Contrary to the last review this was the best food we had in Venice. Packed out with locals and the best pecorino cheese and chestnut pasta I’ve had. My wife had the gnocchi and crab which was as nice. Carafes of house red and white...More

One of the worst restaurants in Venice, mislead by other reviews. May be they create fake ones. 2 course dinner all served within few mins. The chef wasn’t busy preparing the dishes but looked and tasted like microwaved. My wife ordered Gnocchi with crab, it...More

This place is small and popular so book in advance. Fish and pasta very good. Extensive wine list (too big, it took them half an hour to find the bottle we ordered!) and waiters insist on getting the man to try it even if a...More

We have been coming to Venice for over twenty years, with nearly thirty visits, and just this year heard of this place; we are sorry to have missed it the past few years. The food is as good as any in Venice, and the portions...More

This has, over time, become one of my favorite restaurants for quality food and service in Venice. Da Rioba is not fancy; rather, it is a family restaurant that executes extremely good, simple fare, always with a slight twist. The food is extremely fresh and...More

A couple of people recommended this venue, we stopped by for lunch. Two course set menu 26 euros. We both settled on the non-fish menu which was advertised as a spinach, walnut and cheese salad. Some spinach, little cheese and no walnuts were served. Second...More

Our guide from a tour earlier in the week suggested this restaurant as a great place to sit on the canal and enjoy good food in a neighborhood not crazy with tourists. Right on all accounts. We did lunch here as it was easier to...More

My general impression of Venice restaurants is that the farther away from the general tourist areas, the higher the value of otherwise exceptional experiences. Ostaria Da Rioba flies in the face of that proposition, as it turned out to be our most expensive food bill...More

We stumbled across this place on our first night in Venice. The place was quiet as it was fairly early, but the staff were friendly and welcoming. We sat outside by the canal, and as the sunset the place really came into its own with...More

If you like being hungry after an expensive meal, go here! The food was good, but, it was more presentation than food. The meal was expensive and we left hungry. The monkfish was served on a bed of greens with sun-dried tomatoes, except there were...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

we looked the menu up on line before going to Venice. We went for evening meal and there was no sign of a buffet then.
