Difficult to find but worth going

Very difficult to find (look at the sign on top of a little “tunnel” that takes you there) and close to the Rialto bridge. Is a sort of self-service serving a lot of typical Venetian “tapas”. Great and affordable place for lunch.

Gislon is one of the places one does not want to advise, just because you want to keep it private! It is a great place for a quick lunch at 2 minutes from Rialto bridge. Mozzarella in carrozza with ham or anchovies is a must try, better if accompanied by a spritz! It is hard to be found if you... More

Basic, rustic and tasty Venetian and Italian food available in a self service canteen (downstairs) or a sit down restaurant (upstairs). The staff are ok, but a little abrupt and don't speak much English. This is because they're busy, and is nothing personal! The self service area can get very busy, so be prepared to be eating with lots of... More

Another great find in Venice. This is a delightful self service cafeteria. The food is good and it's always packed with locals as well as tourists. The staff are helpful and speak enough English to be able to explain what's what. All the food is on display so you know exactly what you're getting. It tastes as good as it... More

Remember that a Rosticceria is not supposed to be a full restaurant. This place has good food, bustling atmosphere. Had a great calamari fritti and mixed grilled fish.

If your near rialto bridge and are looking for a quick/casual bite this is great. We stayed just next to it and ate here about 3 times a day. Coffee in morning was cheap and good, pasta in afternoon was nothing fancy but pasta dishes range from 7-10 euro. Fried calamari and grilled shrimp were great. This is not a... More

Venice can be pricy when it comes to food, but doesn't necessarily have to be so. This place is a good example. There are two parts to this restaurant. Downstairs it functions as a self service cafeteria and upstairs with service. I tried the self service part of the restaurant, the food was good tried their lasagna, risotto and a... More

Seems like a self serve cafeteria, which it is, but go up a narrow stairway in the middle and they have a full service restaurant upstairs. Very good food in a plain-ish setting.

Every time I am in Venice I find this place I love their Mozzarella Carrozza delicious. I recommend everyone to try one with a Spritz!! There is also a little gelato place around the corner which is another must to visit after you have eaten mozcarrozza!!!

This may be billed as a value-for-money eatery, but I would steer clear of their fish lasagne and gnocchi in meat sauce - completely underwhelming. At €7 a plate, standing (cafe bar style) was okay. It was however too busy, the staff did a lovely job of serving us promptly

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
