It was right after our visit to Bienalle that we decided to have dinner in this restaurant, as everything else was booked in this great neighborhood in Venice. The food was nice, somehow expensive, but you expect this in a touristic spot in Venice... The...More

We had a nice time in this authentic place. Not too cheap but honest and definitely not a turist trap

The place is small and there is little distance between the tables. Dining room in the back less noisy. Food is correct, but with little choices. Prices in the average for Venice, less than in more touristic areas.

Very good food in a quaint setting decorated with a boat (yes, an actual boat-shaped bar). Quirky, friendly staff make it an unforgettable experience.

A short wander from main tourist drag so a welcome reprieve. Friendly staff (who seem to speak every language!) made for a welcoming meal. Little bit of up-selling but delivered with Italian charm & humour. Food good, wine decent & nice ambiance. We'd recommend.

We were referred to this restaurant by some locals and we enjoyed it tremendously. Our waiter, Sergio, chose the menue for us (silver crab served in a tin can (more hygienic then the the shell they used to serve it in), a tris of polenta...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

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
