I loved the spot! Very connected so it's easy to get there and is full of local people, so if you're looking for a typical Venice bar, I recommend it! Tried the panini and the beer, both excellent.

Cheap eats, open late. Sandwiches I got weren't the best. Kind service. Spend cash if you come here, not card.

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
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
