We walked in at 7Pm hoping to get a headstart on the dinner before the place gets full. Our plan backfired as this place gets packed at probably 7AM. Hahaha. Brilliant food, even better ambience. Just make sure you carry cash as the place doesn't...More

This wonderful place serves up some of the best arancini I have ever tasted (and having lived in the South of Italy, the bar was set very high). A gorgeous stop-off for cicchetti by the canal, I can't recommend it enough.

We went to this cool bar after our guide adviced us. When we arrived the bar was full of happy people, dancing to the life music that was played. We had a good alcohols and fried fish as snacks. Highly recommend

They have an amazing spread. Fresh seafood galore. All the locals love it. They also have a wonderful al forno menu. House wine Pinot Nero was great. Atmosphere is busy and loud. Perfect Italian by the sea experience.

The restaurant is quite large and extremely busy. We arrived on time for our 8 PM reservation. Still we waited over 15 minutes to get a table. That is half a table, as we had to divide it with another couple. It was impossible to...More

This is a very cool, young and jazzy place to taste local dishes in a super cool atmosphere. It is always busy but worth to spend some time here

My boyfriend and I went here because our AirBnB host recommended it. In general, this whole street is great -- lots of places to go and wander. We especially liked this place. We showed up around 7pm and were able to get a seat, although...More

If you were afraid of getting caught up in tourist trap restaurant don’t fear. Il paradiso perduto is probably the best restaurant I’ve been to in Venice. It’s located in the heart of Cannaregio close to the Jewish ghetto (which I also recommend visiting by...More

This place was recommended by our hotel. It is in a more quiet area of Venice and had good music, lots of people and very good food! Amazing shrimps and nice pasta with artichokes. The menu is only in Italian and the staff doesn't know...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
