A bit hard to find, but once you do it's worth it. Comfortable local feel and excellent food. Giant beers didn't hurt :).

We wandered into this restaurant after going to the Jewish Ghetto. It was a lovely lunch and the Gluten Free Pizza was really great! We ate in the courtyard outside and really enjoyed our time. Friendly service, good house wine and Hubbie enjoyed his spaghetti.

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
