We were in the piazza Santi Giovanni e Paolo several times recently and the landlords of the apt we were staying at took us for a drink to this establishment just south of the church (see also Venice Day by Day p. 80) -- our landlord mentioned that the owner of Santa Rosa was his old schoolmate.. everyone was sitting...

This café was recommended by a local. We had a cappuccino (not after mid morning of course), a double espresso and several tasty morsels. The staff were friendly and (if you need it) speak good English. I can happily recommend though it is a standing café from what I could see.

Stumbled upon this like everyone else and pleasantly surprised. They had the best puff pastries and tartes we had in Venezia and the cafelatte did not dissapoint either. Not far from San Marco Piazza

Located in a very nice place close to Sts Giovanni and Paolo Basilica and far from overcrowded place, this Gelateria offers a wide range of delicious ice cream and prices are correct. The service needs to be improved especially don't let customers wait too long before ordering. For this main reason I rate this Gelateria as average.

Too many yummy things to eat... Good service despite being very busy. A place that locals seem to love as well.

We found a great selection of chocolates and candies to bring home for gifts for people. The chocolate was very high quality, and everybody enjoyed and appreciated it.

Come here for coffee, pastries and croissant sandwiches in the morning and join the crowd of locals doing the same thing. To keep the cost down, eat at the counter with the rest of the locals. Cnetrally located but a little out of the way, a perfect way to start the day.

When we finally found this place, we were initially thrilled. The food looks amazing and it's not touristy. Sadly, things quickly turned sour due to the staff. My wife was mocked for daring to attempt Italian. The waitress laughed with another customer to her face (I just noticed a reviewer said something similar of their experience). I was treated like...

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
