We went with high expectations given the excellent reviews and recommendation of our hotel (whose other choices had all been excellent). Unfortunately this was one of the worst ‘fine-dining’ experiences we have ever had. It started with a 10 minute wait to even get a...More

The brother and sister duo behind this restaurant do a marvelous job. Over the years, we have been back many times, both for lunch and dinner. It is not a quick bite pizzeria or trattoria. It is a proper, elegant [and yet casual] restaurant that...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

Inspired by seasonality, Local is a creative and natural take on the Venetian traditional cuisine. The finest organic ingredients, sourced from small local producers are combined with simplicity, to enhance flavours and characteristics. At lunch dishes are simple and cicchetti served at the bar; at dinner you can enjoy the a la carte and tasting menu. All is prepared in the show kitchen.
