Our dinner was made so special at the restaurant when my mom told the owner it was my birthday. The owner gave me a book with a very sweet note and made my day even more special. Great visit!

Our meal at Antica Sacrestia was one of only a few genuinely authentic Venetian experiences. The menu was extensive, delicious and yet still humble. The staff were impeccably attentive, though with limited English which only added authenticity to our experience. The surroundings were rustically sophisticated....More

We visited on our first night in Venice based on Rick Steeves’ listing and were very disappointed. The decor felt like an American theme restaurant and the food was on par. We had 3 kinds of pasta and only one was good (clams and linguine)....More

If you are searching for the mere opposite of the pushy standard tourism restaurant this is your place. Warm welcome. Espacially diverse Pizza Specials and classy atmosphere. Be sure to be early or reserve in advance, though!

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri
