A modern layout a large menu, good food, excellent portions. No cover charge when we went. Excellent for groups. Friendly staff and speak English. Not especially characteristic of Venice so has a modern feel.

Best food I've had in Venice. The Italian cuisine is astounding! Try the risotto pescatori or the 6 euro pizza. The tortellini with cream and ham was really good as well. All in all this restaurant popped and I would come here every single time I come to florence.

Visited here because it was in the neighborhood and had a good menu. The service was good, prices reasonable, but the food was just okay. We ordered pizzas and the crust was a bit doughy and under cooked. The pomme frittes were similar in being undercooked as well. Beer was pricey (10€) and wine by the glass was small. I... 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.
