We were so lucky that we stayed in a hotel close to this famous restaurant. We always came here for breakfast, lunch and dinner during our stay in Venice... The food was great and affordable. But the crowd was just crazy with both locals and tourists ! Never seen this place empty... people even ate while standing up. This showed... More

Very casual, packed at lunch time, people eat at the bar, standing by the door, or, for the few lucky (or patient) ones at one of the tables.... but that's exactly what we loved about it!! Although it is in a touristic area, we felt that many locals (or at least Italians) were hanging out there. Most of the food... More

Pretty good food, bad cheap wine. Fast food feel . Near Rialto bridge. Lots of women stopped by for bathroom break, counterman told them they had to buy food to use toilet. The place looked dirty, and smelled bad. We will try a different restaurant next time.

We found that place by chance and discovered later that it was even a recommendation by our airbnb-landlord. It is kind of hidden but worth a visit for a quick Lunch or dinner break. I wouldn't exactly go there in the evenings to spend hours with friends but the food is good and prices are fair. I would not have... More

Simple dishes, cheap prices. You take, pay, and sit at the bar. There is not much space at the ground floor, so come before 18:00 to take place.

Accidentally came by but was surprised. Food was good especially squid. Value wine at affordable prize if you buy a bottle of shelf. Would recommend this place when you need a short break from a long walk.

We visited twice and had mixed opinions. The first time we took some mozzarella snacks to eat outside in the sun and these were great. We went back because it had such a true Italian flare but the food we received (pasta with crab or muscles) was really disappointing and much better food can be found elsewhere. We wouldn't return.

My partner and I were advised to eat here from our airbnb host. The food all looks amazing and it seems reasonably priced however, when I ordered my lasagna it was put in the microwave to heat up and when I received it it was still cold. Not what I was looking for in an Italian meal. My partners fish... More

Their service is very good, efficient and friendly. All kinda of seafood. The fish is awesome and the squids, fried and scampi are just amazing. It does not look much from the outside, but the food and service is the best in venice. Must go.

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.
