My favourite restaurant in Venice. A travel feast taking you back through the centuries to secrete and forgotten recipes. A true adventure. Go for a lunch and sample your 5 course meal at a leisurely pace! The menu is exquisite! Food is amazing in a romantic setting. Don't miss this restaurant as it's the best in Venice and an experience... More

This restaurant is not for everybody. Even if you want to pay for fine-dining, please take into consideration what is the experience that you want to have. If you only want high-end service and food slightly more sophisticated that only pasta and pizza, there are other places less expensive (or at the same level) with better ambiance and décor. If...

We stayed at the Residenze of the Bostrot, and loved it. They have a swanky apartment upstairs with 2 guest rooms and a large dining room that overlooks the canal. We had a super romantic canopy bed, a balcony

My husband and I recently took a much needed break together away from our three children for the first time in many years. We each wanted somewhere romantic, with good food and a great atmosphere to celebrate nothing in particular other than just being married a really long time. I found this restaurant online after much research and sent this,... More

Solid food, pretty dining room, lovely location, service a little pretentious. My biggest complaint was that the first question they asked was who recommended the restaurant and then wrote down the hotel name, as though there was a referral system in place. It just set an odd tone. The pastas were quite good, the duck a bit overdone (despite a... 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.
