I ate in this restaurant in January. As this was my first time in venice; I ordered the obligatory, cuttlefish pasta, followed by Venitian liver and polenta. This was very tasty and, especially given the location, reasonably priced. The pizzas served here looked good too.

Went to this place following the reviews on here. We weren't disappointed. Great value. Not expensive so works well on a budget. We shared a Quatro Stagioni pizza and pasta Carbonara. Both were freshly made and what a taste and a litre of house sparkling...More

We had an excellent pizza-and-salad lunch here. The pizza was the best we'd had during our Northern Italy trip this year. The doe had a beautiful texture, and among the toppings, spicy salami really stood out. Salad was very fresh as well.

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
