We have been to a lot of places in Italy, but we have never seen people so impolite as this place. They were really annoyed we didn't speak Italian and they tried to fool us with the bill (adding another drink).

Hello Peter, We're very sorry that our staff didn't pay serious attention to you and about the bill. Unfortunately, our pastry shops are often crowded and there might be a little bit of confusion. We'll do our best to prevent other situations as this one. We hope to have you again as our customer. Have a nice day More

Just around the corner from our B&B, this was our breakfast stop for 3 mornings n Venice. Great coffee and pastries and very reasonable price. Stand up tables only but I notice there are 3 other locations that we didn't visit. Also did a take out lunch of sandwiches one day and they also were very good. I would highly... More

...but well worth it to enjoy a delicious pastry. I highly recommend the Venetian cannoli! Tucked away a little bit but easy to find with google maps.

The food and drinks were reasonably priced. The food was well cooked and there was plenty of choices to choose from.

This is a very elegant, fancy-looking cafe with some delicious sandwiches, pastries and cappuccinos. They have a few tables that you can relax at (you will need to pay extra on your food/drinks to sit) and free wifi. It's a great location close enough to some of the major attractions but secluded enough to not be too busy. Perfect for... More

Had take out pasta and pastries. The pasta was fairly tasty even after getting cold by the time I was back to my hotel, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it. However, I WOULD go out of my way and wait in the lines for the pastries, which are ridiculously inexpensive, fresh and delicious. Definitely go for... More

I know all the reviews here are positive, which is why we visited Rosa Salva, but the service was so horrific we walked out. We asked the woman behind the counter for a selection of pastries and started to point out which ones we wanted. She stopped us and asked us how many we wanted total, and we said we... More

Antonio R, Proprietario at Rosa Salva, responded to this review

Dear Emma, permit me to apologize for what happened. I think the reason why the girl asked you how many of pastries in total you wanted should be simply because we have several sizes of trays according the weight/number of pieces the client ask for. Without this simple question how would have she known which tray to use to serve... More

It is just a few minutes walk from Piazza San Marco and a great little find! Full of locals, great coffee and really friendly staff! They have a wide selection of snacks and cakes available too. We paid less than 3 euros for 2 coffees and would definitely recommend it!

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.
