When we were unable to get into Anice Stellato (recommended to us as one of the best places to eat in Venice), we came across this packed restaurant close by and really enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere. A classic Venetian antipasti of salt cod and wet polenta was delicious and the large platter of mixed grilled fish was impeccable.... More

Great fish restaurant with very fresh pasta! We had our last lunch in Venice here before heading to the airport. There was a bustling warm atmosphere with lots of locals and tourists as well, lots of families. I had spaghetti vendole and my boyfriend had the taglietelle with fresh shrimp. Both were wonderful, with a glug of house wine. Nice... More

Excellent small restaurant in a quiet neighbourhood. Good service and great local food. Highly recommended for a low key lunch.

Small but busy restaurant off the main tourist tracks but well worth a visit. Mainly fish based menu but some meat dishes. Everything leaving the small kitchen looked fantastic. Our spaghetti Bolognese was really excellent, well presented and seasoned

Felt so lucky to get a table rather late in lunchtime( having been brusquely turned away at a similar time on the Sunday) and had a nice lunch at the canalside. Told there was no choice-only fried fish. We were glad to get a nice table and a rest. Fish was fine but only one kind and rather expensive. I... More

For our first meal in Venice we chose a restaurant near our hotel and Ai 40 Ladroni seemed to fit the bill. We had the house antipasti which comprised a wide variety of small samples and a very abundant amount of food (we had ordered one antipasti between two of us while the third member of party did not want...

After being turned away at another Ghetto area restaurant that had been recommended to us, we ran across this place and gave it a try. Glad we did. We were the only non-locals when we arrived (early by Italian standards). On the recommendation of our friendly server, we ordered the house sampler--plate after plate of fresh, simply prepared seafood. All... More

We discovered 40 ladroni trough a recommendation of a friend that lived in venice. The restaurant is hidden from tourists and we made a twenty minute walk to get there and it was worth it. We were lucky to get a table outside near by the channel and it was a great meal. We had pasta with crab and tiramisu... More

We were struggling to find anywhere decent on a Friday night in Venice when we happened upon this place, close to our hotel. The staff were really relaxed and informal and good fun, and the food was excellent and fresh. Good VFM too! Would recommend it.

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.
