My husband and I ate at this restaurant on our first visit to Italy a week ago and wished that we could eat there at least once a week. It is a romantic Old World restaurant next to a small canal. They offer an extensive menu. We trusted the owner, Pino, a courtly gentleman who spoke impeccable English, to choose... More

We 3 each ate from each of the set menus, meat, fish and Venetian and were all equally impressed. The restaurant is in a very atmospheric old building, as the name suggests and has a lovely courtyard (if you're early). They speak any language you want but are happy to indulge your Italian and the style and service was impeccable... More

Our hotel recommended this place as we had ages 5 to 50 in our party. Menu was well varied and the atmosphere was cozy and welcoming. Service is not slow, it is paced for a fine dining experience. Time is given between courses and bottles of wine. Food is excellent as we had everything from pizza to pasta to seafood... More

I went here with my girlfriend back in November 2014 and it was absolutely amazing. So good, in fact, that we went back the next night! As young adults on a budget we got a bottle of the house wine.. it is AMAZING. We also had the carbonara pizza which was unlike anything we've ever had, except for pasta carbonara... More

We found this wonderful place on TripAdvisor. It has a cozy yet elegant atmosphere. We were seated by the owner. The food was easy to order because the menu was in English. The menu was in several other languages. We had pizza, fish soup, and sea bass. Every dish was rich in flavor and very savory. I almost picked up... More

My wife and I are mathematicians who visit Italy every summer for collaborative research with Italian mathematicians. We always stop for a few days for our "annual honeymoon" in Venice, our favorite city. And in Venice, we always visit our favorite restaurant, Antica Sacrestia. We have been doing this for more than twenty consecutive years. Antica Sacrestia and its owner,... More

Excellent, reasonably priced restaurant in Venice, about a 10 minute walk from St Marco Square. On a back street, almost an alley, easy to miss. The owner is very welcoming; he prepared a wonderful antipasto platter for us, gave us a few suggestions, but there is no pressure, no push. Great experience.

When the owner came to take our order I told him I wanted pasta and seafood with no dairy. WOW! I got light and delicious homemade tagliatelle with large and small scampi and a white wine tomato sauce which I never saw on the menu. We also had fried calamari and a pizza corbonara which were also spectacular. A little... 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.
