Small restaurant at the Misericordia canal, not in the centre of Venice, which could be considered as an advantage. Food very good, big choice of wines with different prices (20-400 Euros). Better to have reservation - it was full at the Saturday evening. Friendly staff....More

This intimate family-run osteria on a quiet Cannereggio canal has a small but outstanding menu of Venetian dishes. The housemade pasta is excellent, salads are generous and tasty, and the fish and meat plates were really delicious (curried lamb chops, turbot). The wine list is...More

It’s tough to get a bad meal in Venice. There are so many restaurants that each must strive hard to be competitive and survive. Consequently the Tripadvisor ranking is not as meaningful here as in other places - pricing is the best indicator of the...More

Food average, definitely but not memorable. Apparently rosemary and sun dried tomatoes don't bring as much flavour as one would think. We expected much better at this price point. To be fair, the wines were nice. Service was ok until we asked for the check,...More

This place is in a different level compared to other places we tried in Venice. The restaurant promises modern interpretations of classical Venetian dishes which is exactly what you get. The prices are slightly above many other places, the quality far beyond. The portions are...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

we looked the menu up on line before going to Venice. We went for evening meal and there was no sign of a buffet then.
