Quiet restaurant off the beaten track, our waiter was lovely and the surroundings relaxing & peaceful - bit too quiet on the night we visited to be honest! Seafood risotto was great but other dishes bit hit & miss.

Nice and quiet place. The waiter is a good host. He is warm and friendly. Food is tasty. We had scampi Risotto where the taste is perfectly balanced. The Scallop antipasti is a must to try. Good sauce to along with too.

We had a beautiful evening in the restaurant. The service was very obliging. The card in the restaurant did not show all dishes displayed outside what is slightly irritating, but everything is available on demand. The recommendation of the waiter was perfect and in the end we had the best dinner of our whole stay. Especially the antipasti plate, mixed... More

We got a groupon deal for this restaurant. The staff were brilliant and very friendly. The food was traditional and excellent, starters we had polenta with shrimps and they brought out warm freshly baked bread. Our main was pasta and fish with rosemary roasted potatoes.

We stayed at this hotel for 10 nights and wasn't very impressed. To begin with we was disappointed to find the hotel had no lift which was a nightmare especially as our room was on the top floor. The receptionist did offer to help us take our suitcases up stairs though. As we went up the stairs we noticed the... More

The restaurant used to have a good reputation but it now offers barely average food. The antipasto di pesce ( fish and sea food starter) a Venetian speciality comprised salmon from the Atlantic and smoked fish from a packet. I was not impressed.

The place was empty. To early for Italians to eat supper. The server/maitre was extremely friendly and accomodating. My plate of calves liver was very good. The seafood risotto was disappointing. We were offered complimentary soup which was good and some kind of iced desert, also good. We had a nice time, but the risotto was very over priced. Also... More

Our visit was marred by what appeared to be a blatant scam to substitute cheap table wine for expensive wine on the menu. Other reviewers have referred to this experience or ones like it. When we called the waiter on it he graciously replaced the scam substitute with a better wine, but we had to know to complain. It is... More

In itself it is a place with atmosphere and good food, but the service has a lot to wish for: somewhat rude and totally inflexible staff that served the courses literally instantly after each other, in their eagerness to turn over tables asap. Disappointing, because it hurts the experience a bit of otherwise nice dishes.

Having stumbled across what we thought of as a hidden gem only a few months ago (superb dinner in a cosy and friendly atmosphere with genuine, warm service), we decided to come back here for a special occasion - and wish we hadn't! The waiters were nothing short of rude and the maitre particularly incompetent, the food average, the price... More

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.
