Difficult to find a restaurant that serves good great meat in Venice as most restaurants are fish restaurants but Alla Scala does both in excellence! The prices are not cheap but the food great!!

The Trattoria alla Scala is tucked away off the beaten path in Venice. It's SO worth taking a little trouble to find! The service was old-world professionalism at it's best. Each course was well prepared, with delightful little extras at every turn. Nice wine list.

Had a reservation for 8pm. The good thing was that the food was excellent tasting, good quality food, absolutely faultless; the drink on arrival much appreciated and is a lovely restaurant, if a little too lit up for out liking - you really need to turn a few lights off or change to low coloured bulbs; its a bit like...

We arrived at our hotel at around 2pm, having been up since 4am and wanted somewhere to grab a spot of lunch. Our concierge recommended this restaurant which was a short walk around the tiny alleys. Wonderfully traditional - service is relaxed and happy, we had the most amazing pasta dishes (the seafood one was dramatically served up in a... More

We only managed to have starters here but it was delicious and the restaurant was happy to have a pram in the restaurant (some others weren't). Staff were super friendly and accommodating!

We had wondered around Venice getting lost in the back streets as you do and decided we needed to eat. We came out into a tiny square and found this little restaurant. It was quite early in the evening and we thought it was not yet open but we were welcomed in and given a table opposite the door in... More

After several days in Venice this was the perfect stop before we left. Sorry cannot describe the pizzas (capricciosa & ai formaggi) but we had a very good culinary experience after several bad ones. Balsoi spasiba!

I arrived at the restaurant around 2PM, after a long travel day with multiple delays. I was starving and wanted a quick bite to eat and a glass of wine with friends; who had already had lunch. I ordered mussels / clams and a bottle of nice wine for us to share. The waitress, immediately said this was not enough... More

We had our last meal here after we were gracefully let down by another restaurant - Trattoria Al Gazzettino and I am so glad that we did.We arrived late and we were welcomed in the door by staff which was very pleasant. The menu had a lot of variety. I had the seafood spaghetti it was delicious and my partner... More

In 1953, just after few years from the ending of the world war II, Lino Pierazzo decided he was going to open a restaurant in the heart of Venice, between S.Marco square and Rialto bridge; starting with just his wife as a cook, he succeeded in making it one of the most popular restaurant of Venice. About fifty years later, his son and daughter keep on his work with a modern group of waiters and cooks.

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.
