About a 10-15 minute walk from St. Marks. Recommended by our hotel. Pricey menu and small portions but for Venice it's above what you usually get in the tourist traps closer to the bay. It will cost around 60 Euro for two with a glass...More

We received a recommendation for the restaurant from a resident of Venice. And indeed the diners were Italians and tourists. The place is known for its fish dishes. We were four. Everyone ordered a fish or seafood dish. As well as special dishes of pasta...More

Ok, "vintage style" Wine restaurant for dinner. Service staff (also dressed sort of "vintage style"), are ok, but a bit distanced. They seem to have less interest in foreigners. Locals seem to go here for dinner as well as passing by for a glass of...More

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
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a

I am sorry, but I cannot help you with a reservation, I only reviewed the restaurant after a visit. I tried to send the link but tripadvisor do not accept that. Enjoy!
