I do not recommend this restaurant. The food is bad, it was loud, the ambiente is old and definetily not beautiful. The service is quite unfriendly. I will never visit this restaurant again even not for drinking.

We were looking for a restaurant at a very busy time of the evening for dinner. This one had lots of availability. Now we know why. We had pasta that was gummy...the worst and seafood that was inedible. We didn't even eat it. And it was the most expensive dinner we had in Venice. I see that there are some... More

I grabbed a bite for dinner in this restaurant and it was good. My pizza was good but nothing special. The location is prime though so close the train station and overlooking the Grand Canal.

We only drank here, we stood otside in the evening. The restaurant was awesome. We could relax here and just enjoy the crowded atmosphere. Near Ponte degli Scalzi, we had a very nice view. I recommend you Aperol Spritz ( served with a large green olive in it ) and hot chocolate! Next time we will come and eat here,... More

We ate here two nights in a row on our trip to Venice.. The food was lovely and plentiful, and the staff are wonderful.. It wasn't over priced like most places in Venice. We also finished off our holiday by drinking cappuccino outside in the sun while we waited for out taxi to pick us up.

Had to put in a review as even after a month, the other half is raving about the seafood pasta this place did. It was a busy restaurant near the central station, small but cosy. Food was amazing- we wanted to come back to Venice just to eat here again!

Past few days my wife and I visited a few restaurants and found Ai Scalzi friendly customer service but more importantly the food quantity and quality very good value. Enrico and Aurora

Cute restaurant in a good location. It is next to the train station and Grand Canal, close to many hotels. The food and service were good. We had the minestrone soup and spaghetti with garlic and oil. They have indoor and outdoor seating, but it was raining and pretty late when we ate there so we opted to sit indoors.... 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.
