What a nice garden!

We arrive there at late lunch time. The stuff very polite and helpful. The buffet was extravagantly exotic(oysters, fruits) and tasty. The service was professional, the music background and the cutlery well chosen. Visit this place, on sunny days, you will be rewarded by its garden. The area, is... read more

The service was professional, the music background and the cutlery well chosen. Visit this place, on sunny days, you will be rewarded by its garden. The area, is one of the most romantic in Venice.

After finishing our Venice tour we enjoyed a lovely lunch ourside overlooking the patio. This was recommended by our tour guide a local who escorted us - about a 10 minute walk from St Marks square. The owner is a former Navy man and was very happy to welcome our small goup, but I think the intro by our guide... More

New location (from first time in 2002) and it's really nice inside. The food is still OUTSTANDING. Great and kind owner. Wish we could have eaten there two nights. All our dishes were excellent

My husband and i dined here on a winter Tuesday evening. We read about it on tripadvisor, otherwise I doubt we would have stumbled upon it. Very close to the bridge of sighs but it feels like it is off the beaten path. It is down a narrow alleyway but as you enter the property it opens out into a... More

I have been to Venice now 3 times over the last 7 years, and on all three trips, dined at Antica Sancrestia. My sister and I love this restaurant for the simple fact that it has great food with wonderful service. The owner is charming and delightful and has even remembered us on subsequent visits. They have excellent calamari, pizza,... More

During our stay in Venice we visited quite a few restaurants. And this one was probably the best. Service was perfect. We were personally greeted by the owner, and received a cocktail "on the house" as soon as we were seated. Nice way to start your dinner for sure. We ordered mix of seafood for starter. It was huge, tasty,... More

This is a lovely restaurant with yummy food and cozy atmosphere. But it is not cheap compared the ones in Venice, generally good and recommended!

A meal is not just about food, especially in Venice. It must also allow one to experience something of the unique history of a place that has few, if any, rivals - the beauty of its buildings, the range of its cultural events mixed with the ever present problem of the need to allow ordinary people to continue to live...

If you walk by and it doesn't seem busy don't let that fool you. I recommend stepping inside. The friendly staff and owner will assure a great meal and experience.

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.
