The restaurant is warm and filled with locals - a good sign. Our tour guide took us here the night defied to enjoy wine and tapas type side dishes. We returned for dinner and truly enjoyed our selection of wines, seafood, and pasta.

Even though the staff was friendly and the atmosphere quite nice the food was a real disapointement . Tasteless and quite expensive for the quality -87€ for 2 people (bottle of wine included). You will find many better places for the same budget.

We wanted a more "local" experience rather than the typical tourist offerings. After checking some alternatives and reviews we decided to take the 450m hike to Osteria al Portego. This is a small, unpretentious establishment with a typical stand up area for chiccetti and about...More

Al Portego is absolutely the best restaurant in Venice! The food is absolutely divine. The service is great. And the atmosphere is wonderful. We've been coming here for 10 years - we've even had our pre-wedding day dinner there! We went back last night for...More

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
