Great local restaurant

Le Maschere, located in the Starhotels Splendid hotel in Venice, is a great example of a local restaurant serving up authentic Venetian cuisine. We were treated to a delicious ceasar salad, a frutti di mare pasta, whole, grilled, local fish, and a tiramisu to finish. The dishes were all delicious... read more

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

We stayed at the Splendid hotel and visited this restaurant, which is part of the hotel. The quality of the food was very average whilst the prices were premium. We had better and considerably cheaper meals within a few hundred yards of the hotel. Would not recommend.

My wife and I ate there with friends after reading several good reviews from trip advisor but we were disappointed. The wait staff was very friendly but it took a long time to get our food. The food was good - not great and slightly more expensive than I had expected. Wine was also expensive. We ordered a caesar salad... More

The food was good and the menu had resonably priced wine to accompany. Service was slow and for some reason seemed a little confusing for the staff (maybe its a bedding in period at the start of new season).

We were staying the hotel and after a long day of traveling and sightseeing we decided to have dinner right downstairs. We expect great things given the reviews on TripAdvisor but found our meals to just okay and slightly over priced. The service was great and the atmosphere was lovely, the roof was open and it was nice evening with... More

Thanks for a friend's recommendation, we had dinner here the first night we stayed in Venice. The hotel is lovely. The fact is, Venice is incredibly beautiful but compared to Tuscany (where we spent a week afterwards) the food all over was mediocre at best by Italian standards. I don't like when waiters rotate and here we had so many... More

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.
