We had the most delicious seafood dinner in Venice at the Trattoria Bar Pontini tonight. Prices were very reasonable, especially taking into account the generous portions. Food-wise, you will (almost certainly) NOT be disappointed. Your experience at this establishment will be further enhanced if you...More

Really delicious food, quick and nice service, big portions. Fish plate was simply the best. We were lucky to get a table the moment we came inside from the street. When we were leaving an hour later there was a considerable queue at the entrance....More

From the moment we walked in we couldn’t have been more warmly welcomed. The staff were so lovely, able to advise us without being pushy. The food we ordered was delicious. We asked for 2 tiramisu for dessert but were told to only have 1...More

We go to Pontini rather often for lunch. We went again yesterday and it was, as usually, great. The service is wonderful. And the baccala alla vicentina and the scallop pasta with cheese (very unusual in Venice :-) were divine. I really recommend it!

First restaurant we went in Venice. Cosy place. I ordered the spaghetti with mixed seafood (prawns, clams and mussels). I certainly got what I wanted (too hungry and forgot to take a picture). For the second main, I ordered the Creamy Codfish (see picture). It...More

So glad we made a reservation as the queues were forming very early in the evening. Really decent food (especially the seafood). Very reasonably priced.

It’s a lovely cosy place. Food is excellent. Not to be missed. Staff really helpful and friendly. If you don’t want to be disappointed better to do a reservation.

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
