We enjoyed our evening. 1st night in Venice tried this restaurant on the strength of trip advisor. We asked for the window table it was not a problem. We had a 3 course meal, 3 glasses of wine and 2 Litres of good local blonde Italian (lager). The staff were very personable, brought a few extras without asking 131.00 euro... More

Heres a tip, if there's a guy out front trying to convince people that walk past to come in, it's generally a bad sign. Pasta was dry, bland and expensive. My girlfriend ordered the crawfish pasta, instead they brought her prawn pasta. Was the worst restaurant so far in Italy, and was the most expensive.

The tripadvisor reviews for this restaurant vary widely. My wife and I went here for an evening meal when in Venice at the end of March. I hadn't read the reviews before I went. The set menu was quite cheap at around 12 Euro for 2 courses. (that is quite cheap by Venetian standards) The food was well prepared and... More

My husband and I had lunch at this restaurant during our 3 day stay in Venice and absolutely loved it. Pasta was delicious, probably our favourite in Venice. I know some reviews said this restaurant was overpriced, however I thought it was extremely reasonably priced and definitely on par with the other restaurant in Venice. This may have been due...

The service was absolutely horrible, the waiter treated us with arrogance and we received two prawns for a king prawns spaghetti plate, also when we asked for extra parmesan, they gave it to us for one minute at least, then passed it to the other clients whithout even asking, which was so disrespectful.Overpriced and bad service, never coming there again.

They took 16.5 euros and gave an unpleasant taste with an unhappy night. It is legally tricking people and stealing from them. The most disappointing restaurant in Venice with the rudest waiters in it!!

Feel this restaurant relies on its location to survive. Prosecco cost 25 euros, bruschetta was dry and uninteresting and the gnocchi was definitely out of a prepack. Staff were not very welcoming but rather pushy. Would be surprised if any tourist returns after initial visit.

First restaurant we went to (for lunch). It was ok but this was the worse restaurant we went to over our 5 days break in Venice. Service could be better, pizza not the best and drink pricey. What done it for me was the service charge (4 euro) and sitting in charge (3 euro each) added to bill. After this... More

We popped here as we were looking for somewhere to eat, the lady outside was very nice & the restaurant had quite a few tables taken. We chose a table just inside the window where we could look outside, partly to keep our toddler entertained. Service was quite prompt, but it was apparent that our male waiter had no patience...

I was there and asked two dishes: gnocchi and lasagna. 1000ml of red wine and 1 bottle of water. 55 euros. It was delicius - cant denied it. But 17 euros for a ordinary wine, plus 12% and 1.50 euro/person? No way. Last time. The lasagna alla bolognese was really delicius, but 55 euros for this meal is too much.

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.
