It is an historical and stunning cafe in San Marco. Grab a coffee the italian way (at the counter) and you won't spend more than in any other cafe in San Marco range. The coffee and the drinks, however, are delicious, in my opinion the best cafe in Venice.

Give this one a miss unless you like putting your money down a grid. 14 Euros for a coffee that was only warm is just a joke. Ok you do have live Music

This is a good place for a quick Esspresso at the Bar with a reasonable price which doesn't make you feel like you haven been robbed. :-) Mine was more like a Ristretto which I like pretty much!

Eating in St. Mark's square is a challenging proposition. We were pleasantly surprised by the food and service at Grandcaffee Quadri. It was expensive, but the view and people watching made it worthwhile. We were able to sit back and enjoy St. Mark's on a beautiful day. Service was also very good and we never felt rushed.

I love this place on many levels - but especially because, in spite of it's amazing position and fabulous interior, you can still stand at the bar and have a coffee like the Italians, and it is a fraction of the price of the "table price". In fact it is one of the best price cappuccinos and certainly one of... More

While visiting Venice we spent an evening at Quadri (upstairs restaurant). From the first welcome we received we knew this would be a top experience. The staff were very friendly, and experts in their field. The menu and the wines are nothing short of outstanding. If you would like an extra special dessert try the hazelnut ice-cream parfait. Have the... More

The Lob-Star sandwich was better value than the pot of tea. All served beautifully in a spectacular location. Expensive but well worth the experience and everything was delicious.

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.
