Very nice setting for evening meal

Had a very nice meal here one evening with the wife, sat beside the canal by candlelight with the occasional gondola cruising quietly by. Service was excellent, the waiter informed me the wine I selected was a poor pairing for the fish dish I ordered and suggested a comparably priced local bottle... read more

We went here because we had read in Rick Steve's book that there were canal-side tables and good pizza, and we wanted a light, moderately-prided dinner. Our first disappointment was that pizza is served only at lunch. Thanks, Rick Steves, for providing incomplete information. Our second disappointment was that we had two smokers at the table beside us. However, neither... More

Right by a canal with outdoor seating and views of the gondolas going by... And fortunately, the food was even better than the view!! Try the vegetarian risotto (changes often, ours was asparagus), it was outstanding!

On our stay in Venice we were looking for some charming restaurant away from all Lagoon-faced tourist traps. Based on online feedbacks we chose this place. It's beautifully located at some smaller Canale, aways from the big crowds. There's a bunch of tables right at the Canale and lots of seats inside. But of course we wanted to enjoy the... More

Went here last night (4/28/11), based on recommendation in Rick Steves' Italy guidebook. Had the advertised fixed-price dinner. Where do I start? Paper napkins (everyone else in view had cloth). Stale bread. No butter. Wife had lasagne w/ meat sauce, breaded chicken cutlet and green salad. Lasagne "sauce" looked and tasted as if made w/ Campbell's Tomato Soup...no "meat" to... More

Start by saying that I am sorry that the dinner you will not be liked, and that we continue to make the mistake of comparing the Italian cuisine with that of other countries. As for the food I can say that: 1st - the butter is not usually served at the table in Italy, but if required immediately available. 2nd... More

We tried this restaurant on Easter Sunday based on TripAdvisor reviews and location (close to our hotel, but in the opposite direction from St. Mark's Square). Canalside tables were full so we ate inside; what it lacked in atmosphere it more than made up for in food and service. We had none of the negative experiences described here by a... More

Situated just a few minutes walk from Piazza San Marco. Excellent, quite and secluded location on one of the Venice canals. Great fish restaurant and good value for money.

We had only one night in Venice and had this place recommended to us by the front desk of our hotel a couple blocks away. We were not disappointed. We were fortunate to get one of the last tables out by the canal, which made for a great experience. Both dishes were delicious, and the bottle of wine recommended by... 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.
