Good ambience and food

This restaurant is situated in a little corner away from the St Mark's square. It's very nicely decorated outside in the courtyard with a small garden and the inside of the restaurant is nice and cosy. The waiter was courteous and service was good.

Five of us followed Rick Steves' recommendation and went to Antica Sacrestia on our first night in Venice and discovered that Rick is right about this place. The food was amazing and the service was excellent as we were greeted by the owner just as Steves describes in his guidebook. This was the best meal that we had in Venice... More

We happened upon this restaurant as it had just opened one evening so we were the first customers in the courtyard area. Myself and my 2 girls aged 10 and 12 were served with an aperitif while we looked at the menus. As the girls did not see a pizza they wanted, the owner took their wishes into consideration and...

I almost feel bad for this restaurant. The restaurant itself is really nice and clearly has had money spent on it, but there's no excuse for poor service. As per other reviews, we were seated promptly and then forgotten about. The food when it finally arrived was good, but then after the main course...nothing. During that time one other couple...

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel concierge, so we were hopeful that it would not be a tourst trap, like many restaurants in Venice. We were very disappointed. We had the seafood antipasto - a melange of discordant pieces of food slapped on a plate with no culinary rhyme or reason, and questionable freshness. The restaurant pushes... More

We made a reservation for this restaurant through our hotel based on the good Trip Advisor reviews. After we reached the restaurant, we were promptly seated and given menus. After 20 minutes, no one came to our table to take our drink or food order. I got up from the table to speak to the person who appeared to be... More

Our experience in this restaurant was really excellent. The owner is a very good tradesman and all the staff is globally very pleasant. The food is also very good and diverse not to mention the atmosphere of the place.

This was one of the best meals we had in Venice. The setting is a nice mix of old school/rustic with modern edges. The menu is expansive with everything from the pasta/pizza realm to traditional Venetian seafood dishes.

We fell upon this restaurant in a small quiet street while walking in Venice and went in for a late dinner. Loved it so much that we returned the next evening, which happened to be our wedding anniversary. A hidden gem. Set in a beautiful 9th century building, it has a charm that, even for Venice, is exceptional. A definite... More

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
Castello
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.
