L'Osteria di Santa Marina is a family-style Venice restaurant that clearly attracts a range of locals either simply for a meal or to celebrate an event. It is pleasantly noisy and atmospheric with much fun and laughter - as well as very high quality food,...More

This Osteria served the best meal of our holiday and one that ranks with the best we have eaten anywhere. It is a little off the beaten track but not very far from the Rialto Bridge and located in a lovely little square, where we...More

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri
