Our great little coffee place

We chanced upon it on our very first day in Venice, while walking from San Marco to the Rialto bridge since we had to take a ferry next morning from Rialto and we wanted to know how much time it takes to reach the spot from San Marco. We stopped by for a cup of coffee and some small bites... read more

Wonderful cakes, nice light lunch, busy atmosphere. Staff very friendly but seating is limited. A lot of people who work in Venice get their coffee fix or lunch here.

Great pastries. This place is always super busy. It was a little hard to find at first because the location on trip advisor is a few blocks off. We had some cream filled pastry, I really wish I knew the name. All their cream filled pastries are amazing so u can't go wrong. Make sure to go here if your... More

Our walking tour guide recommended Rosa Salva during a break on our tour, and we enjoyed a pastry and espresso at that point. Later in the day, we returned for more pastries and gelato. Everything was delicious, and staff were very friendly.

We were recommended Rosa Salva and set out to find it, hampered by the closure of a key artery bridge. It was worth it. Great coffee, very tasty cake and perfectly friendly service - functional, but nice. There's loads of choice and enticing take away miniatures to keep you going. Recommended for any visit, even if you just need some... More

Go to the island of San Giorgio Maggiore and from the terrace of the Rosa Salva caffe you will have one of the best views in Venice.

Everything looked great, but I fell in love with the fritella chantilly, it just melts in your mouth.

Reading previous reviews I was prepared to meeting rude staff. They were not particularly friendly or overly polite but I haven't come across their rudeness either. Nice and fresh pastries. Pop in and have a coffee with a macaroon or something local.

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.
