Excellent meal and good service.

My daughter and I went there for an early dinner around 7:30...pretty empty so we got an excellent seat by the window. My daughter got the linguine with shrimp...loved it...and I got the pesce with lemon sauce. They brought the whole fish to the table for view and then filleted it. Came with a... read more

We got there for a late dinner at around 10:30 PM. We went in because other places we're already starting to close their kitchen. The atmosphere was very romantic with dimmed lights. The service was top-notch the staff was very friendly and open to tourist. I must say the highlight of the night was definitely the food. They offered us... More

Aquapazza was one of our best meals in Venice this year. The food is simple and delicious. It was one of the few restaurants where the menu was only in Italian. We had a large assortment of the antipasti which were good and a very tasty spaghetti a la vongoles. The atmosphere is low key and casual. The served the... More

We had excellent food overall and we were happy with the solid service, if not sometimes arrogant, but still good. Venice is known for their seafood and all the seafood, pasta and pizza were great. They provided ample bruschetta on the house in the beginning and ample cookies at the end for all of us. We were able to sit... More

We had been trying to find good food in Venice and were having a tough time finding it. Finally, following the advice of our Gondolier, we went to Acqupazza. They regretted that they couldn't give us a later reservation time (only 7 PM was available) but we were happy with that. We are not European (we are Canadian) and we... More

After eating here, I was surprised at the number of positive reviews on TripAdvisor. But then I realized that Venice is filled with awful tourist trap restaurants, and in that context, this place is fine, perhaps even good. However, we had been very lucky to find many lovely, authentic, off the beaten path dining experiences (there is good food to... More

We were staying close by in the Sang Angelo hotel. I had been on trip advisor and read the reviews; which were at best mixed . For 3days we walked past and saw a full restaurant on our last day we decided to eat there as it was convenient. That was the biggest mistake we made here in Venice. Where... More

We rented an apartment near by and this was the recommended restaurant by the owner. We really should have had a reservation for a Saturday night, but like an American will do, we arrived well before Venetian diners and there was an available table. The great thing about this place, they do not have an English version of their menu.... More

We spent our first evening in this restaurant. Unfortunately the weather was not this good, so we couldn't enjoy our food outside on the piazza. The staff was friendly and the boss remembered to an Italian grandfather and the other members of the staff to his grandchildren. The food was delicious but the meals were way too big. I had...

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.
