Stopped by coincidence... sunny seats in early spring. The lady of the place turns out amazing amounts of food from a cupboard size kitchen. Service is friendly and quick, Aperols great...all in all a great little find

A good 20 minute walk from St Marks in the opposite direction to Rialto, so there are very few tourists, and lots of locals. Hence you get a great atmosphere and good food at reasonable prices without being ripped off. Their wines were excellent and modestly priced. We loved it and returned several times. However note that this is primarily... More

This is the place to be. Great wine, great food, great staff and the BEST waterfront view in the neighborhood. This could very well be the best of Castello. You'll find yourself returning again and again.

We walked around Venice and discovered this place. It has a very nice view and there is always a nice breeze. The owner is great and very friendly. The other staff needs improvement however. We had dinner there the first day and then went back for lunch couple days later. Food is pretty good and the prices are very reasonable.

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.
