Wow! Sliced steak with rosemary melts in your mouth. Potatoes perfectly prepared and seasoned. Salmon and pasta not to be missed! Romantic ambiance dinner by candle light with red roses. Superb service. We will be back for another anniversary dinner.

During a recent trip to Venice we struggled to find good or even edible food. Nearly all the restaurants are catering for the unsuspecting tourist and are awful. We found this restaurant on our last night abs were very pleasantly surprised. Very good food, excellent service and lovely atmosphere. Only down side was that it was a little over priced.... More

This place is near S. Mark Sq. Recommend by our guide of the Tuscany country tour. The food is good and price is relatively low, 20 vs 25 for a main course.

We went to this restaurant as part of a gondola and candle lit dinner trip via BA Holidays and it was the last night of our honeymoon. While the Gondola trip was absolutely fine (although we could have booked it direct ourselves much cheaper) the restaurant was dreadful, from the staff to the atmosphere and the food was nothing to...

I went as a part of my Cosmos European tour. I remember a fantastic night with plenty of lovely wine and the dish i have remembered ever since was pasta with prawns. It was delicious! Really good atmosphere with good service.

After a long morning at St. Mark ( and if you do it right-you are tired!!) Perfect place for lunch. The calamari was over the top-any seafood dish is done with the traditional Italian flair of olive oil and herbs. The home made wine is better than any $50 plus bottle in the states. My female companion told me the... More

A good secluded place to taste real Italian food. Pros : + Quick to serve + Taste nice Cons : - Serving size is a bit small for Italian standard - Server is a bit stingy about the WiFi password

My wife and I were traveling with a group and had dinner here. The service was excellent despite the large (40) group and the food was hot and delicious. The lasagna, the beef medalions and especially the prawns with curry over risotto were excellent. Desserts were also very good

After having spent a few hours visiting the Basilica of San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale my wife and I were more than ready for a little sustenance. Not far from San Marco, on Calle Specchieri, we happened upon this 'ristorante'. We were enticed to try it in part due to the friendly restaurant staff. We dined in their attractive... 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.
