We had a terrible experience the day before last when dining at the Osteria Garanghelo only a few steps further down the same street (Via Garibaldi). Thanks god there are places in Venice where good healthy food is delivered at a reasonable price.

We were so lucky to have this place down the street from us. When you are tired of pizza and pasta and you don't eat meat, this is a real treat. My son and I stopped here a couple of times, once we ate there (paper plates etc. provided) and once we took it back to our apartment. Both times... More

It's nice that this place pure vegetarian (and vegan some days), and I think the only such eatery in Venice. The food however is just okay, and expensive for what it is. They have some nice drinks and the lady that runs the place is very nice and will explain all the ingredients.

Doriana, the owner, is chatty, friendly and passionate about what she offers. Food is made fresh and replaced when they run out with new dishes through the day. And her menu changes often, week to week (if I understood her correctly) depending on what organic produce is available to her. We had the taster plate of 5 items and loved... More

Chose Le Spighe because of good press reviews. More of a deli really, with a central table for all-comers and the chance to stay and sample the vegan/ vegetarian food on offer at lunchtimes and early evening. We were welcomed with a 'taster' plate of all the dishes at about 10 euros and could choose a bottle of (organic) wine... More

Been there couple of times to try some vegan dishes; unfortunately prices are way too high compared to the (very) small items served and, moreover, the staff is rude and impolite, constantly looking annoyed by the customers.

This is a truely wonderful "fast food" place to pick up lunch and take to the Public garden. The proprietess is pleasant and takes the time to explain every dish she has prepared for that day. The buckwheat with ginger was something to knck your socks off and the little fried cakes were as good as she promised. The food... More

it's not cheap - you pay by the weight and no decent plate will be under €10. But the selection of food (what you see on the counter is what there is to have) is great and executed with skill - each little bit is done well and tastes great. I would come back as the price is justified by... More

Really liked my healthy (organic, fresh, balanced) and delicious lunch there. I took a medium sampling plate, and it was enough; another couple started with medium plates and had small plates of seconds. Food is priced by weight; my medium plate and soda drink summed up to 11 euro, which is about what one would have paid for a weight-priced... More

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.
