The Googled recommendation was more than justified. We had a beautifully presented and tasty meal with good service. We would certainly go again. It was veggie-friendly. It was not the cheapest of meals but not excessive and one felt the quality justified the cost.

In my opinion the 'Upupa' is one of the best restaurants in cannaregio, slightly formal but not too much. Excellent and authentic meals, great selection of wines!

I went to Upupa on my final day in Venice with a Venetian friend. I ordered a simple vegetable dish as I had eaten so much during the week I wanted something light. I was served a delicious 'tower' of seasonal vegetable, perfectly cooked, by...More

Very much enjoyed the food here - the ravioli is the best I've ever had. Nice setting, reasonably priced. The only slight downside is that there wasn't a kid's menu and although our boys shared a dish they could have done with smaller portions (but...More

This restaurant was decent, but for the price of the meals, a disappointment. In addition, the service was slow and they got our order wrong. Overall, our experience was average.

Stumbled across this in the afternoon. Situated in a little square in jewish ghetto and stopped for a drink. Decided to head back for the evening meal. Beautiful fresh food and great service. Plenty of 'specials' to choose from. Recommend highly.

This is great little restaurant in the heart of the Venetian Ghetto. The homemade pasta is really good, and comes with a freshly made and steaming hot pita-like bread. I highly recommend the spaghetti al nero di seppia.

Excellent traditional cuisine in the really heart of the ghetto! Not expensive and very nice staff! Go for it!

The Ghetto is one of our favourite places in Venice - very peaceful and calm and away from the main tourist areas. Have had drinks at the Upupa before but never had dinner there. Very wide choice of dishes - many of them "specials" and...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
