This place is great. Lots of great homemade fresh typical venetian food. Especially recommended for seafood lovers but also wonderful homemade pasta. The place is always packed so it's advisable to book a table in advance. They don't take online reservations and don't answer to Facebook messages so I suggest calling them on +39 041 720581. The menu is only... More

The place is very nice, the food is delicious and the service very welcoming. Their seafood pasta is the most delicious pasta of that kind, that we 've ever had. They also have a great variety of fresh and yummy cicchetti. It 's getting a bit crowded during the nights, so if you are interrested for this place, it would... More

We may have just made the mistake of going on Saturday for lunch - the place was heaving! We ended up at a small table outside in the rain. Food was good, but not amazing. Service was very slow - especially to get the check at the end. A good experience, but not as amazing as I expected from the... More

After our visit to the Venice Ghetto we decided to try the different bars in this street. Once we came to Paradiso Perduto and saw all of the delicious food, we asked for a table but they were fully booked. Nevertheless you can order some drinks and cicchetti to eat outside by the channel. Overall the restaurant gave us a... More

Popped in for prosecco and Chichester. Lots of staff but nobody wanted to help us. With a struggle managed to get drink and a snack but the food was stone cold and not worth the trouble. Suspect locals get better treatment but a smile and a welcome would cost nothing.

We spent a week in Venice looking for an authentic Italian, preferably Venetian, place but found it very difficult. As the population swells at times to 20 tourists to each 'local', restaurants obviously cater to an international clientele and most places offer the standard fare to satisfy this market. I'm giving this place 4 stars as: the staff we spoke... More

We were staying one canal over in Cannaregio and found this place by accident when strolling around in the evening looking for somewhere for a late-ish night beer by the canal. We were instantly taken by the buzzy but relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the food that we could see being served to diners. We booked for a couple of... More

If you are exploring this area of Venice, a bit off the most touristy tracks, and want to treat yourself with a truly venetian gastronomic experience, you should definitely try this place out. Especially recommended for fish lovers.

My wife and I went to this location because we heard it was a bit more authentic than most places in town (that serve pizza, pasta, and other Americanized foods). We were not disappointed. A plate of antipasti with grilled vegetables & assorted seafood (sardines, anchovies, octopus, calamari, prawns?) was the perfect lunch. Friendly service, cash only.

Sunday lunch to meet up with friends in Venice for the weekend to celebrate our great friends' 30th wedding anniversary. Imagine our consternation to discover as we set out to walk there from St Marco that we were joined by several thousand marathon walkers! Not content with getting in our way it transpired that they were heading in the same... More

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.
