Tipical local osteria run by young minded guys. Turists can find a place where to chill out close to the locals or have a meeting or a romantic place for eating close to the channel and having a good glass of wine. Local cusine and good wines, tasty home made cakes, fish and sea food, cheeses and hams selection, nice mix salads and more! Buon appetito!!!

A great place to grab a drink and a sack at the end of a day seeing the sights.

A delightful little on room bar serving a range of wines and some excellent, freshly prepared snack. Cool music and a lovely guy running it.

The owner told us he was the fifth in six years, so this review is likely perishable. Very convenient to our hotel Laconda La Corte. Great choice of music, good wine and Spritz, but no kitchen, so not much more than prucitto and bread to eat.

Very small but nice place. Tried octopus, baccalao and antipasti. All very tasty with a nice red house wine suggested by the owner. Decently priced. Would visit again.

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.
