Nice place of the beaten path. They have very good coffee and teas, all biological products which are used. Tosti is very nice! Staff is maybe not overwhelming but a great place to go with many locals around.

Lovely little cafe that offers a selection of cakes, sandwiches and a vast selection of drinks. Stopped by for a quick bite and tried a coconut frappe type drink which was light and delicious. Worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Chanced upon this cafe set in a tranquil location within one of Venice's parks. Immediately felt relaxed away from the throng of tourists (like myself) and the cafe really is serene. It appears to be run as a co-operative business and has quite a decent...More

We came across this charming greenhouse cafe when visiting La Biennale and had a small lunch there. It's a quiet place, away from the hustle of the city centre, and it has a nice garden, something you do not see often in Venice. You can...More

We went for a coffee once, and for a wine another time. The atmosphere is great, the place is really beautiful. The service is only ok.

Spent a delightful few hours here with chocolate salami (fudge really) tea and coffee. Very lovely staff and fine to hang out and chat with new friends. The grass is nice, since we haven't seen any while in Venice. Terrific glass building, very restful here,...More

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
