Well I have to say it wasn't as easy as I would have imagined to find a nice restaurant in Venice. Trust me it felt like finding a needle in a haystack. But lo and behold we found the needle in this restaurant. What a beautiful setting and a lovely looking place. Staff were wonderful and very helpful when asking... More

Lured by the home made pasta sign and cute look, I made the fatal error of not checking tripadvisor. Service was OK although my sparkling water ordered was still tap water. My fish lasagna well.... I like to try new food but this was a few bits of seafood in what was pasta-pancakes. Hot in some places luke-warm in others.... More

I read the recent bad reviews but also the fantastic reviews before and though I'd give it a go. Wasn't disappointed. The grilled scallop starter was amazing and hand made ravioli was lovely. Organic locally produced wine, highly recommend

I give almost exclusively good reviews. Two places in Venice earn the negative side. This is one of them. Very poor meal in a building in which the heat barely worked. I think the soup was out of a can; the ravioli must have come from the frozen section of the grocery store. A 12% service charge for no service.... More

Pretty restaurant, a little different than the rest. Good food and wine. Location is right be the water. Only weird part is they were playing American pop music which took away from the ambiance.

On our first night in Venice we had a dinner with our tour group. We had a vegetable lasagna & spinach ravioli to start. I could have eaten a whole plate of the vegetable lasagna it was so good. Our second course was a filet of Grouper with potatoes & cherry tomatoes. The fish was perfectly cooked & seasoned. We... More

We found this restaurant about 20 years ago and have been perhaps a dozen times since over the years - Venice is not a great place for decent good value food but we considered this to be a decent straightforward trattoria with fairly priced pasta dishes etc. But never again. The food was foul - I had a "Soup of... More

This place was a disappointment. It's strong on atmosphere and quick service, but weak in the areas that matter most. The staff was very nice, but the food wasn't very good. We had been in Italy for 2 weeks, and the food had been great everywhere. Most restaurants are generous with bread and parmesan cheese. Alla Palazinna is not. My... More

We had just an hour to find somewhere to eat before returning to the airport. This was a great place to watch the world bustle past over the Guglie bridge while we had lunch. There is also a very pleasant terrace through the restaurant. The service was very good and they made an effort to get us our meal quickly... More

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.
