We stopped by here as part of our European Tour, This place is situated well off the beaten path in a back walkway. Service is good, our waiter spoke good English making ordering a little easier. I had a bowl of vegetable soup that seem to lack the pizzazz. along with a chicken entree that seem a little on the... More

Had a great meal here; it's casual and hidden, fresh seafood grilled; nice wine, and appears to appeal to locals, and I guess tourist like ourselves. We each had a glass of wine, spaghetti with lobster out of the shell in a red sauce that was spicy. Would definitely eat here again. It's not fancy, but doesn't need to be.

Three of us chanced upon this delightful restaurant in a quiet little square while wandering through Venice with no particular destination in mind. We decided to sit in the quaint piazza and have an aperitif and lunch. We ordered a mixed salad and mixed grilled vegetables to share. I had the sea bass, my granddaughter had salmon and our friend... More

This place struck us as very overrated. It's a bit formal and unfun inside, also under-heated, and the waiter did urge us to take the most expensive seafood grill for two even though that seemed like a lot of money and food for lunch time. Our kids had pizza and it was mediocre, as was my vongole. My husband had... More

We booked this place before we arrived in Venice for our first meal. The door was open (as it tends to be in a lot of places here) which made it quite chilli inside, people were sat eating in coats. The waiter will try to up-sell on everything, so be careful. The food was ok, a little overpriced and the... More

We ate dinner and this was the best of the 3 dinners we ate in Venice. Lobster and crab pasta was delish, service was very attentive and prices very reasonable.

Had a fabulous dinner at this quiet bistro in heart of Venice between St. Marks Square and Rialto Bridge. Since we were in Venice we wanted to sample seafood and our hotel recommended and we are happy they did. We had the Chef Special - grilled fish sampler - included cuttlefish, sole, salmon, scampi, seabass and a salad all for... More

They should be ashamed of themselves, arrogant service and absurd prices. No balance between price and quality. We just ate pizza here, the pizza was fine, making it the only reason I give this place 2 stars instead of none at all. Please don't spend any time bothering this place while you can eat better and more anywhere else.

We asked our hotel for a recommendation, the type of place they would visit as a local. This was recommended, and it was wonderful! They were friendly and attentive without being overly so. The food was fantastic - tagliatelle bolognse and gnicchetti with cream and walnuts. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. They were welcoming yet not overbearing. No tourist... More

Tucked away from the crowded streets of Venice this charming restaurant is well worth a visit if you fancy seafood. All very fresh, tasty with excellent customer service. Not pretentious at all so all in all a prefect evening. However, when told they did not have tap water only frizzante or minérale I started to sweat over my credit card...no... More

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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.
