A recommendation by friends. The welcome on our arrival was OK verging on the off hand. Food was average, and expensive for average. Full of tourists and no locals. Never a good sign

We enjoyed this Venetian food with a well judged modern twist. We all ate seafood which was fresh and composed into delightful plates of deceptively generous portions. The tiramisu was a highlight to finish.

The place is a typical Venetian restaurant but nothing special. The food selection was bit too limited. The service was simply unacceptable. Few waiters were careless and arrogant. In few occasions they mixed up our order forcing us to wait over 20 minutes for the...More

Very delicious delectable and well presented dinner. Delicious black squid ink pasta. Duck was slightly overdone. Very nice outdoor seating in a quiet beautiful plaza.

We booked and were looking forward to the visit. I tried calling the night before and got no response. When we turned up they had sold our table and were just rude about it. Being polite costs nothing. We were offered a table inside eventually...More

This is a great restaurant in a quaint little plaza not far from Rialto- we stayed at the Peirrot Apartment just across the plaza- so we noticed this place being crowded every night and many tables with reservations noted on table tops - we found...More

After a rocky start..I had not confirmed the reservation 24 hours before as requested on the confirmation email - my fault! The staff accommodated us without any problems at all. This was a feast for the senses. Wonderful food & fabulous recommendation on the wine....More

We sat al fresco at this most appealing Osteria where the food/wine was of excellent quality. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable and the evening with friends was deemed to be a great success

Went to this small cosy place with my girlfriend. Amazing food, lovely waiters, after 3 days our experience Santa Marina is probably the best dining in Venice after our experience. It's not cheap, but we paid the same for other dinners and they don't compare...More

We enjoyed our meal here, especially the fish main dishes of fresh Tuna and sea bass. It is in a pretty courtyard. My only complaint is that the desert of Nuevo tiramisu had very little marscapone and I didn't enjoy the dessert and didn't eat...More

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

I am very keen to eat here as it looks great. However, I can only get a table at 9.30 and it looks like the place closes (or is it last orders?) at 10pm. Is it worth doing or will I be hurried and it may be better to go on another day?

I think that would be fine... It's more about attitude. This is an upscale place but still friendly. In general, Italians appreciate an effort on courtesy. The server/ servered relationship is a two way street. Act like a... More
