Cheap wine, great pasta, awesome tiramisu. Book a table as it's rightly pretty busy. Best meal we had in Venice.

We were looking forward to a return visit after a year and ai Promessi Sposi did not disappoint. Charming staff ( very attractive girls included ) and excellent seafood. I had to ask what Crespellini are ( small scallops in fact ) and they were delicious - served in their shells with, I think, oil and garlic. The Fritto Misto... More

This restaurant came recommended by a friend along with a long list of others, but this one was my favorite. We had a mixed clams and mussels starter as well as the burrata and fantastic house wine. My main dish was the salmon which was fresh, tender, and with a tinge of brine. We ordered all of the desserts and... More

This was our first evening meal during our trip to Venice over Christmas, and it did not disappoint. Friends had highly recommended it, so we were first in the door when they opened for the evening -- and good thing, because it filled up very quickly. The house wine was fantastic, the service excellent -- and the seafood fresh and... More

Ai Promessi Sposi is one of those delightful restaurants in the little lanes of Venice that you need to find. Though it is only a few steps away from the Strada Nova you will only find it if you are lucky and enjoy exploring. It is well worth looking though as the food is excellent and reasonably priced. When we... More

1. This restaurant is located at a back alley near the tourist route and not so easy to find. 2. However, this restaurant is popular and fills up very quickly so it is best to make reservation or be there when they open business. 3. Cuisine offered is more regional Venetian dishes and the waiter patiently translated the entire menu... More

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.
