Old food, expensive, terrible music, dead really. Came here because it said cheap eats on trip advisor, it wasn’t cheap. And the food really didn’t taste fresh...

Extremely friendly service, genuinely Venetian atmosphere, fair prices and the best fiori di zucca in town! Just go and try!

One of the few cafes in the neighbourhood open on a Sunday morning, at least in January! Good coffee and cornetti. Live music on a Saturday evening, which we enjoyed, because of the mix of ages, and that’s just the musicians! Most people seemed to...More

Staying at a hotel just around the corner, we had to try this local osteria for lunch, as it claims to serve original Venetian cicchetti. And yes, at the desk there is a variety og ready-made cicchetti to choose among. We were four adults, and...More

I've been to this bar 3 times and every time the food and the service are excellent. Their homemade cannelloni are to die for. If you are in the area, please do give it a try.

This small bar/cafe is off the beaten track and should be glad of return custom. However we shall not be returning. Although the food was fine and service was good, we got quite a shock when presented with the bill. We felt we had been...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
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
