Here on vacation. It was our best dining experience in our one week stay. We've typically followed Rick Steves's recommendations, but wanted to branch off and do our own thing. This has helped us on more than a few occasions. Osteria Al Chiceto is a prime example of your quaint/gem/off-the-beaten path type of restaurant not over burdened by tourists. Make... More

We booked a table here for lunch and it was absolutely delicious! The tartar was to die for, so was the salad with soft goat cheese - simple, but somehow just perfect.

Great food and service. We have found that allot of places have poor service I think because we do not speak Italian. But this place made us feel welcome

Nice very small place, good for drinks specially the house wine is wonderful and cheap. Also if you go for the small bits that they put a the front of the entrance those are good. The problem is when you sit and order the 2 or 3 course, food is not tasty, even ordinary they're really nothing special. We ordered... More

Small, cosy restaurant with an excellent/friendly staff and delicious food. Definitely worth going there and try the Venetian specialities: black pasta with cuttlefish, and veal liver venetian style.

We felt like we found a real gem with this restaurant! It is small so we booked and the food was so amazing on the first night that we booked again for the following nights. Our favourites included the goats cheese salad, pumpkin soufflé, spaghetti with clams and pig cheeks (don't knock them til you've tried them!) Our waitress was... More

Had the fixed menu of an appetiser and a main. Food was lovely, the appetiser of octopus, sardines and bacalau was a standout. Stuffed squids and liver with figs were also excellent. Great salad. Lots of wines by the glass. Love to go back and have the cichetti.

This is a tiny osteria, so you need to book. The food was really good - a bit different, beautifully presented and excellent quality. Also good value for money, I particularly recommend the stuffed squid. I would definitely return here.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
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 neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
