I ordered scampi and found the amount of fish was no more than a desert spoonful, the rest was bones. I mentioned this to the waiter who just laughed. We chose this restaurant because it was a fine evening and near to our hotel but do wish we had not - what a waste of money.

We stumbled across this small restaurant on a rainy Venice evening having tried and failed to get in elsewhere - and what a happy circumstance that was! Like other reviewers we cannot comprehend some of the poor reviews posted for this delightful Osteria. From a warm but not pushy greeting whilst we looked at the menu to attentive but not... More

Awful service. Waiter was incredibly abrupt and rude. When asked for the wifi, his reply was "drinks first and then wifi" When he was told how rude he was, he then decided the place wasn't open for drinks!! Never had such awful service. Would highly suggest you avoid this place like the plague!!

I was looking for another restaurant and couldn't find it so I thought that I would give this place a try. I was very happy with the staff. They were kind and attentive and that made me really want to be here but the food was really not enjoyable. I blame myself for the first course as I ordered the... More

We visited here last night, we really enjoyed our evening. Very friendly staff, excellent food, lovely little place. Quite busy, lots of people going for the fish dishes. I had spaghetti with meat sauce, a simple dish but beautifully executed, very tasty. My partner had a pizza which was also enjoyed. Hoping to visit again before we leave Venice, happy... More

Nice atmosphere (after they changed the Spanish reggae music to an Italian lady singer!) Chilled place to eat. Food was tasty, but portions could be slightly bigger.

We popped in around 5 pm on a gorgeous day. The restaurant was empty, but despite this, they wouldnt let us sit for a drink - "dinner only." I could understand if we had come at peak dinner time, or they were busy, or it was raining and they could be selective - but it was an empty restaurant. Fine... More

We were out walking around Venice with our teenage sons and spotted this restaurant. No hard sell as we looked at the menu outside just a friendly greeting. The head waiter is very nice and the chef made up vegetable soup from scratch for us which was amazing. The crab pasta and grilled fish were beautifully cooked as was the... More

We had a lovely dinner here tonight. I had gnocchi Gorgonzola, which was delicious, my husband had spaghetti with seppie nere (squid ink), absolutely amazing flavour. We also shared insulate al pulcinello. Great, laid back music was just the ticket.

Food was ok, prices according to its location, which is enviable. Service was slow, although only two tables had guests, four in total. It is a pity.

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.
