“We couldn't have asked for a nicer local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Situated 20 yards from our hotel, we spent two evenings in here. Often when you travel you can feel a bit in a touristy bubble. Here, the two lovely bar men twinkled at us and were so friendly with everyone that came in.
The cocktail bar was a good mixture of classics, such as old fashioneds and bellinis, all served how they should be. Even something such as a glass of wine was served with a flourish, with the waiter replacing my rather sour red with a fruity valpolicella and waving away my awkwardness.
The second night we went in, we were not only recognised, but our drinks order was remembered. Lots of tourists came in and the waiters switched comfortably from French to German, to British. We did get very blooted, I have to confess, but if was such a relaxed atmosphere. Plus, you are given bowls of crisps to chomp on and also sandwiches, also on the house. On the Saturday evening, the bar suddenly became heaving, bulging with locals, I guess, which was fab, as they were all beautiful and some were wearing fancy hats.

“As someone said; "A great place to get squiffy".”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Have visited here on last two trips to Venice. Great cocktails and friendly service and by Venetian standards the prices are not too high. Fully recommend.

“A quiet corner oasis in San Marco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Our favorite place for morning cappucino with a warm croissant. A small, welcoming caffe tucked into a quiet corner of San Marco. Under the awnings one could sit outdoors, even in the rain. At the end of a day filled with walking and being amazed at every turn in this amazing city, it was an oasis of calm, perfect for that before-dinner and requisite Aperol spritz. Grazie!

“Warm, welcoming ... And punchy !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

A good place to have a typical chocolate or a wine break in San Marco. Staff is welcoming and punchy, speaking almost every language ! Small room, small terrace, music, local people and tourists. Definitely a good mixture.
