A great restaurant.

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... read more

Best sit down meal we had in Venice. Great menu of choices for the kids and authentic Venetian options for adults. Beautiful old building on a quite side street.

The pasta we ordered tasted like canned food, the prawns probably were canned and the beef was totallly red. After sending it back, asking for medium done beef, we received it back after ten minutes just as cold and unfinished as the first time. The prices was horrible considering the quality. They did not try to make up for it... More

I came to this wonderful restaurant many years ago (it was in another location near where it is now) We were stuck in Europe because of 9/11 and the owners were so lovely to us and the food fantastic. It is delicious still and the new location is lovely inside. The pizza was as I remembered it....delicious. They have a... More

We stumbled upon the Antica on our first night and sat in the courtyard area. It is extremely popular and I suspect we were lucky to get a seat. The food and service was excellent and highly recommended

The desk clerk at our hotel in Venice recommended this restaurant to us when we said we wanted something other than the hundreds of tourist restaurants that abound in the area around St. Marks Square. He suggested this one which was about 4 or 5 blocks away, but with his directions wasn't too hard to find. (Finding way home afterwards... More

After getting into Venice late, my boyfriend and I used TripAdvisor to find this restaurant, and we were not disappointed. The staff was very nice about seating us so close to closing time (10pm). We were able to get a seat in the lovely little outdoor patio, and proceeded to have one of our most favorite meals of our whole... More

We stumbled across this restaurant one evening after we had already had dinner. Next day it took us some time to find it again and boy was it worth it. Excellent food, fantastic decor and great service. Highly recommend.

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

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.
