great pasta, fish, and good wine. Was a great lunch stop near the square and service was great in how they deboned the fish we ordered. Good spot.

Tasty recipes: the fish lasagna with White sauce was surprisingly food for my wife. Pasta with scallops and mushrooms was very delicate. Light and good mixer fried fish venetian style and huge, yet light, tiramisù. Always crowded because it's worthy: book It in advance.

The restaurant is located right next to the canal in a less busy area of Venice. The food was amazing especially the seafood spaghetti! Aperol spritz for 3€ also! Would highly recommend this restaurant with amazing service also :)

Top top service + food + location The waitress really gave a lot to make it a gifted moment. I’d only recommend if you’re around.

We only had a wonderful salad for lunch, but this experience suggests that the restaurant would be a great place for dinner. It was very pleasant sitting along the canal and service was excellent. We wish we could have gotten back for dinner.

Popped in for a late lunch to this lovely restaurant. Set outside by the canal. Food was great and service impeccable. Salmon pasta was absolutely divine! I’m still thinking about it. Also, tiramisu for two was huge and delicious 😄

The restaurant was so nice next to the bridge. We pass there by chance whilst having a walk around the area. There was a queue but we still tried. We waited for 20-30 mins to get a table. The waitress was nice, she’s attentive. We...had the seafood pasta ,pasta with squid ink, and the gambas (it’s the menu) . It was really good! Highly recommended!!! The gambas melts in your mouth. 🤤🤤 We ate there twice without a reservation. (I recommend to get a reservation since it easily gets full) . The price was correct. We had tiramisu as well, the best I had in my life so far.🤌🏼🤌🏼More

Loved the vibe of this restaurant!! We had a great lunch and could enjoy the view on the canal. The seafood pasta is incredibly tasty and the tiramisu is so good!!!!! The tiramisu is big enough to be shared for 2 people. It is honestly...a good value for money! We will definitely go back. Only con: they charge for bread.More

A busy place - book a table in advance is a good advise for this place - for a reason: excellent views, superb food and great service for a reasonable price. We had a great seafood menu and loved every course. Some local intelligence told...us to try their tiramisu - which we did and it was truly excellent! In a nutshell: don’t miss this place when in Venice!!More

Really good home cooking style food for - especially by Venice standards - very affordable prices. Try the fish lasagna and the spaghetti also scoglio - they are both fantastic. Nice location right at the canal too. Book ahead at least one day - place...is booked out every night - or expect a long wait.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

It's right on a canal, but there are many canals in Venice! I'm afraid I don't know the starting place or route of the Carnival. Specifically, Bar Pontini is on the Canale di Canareggio, near where it intersects with the... More
