The first night of our weekend in Venice we chose this restaurant, recommended by the manager of our apartment.
Via Garibaldi is the vibrant main street of the eastern part of the Castello "Sestiere" (neighborhood); there are many restaurants, but not all were full despite being Friday night.
This restaurant instead was full, vacant tables were only inside; which is always a good sign.
And indeed our experience has been satisfactory, especially considering that in Venice it's very easy to run into tourist traps.
There were four of us, and we ordered two starters (shared) and four main courses.
The "mixed seafood" starter was very appreciable. It included, inter alia, two narrow long shells, called in Italian "cannolicchi", a scallop shell, "mantecato" (creamed) cod. My main course - an appetizing and abundant mixed fried seafood - was also appreciable; as well as the stewed squid with white polenta, ordered by my wife. In short, our dinner was a joy for the palate.
The price of these dishes was fair by the average in Venice. The final bill (140 euros), however, rose because we were persuaded to order a high qualiy "Prosecco" wine bottle, 25 euros.
However this restaurant is very advisable from every point of view

Whenever in Venezia, do visit Hostaria All´Ombra! Location is great in Castello, free from tourist crowds, food is excellent, price-quality ratio splendid as is the staff! The staff including La Moldava is an 11 on a 10 grade scale! Friendly, efficient and really sympathetic! The antipastos are delicious, pasta dishes too and the Tiramisu the best I ever had.

Pizza was ok but very poor choice, polenta and cod appetizer was cold, service was very average - not the worst but definitely not good enough. Shame the quality of restaurants in Venice is generally poor.

The food and the service was horrible. If you are a tourist do not by any means eat there. Or if you don't know italian because they talk behind your back.

We have been in this restaurant with friends. We really enjoyed grilled fish. They gave us a good recommendation for wine.
