We walked past the restaurant and searched for it using trip adviser as it had a delightful outside eating area. When reading reviews we noticed some said the service was terrible, being left to wait endlessly. We went on the evening and have to admit after waiting for ten minutes on entry with staff just walking past ( not even... More

Went on trip advisor advice as it was near our hotel a wet night. Restaurant is charming, staff are friendly, my husband's pizza was great (my gnocchi were wonderfully light but the sauce was a bit boring). Complimentary spritz and a bag of cookies when we left and the bill was less than we expected - a real rarity in... More

Food good and staff helpful and charming. In a city full of tourist traps, we were very pleased to find this atmospheric restaurant, serving well-priced food in central Venice (Castello)

We didn't read the reviews as we chanced upon this lovely restaurant whilst losing ourselves in the lanes of Venice. The courtyard is a peaceful haven from the noise and frenetic activity of the piazza locally. We had a Spritz and a hot main dish each (the Fegato was excellent and my husband loved his lasagne). We sat outside and... More

I went here with my wife and 9 year old son on Easter Saturday evening. The meal was at an Italian pace, so don't pop in for fast food, but every dish was good. In particular the pasta course and the calamari were excellent. The wine list was good too. The restaurant is a bit more stylish than many of... More

The stuff did everything except take ours order: they cleaned the tables, seated another people, walked through and etc. each time we tried to receive any attention they looked at us, made... More

Although we enjoyed our time in venice, this made our visit less pleasant. At first sight it looked great, until we entered the building. First there was no music and all guest were very quiet. After a while they turned it on. We ordered a menu which looked good on paper. We got the first dish, which was lasagne. You... More

Food was very normal and even desserts were mediocre. Service was excellent/over the top in fact I would only come back here (which I'm not doing) because of the owner Mr. Pino attentions and personalized service.

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.
