They surely know how to welcome people, the food is good and the atmosphere is magic, the plus for us was the live music, two Italian singers. Gold value for the money as well, three course meal with free apetizer and free end of the meal Venetian sweeties. Go for it, you want regret!

Our Airbnb apartment is just up the stairs from this place so we thought we'd give it a try on our first night here. Lovely welcoming service but dated restaurant. We had wine for two, two pastas & two sides for €80. The food was ok but we've had better. Looking for something fresher the rest of our stay.

Far better than expected with the fixed price menu at €23.50pp, the seafood spaghetti and mixed seafood platter were our favourites. Yes the decor is a bit 1980's, and to be honest I suspect some of the waiting staff may be from the same era! but they were really jolly and attentive. Lots of locals was a good sign. Would... More

On our visit to the marvelous Bisanzio Glass Factory on Murano, our host, Luigi, recommended Salvatore's Trattoria alla Scala. We found the place, in between Piazza San Marco and Rialto Bridge, where we are staying. Salvatore greeted us like family and presented us with a complimentary Bellini a mixture of Prosecco sparkling wine and peach purée, a cocktail that originated... More

Went here on our last night in Venice having read the reviews. Couldn't fault the food other than it was a little pricey compared to other nights in equally nice restaurants, it lacked a bit of atmosphere, but that said it was a Sunday night as Venice is entering the quieter season.

It was wonderful to go to the San Marco Plaza and see all the vendors and shops. It was crowded even in Oct. but it was well worth seeing. Had to buy boots as there was a bit of flooding.

If you are in Venice you have to do yourself a favour and go there. The food is awesome, the service is superlative and the ambience (because of the people who work here) is even better. We loved our meal there were tons of options and we loved all of our meals. We finished our dinner with Crepe Suzette which... More

This restaurant was difficult to find as it is tucked away in a little back street courtyard. I have been back every time I return to Venice purely because of the delicious food I get everytime. They have a reall good menu and their food is fresh and yummy. The staff are pleasant and accommodating too so always a pleasure... More

I had ravioli stuffed with spinach in a saucepan with pistachios and walnuts. It was amazing. I heard from a friend that the tiramisu is the best she's had. Price seemed reasonable to me. You'll be glad you went there for dinner.

In 1953, just after few years from the ending of the world war II, Lino Pierazzo decided he was going to open a restaurant in the heart of Venice, between S.Marco square and Rialto bridge; starting with just his wife as a cook, he succeeded in making it one of the most popular restaurant of Venice. About fifty years later, his son and daughter keep on his work with a modern group of waiters and cooks.

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.
