We had a terrific dinner at Osteria Oliva Nera. Isobelle, the owner, was very accommodating and the food was fantastic. My veal cheeks entree was perfect as was the Stuffed Zucchini Flower appetizer. First rate all the way.

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
