“Ah Gino (and staff) - perfetto!!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Being in a busy tourist city can occasionally being a trifle lonesome - but there is no chance of that if Bar de Gino is your local coffee shop and bar. From 6.30 am to 7pm, Gino and the wonderful staff - who remember your likes and dislikes - the capuccino first and later Americano, and what is your choice of beer or wine later in the day - are always welcoming. I liked the early morning when the regulars and Gin and staff (family?) chaffed each other, or a pastry was cut in half for the kids on their way to school; laterin the day there were the card players in the corner, and the ladies coming back with their shopping. And the warm and incredibly tasty pastries in the morning - or the extraordinarily fresh and well-filled sandwiches - and the coffee - not just good but REALLY good coffee. Yep - this was great and memorable place (and great value)

“Great find.”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

After searching for somewhere for a coffee and a sit down after pounding the streets of Venice in the rain, this place was a welcome oasis. With most places charging upwards of €5 for a coffee, to see a cafe charging a more reasonable €2.50 for an excellent caffe latte was a refreshing change.

One thing I will say though is don't go in if you're wearing an AC Milan shirt. Judging by the Inter memorabilia on the walls, you may get a bit of teasing from the staff!

“Restaurant close to the Santa Lucia station”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Nice bar and restaurant close to the railway station, decorated with historical ads. Very nice staff with the owner always working here. Can recommend especially very good pasta.

“Excellent Coffee”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

We recently stayed in Venice for a fortnight, and this was our daily breakfast destination. The coffee was really excellent, the best we had in the city. The staff are charming and helpful, and by the time we left, were happily providing our breakfast coffees and pastries without our even asking! We also dropped by in the early evening for a spritz or two. It is well situated very close to the Accademia and there is nothing more pleasant than sitting outside watching the world go by.

“Great place”
Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Me and the wife stopped here for some rest and it was a really charming little cafe/bar.

I had a latte and my wife had the thickest, richest cup o' hot chocolate I've ever seen!
It was basically a liquified brownie.

Great place if you wanna sit and watch some people!
