Enjoy the pigeons show, slow service, average food, overprice but lovely location

I was there for lunch... The food was correct but much overpriced.. Insane to charge 9 euros for a bottle of cola... Waiters keep chassing pigeons so the dont land on a table and break all the glassware...maybe this is why they charge so much, they have to replace all the glasses the pigeons... read more

Great location with great views of San Marco. Tiramisu and coffee drinks were all good. Interior decorations were cheap and had a Disneyland-like feel. Prices were outrageous, but that's what everyone would expect given the location.

We ate twice at the Quadri, once for lunch our first day in Venice and again several days later for an afternoon snack after an exhausting three hour tour of the Doge's Palace. Both times the food and the service were excellent. I particularly enjoyed the lasagne and a sandwich that involved lobster. So good!! I am a big tea... More

Warning travellers.. don't be tempted by the tables in the sun on the square. This place charges 30 euros for 2 Spritz Aperol! Sure you get chips and nuts for free, but you get that anywhere else too. 2 Spritz with pizza and chips in Siena was 9 Euro overlooking the Campo. Oh.. and you have to fight the pigeons... More

Walked here based on trip advisor review. Incredible setting, beautiful and great service. Unfortunately we had 5 kids with us and just couldn't come at the price of food and drinks. We had a croissant each (for 5 euro each) and wandered off for a cheaper brunch. They were lovely to us despite the restricted ordering.

Nice cozy decoration, good service.Had a hot chocolat and my wife a capuccino, best ever, period. But why am I surprised? Italians invented these drinks...

I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this piazza and just had to sit down so this was the perfect place. The service was impeccable and although we only had drinks, we were well looked after. Music was playing nearby and it was just delightful

Happily the day's aqua alta condition had receded and the sky had cleared by the time we arrived. This was our third trip to Venice and our second time to listen to the music under the stars. They have done away with the 'table' charges (probably by upping the prices of the drinks but at least you know what the... More

First, make sure you know which "Quadri" you are booking. Before we arrived in Venice, we booked the beautiful upstairs Ristorante Quadri. Unfortunately, there was a mix up in our travel schedule and we had to cancel our reservation. However, I must say that our communications and interactions with the staff at Ristorante Quadri were wonderfully warm. So, will will... More

Our bill for drinks on our final night was 750 euros, for 9 of us. Worth every penny. The most wonderful setting after spending 10 nights there and arriving on the Orient Express. Many people complain about the price, but you should get up early and watch the work that goes into this place. All the produce arriving by boat... More
