Just confirm the views of all the one star reviewers who had a bad experience here: there is a general contempt for the non-Italian customer. We were given the worst table in the house - though it was fairly empty (and we were tired). An...More

The owner, tight lipped at first, loosened up after he told us that Queen Paola of Belgium had lunched 5 times in his establishment. I guessed that it it were good for her surely it could be for me as well. Had a fabulous Spaghetti...More

If you want to avoid the tourist traps in Venice and look for a trattoria where the locals eat, I would consider Il Nuovo Galeon. We were there for lunch and enjoyed the pasta, fish of the day and local wine. The food and wine...More

The portions are good but tiny - more like starters than mains. The service is good but they will charge you a mandatory 10% service PLUS a service charge of €3 per person for some breadsticks. Most other places in Venice will charge you one...More

Usually good at avoiding traps like this but on this occasion we were tired after travelling and it looked the busiest restaurant on the street at that time. It seems there are two separate restaurants running from the same place - the locals get one...More

Our hotel recommended this place and it did not disappoint. We loved the frittis and enjoyed the main dishes as well. It was an enjoyable meal in a cozy atmosphere.

Based on one dinner for 3 people [pasta, fish and chicken as main courses], this place proved to be mediocre at best. Overcooked, along with stale bread, at a high price. Venice offers far better elsewhere!

Unlike all the bad reviewers we had a great experience! Sergio our waiter was a hoot! He was playing with us with his recommendations, by the end of the meal he was singing to us, I can see why others could think he was rude...More

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

Google maps show it in two places: part way down Calle San Domenego (wrong) and - if you do a search for the restaurant by name - Via Giuseppe Garibaldi (correct).
