We had our Christmas Eve dinner there, and it was a wonderful dining experience. We love all the seafood dishes, especially cuttlefish! Oh and tiramisu is also amazing! It’s a warm a cosy place with great service.

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated

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
