Had dinner here one night while visiting Venice, we loved this place, food was amazing, best lamb shank I've ever had. Great funky décor, lovely staff etc but the food here is the real star. Loved it

We went to Caffe Centrale after a show at La Fenice. Caffe Centrale stays opened quite late, which is very convenient. Service and atmosphere were lovely. The food was very nice too. Highlight was an outstanding Spritz, with lemon foam. Wonderful!

Had a great evening here. Would highly recommend!!!!! Had an experienced waiter, some gorgeous wine and two main and two desserts with an amuse bouchée, with a silky bottle of wine for €170. They did forget it was my wife's birthday but I forgive them as the decor was perfect for the evening, beautiful candles and perfectly laid cutlery. It's... More

We stopped here for a coffee and a beer, it's located on the Canal side by the Rialto bridge and alongside another two restaurants and they were all vying for trade and this involved one of the waiters singing to passers-by some of whom didn't quite appreciate his dulcet tones!! I found the latte okay and to be able to... More

Our Host was amazing, he treated us as family coming home to celebrate. Drinks were divine, the food was tasty and well proportioned and the atmosphere delightful. An absolute must in Venice...

We visited one evening very early in March and the restaurant was very quiet. The decor was top class and some has had a few great ideas to make it look so attractive yet retain a nice relaxed ambience. The food quality is unquestionably very good but in my view over complicated by over enthusiastic methods in preparation i.e. Dishes... More

We arrived here having just left a marvelous performance at the opera and were very hungry after experiencing the moving tragic death of the heroine! Everything about the restaurant was lovely. The welcome was warm even though we hadnt booked.The decor is modern with some wonderful local twists like the Murano glass chandelier. The food was sublime. The Wine List... More

Dear guest, I'm the owner of Caffè Centrale and first of all I would like to thank you for your useless and expected review. Let me say I totally disagree with your behaviour, unfortunately for you I was present the night you dined at my restaurant and I'm sure that your reservation was written in our book, therefore, a table...

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.
