We were staying virtually above this restaurant and had walked by many times. It was always packed. Booked a table inside for Saturday evening at 7pm. The menu is in Italian but what we didn't understand the friendly waiter happily translated for us. We shared...the amazing seafood starter and then had individual mains to follow. Everything was freshly cooked and tasted amazing. House wine is also very drinkable. Couldn't fault anything - so 10 out of 10 ! Go, you won't be disappointed.More

I was told it was not as before and it is true. Average quality, unreasonably expensive and rude staff. Unpleasant experience.

I have always be a fan of this glorious place since the Nineties! The food hasn't changed but better during the year, and it's still a place for very genuine Venetian food in a lively athmosfere. Unfortunately the last management is rude and unprofessional, and...not able to welcome and arrange you properly. From 5 to 3 stars, in my hearth.More

I had a very unpleasant experience in this restaurant. A friend booked a table two weeks in advance, the result was that we were obliged to change the plans because the host mistreated us accusing us to be liars about the reservation and in a...very VERY impolite way. Luckily in Venice this was the only bad experience, we have the best client serve just 10 meters away.More

The crowd seemed to be a mix of locals and tourists. We do speak Italian, but had a little problem with the menu because the dialect was different that what we are use to. Our waitress took the time to go over the menu with...us even though the place was busy and crowded.More

The cuisine was subtle yet refined in a vibrant back canal. Loved the seafood lasagna and the quantities were more than enough. Prices were surprisingly very modest however service needed more personnel as responses where slow and there were very few menu, non in English.

Very nice experience. Fresh high quality fish. Friendly staff and affordable prices. I would really recommend this restaurant.

Beautiful location out in the sun by the canal. The menu is mostly fish so if your kids don’t like fish there is basically a cheese pasta dish (cooked in front of you) and some veal. The cheese pasta dish was 20 euros but was...cold - because it is being cooked out in the open in this large cheese dish and the air makes it cold. We sent it back and they made us another one (when we just wanted it heated up) which was basically cold again. Waiting for this to be sorted out our food went cold. The manager came out and asked how it was and we told him it was cold and he said ‘nobody else complains about our food’ and walked off. This was rude and arrogant. The waitress said he was her brother and there’s a reason he is kept in the kitchen! They refused to take it off the bill. Anyway. You go if you want to, we certainly won’t be going again.More

I'm very surprised by all the negative reviews here, mostly from foreign tourists. Paradiso perduto is a Venice institution and everyone from the city has eaten there at some point, for very good reasons: it's relaxed and authentic atmosphere, huge portions, great food sourced locally...(you won't find pizza or carbonara here - only authentic Venetian cuisine with fresh produces) and friendly staff. I can't stress enough how good their menu is - I haven't found yet a single restaurant with so many local specialties. I really recommend the mixed fish antipasto since it has a bit of everything, otherwise you won't make a mistake by ordering baccalà mantecato and polenta, capesante, cappelunghe and sarde in saor. Come here if you are into seafood and want to try the best baccalà mantecato in all of Venice, stay away if you are just looking for average generic Italian food such as pasta bolognese.More

We got disappointed. The place was suggested, hovever, not fulfilled our expectations. Maybe it is better to take a seat outside and enjoy the view with a drink. Service is fine, however dishes are too oily and greasy. Not enjoyable.

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
