The food here was very simple, nothing fancy- but we enjoyed it. We both had pizzas and shared a caprese salad. Great spot for people watching if sitting outside and the waiters were both wonderful- friendly and available when needed. Reasonably priced.

I had grilled vegetables, whcih were among the most tasteless i ever had, did not know this was possible. The bruschetta was mediocre, to put it mildly. Waitress was mostly invisible. Try any other restuarant around here but not this one.

Average food - we had a pizza and salad. Service was quick. Owner sitting at the bar area watching a movie for everybody to hear on her iphone while getting really familiar with her nose!

A pizzeria with terrible pizza! Maybe we have just been lucky but the pizza in Italy has exceeded my expectations. But this restaurant did anything but. Service was terrible, & as another reviewer mentioned they charge 12% service tax! Our wine was room temp and...More

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
