A small, local, almost "family" experience with a wonderful menu and friendly service! Very comfortable rooms and dishes that make you wish you could eat more. Could maybe fit a bit more in. Recommended with no hesitation!

Our daughter recommended this restaurant and she was right - it was excellent. Relativelt small and busy without being cramped, we were lucky to secure a booking on the evening we wanted. The meal was superb, the staff very responsive and knowledgeable and they richly rewarded our trust in asking them to choose the wines to go with our meal:... More

Arrived after Ten at night. Still open and offering dinner. We had a great meal with excellent wine and finished with Gin which was fantastic We came here last year and tonight didn't disappoint even with our high expectation. Great place with a wonderful wine selection and great service Will definitely go back.

Well, to be honest a business friend of mine advised me on this restaurant. He has an appartement in Venice so I thought this must be quite a tip, even though I wouldn't have gone there by myself (I'm kind of stupid, trying to find authenticity in Venice). Well, food was out of the freezer, not even warn enough for... More

After my BFF and I tried looking for a restaurant to have dinner, since most were fully booked or had long waits, a chef from one we tried getting in recommended we come here. It seems that the owner is a well-known Venetian that created his own brand of gin and has walls filled with pictures of him with celebrities.... More

Restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we loved it! We were a little concerned because our table was by the kitchen, but no need to worry! It was a fun place, and the food was delicious. We started with a meat and cheese platter. Had a bottle of chianti. Both were delicious. Our 1st courses included eggplant parmigiana and... More

This is a great place for a meal or drink. I had cuttlefish in a sepia sauce, which was tender, tasty and looked spectacular. Great selection of wines by the glass, with bottles left for you to help yourself then charged by what you drink. Atmosphere and service both great.

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
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 strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
