Great place to sit down for a quick snack, an aperitivo, and some gelato. Located right in Piazzo San Marco, the atmosphere is amazing and the drinks and gelato were good. The service was very nice and I would recommend this place for a relaxing...More

All I can say is bad taste, rude waiter and high price. The waiter that looks like he’s from Indian is very rude to us. He gave us the receipt and tried to make us pay, while we haven’t even finish our drinks and desserts....More

Fantastic location and wonderful place to watch the world go by. Coffee is expensive and service was just okay but to be able to sit in St Marks Square makes it worth it.

You expect to pay premium when you sit down for a coffee at the Piazza San Marco. I wouldn't mind the 5 EUR for an espresso, maybe not even the 8 EUR for a cappuccino (although hey, seriously 3 EUR extra for milk and milk...More
