We sat down at the tables in Pizza San Marco for lunch, but when the menu arrived, after about a 30 minute wait, the prices being three times higher than places with better service 3 minutes walk away convinced us that we would just settle for a gelato. The waiters seemed to be devoting all their energy to strutting around,... More

The food was not exceptional, but the experience to me is not to be missed. The atmosphere is of a bygone era. The waiters are impeccable in their white coats. On a dry hot day in July we stopped here for cool refreshments and a lovely musical treat. Knowing that Charles Dickens did the same here made us feel like... More

you must give this a try when you decide to visit St. Marks square. There are a great deal of choices, but in my opinion this is the best. It is not cheap, but of course nowhere is there. The decor is beautiful, and dates back to the mid 1700s, the staff are all dressed very smartly, and are very... More

Great if slightly overpriced coffee house in St Marks square. However despite the prices the cafe is in a beautiful setting with amazing decor and a great history. And the coffee and hot chocolate is of a very high standard. Worth the visit.

Being in Venice at my birthday, it was obvious to go to Café Florian to celebrate. Elegant interieur. Exquiside choclate and cakes. Arrogant waiters to a degree, that they are ridiculous. Excessive prices. But at the end an amusing experience!

It's a beautiful cafe in Piazza San Marco and the inner decoration is really nice. The waiters are so kind and the service is satisfying but the menu is really overpriced.

Located in the heart of St Marks square, this lovely restaurant is great for enjoying Venetian opulence and a spot of people watching. Lovely Venetian hot chocolate!! Great small bites for lunch and friendly staff. A real gem!

Oldest cafe in Venice, but with it's Venetian decor and traditional coffee it was a really worthwhile visit! Service was exceptional! Yes, it is expensive but it's worth it just to experience it!

Most famous and one of the oldest cafés at St. Mark’s Square. Elegant, bougie, tourist-flooded and worth checking out. Slightly overpriced menu but you are really there for the scene. Decent breakfast food and good coffee. Desserts looked scrumptious.
