We had the calamari and the pizza- both were delicious!! The location was great for people watching and boat watching. The staff was super friendly and very attentive. I would recommend checking them out.

Lovely setting right on the front, lovely views. Had a nice set menu for 19 euros that I thought very good, seafood spaghetti followed by grilled chicken and was really tasty, my Husband had a pizza that was nice but a bit black on the bottom for 12 euros. However when 4 small cokes come to more than the food... More

They were going to seat us in back by kitchen work area, we said we'd wait for patio table he told us we were asking too much, he was extremely rude. Traveling with 2 teenage boys who were starving otherwise we would have left right then. Food was OK at best, also cruise ship went by so view was obstructed... More

We opted for thisd restaurant, mainly because of the location, the food was very good, Spaghetti Vongole, Langoustine truly was excellent, very busy, but the waiter was very attentive, bit pricey, but no more than youy would pay in any city center

Food is mediocre at best. Ordered bruschetta and it was some tomato on toasted bread. Pretty tasteless and I noticed a lot of people walking away from their food. Way too pricy for what you got. Staff was rude and wouldn't let me sit where I preferred.

Average food and service. Expensive drinks. A simple lunch for 3 persons average > €80... But this is Venice..... so what do you expect. Location is fantastic though, but that's what you pay for. Find somewhere else is my best suggestion. We will not be back.

Can't beat the view from the restaurant patio. The food and drinks are pretty pricey. (Not even homemade bellinis…and they sold the same little bottle next door for $2.00 vs. the $10.00 at the restaurant.)

After reading some of the reviews on this restaurant, we almost didn't eat here. BOY WERE THE BAD REVIEWS WRONG. The staff provides friendly, considerate service and make you feel welcome with a smile like you were at your favorite restaurant at home. The breakfast buffet has everything you might want . Lunch whether you want a salad, pizza or... More

My family and I walked into this restaurant expecting to have good food. The food was good, but the bill was ridiculous. A pizza costs €10 each, but a soda costs €12. It is ridiculous that a soda would cost more than the meal iteself!In addition you have to pay for service and a cover charge. I don't understand why... More

Pizza and Fettuccine Alfredo tasted like store bought. Just keep walking deeper into the city for something more authentic and local. Caprese salad and view was good though.

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
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.
