My partner and I both love fish and seafood so were very excited about this restaurant. In a very quiet backstreet, with only 18/20 overs inside, we were lucky to get a table without a reservation. Food was excellent, recommended wine was just right, service...More

As we walked toward the restaurant, we quickly left the tourists behind. It was refreshing to explore a quiet, local part of Venice. We arrived shortly after it opened without a reservation and were seated right away. If you're going later in the night or...More

Alla Fransca was recommended to us by a Venetian friend as we wanted to go somewhere quiet but good with my in-laws. This is a place you must book and arrive at the allotted time. The kitchen is small and they don’t churn tables. Or...More

A very nice place, we visited several times, on quite a few visits to Venezia. Good selection of products, in phase with the season. Serious respect for the tastes and flavours of whatever is available from the kitchen. Small wine list, reasonable prices, and competent...More

Revisited this place after really enjoying it last summer. Felt a little bit disappointed. Lovely setting. Friendly service. Scallops over cooked and mains were good but not great. Shame, as we had really looked forward to revisiting. Still a lovely place but not cheap so...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
