Da Carletto was near our apartment, so we decided to stop for dinner one night. The seafood was fresh and delicious. The pasta? Perfectly prepared. We tried pasta with clams, pasta with seafood and pasta with truffle cream. All wonderful. We also tried the sole - light and fresh.

So we found this cute lil restaurant on tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. I am glad we did. It was one of our best meals in Venice. Staff was very patient with us and helped us pick a wine to our liking. Ordered two great seafood meals with desserts. My pasta with lobster was very tasty. Followed... More

This is a lovely small, casual restaurant between Castello and San Marco. My family had dinner there and enjoyed wonderful, simple, well-prepared food and excellent service. Reservations are recommended.

Recommended by our hotel. Tricky to find down twisty lanes but worth the effort. Delicious antipasto, spaghetti with clams (just enough salty tang), cheese platter with melon, tiramasu ( for the husband!) Also had an interesting bottle of wine.

I found this restaurant after checking tripadvisor for local places that were not too expensive that weren't too upmarket with their cuisine. Be warned, this restaurant seemed to have changed it's name within the last year from La Carlotta which also had good reviews, but it confused us as this was the name we were looking for originally!! Anyway, the... More

Not much to write home about. Nice service from the waiter and a very decent bottle of Soave. Apart from that it was just OK. Bill was 119 euros for 2 courses each, wine and water. Watch out for the tax charge which is actually service. So don't pay twice. Will be having a word with our concierge. I asked... More

This is an excellent restaurant with an attentive and friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. Good choice of dishes, with excellent pasta, good steak and very good fish (try the flounder/turbot for two). Prices are good for a city centre restaurant in Venice.

Really good restaurant. It's pretty small but has a nice atmosphere and a traditional feel to the place. The staff were very friendly and the food was good at a reasonable price.

First night and recommended by our hotel. Rustic, traditional Italian with very friendly and helpful staff. Food was very good, albeit a simple menu. Desserts enormous, all home made, so had to share one. Very good all round.

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.
