Everything is excellent here: food is like a master piece of art: on your plate and in your mouth. You really feel like a welcomed guest and the staff is fully in control and takes time for you. Molto bene!

I can heartily recommend this place! The staff were just so very attentive and friendly. Light, friendly and a good sense of humor. And above all that, the food is very good!

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
