This place was a top pick on TripAdvisor a few years ago, so we were surprised that we could get a last minute Friday night reservation during Carnevale. That should have been a first clue, I suppose, but we went anyway. There's a reason they post a great menu with no prices on their website. The food was actually pretty... More

wonderful fantastic superb, just some of the many words to describe this little gem of a restaurant, its not that easy to find, tucked away in one of the many back streets of Venice and then they go and hide it in a court yard, but well worth the hunt to find it , we found this restaurant some years...

Welcoming staff at door, good understanding also in English. Menu is easy to read. seafood was well presentation come along, tasty fresh and light. Plus juicy pasta dishes both in veggie choice of mushroom and beautiful shellfish. Most recommending dessert of Strawberry Mouse, soft and creamy with the right amount of sweetness.

We just wanted to have a small lunch but something warm as the outside temperature was cold. We decided for a fish soup. Wow, that was fish with a bit of soup, large portion, well seasoned. Friendly service and local atmosphere. We would go back.

A little bit hard to find, it's in a hidden alley way off a main street. BUT! it is so worth the find. The scallop and zucchini pasta is THE best pasta I had in Italy - it was really fresh and tasty and contained heaps of scallops. I also loved the seafood platter for entree for the variety, it...

We popped in rather early and were welcomed warmly. We had cocktails and house wine with dinner which was quite good. The menu was varied and our meal was awesome....not to mention the complimentary lemoncello at the end! It's in a rather small side street, so you might have to look for it, but please do. It is very close... More

We were staying in Venice for two nights and went here for dinner both nights. The service was fantastic and bubbly if slow at times, and we were given a small glass of wine on the house at the start of our meal. The food was consistently wonderful, in particular the cheese potato dumplings and the strudel for dessert. We... More

This restaurant was very close to where we were staying, which is how we found it. For most though, you would probably have to go searching for it. We had a pasta each; one with clams, the other in a tuna, olive & capers tomato based sauce. Both were delicious. I also had a couple of spritzers which were very... More

Our first evening meal in Venice and we were delighted. We weren't too hungry and what the resturant recommended to us was perfect (a risotto followed by a fish dish, each for 2 people). I couldn't help but order a tiramisu to end off the meal!

Ae Sonte was located just around the corner from our hotel in Venice. We ate dinner and were recommended the special of the day: crab and lobster linguine. Although a little pricier that the meals we had been eating on our trip, this was without doubt one of the best meals we ate in the three and a half weeks... 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.
