Highly recommend, staff was friendly. Bartender made us a shot he called "The Undertaker" after we asked for something strong. Great environment different then most bars you'll come across in Venice.

Enjoyed a quick bite at mid-day, and found this to be a great break from the San Marco Square madness. My pasta of the day was very, very good. We enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine with our lunch, chatted with a few locals and were completely refreshed.

We stayed in an apartment down the same road as this pub and walked past it a few times thinking it looked like a bit of a dingy place. How wrong we were! We decided to go in on our last night and it turned out to be the best night of our trip! Drinks are an average price for... More

4 hours later and we don't really want to leave. The bar staff are really friendly and make some awesome cocktails. It's a really friendly atmosphere and is one of the best places we have seen in Venice. Much better than that square. Don't go on a gondola. Save your 80 euros and get twatted in here instead!

We thought most of the food here was average as others have said but we really enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff. Normal 'pub' fare perhaps not but the capresi salad was wonderful. The mozzarella was creamy. The staff was friendly and the service was prompt when we stopped by for lunch. Good respite from the crowds. It was down... More

Nothing special. Rude staff. Beers are €6 and €3 for soft drinks. Good for a quick stop over, nothing for longer than an hour.

We enjoyed sandwiches here for dinner one night. The service was excellent. Diego, the owner, is a great host - be sure to stop by and say hi if you are in Venice. Sandwiches were excellent, overstuffed and great value for the price.

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.
