Squeeze yourself into this little piece of Venice Heaven and enjoy the delectable treats hidden inside. They say size doesn't matter and this place goes to prove that. The meringues are divine and huge and when accompanied by a cup of well prepared coffee they help to soothe the soul after all the miles of walking around Venice has taken... More

Our 32 year old daughter made a bee line as soon as she saw their meringue's. I think she bought 3 and loved each one of them.

Just had my morning caffè with a fagottini di riso here. I picked it because it looked interesting and I tend to adore anything sweet made of rice. It's now one of favorite pastries. Basically, a tiny baked rice pudding inside a pastry with powdered sugar on top. Deeeelish. Will be hitting this place up again. I also loved their... More

Passed this each day on the way to and from the hotel - mouth watering selection - bought several times - could stay here for a long time - try the meringues, all colours and shapes - great for snacks

It was while walking to my hotel that I chanced upon this patisserie. The colourful dispaly of goodies landed me inside and I was hooked . Tarts, palmiers, pastries...but it was the meringues that tempted me. So I landed with this huge orange meringue and a cup of espresso which I enjoyed sitting by the canal right outside. Don't miss... More

We hadn't heard about this place before, it was just on our way at dessert time and we decided to try it. Its tiramissu was simply the best dessert we had in Italy! It's not a budget place nor a too fancy one, we definitely recommend it.

We went in search of Pasticeria Rizzardini, which had been recommended to us, only to find it closed. We turned to our travel guide for a suggestion and it had this place. It was difficult to find but that's part of the fun in Venice. However, where this place is concerned, that's where the fun ends. The cakes on display... 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.
