We ate at IL Nuovo Galeon twice during our 4 day stay in Venice, with all of the great restaurants in Venice, why twice you might ask? The food was spectacular, service is old school, which makes the experience even more fun and it has the look and feel of what many people envision a Venetian restaurant to be.

My family and I went in tonight. We were persuaded to patronise the restaurant by the waiter as we were passing. There was know one else sat down at the outside tables at the time. However, it soon quickly filled up with what appeared to be a mixture of Italians and tourists. From the start the waiter displayed a number... More

Just had a delightful meal here. The waiter was courteous and helpful. The food was very good especially the spider crab and pasta with anchovy. The service was prompt and an error in st artery was quickly rectified. I would certainly recommend.

My college age son and I had a fantastic meal here. It was so good, we came back the next night and had another fantastic meal, with the same entertaining waiter. I'm allergic to shellfish and the waiter decided my meal for me - excellent. The atmosphere was fun, with more local people at the restaurant than tourists. Someone had... More

Our concierge recommended the restaurant when our first-choice was full on a Sunday evening. It's on a main street in the quieter area of Castello, but was busy throughout our meal. There was a mix of both locals and tourists. Service was friendly (especially to our teenage boys) and in spite of our faltering Italian. The food was good with... More

We ate here on our first night in Venice as it was near our apartment, looked nice and was busy. I wish we hadn't. The food was poor. A portion of lasagne at 15 euros was minuscule and lacking taste . My stinco was dry as a bone. The service was poor. The waiter who served us just threw the... More

Food and service the worst we've experienced in over two weeks traveling Italy! I ordered the Penne Arribiata, it was 12 euro and arrived on a side plate with perhaps 3/4 cup of pasta with bland tomatoe sauce. My husband had the seafood pasta and when he asked the waiter for Parmesan(on my behalf) the waiter mocked him and refused... 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.
