Great place with delicious Italian food and good wine selection. The owners are friendly and welcoming. It is nice to be off the main tourist paths.

We found this restaurant by chance. It had a lovely atmosphere and a free table, so we decided to stay to celebrate my birthday with a dinner. The waiter, a charming man knows his job. The menu is created of local food. We had to...More

This little place in Cannaregio is a cracker. Only a few tables inside but you can sit next to the canal and watch life go by. As there were only a couple of people at the restaurant it was really quite low-key, relaxed and romantic....More

Late dinner at Alla Fontana, lovely calm place. Home made pasta tasted delicious . The Tiramisu not the best I have ever tried, very buttery and heavy. Of course, the matter of taste. Our waiter was kind and patient with wine recommendation. Overall, positive experience...More

This restaurant was recommended to us as a "local" place. Tuna was flavorless. Otherwise, food was generally "okay". However, the sun beats down on the outdoor tables and the umbrellas don't provide much coverage. Wait staff was friendly.

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
