Seafood risotto was excellent. Tiramisu was delicious. Feels very much like a family run place with such a warm feel - one waiter was dancing around and another was as sullen as my grandad. Reasonable prices and great food.

Fantastic food, great friendly atmosphere. Feels like we stumbled upon a local hidden gem. We haven’t had so much fun going out for dinner in a long time. I would highly recommend this tiny restaurant to all.

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

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a

Yes it does, but beware that when we were there a table that had a reservation could not get their table at the requested time as the restaurant was full. It's very busy.
