I am struggling to find the right title for my review. This restaurant looks like a café inside, but the food is good. I imagine the food is indicative of home cooking of the region, but it all tasted good and the service was friendly...More

A smart blue and white interior sets the scene for simple yet exquisite seafood dishes: pasta with spider crab; of Penne del Doge, with tune, olives, whitebait and capers. Finish with a deliciously potent sgroppine sorbet.

Our experience in no way resembles the reviews (except the most recent). Indifferent sourcing and cooking & a terrible wine list. A huge disappointment. And expensive too. Best to avoid.

This was our second trip to this restaurant. On our first visit, 7 years ago, we had an amazing experience, hence deciding to return to celebrate my 50th Birthday in Venice. We pre-booked a table, and were surprised to find the restaurant half empty on...More

Nice staff, well situated just a supershort walk from the main walkway. Seems to be a bit of a local place. Ok pizza and a nice pasta dish even though it was not what I thought it would be rather I got octopus.

We found this place by mistake, as the restaurant that we intended to go to was fully booked. The waiter recommended that we tried this place instead and I'm so glad he did! It was quite quiet - do not be put off by this,...More

Wonderful service and quality food. We made an early reservation for dinner at 6:30 pm as we were heading to airport early the next morning. Warm greeting by staff and were served in a welcoming slow timeframe as we requested. Appetizer of prosciutto and melon,...More

They are at #174 of the 1,260 Restaurants in Venice but my very personal experience on Thursday 21st september 2107 was awful.They deserve hardly #1074 or #741. The Spritz smelled and tasted badly. The sour sardines (local dish) were not fresh at all and the...More

Best meal in Venice. Expensive, yes a little, but hardly more than other less quality places. Every bite was fantastic. Caprese: the chese was extra smooth and thd tomatoes just right. The seafood risotto was so wonderful, rich and creamy. The salt fish was so...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
