finally... after some rather disappointing dinners in Venice, we had our best so far here in the Osteria da Rioba. the raw fish appetizer was delicious, as were the gnocchi with shrimps, but the coda di rospo really made the day with its crispy nuts...More

It’s tough to get a bad meal in Venice. There are so many restaurants that each must strive hard to be competitive and survive. Consequently the Tripadvisor ranking is not as meaningful here as in other places - pricing is the best indicator of the...More

Food average, definitely but not memorable. Apparently rosemary and sun dried tomatoes don't bring as much flavour as one would think. We expected much better at this price point. To be fair, the wines were nice. Service was ok until we asked for the check,...More

This place is in a different level compared to other places we tried in Venice. The restaurant promises modern interpretations of classical Venetian dishes which is exactly what you get. The prices are slightly above many other places, the quality far beyond. The portions are...More

Perhaps been there in the rush hour: poor service (waiter was very busy) and very expensive bill for what we ate. Have to say, though, that the place is well located, the street atmosphere charming and the plate presentation very artistic

One of my favorite restaurants in Cannaregio. All courses were amazing especially the scallops, fish and pasta dishes

It's tough to find somewhere in Venice where you can have a quiet canalside meal away from the throngs of tourists... but this amazing spot in the Cannelegio section of Venice was perfect! Great service, amazing pasta and seafood and imaginative dishes were all part...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

we looked the menu up on line before going to Venice. We went for evening meal and there was no sign of a buffet then.
