SS Giovani e Paolo. Nice little cafe stand-up cafe. The main salle is charmless, but OK. Decent loo and air conditioning. There are 3 other Rosa Salva cafes in Venice - all renowned for their good pasticceria. Try any - those with almond are fantastic. Nice staff.

I was in Venice with my husband over the Easter weekend. We decided to try Rosa Salva because we wanted to sit someplace and have a relaxed evening snack. It turned out to be a great choice. everything from the sandwich to the hot chocolate and little snack plate with the aperitif was flavourful. They also had a nice selection... More

We found this little place on our way back to St Marks square. What a find! The coffee was the best we have ever had, and the cakes and pastries were amazing. They have lots of food gifts for sale. Pay it a visit, you won't be disappointed.

Desperate for a coffee and a bite to eat after a busy morning when we stumbled on this great find on Calle Fiubera near St Marc's Sq. Busy with locals nipping in for a coffee and cake, or a quick sandwich. Also do a selection of rice and pasta dishes. Two tasty sandwiches and two coffees €12, dish of really... More

Popped in here 2 or 3 times when we were getting lost in the streets around Venice. Always happy to find it for a coffee and a treat. Lovely range of treats, lots of space and a nice atmosphere. Make sure you try one of the Fritella Zabione - Delightful!

Provides a good selection of filled sandwiches, salads, pastas, pastries and more; and of course, great coffee. Service is quick and prices are good. It is clearly frequented by local Venetians and is well worth the short walk from St.Mark's square away from the tourist traps.

Rosa Salva is a bakery or pasticceria, but don't let that title fool you. They serve small meals too including quiche, salads, pasta, and sandwiches. Don't you dare leave without trying a pastry! They are fabulous- I've been back three times this visit to Venice and have tried a variety of tasty treats- all of them delicious. I took a... More

Yes, there will be an equal quotient of locals versus stanieri, but still this is THE place to grab a pastry, gelato, sandwich or just a cuppa joe. Of the 3 locales, the one in Castello is by far the best. By that, I mean most authentic, most likely to have you surrounded by elderly local women, kids playing atop... More
