Cute restaurant located at a little square. There are not that many tourists passing by so it feels a little nicer. The staff are very friendly and we recommend having the caprese salad with buffalo mozzarella. Perfect for lunch time.

We had dinner at Osteria Ae Sconte and food and service was excellent. It was a great romantic atmosphere being outside on their terrace. It was a little bit pricey but it is Venice !

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
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a

I would say on the high end of the dining spectrum for a European city. 30 euro entrees if that helps and well worth the money!
