Trattoria Povoledo is just a few doors down our hotel in Venice. The tout of the restaurant convinced us to consider eating there. We asked our Italian tour guide if she would eat there, and she said yes. So, we decided to try it. We started with a small flute of Bellini which was very good. I ordered seafood soup... More

Lovely restaurant. Touristy but food is good quality and reasonably priced. Decent vino and good selection of pasta and fish. Friend ordered the very tasty vegetarian pizza. I ordered the Gorgonzola pasta. Smack in the middle of tourist central but has a charm that is intoxicating. Dined there twice.

We hadn't asked or been approached by him, should have realised by this that may be this was not the... More

We arrived in Venice on Christmas Day and found this wonderful place for dinner close to our hotel. The risotto with seafood and the ravioli with gorgonzola and walnuts were excellent. They also have great desserts, however we too full to try. The staff were very friendly and suggested a wine with dinner that we really enjoyed. I would definitely... More

Trattoria Povoledo looks small from the outside but it is much bigger inside. I was sure of my choice of restaurant when I saw there were many diners inside. My tuna meal was simply delicious. The waiters were attentive to my requests. I can easily recommend this Venice restaurant.

Following a recommendation from our nearby hotel, my wife and I were impressed with the Italian meal here. For our appetizer, we share a plate of assorted meats and cheeses. For our pasta, we sample the lobster with linguini--succulent. Tried the house while wine also.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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 shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
