After a long day in Venice, my friend and I found this restaurant close to the Rialto bridge but down a quieter street, away from the mass of people. We ordered ravioli and salmon and caviar tagliatelle, both of which were delicious. The Bellinis, too,...More

Always seemed busy, good pasta and pizza. We were told the steak was good although we didn't order this. Worth a meal if you're in the area

Just 30 steps away from the crowds down a side street yet is a very quiet comfortable restaurant with superb service, food and very reasonable prices. Great steaks, seafood and pasta dishes. I will return.

The food was great, pasta was really nice and the staff were attentive and friendly. The location was quiet hard to find.

I visited this excellent restaurant last March, and since then I've been on a quest to find out what "Barababao" means. There is an ample quantity of original artwork throughout this quaint and comfortable establishment depicting a somewhat demonic, green-skinned creature who loves wine, food,...More

Aimed at speed, no experience of hospitality. Quality of food is below average. Antipaste di Verdure with peas out of a tin and haricots vert that are overcooked. Grilled scampis were burnt and contained the flavours of other products being prepared on the same grill....More

This restaurant was just around the corner from our B&B and looked appealing. First time we just had pizza and a salad, and the pizza was the best we'd had so far and the salad was crisp and plentiful...also the best Aperol spritzer in all...More

The food was really good and tasty. Also the seafood was fresh. But the waitress has difficulties to explain what is in the food in English. Overall we had a good time and it wasn't price at all.

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
