Our tour group dinner was at Ristorante Antico Pignolo, which I’d rate as 5 stars for the food. I had seafood & penne, veal & mushrooms, & tiramisu - delicious. I realize it may be more challenging to serve a large group but I took off one star due to the service being a bit brusque. My other negative was... More

Stuffed zucchini flowers, beef carpaccio as starters were really nice. A great white wine before starting our mains was perfect. We tried beef steak, lamb chops, duck and grilled fish and trying a little bit of all I have to say all was top quality, nicely served. Finished with a great selection of desserts. Altogether very nice, little pricy but... More

All I wanted was something to eat. What I got was an experience I'll not forget soon. The restaurant was right across the alley from my hotel. My uncle and I sat down and were greeted with open arms by the head waiter. He proceeded to actually choose what we should eat, and we followed his instructions to the letter.... More

RISTORANTE ANTICO PIGNOLO, CALLE SPECCHIERI 452, 30124 VENEZIA TEL; 0415228123 The Ristorante Antico Pignolo is decidedly for the wealthy or for a very special evening. It is expensive (allow £100 a head) but exquisite. It is located within a stone's throw of St. Mark's Square (which is not the only reason it is expensive) and themagazine Wine Spectator described the... More

Our group was booked into this restaurant by our tour guide, a little hard to find, but worth the effort. We had a great meal, attentive waiters and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

My first night in Venice and thought I would treat my fiancé and myself out to a nice dinner. the staff at the door were quite welcoming (disregarding the snide comment that was made). The food was very expensive which is understandable if it is of high quality but we were left very unimpressed as I have had much better... More

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.
