Wandering a non touristy area of Venice today, we stumbled across this lovely little place. We didn’t have food, only a few glasses of their red house wine which was really lovely and very reasonably priced. The locals eating there certainly appeared to be enjoying...More

Great little place, an oasis in Venice. So quiet and the beer was great on really hot day. Good value too, been ripped off in other places but this is for locals. Worth a visit from the chaos all around.

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
