A bit out-of-the-way, so not mobbed by tourists. Excellent menu. Lovely people. Lovely dining room. Popular, so it's best to book.

This restaurant is situated in a nice spot so if the weather is good it’s a great place to sit out and eat . The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a selection of starters about 17 euros each and a range of fish...More

We think this is one of the best restaurants in Venice. The food, service and situation are all excellent. We had my birthday lunch here, I do hope I can upload the photos I took, but they won't do justice to the fabulous Venetian cooking....More

Good service, although you would expect that at this price range, good house wines and interesting food. Thoroughly enjoyed

Probably the best meal we ate in Venice. The service was fantastic. I thought the pecorino pasta with sultanas was delicious. The creme brûlée and Pistachio Bavarian were also excellent as desserts. Expensive for lunch, but you get what you pay for at Da Rioba.

Geared more towards fine dining rather than big pizzas and pastas and therefore more expensive. Not expensive by Venetian fleece you blind standards though, just a noticeably higher bill than from other local places. Very nice food, smallish portions. Broccoli soufflé lovely. I had beef,...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.
