The restaurant can rather be called small so it is not the worst idea to make a reservation before. Food is mostly mediterranean, the menu features primarily fish dishes which can be recomended. Beside this there are also meat and fries to be found. Our waiter was very dedicated to give us a great experience, he even spoke to us... More

Food was wonderful, pasta perfectly al dente with adequate flavourful sauce. Enormous gamberoni! Wait staff extremely friendly to us obvious tourists. Wonderful experience.

I absolutely loved my meal at the Osteria da Pampo. I had the grilled calamari with vegetables. The dessert, tiramisu, was great and the portion was generous. The service was good. I suggest you call to book a table before going because most tables are reserved.

The tables all said reserved, but we asked for a table. We shared octopus sales to start. The Steve had Spaghetti Busara and I had the special of Tagliatelli with lamb ragout. Steve enjoyed a beer with his meal and I had the cabernet sauvignon. Service was good.

We were staying in the new marina next to St Elena in Venice and found this wonderful local restaurant. The food was amazing and we ended up eating there three times, quickly realised you either have to turn up early or book. I can recommend the steak, the fish of the day which sells out on a first come first... More

Ok, management has changed, big question where is it now. Difficult to say after so little time (less than a month), but definitely some things have changed - the wine list is now better. There is more than the house wine. - food is done by a new cook which obviously means different tastes; here things are a little more... More

A restaurant with a home vibe, the food is super great and I highly recommend the mixed seafood, fresh pasta and the tiramisu. You must come here at least once and trust you want to come back like us.

Osteria al Pampo is another local delight in the Sant’ Elena area. Arriving early we discovered, was the key to finding an outside table as this little friendly, family-run osteria is always busy. So it should be, the food is absolutely fresh and delicious. On recommendation from a regular, we sampled spaghetti with crab and clams. Delicious! It was so... More

We visited this restaurant as it was very close to our hotel on the island of St Elena in Venice. The reviews were mixed so we were unsure what we might get. We arrived without a booking and had to return an hour later and still had to wait a while, but we were relaxed about it. The menu was... More

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
