A true Venetian fine dining experience. The menu has all the local dishes - but a fancy version. Very romantic side street. Professional service. A little pricey but worth the food/experience!

We were recommended this place as a place to go for our anniversary and were not disappointed! It was easy to book a table online, I had a reply to my email within minutes. The restaurant has a warm cozy feel for a fine dining establishment. There was a good choice and there were vegan and vegetarian options on the... More

One of the most delightful meals I have enjoyed in a long time! My tip would be to choose from the "Historical Menu". Definitely a place to savour. The knowledge and attentiveness of the sommelier and the maitre d were of a standard which seems increasingly rare these days. Not s budget establishment by any means, but well worth the... More

Our experience here was our favorite part in Venice! The wait staff was extremely attentive and welcoming, we made a reservation and had to change it due to our excursions timing running late and they were accommodating and made sure to reschedule us for the next day. It was my husband and me, we were sat at a table outside... More

Picked the restaurant because it was convenient to our hotel Bonvecchiati Palace. Ate outside which was ok but it's really an alley. Had a risotto to start which was excellent but followed that with the sea bass which was bland and virtually cold.This was our 5th visit to Venice but it will be our last.Almost impossible to move in the...

We decided to check out this restaurant I had seen on a site of Venice, reidsitaly.com. I had read his take on Rome & Florence and he was spot on, so thought we should take his advice. We had a full day of sight seeing and walking all around most attractions and were on the verge of going home as... More

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

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.
