The place work as a bar and a restaurant. We went to enjoy the bar. There's plenty of venetian tapas that you can order as you order your drinks. They serve you in a plate and with plastic cups that you can take outside and...More

Wonderful outdoor summer dining on canal. Enormous and well prepared steak Fiorentina (thick t-bone) with grilled vegetables - excellent! A lot of food for two. Gnocchi ragù was good. People watching was great from outdoor seating on the canal in front. Service was good. Expect...More

This bar is hugely popular and whilst very small inside and a few tables and chairs canal side it still attracts large numbers of people who all sit on the canal side, nearby bridge or the barge moored in front of the bar. Great choice...More

If you want a fun, relaxed place full of young(ish) locals this is it! Cool, canalside drinks and chicetti and you can sit inside, at tables or on the boat. Great, chilled vibe here. I'd recommend.

This canal side restaurant in Canaregio is always busy and for good reason. It is full of atmosphere inside the restaurant and bar and spills over onto the Fondamento. There is even a boat on which customers sit, drink and chat. Although it looks chaotic,...More

During our seven night Venetian adventure we had heard that the Al Timon served a great steak and they weren't wrong. I recommend booking a table in advance as there is limited seating outside. We were seated just as night began to fall and I...More

The restaurant is small and specialised in steak, and if it tickles your fancy bookings are essential. Otherwise I would recommend coming here, ordering a glass of fragolino wine with a plate of cecchetti and sitting out on a boat out the front of this...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

I'd like to make a booking but just called and could not get the person on the phone to understand me at all. I had to give up. If you managed to get an email address I'd be very grateful. Thanks

We arrived right when they opened the restaurant. For one hour, they only serve the bread and meats. As soon as we got there, they made us a reservation for dinner. We did not have any previous contact info for them!
