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

Cosy place, good cichietti but i cannot give more than 3 stars because both the waiter and waitress were honestly the rudest people i have ever encountered. Each time i ordered cichetti for my husband and myself they made me feel awful, giving me a...More

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.

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of our host in Venice, and it usually pays to follow the advice of locals! We both had the fish of the day, which was Sea Bream, and it was really excellent. The house white went very well...More

We had lunch here. The house red wine was bad. It actually tasted like it went bad. The pastas were average. The liver was not good. When we asked to see a dessert menu after we finished our entrees, the waiter told us that we...More

I recommend eating every night in the area East of the Rialto Bridge. It is quieter, less touristy, and the restaurant choices are fabulous. Osteria da Alberto is fantastic! The house wines are great so you don't need to bother spending money on a bottle....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

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