This restaurant has the worst food I ever had. The fish/seafood must have been collected from a pond in a garbagedump. If the chef had spit in my food it would have tasted better than this.

We had just arrived in Venice and this restaurant was nearby, so it was an easy choice. The pasta and soup were good; nothing special, but not awful. The prices were high but we expected it in Venice.

Place is well located beside a large central place. Service is so-so with waiter probably having seen too many tourist that day. Food was OK and made with fresh ingredients. Prices were ont he high side but to be expected in Venice.

The two waiters couldn’t have been ruder if they tried! They added a service charge for bread that we didn’t ask for and when I complained the waiter just struggled his shoulders! Avoid this restaurant it’s a ripoff

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

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

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
