Beautiful restaurant and decent food

Went here for dinner with our kids. The restaurant itself is a gem and we were fortunate enough to be able to sit in the gorgeous courtyard. Our kids had pizza, which was excellent. The fried fish platter was also very good, but the mixed grill fish plate was a bit disappointing. All in all we had... read more

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

We spotted this place whilst doing our first bit of adventuring in Venice- we thought it looked so lovely that we walked all the way back to find it in the evening. Restaurant & court yard are just beautiful. Menu was basic in terms of explaining what the meal was & what it would come with. All 4 of us... More

Visited for lunch, and after 5 days in Venice - this is the best food we have come across. They have a high chair for babies, and the interior decor of this place is beautiful (an old church building). Seafood antipasti is an absolute must try

Sadly, we had a very poor experience here. We entered, and had to wait for someone to approach us to be seated. The person we finally spoke to was clearly very low on the strict waitstaff hierarchy, as he said he would go and find someone to seat us, but then he disappeared and never returned. Whilst we were awkwardly... More

Service and food very high standard. We had a mixed seafood messe plate to start and sole for main. Filleted at table, cooked beautifully and very fresh. Many free extras delivered and excellent advice on food and wine. Highly recommend.

As charming as it looks from outside, the more disappointed you get by the food they serve at Ristorante Antica Sacrestia. The risotto was undercooked, the sole had a scent of sewer and the polenta was dry as wallpaper. The free aperitif and cookies we received didn't compensate for the 45 minutes it took before someone took our order. You... More

Not cheap, but definitely a great find. On a balmy evening, we opted to dine al fresco, although the interior of the restaurant looked sensational. We just dropped in for a pizza with wine and were treated to an excellent Diavolo (euro 13.50) and a Bianco with lashings of prosciutto (euro 16.50). The house red wine was good at euro... 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.
