An unassuming quiet venue near the yacht bar obviously a super professional fish choosing and cooking resulting in consistently delicious food, the best "sarde in saor" I ever tried. A great experience. Repeated already quite a few times.

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

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
