So worth a visit. Modern, but with lots of charm. Friendly staff and an exciting menu. Try the pigeon, foie gras and apple ice cream.

There are a ton of places to eat in Venice, it is a chore picking where you are going to eat. My wife and I walked passed this restaurant a couple of times, as it was close to where we were staying. It looks great, so we emailed and got a quick reply. The food was very good, the service... More

The restaurant is very cosy and modern and the atmosphere very chilled - its a very nice place to be. We ordered their signature Aperol Spritz which is pretty standard fare in Venice but here is made with a... More

After the restaurant of our choice being fully booked, our hotel recommended Caffe Centrale for us, after we asked for somewhere romantic and candle lit for our wedding anniversary. When we walked in, I said wow, this is lovely. The ambiance is very romantic with dim lighting, candles, and a piano. The waiter brought the menus on an ipad, which... More

Fantastic evening. Great food, perfectly attentive staff, lovely setting and the piano playing was special. This was a surprise birthday night and I could not have chosen a better place to share it. Very very special. Thanks to all at Caffe Centrale. You have given us some fantastic memories.

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.
