My partner and I came across this place by happenstance - it was one door down from the laundromat, and while we waited for our washing, we had a spritz or two! After seeing a spectacular looking meal arrive at a nearby table, we decided...More

When in Venice you must allow yourself to wander the narrow crazy streets and bridges away from St Marks. The adjacent San Zaccoria neighborhood is a good one. Lots of real venetian merchants driven out by the gucci, armani etc. Here you will find Osteria...More

Sludgy 22 euros fish, expensive wine and hidden service fees. There are much nicer places in Venice for much cheaper.

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

Unfortunately we got lost in the way finding you....we struggled for half an hour and my phone ran out of mobile data😂 I can't even cancel the reservation...Is there a problem with the location on TripAdvisor? It seems different from the one you supplied on your website. Hope to see you tomorrow.

From Campos s. Maria Formosa, Castillo, take the exit over the bridge next to Palazzo Malipiero. Into Riga Giuffa. The Osteria is on the right very near the end. Enjoy
