Took a while to find but well worth it. On a hot July night the place was buzzing. Its in the heart of the square. We had prosecco and spritz and just soaked in the atmosphere. There were about fifty or more customers seated outside this tiny cafe all served by one waiter who never seemed to get an order... More

Great experience here during afternoon not evening. Has panini, bruschetta, alcohol, and great outside seating. Friendly service but beware or bathroom- you are better off going in your pants. Only kidding but you should consider "holding it".

On our first full day in the City we strolled to get to know the area in which we are staying. There are many cafe's and restaurants nearby, but this one was pretty busy which impressed us. Good Panini's at very fair prices plus excellent coffee. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and we could see why it... More

Is there anything better than sitting here in the sun having a coffee & a sandwich mid morning ? Well maybe sitting in the fading sun having a Prosecco or Aperol. The staff are charming (if busy) & speak enough english so ordering is easy. The square is lovely & alive with Venetians going about there lives not simply tourists.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch and really enjoyed it! Mark it down as friendly to people who don't eat gluten (I was able to choose from several delicious salads!) Really inexpensive. They have an outside patio where the waiter will serve you or you can sit inside and order from the counter. We had a nice experience... More

This cafe is well placed on a large campo, affording ample opportunity to people watch and generally watch the world go by. There is a waiter there, youngish guy, mid to late twenties, messy hair, beard, glasses... who really couldn't care less about his job, or you for that matter. Still, if you can make a game out of asking... More

I stopped by Il Caffe after a tiring day to grab a Spritz and totally satisfied it. After reading some reviews I decided to try it. The staff was very welcoming and a Spritz was also great. What is more, I paid 2 € for it and stood up outside and wacthed the people. It was very nice moments.

A great place to stop and rest with a spritz or two and watch the world go by. Cheapest (and probably best) spritz at 2.5 euro. Popular with locals which is always great. A fantastic old espresso machine and Art Deco interior. A must pit stop during a stay in Venice.
