4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

And capucinni! And serves delicious pastry. The small almond tart was the best I have ever tasted and this was not even Paris.

“Hard to Find, Easy to Remember...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Rosa Salva is a bakery or pasticceria, but don't let that title fool you. They serve small meals too including quiche, salads, pasta, and sandwiches. Don't you dare leave without trying a pastry! They are fabulous- I've been back three times this visit to Venice and have tried a variety of tasty treats- all of them delicious.
I took a lunch to go yesterday and ate on the island of Burano on a bench in the sunshine. A wonderful picnic, indeed!
Tonight I stopped in for spinach quiche and a pastry for only 3.50 euros- IN VENICE! It was wonderful and affordable and the interior is delightful with happy people coming and going. It is strictly a stand-up eatery, but well worth it.

“A sure bet for local cafe culture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Yes, there will be an equal quotient of locals versus stanieri, but still this is THE place to grab a pastry, gelato, sandwich or just a cuppa joe. Of the 3 locales, the one in Castello is by far the best. By that, I mean most authentic, most likely to have you surrounded by elderly local women, kids playing atop the nearby historical wellhead and Venetians lined up tightly inside placing their orders. Rosa Salva has a long history of fine catering, something to consider as well. I am done. The end.
btw: NO GRAND NAVI IN VENEZIA.

“If you stop for coffee and pastry anywhere in Venice, do it here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

A coffee bar "to die for". Also gift tins and coffees. Beautiful pastries. The ideal Venetian experience. Easy to miss if just walking through the piazza--but you'll be glad you found it.
