A restaurant that positively thrives on customer service. Expertise at every level from the sommelier if you need advice to full descriptions of the food and it's origin. The first dining room is the busiest with the bar and entrance and the quieter tables are further back. We were very impressed with David who looked after our table. Nothing was... More

We went there to celebrate my husband's birthday. Table was reserved through email communication a week in advance and they replied my email and confirmed my reservation promptly. We had the 3-course set but the portion of each dish was quite big! Love the steak tartare with complicated taste! A bit disappointed by the duck main course. It was dry... More

Most of the reviews are spot-on in terms of the good food, pretty decor, great wine list, etc. However the service really was memorable: older gentleman basically ordered us around, in the nicest possible way. "No rabbit! You have duck!" "Have this wine, I tell you". It was very amusing and clearly he liked his job, and liked having fun... More

We enjoyed a lovely meal here , but the outstanding part was being looked after by Walter.. This was our last night of a 4 night visit to Venice & we had experienced 'varied' service & food quality . Walter was obviously a very experienced waiter who 'worked' our part of the restaurant admirably, making everyone feel welcome , in... More

The food here was excellent and the atmosphere very pleasant and based on these alone the score would be higher.However the costs quoted on the menu are before service and then separately tax,so the final bill is almost 25% higher.Now this is mentioned but it is not clear as a combined sum and this is before tip.It is a pity...

Well, what can I say? WOW pretty much covers it! We had the most incredible meal here on our final night in Venice (Friday). We managed to reserve a table on the same night for 9.15pm - from the moment we walked in we knew it was going to be special. Our waiter was the loveliest person we met in... More

We booked a dinner at this restaurant the night before we wanted to go. I must say the best thing about this restaurant was its service. It was remarkable; very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive staff. The food was great as well. We ordered a primi and a secondi each as well as a bottle of wine. They also included a... 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.
