Good drinks, great choices of snack, nice atmosphere, cool staffs. We didn't see any turists but lots of local clients. Fair price considering its location (steps to st marco) I Do Recommend It.

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
