Personal was very rude. Long cooking. Prices are big for this kind of food. Check your check because price can b wrong, not in your favor.

Food was excellent but a cover charge per person was applied and also a service charge which bought the cost of the meal up. There was a staff member at the door ushering passerbys in so don't stop to look at the menu in the window as you feel compelled to go in and eat. Having said that the staff... More

What a delightful experience and wonderful meal we had! We were wandering the streets of Venice, looking for a place to eat. We really wanted some fresh seafood. The owner was outside (as all of them are trying to attract customers). We stopped to talk to him and told him what we were wanting in a meal. He promptly showed... More

We didn't read the reviews before we came here, but we were pleasantly surprised. The service was exceptional and the food was amazing! We started with oysters (careful they are pricey) and they were fresh and delicious. We ordered the scallops with spaghetti and the lobster with a side of grilled veggies. They were all so good! I would definitely... More

Never do it. Please don't. Overcharged. Oversold. 12% auto tip on top of the usual and expected coperta. Charged for bread they didn't bring - then refused to remove the charge. Refused to allow our two children split a pizza. The waiter said it was too small to split and described a 6" pizza. Then brought a large 12" pizza.... More

Ristorante La Nuova Grotta was just a short walk from our hotel. It has display of fresh fish and other on ice which caught our eye as we were coming and going to the hotel. We read the reviews, some of which complained about the price, but after looking at the menu we found it about the same as other... More

Their food was horrible. Couldn't believe they charge €14 for caprese salad and €18 for gnocchi. Their gnocchi was the worst I have ever had. Awful awful.

We ate here after the restaurAnt at our hotel was full. It not as bad as its rating. It's a hard sell, to me Brick Lane in Venice. Londoners will know what I mean by that. The pasta was passable and the pizza was really good. The tiramisu was to die for, beautiful and my husband is an expert on... More

It is our last night and we wandered around to find an appealing restaurant after following trip advisor and having some amazing meals the last 2 days. What a gem! The staff were welcoming, informative and friendly. The food wow! My husband had beef carpaccio which was the best we have had, and we have had it every evening! It... More

Hard sell to dine there, once in, service poor. Fish sold by weight which amounted to Euro54 for an average sea bass

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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 criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
