Good service

The service was some of the best we had in Italy. The food was good, not excellent, but certainly quality for price. I stayed at the hotel and ate there twice.

You have to search a back street by the Rialto bridge to find this place but it is well worth the effort. The service was friendly and efficient but we were the only ones in there! Value was good and the food was excellent. They had a well stocked wine collection too.

I felt the prices of the food here weren't all that justifiable, considering there are SO many hole-in-the-wall spots in Venice where the spaghetti vongole is PERFECT (and no more than 7 euros, at most). But the dim lighting, the mahogany chairs, the location just near Rialto makes this place a worthwhile visit.

Enjoyed a lovely dinner with my parents on our only night at Venice- the restaurant had been recommended by an Italian work colleague and it did not disappoint! It is located on a side street next to the Rialto, & the cost / value for food is very good.. The service was excellent, grazie mille Nino!

We went looking for somewhere away from all the tourists and we found this little restaurant in the quiet alley directly behind the Rialto Hotel. The service was traditional yet very pleasant and efficient. The food was quite reasonable and delicious - lovely fresh scallops and yummy fungi pasta.

Our Hotel owner recommended this Restaurant. We found it down a back street; there are directions on the floor in a stone slab just as you come off the Rialto Bridge. There are a large bunch of glass grapes hanging outside. We had a lovely meal; very relaxing, peaceful and the service was great. They gave us free soup as... More

We tried the different kind of Venetian specialties and everything was delicious, including the amazing tiramisu that we took for the dessert. We went with a Groupon offer and they treated us very well.

Really nice Restaurant, quiet place with great food, the service is really good, giving the right privacy but without forgetting to provide an excellent service with even some suggestions. It's a first category restaurant but the price is not too bad and the quality and presentation of the food is the perfect mix between local and new cuisine

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.
