Excellent food at reasonable price!! Many waiters in small restaurant--they all seem to have a great sense of humour--great with children. Highly recomended for casual meal.

This place is consistently very good, great food and ambiance.... but they really need to drop the service charge... as do all places in Venice that do this - it is unique and troublesome. It must end....! Do as the rest of Italy..... Please!

We were on the way to another place, when we saw this hidden jewel. The service and food were 5*. Very friendly staff. We took mostly appetizers - 5 of them and they were delicious. Home wine was good as well. We paid 83€ for two but it was worth it every penny!

Small restaurant that seems to be family owned and run. Very busy with locals and tourists. Fast service and the food was good. I had sea bass and potatoes and wine. Would recommend!

Fantastic meal, atmosphere and waiters. Had to wait for a table but given a glass of wine while we waited and well worth the time queuing.

Just off Piazza San Marco. Totally unpretentious and local. Firsrt time we ate there, 6 gondolieri were having their lunch there -- can't be much more local than that. Good service and English speaking. Very reasonable prices.

We have been eating in this trattoria for many years and it is still as good as it always was after a seven year break. Helpful and efficient staff work very hard in a small environment. As many of your reviewers point out - it must be good as the gondoliers all meet their for their lunch! You are made... More

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
Castello
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.
