Charming place, nice decoration, cosy atmosphere, beautiful waiters BUT very disappointing menu: Mainly fish - but not really the Venitian musts (no cod fish for example) - and only 3 desserts. Very small portions. Good point: the meatballs as appetiser. All in all I wouldn't recommend it.

What an oasis in the turmoil of Venice! A small menu, but all expertly prepared. They don't cater for large parties like hen nights, so it's quiet, and the decor is as it was in the 1930's. There is a McDonalds next door that looks awful in comparison. The house speciality is Polpette - a delicious meatball in breadcrumbs -... More

It's not easy to have excellent food experiences in Venice. They're focused on other kind of emotions, but Ca D'Oro alla Vedova is a superb experience. Lunch has to start with the meat polpette with red wine. The seppie alla veneziana and the polenta with small cuttlefish are a must. The staff & service represents the typical italian "we're the...

Loved this place, great choices, great food and super service. We ate at 9pm and the menu was perfect. You can either stand and have lovely wine and Chiccheti at the bar or sit and enjoy a more relaxing meal. Very much a local favourite and a great atmosphere too. Go on try it you will not be disappointed! We... More

Unassuming bar-restaurant with really great people and good food. Good spot for a quick meal, you can stand at the bar or sit. Fresh food, entertaining wait staff.

Delicious octopus salad with potatoes, perfectly cooked, the octopus was tender and the grilled tomatoes were delicious too. Charming atmosphere and friendly service. I come here each time I visit Venice, I just love this place. All dishes are freshly prepared and delicious, sit down meal or standing at the small bar.

This is a a very popular terrific cicchetti bar and restaurant. You can stand by the bar in a tiny space and enjoy a glass of wine or two with cicchetti bar snacks that are delicious. Alternatively, and you must book, you can sit in the restaurant area and enjoy a delicious meal. I had a mixed plate of about... More

This is one of the places I was really looking forward to visit. Before our trip to Venice, I checked several sources of inspiration for good restaurants in Italy. One name was in all of them – the Vedova. We liked the place from the moment we stepped in: cozy atmosphere, nothing fancy, but with a warm feeling and very... More

We ended up here as in January most of our favourite haunts were closed. This ended up with our best meal of the holiday. The place is cosy and welcoming. We ordered the meatballs to start...as good as the claims! Fried but still light and tasty. Then I had the lasagne and my boyfriend the amtriciana, both were so delicious... More

Having read about it's great 'cichetti' we put this on our itinerary. We got thoroughly scolded for taking a table to order our food, not understanding we had to stand at the non existent bar. Too many other good establishments with welcoming hosts to bother with this one.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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 shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
