Had lunch here. Shared a margarita pizza and chips. Plenty for one. Good pizza and prices ok. 8€ for a margarita pizza. Lovely location, away from the crowds.

Stopped in while visiting the Arsenale. Service was prompt and friendly. The lasagna was very good. The salads were especially good. Prices were on the high side, but this is a very touristy area.

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
