Had a great evening here. Would highly recommend!!!!! Had an experienced waiter, some gorgeous wine and two main and two desserts with an amuse bouchée, with a silky bottle of wine for €170. They did forget it was my wife's birthday but I forgive them as the decor was perfect for the evening, beautiful candles and perfectly laid cutlery. It's... More

We stopped here for a coffee and a beer, it's located on the Canal side by the Rialto bridge and alongside another two restaurants and they were all vying for trade and this involved one of the waiters singing to passers-by some of whom didn't quite appreciate his dulcet tones!! I found the latte okay and to be able to... More

Love This place, and Love the Entire Staff. Seven of us met for dinner and it was simply magical. The Decor is cool, modern, hip, charming and romantic. Our Host was amazing, he treated us as family coming home to celebrate. Drinks were divine, the food was tasty and well proportioned and the atmosphere delightful. An absolute must in Venice...

We visited one evening very early in March and the restaurant was very quiet. The decor was top class and some has had a few great ideas to make it look so attractive yet retain a nice relaxed ambience. The food quality is unquestionably very good but in my view over complicated by over enthusiastic methods in preparation i.e. Dishes... More

We arrived here having just left a marvelous performance at the opera and were very hungry after experiencing the moving tragic death of the heroine! Everything about the restaurant was lovely. The welcome was warm even though we hadnt booked.The decor is modern with some wonderful local twists like the Murano glass chandelier. The food was sublime. The Wine List... More

We reserved a table weeks by email before our visit to Venice, checked photo's and was impressed. Arrived on time, a very dis-interested 2 different guys asked for our name/time etc they had no reservation for us- only 2 other diners so getting a table should not have been a problem. Interior of the restaurant very impressive we anticipated a... More

Dear guest, I'm the owner of Caffè Centrale and first of all I would like to thank you for your useless and expected review. Let me say I totally disagree with your behaviour, unfortunately for you I was present the night you dined at my restaurant and I'm sure that your reservation was written in our book, therefore, a table...

Impeccable service and food. One of the best meals I've had in Venice. Atmosphere chic but warm and wait staff beyond friendly. Highly recommend!

We arrived in Venice late after being stuck at the airport in the snow. The hotel recommended Caffè Centrale as it was close and open late. Service was good, but the portions quite small. The dessert of hot meringue and custard was delightful. Usual city prices but a nice place for a late dinner.

Thank ladybenedict

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
