“Always follow the locals!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

Desperate for a coffee and a bite to eat after a busy morning when we stumbled on this great find on Calle Fiubera near St Marc's Sq. Busy with locals nipping in for a coffee and cake, or a quick sandwich. Also do a selection of rice and pasta dishes. Two tasty sandwiches and two coffees €12, dish of really good mushroom and meat pasta €7. Excellent quality at a decent price, especially given proximity to the main tourist attractions.

“Lovely cafe, lovely coffee and delightful Frittelas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Popped in here 2 or 3 times when we were getting lost in the streets around Venice. Always happy to find it for a coffee and a treat. Lovely range of treats, lots of space and a nice atmosphere. Make sure you try one of the Fritella Zabione - Delightful!

“Good lunchtime stop near St.Marks Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Provides a good selection of filled sandwiches, salads, pastas, pastries and more; and of course, great coffee. Service is quick and prices are good. It is clearly frequented by local Venetians and is well worth the short walk from St.Mark's square away from the tourist traps.

“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.
