My wife and I enjoyed our first dinner here immensely. So we came back for a second dinner, which was equally good - fresh seafood, pesce crudo, the works. Then the owner - Giorgio - encouraged us to join for New Year's Even fixed price dinner (100 Euros each) which required a 50 Euro deposit, that was refundable in case... More

Pleasant to sit and rest and watch the pedestrian traffic float by. Very rude server. Food was good, but completely overpriced for the very small caprese bufalo salad

Wanna dinner or coffee? Forget about this place. They just say: "we don't wanna see you and will not serve or sell you anything". Are you o'k with it? If not, they will name you dumb or deaf.

You know when you arrive somewhere on the first day and it's been a long day but you want to begin to get to grips with the place and finish with a good culturally ethnic dinner: good but not too expensive; local but not too basic. In Venice this must be as good a choice as any. The place is... More

Noticeably overcharged for our meal. Several items on the receipt were 1 and 2 euro more than price shown on the menu. Slimy. Average food. Avoid.

Went here on spec on a Monday night. It was too breezy to sit outside so we joined only a few other couples inside the quirky interior (beamed and with a curved bar to look like a boat). Sergeo (according to the embroidered name on his apron ), the patron, was welcoming and seemed to speak a number of languages.... More

Popped in on Friday and booked a set menu for Saturday evening for a party of 24. Thoroughly enjoyed each course and tried some things for the first time which was a whole new experience, service was friendly, wine and beer flowed and finished off with a gorgeous cake which they'd presented with candles for a birthday surprise. Even had... More

Tried this on our first night in Venice . Found it by accident while walking around near our hotel. What a find !! At first we were the only ones in the place, arriving around 7 pm. By 8 30, the place was packed with locals, some who knew each other, like an episode of Cheers . We ordered the... 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.
