The presentations are beautiful, and immediately suggest that this is a restaurant serving high-end food. It’s not. We did a 5-course tasting menu, and everything was surprisingly disappointing. The duck tasted like liver and was inedible; the beef tartare had no taste at all. We...More

Although we tried to use "the Fork" to do online booking for this Venice trip, this restaurant was not on the list. I am guessing they are so popular and so good that the additional "overhead" from an online booking service is unneeded. From our...More

Santa Marina was truly excellent. From the amazing bread and amuse bouche to the delicious desserts it was a totally winning meal. In particular, the scallop carpaccio with shaved foie gras was one of the best things we ate in Italy.

One of the best meals we had in Venice. Was a little tough to find, but well worth it! The squid ink pasta was incredible.

Truly noting sort of a spectacular experience. We did a tasting menu and trussed the wonderful staff with wine pairing. The result was the best we have ever had in Venice over the many visits over the years.

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
