OK, so you're not far from San Marco square and you want to sit down for a meal, but you want to eat as cheaply as possible. Then Karibu is the place for you. At these prices, you must be prepared for some pretty squalid food, though. The first courses, at least, are honest--decently cooked pasta with simple but reliable... More

Ate here two straight nights! It has great food for prices you won't find anywhere around here (we walked for about an hour before sitting down).

It was very cold in Venice this January that less restaurants were operating at that time, luckily Bar Karibu did open. Bar Karibu locates nearby some shuttle boat docks that you could either have a quick bite entering/leaving Venice. I only tried regular olive oil spaghetti, simplicity is always a good choice. Affordable price at total EUR 13.5 for 1... More

We popped in for a late bite of lunch. Good service fast and efficient. The house red was very palatable. We had pizza which was great for the price (€8) - good size and plenty of toppings. It is a basic restaurant so don't expect award winning food - just cheap quick good food. Overall we were very pleased compared... More

It's OK and not that expensive considering its proximity to Piazza di San Marco. The atmosphere is lacking and having been there a few times it's been convenient but has no Venetian staff. The Asian staff are rather aloof and although not rude, are not friendly. Could be a cultural thing.

I am here for lunch. We had tasteless pasta and undercooked grilled vegetables. It's Overpriced for terrible food and poor services. The pasta dish is supposed with shrimps. But I hardly found any.

1.50 euro cover charge per person. Ordered spaghetti carbonara and prosciutto and mushroom pizza. Nothing great; nothing authentic that will knock your socks off. Just an O.K. place to rest your feet in the San Zaccaria area with air condition, toilet and wifi...

Authentic pasta dishes, really Al Dente. Good value combo dinner. Attentive service. Can't beat free WiFi.

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.
