This was my worst meal in Venice. Very poor quality food, and poor service to match. Extremely overpriced -- avoid!

True, the 12 Euro cover charge mentioned in another post is still in effect. After that try ordering prosciutto and melon. You get 4 slivers of melon with about 8 wisps of prosciutto. Also 12 Euro (or was it 14?) Order a tuna salad and you get (if you're lucky) an ounce of tuna. Also true, if you call them... More

This meal will be remembered for its awfulness, in every respect. The service was unacceptable, the food was truly terrible. Previous reviews mention an intentional arrogance that was evident and obvious., this is true. It was over priced, hidden bread charges (12 euros!) for 3 people. The scampi was rubbery as was the veal. This was such a bad meal........ More

DO NOT GO HERE! Awful experience, tried out this restaurant as recommended from our AirBnb owner. Extremely RUDE waiter with white hair and red glasses, ruined a lovely evening out celebrating my sisters 40th. You only have a few evenings in Venice so don't waste it here! Rude waiter snapped at us, and other customers constantly. He ignored us, was... More

We ate good pasta here - visited based on recommendation from Airbnb host. Although the food was good, the welcome wasn't - as our 7 year old described it "the waiters all just seem like they're really bored and don't want anyone to eat here." After we ate we were told that the credit card machine was broken. Whilst I... More

Il Nuovo Galleon is a small restaurant on the Via Garibaldi in Castello. It is patronised by locals and has a pleasant ambience. There is something amiss with the service, however, and while, at first, we have had not unpleasant meals there, later we also had truly terrible experiences due to the rudeness of a particular waiter who might be...

A small restaurant with lots of character, good food and a great wine list. Very nice staff, all in all a good experience.

The restaurant was recommended to us at the hotel we stayed in and it proved to be a good meal - well presented and tasty. The restaurant is quite small and intimate, the service was good and we enjoyed it.

Short version: Overpriced, unexceptional food and TERRIBLE Service from the most deliberately contemptuous, unfriendly, and offensively rude Waiter I have ever encountered. I would never dream of visiting this awful place again. Don’t risk a second of your holiday/vacation here.

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.
