Everything so so so perfect! For a restaurante keep great since 1876, i think its difficult, but these one just made us crazies. Perfect Risoto of Shrimp with Zuquine and the best Gnochi I ever ate. Full of shrimps! The waiter is so so so kind and he helped us a lot with the menu and was so so so... More

We took a tour package from our cruise ship which took us 3 different places but by then we were really hungry and started walking down the small narrow streets. We came upon this restaurant and it looked beautiful so we decided to try it. Oh my gosh, it was the best decision we made during our 21 day cruise.... More

The menu looked great & it was possible to eat a la carte on NYE, that's why we choose this restaurant. Bad decision!!! The wait was very long, then the waiter delivered the food to the table next to us. The food was sitting there for a while, the guests of this table were outside smoking. When we told the... More

My husband and I got pulled here with the menu of the day. Consists of a 1st, 2nd and salad for 19€. The guy that ushered us in was very polite and professional. However, Our server was quite put out when we asked for the 'menu of the day'. Then we ask him for a carafe of house red and... More

I wish I read the reviews on trip advisor before we made the mistake of going in. For the price paid, I felt ripped off. I had to send the bill back 2 times because of errors made by the waiter. I normally do not write reviews for restaurants but felt compelled to warn anyone considering this place to not... More

We came her for a fast meal"1.5 hr would be a fast meal for new years-eve". We ordered seafood selection of the day and beef Filet with mixed salad. We actually like the seafood selection. Filet is average. The price is little high, but the waiting time is really way too much for 2 dishes with no wine or dessert.... More

Personal was very rude. Long cooking. Prices are big for this kind of food. Check your check because price can b wrong, not in your favor.

Food was excellent but a cover charge per person was applied and also a service charge which bought the cost of the meal up. There was a staff member at the door ushering passerbys in so don't stop to look at the menu in the window as you feel compelled to go in and eat. Having said that the staff... More

What a delightful experience and wonderful meal we had! We were wandering the streets of Venice, looking for a place to eat. We really wanted some fresh seafood. The owner was outside (as all of them are trying to attract customers). We stopped to talk to him and told him what we were wanting in a meal. He promptly showed... More

We didn't read the reviews before we came here, but we were pleasantly surprised. The service was exceptional and the food was amazing! We started with oysters (careful they are pricey) and they were fresh and delicious. We ordered the scallops with spaghetti and the lobster with a side of grilled veggies. They were all so good! I would definitely... More

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.
