I don't even know where to begin... let's just say I'll never visit a restaurant anymore without checking Tripadvisor first. What a horror evening I experienced in La Gondola. I had a carpaccio for a starter but it was frozen in the middle. When i...More

We had lunch in this restaurant attracted by the fair price and the claimed typical venice cooking. Unfortunately, the first and the second entries were awful and totally unsatisfactory. Please avoid it!!!!

Not impressed by the food. Overpriced and extra charges added for about 25 euros! Restaurant needs refurbished. Pasta carbonara was spaghetti with oily tasteless sauce.

Total rip off avoid at all costs, the staff don't tell you how much you will be paying and the restaurant is stuck in a 1970s time warp

Probably the worse restaurant I've ever eaten in. Total rip of for tourists. Miserable staff Reheated food to start that was cold inside. Macaroni had no cheese and no seasoning. Main course barely edible Only good thing was the company and the prosecco

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

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
