Under the traditional surface this restaurant turns out to be one of those rare Venetian restaurants that really serve real Venetian food - and well prepared! The seafood and fish is great - all the way from antipasti via pasta to main courses and desserts....More

It is almost impossible to find an escape from the crowds of tourists in Venice, but this restaurant is one of very few spots where you will find more locals than tourists. Food was tasty and service was great. Fish was delicious, wine selection is...More

The restaurant has a very ignorant staff, do not like to receive foreign tourists, only Italians, become dicussing racist tourists, food does not have a differential, not worth wasting time going in that place they call restaurant. The service is simply terrible!

I can see the other reviews are a little like 'Marmite' over this restaurant. The prices are not cheap and they will not serve a 1/2 carafe of wine like some. The food is not fancy haute cuisine but more trad and tasty. We found...More

We had a nice time in this authentic place. Not too cheap but honest and definitely not a turist trap

The place is small and there is little distance between the tables. Dining room in the back less noisy. Food is correct, but with little choices. Prices in the average for Venice, less than in more touristic areas.

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
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
