We stopped here to for drinks and a quick lunch before leaving Venice. It's only a couple of minutes away from the waterfront in the back streets and therefore cheaper to eat and drink than some of the waterfront eateries. Our food was good and the staff very friendly. We were able to watch the end of the British GP... More

A small restaurant in a very good location, close to San Giovanni in Bragora. There were three of us and we shared two seafood antipasti, which were extremely good and would almost have been sufficient in themselves. We then had fish of the day, with a great side-dish of grilled vegetables, all excellent. Highly recommended.

We booked using TripAdvisor and, as such, you'd expect them to be on their game. Service was appalling, food was average, drinks orders and salad orders were messed up, and they made a hash of the bill. Avoid like the plague.

We asked for tap water and white wine when we first arrived, and we were given bottled instead, and red wine. After clarifying that we had asked for white, they told us the white was gone. Next, we were given bottled water and not tap, so we clarified again, and we were told it was not possible to give us... More

Maybe if I had been there another night I'd have given Fantasia 5 stars. My only problem was really one other customer. There are a few tables outside which is very nice - until this guy comes outside to smoke just one table upwind from me. And he's having a loud conversation with a friend. So I move. 10 minutes...

We were delighted to come upon this spot 2 mins from the riverfront. Had a great dinner, staff were very friendly and all at a fair price. This followed a meal earlier in the day on the riverfront where we were seriously ripped off venice style. Ristorante Fantasia restored a positive impression of eating out in this beautiful city.

We booked through trip advisor. When we arrived it was more of a bar and they sat underneath the biggest football screen I've ever seen. We left without eating.

Happened upon this local restaurant for lunch, following a wet, cold morning walking around Venice. It was a busy lunch service and we loved the local un fussy feel about the restaurant. Particularly enjoyed the local beer served in a glass boot!!!. On recommendation the salt cod was a great start followed by spaghetti with clams... The bread mopped up... 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.
