First: Le Balthazar closed up a couple of years ago and now there is only Gam Gam as a kosher meaty restaurant. Second: finally a kosher pizza store opened in Venice, right opposite Gam Gam, and it is called Gam Gam Goodies. Also this place is run by Chabad and sells kosher products like cheeses, milk, drinks and food. And... More

My husband and I ate here two nights running in September as it was the best food we had found in our trip to Venice. We are not Jewish and you certainly don't have to be to enjoy eating here. The portions are generous and attractively presented and it was all very tasty. We were given complimentary bruschetta and the... More

Ate here in August with my 12 year old daughter. Beautiful outdoor seating in a courtyard. The food was just wonderful and would highly recommend it! The staff however, was extremely slow! Great food whether you keep kosher or not. Right in the heart of the Venice Ghetto.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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 shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
