We met with some friends up in Venice and decided for what seemed to be a real gourmet place. We ordered champagne and wanted to have a relaxing dinner. The well trained waiter would give us the list of the different breads they served without much joy. To all questions to the dishes there were always long explanations that they... More

We have been visiting this reataurant for a number of years and continued to do so in the hope that it would recoved the excellence it had up to four years ago. I thought that last year it had reverted to its previous standard but my recent visit was a disappointment. The baccala was so fibrous that I had difficulty... More

We stayed at this Hotel 10 years ago for our 40th wedding anniversary and loved the Hotel and the staff. We also decided to dine in the Michelin Starred restaurant on the day of our anniversary and although expensive it was the most wonderful food experience ever, magical dishes which were all very artistically done but were a fusion of...

My partner and I came here for our last evening in Venice. From the minute we walked in it screamed class and superiority. We sat in the bar to begin and ordered a drink each. I had a bellini and my partner had an Americano cocktail. We were shown to our table when we were ready. The atmosphere in the... More

This is far from the cheapest restaurant we have ever been to....but it is one of the best! The quality, the service from the staff and the wines were all stunning! We went for the 8 course Tra-contemporary menu which showed just how different the methods of preparation and cooking the same ingredients could be. First course for example was... More

Great food and excellent service all round. The setting was quiet and welcoming but not overbearing or overly stuffy. Overall we had a fantastic evening.

A group of 7 of us had dinner at this restaurant when in Venice. They may have a star but it did not shine. We chose to order a la carte so that we could see diversity and variety of foods. The creative and colorful ravioli entree was beautiful yet the flavors were bland and the pasta was dry. The... More

My wife & I ate at the Met Restaurant while staying at the Metropole Hotel. We both opted for the 6 course traditional degustation menu along with a bottle of 2009 merlot recommended by our waiter. Each course was tasty and well presented without being exceptional however the service and setting were impeccable which made for a very enjoyable evening.

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.
