It's my fourth time in this great restaurant, where you can be sure nothing will ever go wrong. It's a place where you can also have the Venetian classics: bigoli in salsa, the linguini al nero di seppia, or the baccalà mantecato with polenta. In...More

OMG they were right... this place does have the best meatball cicchetti! Slightly crispy on the outside, and soft and meaty in the middle. My stomach thanks you.

We were exposed to this restaurant on a tour. We thoroughly enjoyed their famous polpette, fried meatballs! It’s like a glorified hush puppy with meat in it! This was a staple in Venice in years past. I think it’s 4th generation so very authentic. The...More

We found this by chance for the first lunch in Venice. I ordered one meatball as an appetizer and liver and onions with polenta. My spouse ordered spaghetti with meatballs. Everything was great! Fine food and friendly helpful staff.

Horrible experience! They hate Americans! I went there because I thought it was authentic. They refused service for us, because they thought we were tourists, even though they had seats available. My wife is Italiano. They lied to us when we arrived at their restaurant...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

I gave them a ring but make sure you are booked. Because when we arrived the lady didn’t really made the booking but staff was lovely and accommodated us.

Not for the bar. Recommend you stay for dinner - you'll need a reservation for that. Gets very busy on Sunday evenings too.
