Join A Secret Italy

Our go-To Restaurants in Venice

by Andre

My wife and I go to Osteria da Alberto, in Cannaregio, for lagoon seafood cuisine. Family-run with great house wines.

We also love Ristorante La Colonna, also in Cannaregio. The chef sometimes walks around the restaurant and visits tables asking how the food was.

And whenever we can get in, we also try to visit Ristorante Il Milion, also in Cannaregio. The original floor was walked upon by Marco Polo. Great lagoon fare. We always, but always, try to eat deep inside the neighborhoods and stay away from the large piazzas.

Buon appetito.

Maria's reply: Thank you so much for your review and your great tip about eating in the neighborhoods and not anywhere near the large piazzas. That is so true, and it is something I always recommend to people.

Regarding the restaurants you mention, Il Milion and Osteria da Alberto are two restaurants I have been thinking about adding to the website for quite a while now but just haven't gotten around to it yet. Both are excellent. I haven't eaten at La Colonna, but I'll certainly visit next time I am in Venice.
