This was the best meal I had in Venice, hands down. It was around the corner from the flat I was staying in. I stopped in not sure what to expect and I was blown away. The service and food were of high quality. I...More

The restaurant is out of the way from the main thoroughfare. It had nice ambiance and was quiet. We sat outside under a vine covered awning. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely go back again!

I and my wife share grilled scallops. They were unforgettably tasty. Mine clams pasta was perfect with house white wine. My wife had sea food pasta in tomato sauce, which was also delicious.

Outside under a vine canopy, two hours off relaxed dining with wait staff that was a pleasure to be around.

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

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

Many at La Colonna spoke English very well. But, you could also try Al;a Madonna, about a block off the Rialto Bridge. Also very good!
