Impeccable service and food. One of the best meals I've had in Venice. Atmosphere chic but warm and wait staff beyond friendly. Highly recommend!

We arrived in Venice late after being stuck at the airport in the snow. The hotel recommended Caffè Centrale as it was close and open late. Service was good, but the portions quite small. The dessert of hot meringue and custard was delightful. Usual city prices but a nice place for a late dinner.

I knew I would be arriving in Venice late and was looking for a great restaurant to get a late night meal. I found Caffe Centrale on Trip advisor and was excited about the stellar reviews. At about 10pm, I called to confirm that the restaurant closed at 1 a.m. and inquired about the last seating. The hostess confirmed over... More

Dear Guest, we apologize, but we disagree in the most absolutely manner from your review, this is not our style, this is not our standard, this is not our way to treat our guests. We never have thrown away our guests in years from the restaurant. We are known in Venice as a place opened until late near San Marco,... More

We had to have a coffee and some cake after a wonderful gondola ride. We stopped at the restaurant and were seated by a very friendly waiter. She took our order and suggested something sweet as we were after a sweet treat at the time. The coffee and cake was very good and we did not wait ourselves to boredom... More

We arrived in Venice late and everything was closing. The Café Central its open until late. We had some expectations about the place since it has some very captivating décor. It seemed a very expensive restaurant but with very good food. The experience didn’t went very well. The service took a lot of time. And the food was common and... More

There are lots of nice restaurants within 10 minutes of St Marks but the best ones usually involve a little extra effort to find them. Caffe Centrale is at the top of the list and the choice of food and wine fused with the quality of service were extra special. A fantastic start to our 4 days in Venice and... More

Magnificent view, incredible food and extremely good service! We had pasta with shrimps (one of the greatest I have ever had) and beef fillet (excelent, as well!). The... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood 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.
