We found this bar by chance and were very impressed with the quality of the wine for five Euros, and the extremely comfortable club chairs. The added bonus was a free bowl of potato chips.

You will find when you travel to Italy, the best gelato is further away from the tourist sites. This would be a good example. Gelato, luckily, is like pizza. Even a mediocre pizza, is pizza. Still tasty, but too expensive and forgettable.

This American Bar is a sandwich shop on the edge of St Marks square and we experienced good service, plenty of choice and all tasty, prices were very reasonable especially compared to other places nearby.

Rude staff, over-priced plus they place the meat sandwiches next to non-meat options, with the meat over-lapping to the meat ones, and only one veggie option kept away from the other sandwiches. All this before you eat the bland sandwich.

We search out gelato wherever we travel and this is the best in Venice by far. The chocolate and hazelnut gelato both had small pieces of hazelnuts which added to the flavor.

Had an amazing night here enjoying a few glasses of wine among friends. Everything about this place was good - the wine, the atmosphere and the amazing service by Ray the bartender. Thank you for a great night.
