After my loving wife had me lost in the magic of Venezia, it was time for some vino and a feed. We walked past the Grand Canal and thought there wouldn't be much better then this view, but we'd noticed in Rome that often the dining out was best a little way down an alley just of the "tourist drag"....

I came here with five other travel partners without reservations. We were able to sit at a table right along the canal. We decided on this place because most of the restaurants along the grand canal are tourist traps offering bad food at high prices; Conchiglia is a great option if you would like to eat on the water. The... More

In a city where seafood restaurants are very common, and many are very good, this family owned gem truly does stand out as one among many. I have been coming here for years.The care in service taken by the family and staff is doting and the typical Venetian menu is artfully and skillfully presented. The wine list is moderate in...

We found this restaurant by chance whilst walking round the narrow streets of Venice, it is alongside one of the many canals and I suspect in the warmer months it would be lovely to sit outside by the side of the canal. However, the weather was a liitle to cool so we sat inside, the staff were really friendly and... More

We had taken an apartment in Castello and our first night there we were all ready to eat at a place with a pleasant setting that was convenient to our nice apartment on Campo Bragora. I had eaten here on a previous trip to Venice and the food was acceptable and atmosphere nice. We ate well and for not much... More

Found this restaurant during our exploring and the food and wine were both delicious. Eating outside next to the canal was fun and the local sparrows are very friendly. Highly recommended.

We ate here in order to enjoy dinner sitting along the canal, which provided a nice and unique environment. It is tucked away off of a small street several blocks from St Marks, so it takes some searching to find. We ordered the €17 fixed price menu, which provided more food than we needed. The dessert left something to be... More

Nicely situated alongside a canal we enjoyed a pleasant lunch with good service. Nothing special to tempt us back though.

I was attracted to the restaurant which offered canal-side tables with the occasional gondola drifting by. To be fair, the food was decent, reasonably priced and the service was attentive. However, all of that was quickly spoiled when I got my bill. For a start, although I was dining alone, the bill listed the 'coperto' ('cover charge') for two. When... More

Ordered from the tourist menu, which included first play, second plate and dessert. We all thought the food was good and sitting right on the water as we dined was wonderful. Food prices were consistent with other restaurants, but prices for beer was a bit high. Service was typically "Italian"....wait staff doesn't hover over you, but are there when you... 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.
