The Osteria Enoteca San Marco is a welcome relief from the touristy venues in Venice. The atmosphere is cosy and romantic (evidenced by the fact that the majority of people in the restaurant were couples), while the food was of a high quality and innovative.

The starter of a tart of Aubergine and Gorgonzola was excellent while my companions also really enjoyed their first course. I then had the somewhat traditional fegato alla veneziana, which was outstanding while my wife chose the fried fish which turned out to be a very large portion of a variety of sea food with thinly cut fried vegetates, again very tasty.

As you would expect from an Enoteca the choice of wine was very good and served by a knowledgeable staff who clearly understood the advisable combinations for each course, the prices also seemed competitive considering the quality of some of the choices.

All finished off with a good desert (again matched with an appropriate wine). The Enoteca San Marco is not cheap, it was by far the most expensive meal we had in Venice, but it was also the best, for once a case of you get what you pay for.

All in all: great food, a lovely location (especially for romantic couples on that final night in Venice) with high quality service.

As a final note I cannot understand the previous complaint about the restaurant only holding reservations for 10 minutes, this was pointed out to me when I made my reservation and given the number of “no shows” you are likely to have in somewhere like Venice I am not surprised they inform you of this practice, but it was done very professionally and courteously.

We had an enjoyable meal here on a recent trip to Venice. Nice room: exposed brick with wine racks lining the walls and good lighting make for a nice ambiance. It's more modern in feel than many Venetian restaurants with food to match. All of it well executed and well served.

We shared a caprese salad for a starter. But the highlights were pesto pasta with mussles and a mixed seafood fried in a tempura batter. This last dish was so outstanding we are still talking about it. The chocolate cake with gelato for dessert was particularly good but came with some tart berries we couldn't eat. The best thing was they seemed to serve straight through since we didn't finish lunch until 4 PM and they were still serving other patrons.

We had an wonderful experience at this resturant. We were a group of 4 and the waiters spoke English . He gave us several meal and wine suggestions. One person in our party had cuttlefish and she said it was the best she had ever had. Excelent Meal, Excelent Wine, Excelent Experience. Everyone was very freindly and the place was very clean.

Very nice restaurant, close to the Piazza San Marco.
Followimg Venezia's way, the restaurant is small and great. And we could met the owner working hard there.
Wonderfull meal (taste and presentation), we where lucky to chose as an Antipasti, the Procciutto crudo con melone. We did try this entry in many other restaurants in Italy, but this obe was the best. It came over a plate mande of stone and very well served.
Any pasta or meat at the menu is aldo great. Ask a Veneto Amarone or Negro amaro wine to go with your meal.
