close. Very typical of all the pizza places here. Good family food.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
