Stumbled upon this restaurant while going to the laundromat and was very glad I chose to stop in for a meal. It serves solidly Italian and Venetian dishes. Good vibe, cosy and informal atmosphere, you could sense that the diners were all enjoying their meals....More

This was some of the best pizza we had while in Italy! The staff is great and the food is excellent. The shrimp/polenta and pizza recommendations were great. Definitely take the staff's advice and add the pepper-infused olive oil to your pizza. Highly recommended!

We recently visited this restaurant with a group of friends. We all live in Venice, so we know how difficult it is to find a reasonably- priced restaurant in the city that serves both fish and meat. We arrived hungry so we started by sharing...More

Not a five-star restaurant but a very exceptional trattoria. We stood outside looking at the posted "tourist" menu but since it was heavy on seafood, we weren't too sure. The proprietor came out and greeted us and when he found out that we spoke Italian,...More

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

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
neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
