This place was recommended to us by our nearby hotel as being a favourite with locals as well as better-informed tourists. We recommend advance booking as we were lucky to get in on Sunday evening so we reserved a table for the following night. These...More

We were lucky enough to get a table without reservation but if you are in Venice it would be best to book as we saw many people disappointed not to be as lucky as us. I had the squid ink pasta, a revelation, I never...More

A real local's restaurant, despite being close to SS Giacomo & Paulo with its tourist attractions. Best indicator of the quality was a group of gondoliers enjoying their lunch here. Great food - a lovely seafood risotto - and very drinkable house wine at an...More

True Italian food! Really fantastic food, good service, and friendly people! Really good food is not easy to find in Venice. You have to normally get completely out of the tourist areas but not in this case. Alberto is a close walk to all the...More

A very grumpy barman informed us at 11:57 we would have to come back in 10 minutes before we could sit down which put us off. We did come back though as we didn't want a touristy lunch and get ripped off. We sat down...More

This bustling osteria offered typical Venetian fare in what seemed like an authentic, nontouristy atmosphere. We went for lunch and tables were filled with Venetians of all sorts, regulars and one-timers coming in for both the regular daily menu and the specials. Service was pleasant...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
