Visited on recommendation. The waitress was awful. Unfriendly right away. Drinks average. Thankfully we found a bar nearby to eat and drink with wonderful staff and in great location. I would not want to spend any time in a place I'm clearly not welcome.

We enjoyed a quiet walk around the Castello district, far away from the crowds of central Venice. In need of refreshments, we sat at a table outside this bar and treated ourselves to a glass of prosecco. Lovely views and very relaxing.

This is a out-of-the main-roads Bar right next to a park where you can have a reasonable coffee and a bite. Service can sometimes be inconsistent but the intentions are to make you feel at home. Never tried the lunch/dinner but only the coffee break...More

If you want to get a slice of how Venetians live, you couldn't go past this bar. A regular stop for many locals on the way home from the nearby vaporetto station, it offers passable but inexpensive meals and good sandwiches. It's never going to...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
