Since 1875, the restaurant Trovatore is one of the most characteristic restaurants in Venice. Located near Piazza San Marco, in the central Calle delle Rasse (with access also from the parallel Calle degli Albanesi adjacent to the Bridge of Sighs) is appreciated among other things for its specialties seafood and Adriatic Venetian specialties, that can be enjoyed only in the lagoon. All in a friendly atmosphere, nice and cozy to make guests feel at ease as if they were in an ambience familiar to them.

Such a charming evening with a lovely friend at a marvellous restaurant. I can only so much, that I highly recommend everyone to come by Ristorante Il Trovatore. The food is amazing and waiters are even better. Arrivederci!
We went as part of a group after going to a matinee at the La Fenice. We had spaghetti with seafood, which was a little on the dry side, followed by a piece of fish fillet with fried potatoes. It reminded me of school dinners,...except that our school meals were more attractive. We were receiving two bottles of wine per table and had red wine dumped on us for a fish meal. We asked for white but were told that it was extra. The organiser bought some white wine to look after his group.More
Trovatore is at a great location, just up from the fashionable Danieli hotel near the Doge palace
Unfortunately this place is a mismanaged tourist trap favored by tour companies eager to save on cost, providing little of value to tourist groups.
Suggestion: Leave your group...and dine at a restaurant with a solid reputation.
(The meal was barely edible, the fish pasta had little fish, the fried fish dish was
uninspiring. The house wines were an embarrassment, The acceptable course was one scoop of basic chocolate ice cream on dry biscotti,)
Ovearall a sad group meal, more fit for prisoners who crossed the nearby bridge of sighs.More
Had dinner tonight cold bread not a waiter in sight had to ask for everything food was ok but Olive Garden can blow this place away so you know what your getting. I eat out at least four days a week on business is never...eat here againMore
This Italian restaurant was very nice. The servers all spoke excellent English and our server was quite attentive. Our service was very good throughout the meal.
My family ordered several different things. My son got a stew type dish, my husband got beef carpaccio, I...got a pasta dish, and we got a pesto tower of veggies to share. Everything we had was delicious. Our only complaint would be that for the size of the dishes compared to the cost, it wasn't such a great deal but it still tasted great.More

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.
