We had read the reviews and the food and service did not disappoint. Venice is expensive and so is this restaurant. We had better value in Bologna but for Venice at least 4 stars

It's very close to the center of Cannaregio, basically turn left at the Irish Pub, and it's 20 metres away. They have a courtyard, and a room inside, and it backs onto a canal. Super cheap, great service, just wonderful in all regards. We each...More

This was probably the best of the four restaurants we had dinner at in Venice, which is a high accolade given the quality of the other three. First-class seafood, pasta dishes and pizza as well, served by a charming family. It was a Monday evening,...More

We came across this lovely restaurant while exploring the Jewish Quarter -in a quiet lane away from the crowds- The food was delicious, the four of us chose different seafood and no one was disappointed. The staff were friendly and provided fun service.

This neighborhood restaurant has a richly deserved wide visitor following. It very much belies the adage that good local restaurants do not have menus in several languages. The food is exceptional, and the service is very good. They accommodate requests, such as sharing an appetizer...More

Cannaregio
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
