We came across this small canal-side restaurant during our exploration of the city and we were attracted to the house specialty of Turbot Venetian style so we booked for diner. We were not disappointed. Staff were friendly and helpful and on the advice of the waiter we shared one brucheta as a starter while waiting for the turbot to be... More

This is quite near the apartment we were renting and as such we passed it most days but did not consider going in, instead going further for our dinner. On our last day with time to spare we decided that we would go here. We has foil wrapped baked fish which was excellent. Give it a try!

Friendly atmosphere and service. Good quality Parma ham for starters followed by very nice pasta and gnocchi. good location away from the main touristy bits but still very close to the centre of things.

The food was great and the staff were more than helpful as well as having a good sense of humor, something you don't find often in Italy. The canal waterfront was a great view and entertaining as the gondolas passed.

We wandered some side streets and found this place on a side street. We were attracted by the menu and spoke with a very nice man who seemed to be the owner. The place was nearly empty at 8:00 which was a shame. A few more tables drifted in but far from a full house. Meals featured local specialties -... More

We loved this trattoria and went back again on our last night to be sure of enjoying our dinner experience. It's beautifully situated on a canalside opposite an old gothic style palazzo, now a hotel, and near a picturesque bridge. There's really good terrace tables outside if it's warm enough, and inside is tasteful and cosy: it's in several areas... More

Avoid like the plague. Worst experience in a long trip in a Italy. Cold passive aggressive servers. Food was so so but way too touristy in a town with better options. Sad excuse for Italian food and experience. The waiters were mean and aggressive and talking bad about everyone in Italian. Little do they know - some of us speak... 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.
