Le Maschere at the Splendid Venice is one of the few restaurants near San Marco Square that is popular with Venetians and tourists alike. This authentic Venetian restaurant serves classic dishes with a modern twist. Alternatively, for an exclusive dining experience, invite your guests for dinner in our private salon, the Room of Mirrors. While, for a leisurely drink or a quick coffee, head for our wonderful bar with canal views. Loved by local Venetians, Le Maschere offers an elegant dining experience around our beautiful, bright Campiello courtyard. Our menu of traditional Venetian cuisine takes you from the Mediterranean sea to the mountains, before our chefs add a personal touch and a modern twist to create something wonderfully and uniquely 'Le Maschere'.

Ravioli al dente, sauce a bit too thick.

The pasta al dente but the sauces a bit too thick and heavy for our delicate intestinal tract. The waiters and waitresses smiled occasionally and at the appropriate times... read more

We ate in this restaurant one night, the food was beautiful. It has a lovely ambience, and a pianist playing in the background which added a real nice touch.

I normally avoid hotel restaurants but yesterday booked at Le Maschere which was a mistake as the mussels were not fresh neither was the turbot. Although the Maitre readily changed the fish dish it all leaves a rather bad taste in the mouth.

I have eaten here several times. When I dine with Venetian friends this is where they take me. I suggest to eat in the Terrace. I read where one reviewer did not like the steak. Sorry, but Venice is on the water, not in cattle country. They specialize in fish. Trust the waiters recommendations.

This was our last night in Venice and after an unfogetable gondola tour near the Danieli Hotel, the gentle gondolier suggested us a local class restaurant. Le Maschere inside an hotel called Splendid was best dinner we had in the whole Italy. A welcome Bellini as soon as we seated and after trying local startes we ordered a turbot prepared... More

Mediocre food, lukewarm service and high price (40 Euros per person for Chateaubriand) were the reasons for this bad review. For the same price, one might be better off at a restaurant at Piazza di San Marco.

We were guests at the lovely Splendid Venice Hotel so we decided to give their restaurant a try after reading good reviews. It was not a good experience. At all. This was -- by far -- our most expensive and disappointing meal with the least attentive staff of our entire 3-city Italian vacation

Be aware, Venice restaurant is quite over price and the food is not very good in general. We stayed in the hotel and decided to have a dinner here as we were a bit tired of going to overpriced

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.
