I had high expectations for this restaurant but was let down the moment we waked in. There were a bunch of reservations on the walls above tables and it was clear that the staff was overwhelmed. The only person to stay calm was our waiter,...More

Good atmosphere and staff was nice. However the food was really disappointing . Fish was not fresh and 3.50 euros per person for a basket of old bread it is not acceptable for not particularly cheap price. Definitely not recommended and not going back for...More

This was hands down our favorite restaurant we ate at in Italy. We ended up making reservations while we were there for the next night and ate dinner there twice. The lasagna was out of this world absolutely the best I’ve ever had. My husband’s...More

Very stylish place but the food was not good. Pasta undercooked with a tasteless seafood sauce - a bad day in the kitchen.

We came across this lovely restaurant by accident but the chiccetti were amazing. We didn't eat a full meal as the place was absolutely packed with families having lunch. There are a limited number of tables on the canal side.

We shared a plate of whole fish (first time for us, with the heads and all!). But it was really good. The best part of the place was the atmosphere though. Very laid back! Loved it!

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
