We wanted to sit at a table for 4, because it was quieter in that section. Nope. We could sit only at a table for two. We ordered one pizza to split (it was lunch) and water. The pizza was adequate. We asked for the bill...and waited longer than it took to order the pizza and eat it. Surprise! There... More

Food was good. Staff was excellent and attentive. Risotto was excellent. The only negative comment was the service was slow. Worth stopping

Had a very nice meal here, was quite expensive due to the sevice charges. Desserts were brought out on a board so we could choose, they were very good. People have moaned about the Pizzas on here, but they are not allowed to have pizza ovens in Venice due to fires, so not traditionally made. Nice to sit outside. Service... More

We stumbled across this restaurant, in an attractive square. That is about the only good thing that can be said about it. The tasteless seafood pizza arrived lukewarm. The waitress offered to reheat it, which we refused & requested a new pizza, as a reheated pizza would be like eating leather. She said that as she regarded the plate as... More

We decided to walk through some very narrow but beautiful somVenetian streets and see where we ended up. We turned acorner into a wonderful open space, Campo Sant Angeli and sat at a table at the Hostaria Galileo. Friendly staff helped us choose from the menu and we ended up having a great meal. Recommended are the Sicilian pizza and... More

We had been walking all morning and really needed to sit down and eat. Because of the cover charge and the fact that it was a cafe in a busy campo, I really didn't expect much. But the food was really quite good - my daughter thought it was the best pizza she had in Venice. My husband had a... More

Very cold local beer, paired with a scrumptious salad loaded with fresh veggies, all added up to make this a perfect lunch stop (filled with loads of local character).

I came here with my family on our visit to Venice. The waiters were rude and we waited forever to get the bill. Give it a miss.

Won't go back or recommend others to go. 2 of 4 waiters were rude. last two waiters were good. Add a big service fee to their high prices. Toilets had no toilet seats... Food was ok but small portions. Pizza could have more content for the price - large areas of the diavola had no salami. Too bad

The pizza was delicious but once they brought us our check they tried to steal €10, thinking we weren't paying attention. Check your bill and your change!

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.
