We stopped here for dinner on our last night of the trip. I wish we found this place the first night and gone more than once. The pasta is homemade. The dishes are local and fantastic. The price is reasonable.

The owner invites you in with a promise of homemade pasta and no extra charges. We had pizza that was ok. We ordered 2 pizza but was served 3. No bread or welcome drink was given. The bill had a service charge of 12% added.

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

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a

From Campos s. Maria Formosa, Castillo, take the exit over the bridge next to Palazzo Malipiero. Into Riga Giuffa. The Osteria is on the right very near the end. Enjoy
