This was our first dinner in Venice - and one of the two best! We ate outside which was very enjoyable. My husband had the zucchini flowers and the duck and he loved both. I had the beef tartare and the beef fillet - the tartare was tender and flavorful and the fillet was done to perfection. Our wine was... More

Our 17th day in Italy, and this was our favorite. Great service...great food. Be prepared to rattle your wallet, but well worth it. Of course, we ordered a very expensive bottle of champagne, which didn't help. Our starter was the fried zucchini...only problem was I wanted a double order...very good. Wife had the sea bass...can't go wrong there. Waiter suggested... More

Popped in for Lunch, saw the menu and immediately booked for dinner that evening. Lunch was excellent, dinner exquisite. We ate off the 'Historical' menu, all the dishes were beautifully presented and tasted fabulous. There is a most extensive wine list, and we found a wine that complement our meal perfectly, without breaking the bank. We ate outside at lunchtime,... More

We recently visited Venice to celebrate our mother's 80th birthday and had dinner at Bistrot de Venise. We were recommended to it by a Fodor's Forum contributor and were not disappointed. We got a little lost trying to find the restaurant, but that goes with the City experience! They had noted the birthday element to the booking and made a... More

Staying at the hotel next door we had to wade through the crowded tables of Bistrot every evening to get to our entrance. It may be difficult to find, for some, but part of the fun of touring Venice is discovery--places like this. The lead server attended to all the tables paying special attention to describe wines of the region... More

Outstanding food and wine selection. Quite and relaxing. Get away from the crazy, wet crowds of Marco Polo Square.

This was a restaurant located very close to our accommodation and we simply stumbled across it. We looked up the reviews and saw that it had an excellent reputation. There were no tables free the first night so we booked for the following night. The service is a highlight. All of the staff were friendly and efficient. The waiters all... More

Offering traditional and historical Venetian cuisine with recipes curated throughout the centuries. Good attentive service, tasty food, and extensive wine list. The fiori di zucca was creatively presented. The scampi carbonara and the spaghetti nero were tasty.

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.
