Have been coming here for years whenever in a doubt about great dining options in Venice. The service is pure "amazing." The food exceptional and creative. The wines reasonable.

This restaurant is tucked away and looks very inviting from the outside. I loved all the decorative touches so opted to eat there. Was a little pricey if you like your food, like me, a lot to pay for a small dish. But quality over quantity every time and the food was delicious. They bring out nibbles and appetisers and... More

I ate here with my husband for an anniversary dinner. The location is excellent and very central near La Fenice theatre. The restaurant ambience and decor is really quaint and cool. We sat outside on a lovely table with white table cloth. The menu is very extensive. I had the steak tartare starter followed by the veal, both of which... More

We had excelllent food from the daily chefs specials a wonderful pasta dish with monkfish in small pieces and butternut squash also as a sauce. Delicious. Service was very offhand but efficient. Sat outside in lovely weather in a delightful square housing the opera La Fenice.

The restaurant is decked out in an older style with dark wood panels, stained glass windows and - somewhat tacky - gold painted chairs in one section. Service was excellent, friendly and swift. All service personnel seemed to be fluent in English. The main issue then, the food. I had a rather tasteless pasta dish followed by an excellent beef... More

Good place for an evening meal after the theatre or opera, located just outside the theatre. Good traditional venitian cuisine at reasonable prices, considering Venice is a prime tourist centre.

Hidden in a small square behind the Theatro La Fenice, it is off the path of the tourist crowds and provided a charming location for a relaxing al fresco lunch. There were plenty of choices on the lunch menu and there was also the regular menu and a special of the day. Prices were reasonable, the service friendly and efficient.... More

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.
