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

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

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

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.
