Fodor's Review

Off the main concourse, on one of the most romantic fondamente (canalside streets) of Cannaregio, this family-run bacaro-trattoria is the place to stop for fairly priced, satisfying fare, though service can feel indifferent and, occasionally but not often, the kitchen is a bit inconsistent. Narrow columns rise from the colorful tile floor, dividing the room into cozy sections. There are also a few outdoor canalside tables. Classics like seppie in nero (squid in its ink) are enriched with such offerings as sarde in beccafico (sardines rolled and stuffed with breadcrumbs, herbs, and cheese) and tagliatelle with prawns and zucchini flowers. They also serve several meat dishes, including a tender beef fillet stewed in Barolo wine.

Anice Stellato Review

This restaurant is one of our two favorite in Venice. Well out of the tourist fray, I love the walk to the restaurant, along the quiet walkways. The interior of the restaurant is cosy and welcoming, but it's also a treat to eat outside on a fine evening, right on the canal. All of the seafood and fish we've had here has been delicious, though I probably would save the cicchetti appetizers for another kind of restaurant. But we've particularly

enjoyed the grouper (cernia) and linguine with astice (spiney lobster, out of the shell).

A plesant stay near church Madonna dell'Orto

It is a little bit difficult to find but you will be rewarded by the very fine taste of the plate of fish (as usual in Venice), the good level of the service and the charm of the fondamenta della Sensa. In winter, after a long run, it represents a welcome stop. In summer, you will enjoy the peace and the calm of the little canal nearby. I went there twice in 2007 and I will return.
