When I wrote my report two years ago I said that, when next in Venice, I would visit this restaurant again. Two years on, there were eight of us, including two children and we were celebrating a big birthday of one of the aunts. When booking, I had asked if a birthday cake could be arranged; despite the relatively short... More

The fish is good, but the portions are far too small for the price. Sorry but this is fine only if you are on a diet or if you are a (rich) gnome.

Prompt and fast service, very tasty food. The place was highly recommended by our Pellegrino hotel concierge and it initially seemed suspect for being so highly popular within venetian hotel workers, as many reviewers here stated before me. But the food was perfect. Very tasty and perfectly cooked, not in big sizes. We went for the beans soup, carbonara and... More

Recommended by Luca and Marco from Hotel Bisanzio since it is frequented with local Venetian's. The staff was fantastic in providing recommendation for appetizers and the wine. By far the best food in Venice. The alia olio pasta was cooked El dente with a hint of spice. The flavours melted our pallet. Since it was a rainy evening we kept... More

How good is this restaurant? Good enough to have been every year for fifteen years! A delicious find between Campo Santa Maria Formosa and San Marco and well worth the exploration. Family owned, serving local dishes with style and consistency we have eaten here probably over fifty times - and still come back. Treat yourself

Our hotel concierge made reservations for us. We walked in to see a table reserved with our name on it, but an Italian couple behind us complained and was given the table. We were waiting, and then seated at at table meant for two (we are an American family of four, with young adult children). We asked to be seated... More

Was recommended this place by the hotel, hotel Scandinavia, for dining at the new year eve. Unfortunately was it fully booked, and it turned out to be for for good reasons. Managed to get a table the day after, as we was randomly passing by when they opened at 1900, we had a great meal and the staff was very... More

What a find. Beautifully presented Venetian food. The best food we have tasted for some time. Prices are amazingly reasonable for such a high standard of food and service. Wine list was excellent and again, for the quality, reasonably priced, try it. You could not be disappointed.

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
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 strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
