We were referred to this restaurant by some locals and we enjoyed it tremendously. Our waiter, Sergio, chose the menue for us (silver crab served in a tin can (more hygienic then the the shell they used to serve it in), a tris of polenta...More

We stumbled across Il Nuovo Galeon when looking for a place to eat with my parents. There were no tables outside so we decided to eat inside, and we were so glad we did. The decor is lovely, the staff professional and courteous. And as...More

This was the worst place ever that we have ever eaten, regarding service and attitude. We travel extensively, third time to Italy, and have never received such aggresive service and bad attitude from owner and waiters. Their cover charge is more, €3 per person PLUS...More

Monday nights many of our favorites in Venice are closed. This place looked good, locals, and crowded. Our waiter was fabulous quickly putting together specials for our large group. While the gnochi and fish were fresh, both had a rather heavy sauce. Unlike italian food,...More

We found the restaurant as we were walking around, exploring areas of Venice we hadn't visited before. There was a wonderful breeze so we decided to stop. Much to our surprise, the food was excellent and although we were the only Americans we were treated...More

Just confirm the views of all the one star reviewers who had a bad experience here: there is a general contempt for the non-Italian customer. We were given the worst table in the house - though it was fairly empty (and we were tired). An...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
