The food at this restaurant was some of the best we experienced in Venice. However, the gal waiting on us was very disinterested in being there and did not smile or check on us. You could tell she was put off by some of the...More

Had the cutterfish in black sauce pasta and seafood pasta. Both flavour wise were amazing. However I find the seafood pasta has a lot of broken clamp/muscle shells in it, giving the “sandy” sauce texture. Some clamps still had mud in it. I think they...More

We booked in advance during the day since it is very popular place. The food was tasteful and the price manageable. I had spaghetti scoglio which was amazing. They also serve other dishes and not only seafood. Recommended!

Food was outstanding. I’m still thinking about our visit in May. Call to make a reservation. The people who had been standing in line for hours were not happy when we walked in and were seated.

A reservation is a must. People were queuing up for this place way past 9pm. We phoned on the day and got a slot for the evening but try and phone ahead as they get busy very quickly. It's very small inside but the atmosphere...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
