One person place

A very small tourists free place with only few tables. Run by a sinle guy. Great salads and pastas. Definitely worth a try for a casual dinner

If it has an actual kitchen it is well hidden. Ordered cannoli and it appeared it was microwaved and not cooked fresh. My son ordered ravioli and the same thing, it did not appear fresh. While it did not taste bad, for what we were served it was way overpriced, and if you are dining out in Italy at a... More

Extremelly expensive for microwave pasta and bad pizza. Its a shame for tastefull venice! They also charged us with extra 15/100 taxes and we had to ask for the legal receipt ! It was the worst memory of our 5days family holidays in venice.

I tend to stick to recommended restaurants on my travels, but we were hungry and this place looked authentic. Shocking food - they should be ashamed to serve it! I was given microwaved pasta with a dollop of cheap pesto on top, and my husband's 'lasagne' was water-logged pasta drenched in bland sauce (not a scrap of meat in it).... More

Wonderful little place right on the canal. You can hire a gondola right outside the door! Intimate is not quite a strong enough word for this place; it's tiny, only about a half dozen tables. The kitchen is minuscule too but they're somehow able to produce an amazing variety of absolutely delicious pasta & meat dishes. Feels like you're in... More

The menu looked cheap from the outside and the decor looked cheap from the inside but cheap it isn't. We had a couple of caprese salads and some cannelloni which, by the sound of it, were cooked in a microwave a few feet away. Add in a beer, a small bottle of wine (as they don't serve by the glass),... More

There maybe no cover charge but the service charge was 15%. We both had pasta but it was cooked in the microwave. Would not recommend, there are better options in the same area.

We found this restaurant whilst walking around behind San Marco square. It is a small restaurant with only a couple of tables but the waiter was friendly. The menu although not extensive has pasta and pizza dishes and satisfied us. We ordered pizza and spaghetti. A note that the pizza are small ( approx 5 inch) overall very nice and... 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.
