Vecia Gina just happened to be the closest place to eat from our hotel. I am so glad it was. Full of locals eating superb pizzas. What a wonderful place.

Just in front on the vaporetto stop (S'Elena) a small but nice restaurant. They serve (manly) Pizza and Polentas. We had the Pizza and they were quite good. Reasonable priced Friendly staff, service was fast.

Away from the crowds, located at the edge of the peaceful park, but close enough to the vaporetto stop, the place is cosy, friendly, with attentive and pleasant staff and they offer good and tasty food. Reccomend it for all these mentioned, and as a...More

Lovely people, very helpful and the pizzas, if a little samey, were very good. We also had Olives a l'ascolana which I hadn't had for years. In summary, fair priced pizzeria, nothing fancy but well worth a visit especially if you are in the area...More

A regular stop for coffee or light lunch, for an evening drink, or a meal - the pizza and the baccala are legendary. And the fried olives as a starter - don't miss them! Staff are lovely, we love Vecia Gina's!

Always was closed at prime times. Suggest hours from 7am to 3pm. A good 8 hour day. To be fair, the area around it seems quite abandoned. ☹️More

Venice is hell - so many people taking selfies of themselves and eating World food jammed next to each other. Sant' Elena is a lovely superb on the water's edge, walk-able to the centre but half way by Vaparetto between St. Marc's and the Lido....More

Stopped here after walking from Rialto via San Marco. It is, by the way, a delightful walk. Near the end of the Arsenal Park, near the military school is a community with this sweet little cafe, Vecia Gina. It is spotlessly clean, well staffed with...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

Hi, we ate here at lunch time in April so I'm sorry to say I have no idea about summer time opening hours. We paid cash.
When is this pizzeria open for dinner? Your hours aren't clear on TripAdvisor. We would like to go this evening. Thank you.
