It was our first night and we had arrived late, but went out searching for our first taste of Italy. This lovely place was one of the few open after 11 and it was pretty full. Delicious wine was served in giant glasses and we ordered a sharing platter of cheese and meats which was to die for. I would... More

Try great wines by glasses with reasonable prices (some of them are the same as directly at cantina). Ask owner Mauro, who is the great wine specialist, to recommend you something special or to simply open bottle of champaign or local frisante with sable (a little show from the owner). Open only for dinner (until 2am!).

Let's say that the wine was excellent and also the gin&tonic ....superb I would say....the bar attendant a nice gentleman with a great experience and know how preparing drinks (we have been fascinating about his ability) made the difference...the food was ok. Nice dinner...I would recommend it .... again food ok but atmosphere very nice.

Just around the corner from our Hotel. Walked in not expecting much, thinking this was a local neighbourhood eatery, however the food, service and wine list was amazing. The staff were overly helpful in assisting with dietary needs (partner is Celiac), was able to change the meal around so it was gluten free friendly. Was able to offer advice on... More

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

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.
