As a first dinner we tried this restaurant which had also participated in the television program of "i 4 ristoranti" of Borghese. Good dishes, very friendly staff, normal service, fair price.

Facing out onto one of many canals the Ogio is typically unpretentious inside. That said they had a problem keeping the door shut which made it a wee bit cold. Service is good. Delicious Prosecco and I had very decent red wine. The calamari with...black squid ink was the softest I have ever it and so delicious. Slight shame was that the accompanying veg was a bit cold. She had scallops which again you could not fault. So tender and succulent. I am not a risotto fan always finding it a bit mushy. But what the hell we both ordered it. The prawn and the leak just combined so well and blew me away. Delicious. Very good meal and well worth a visitMore

We booked for the next day having strolled past Ogio one evening. The location beside the Cannaregio is wonderful on a warm October evening. We were made very welcome by Armin our waiter who turned out to be a star. The prices of dishes are...very reasonable and we enjoyed ours very much. The food is good honest fare, nothing unnecessarily flashy. The house wine was excellent. We would have returned had we a longer stay in Venice.More

I cannot provide any details about the food from this location as we did not stay for the food. The staff were attentive and happy to have us even though we were only having a drink. They advised us about their spritz menu and even...offered an alternative, it was a great location to be in lots happening on the water and off the beaten track but beside one of the canals. The toilets were clean and the spritz was reasonably priced so it provided a great happy hour venue whilst we decided what we would do for the evening.More

I’d read a review in the Guardian that sung the praises of this restaurant. I like food and put effort into finding affordable examples of local cuisine wherever I go. This was more than terrible, it was expensive and inedible. Any fish related dish was,...no pun intended, fishy. My wife had the duck ragout and even that was a bit fishy. WTF? They felt bad that we barley touched our food and offered us some free Grappa but I was worried that it too, might be fishy. We turned them down. You should too.More

Dropped in here on our way to the restaurant for dinner. The aperol spritz were reasonable priced and of a good size. Staff were happy to serve us even though we weren't staying for a meal.

Very good scallops for dinner. Bruschetta was very good as well. Small place, but good atmosphere and a very friendly staff.

The majority of the reviews on TripAdvisor (and some other review sites) are describing a restaurant that used to be on Campo dei Gesuiti. This version of Ogio is on Fondamenta dei Ormesini, so does not really seem to be the same place. I visited...recently and was extremely disappointed. Although attractively priced because of the 20% discount for booking the food pretty bad, overcooked in places, all over salted (except for one thing which was completely unsalted). Benjamin our waiter was very friendly and attentive (but also bears a striking resemblance to the photo of recent reviewer 'Binyam'). Tellingly, during our 2 hour visit, no other customers came in to the restaurant. I wish them the best, and hope they return to the standards of the old Ogio, but based on my recent visit I would strongly recommend against dining here.More

We came here for lunch and had a great meal. Very generous portions of freshly prepared food (which you can see being prepared if you sit inside). The risotto was very good, as was the mozzarella and prosciutto and the bruschetta. However, please be aware...that this place has a one man kitchen, so things do not move quickly. But, patience is rewarded.More

Came in here because it was very close to our hotel, had an inexplicable 4 star rating on this site and was offering 20% off. Well the space is beautiful, tasteful and well decorated. We even had the whole restaurant to ourselves. I mean I...get the Italian we leave you alone while you eat, hang out, drink etc. but geez oh man getting one persons attention proved to be tougher than one would think. Ordered the risotto (primi platti) oh no says the waiter that’s for two people, ok, I will just have it as my main dish then. Well it never came and then the kitchen staff were already packing/cleaning. Womp. This was honestly the most dissatisfying meal I ate in this entire country. Food was bland (the little bit I did actually get to eat) not worth it.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
