We didn’t have any food as we only stopped off for a drink to soak up the lovely views over to San Giorgio Maggiore across the Grand Canal. Don’t know what the food was like, but wine & beer were expensive.

Few place in Venice are worst then this one! The staff is VERY impolite, the price is high, the place and food is mediocre. Believe me, I'm Italian, you can find better place in Venice.

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

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
