So many restaurants on this street to choose from but I would definitely recommend Leoncini. The restaurant itself is beautifully appointed and has lovely bright look about it. The staff were wonderful and really very friendly and helpful. As for the food it was excellent Venetian fare with excellent seafood especially the mixed fried fish. Also does an excellent pizza and was the best I tried during my stay. There was also a nice gesture of a glass of bellini before we started our meal. You hear so many stories about tourists being ripped off in Venice but Leoncini was in the heart of the tourist area yet it had excellent food, was reasonably priced and the staff were very friendly. What more could you ask for!

This restaurant is right in the corner of San Marco's Square so we assumed it would be extremely expensive. However, the prices for the food were fine Everywhere in Venice the wine is expensive and this is no exception but the service was good and we had a lovely meal. The tax is the usual 12 1/2%. We were given a free Limoncello at the end of our meal, which was a nice touch (we found this to be quite common in Venice). The service was OK, which is also what we found in other restaurants - the waiters do tend to concentrate more on getting you through the door than making sure you are happy when you are eating. Overall, we would recommend it - it was the best from the 8 restaurants we visited in Venice.

Good value and good food. Staff friendly It is located on a busy tourist street, but then all the streets in Venice are busy. Be prepared to sit in close location to others.

In the shadow of St. Mark's Basilica, this restaurant offers reasonably priced meals and a casually elegant ambiance. My wife's chicken salad was good but was made with "dark meat" that seemed to have been boiled. The vegetables were fine. My pizza Margherita was reasonable priced and cooked well. The house white wine was reasonably priced and appropriate to the meal. Service was good and this was a good experience.
