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.

Very good food in a quaint setting decorated with a boat (yes, an actual boat-shaped bar). Quirky, friendly staff make it an unforgettable experience.

A short wander from main tourist drag so a welcome reprieve. Friendly staff (who seem to speak every language!) made for a welcoming meal. Little bit of up-selling but delivered with Italian charm & humour. Food good, wine decent & nice ambiance. We'd recommend.

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

Google maps show it in two places: part way down Calle San Domenego (wrong) and - if you do a search for the restaurant by name - Via Giuseppe Garibaldi (correct).
