An okay place, not crowded with people. The service was not very good and the food was touristic, not the Italian quality I was expecting.

After being turned away from a number of restaurants higher up on our list (were stupid enough to think we can just waltz in without a reservation), and being soaked by a heavy summer rain, exhausted and stinky, we chanced upon the door of La...More

We were recommended to this restaurant by our Airbnb host, and were not disappointed. Service was very friendly and the food was excellent. The pesto sauce is by far the best we have ever tasted, and the scallopine was very tender. Would highly recommend eating...More

The place is in a quiet area and has really great food. The outdoor seating is in the shade which was nice to get out of the heat. The food was all fresh, my friends and I all got pasta for around 10 euro.

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

Many at La Colonna spoke English very well. But, you could also try Al;a Madonna, about a block off the Rialto Bridge. Also very good!
