Venice is an expensive destination. It's a challenge not to spend so much on food in the city. Sit down meals near attractions like Piazza San Marco could go at least €50 euros per person for a plate of pasta and water. This is because restaurants near attractions collect a cover charge in addition to the service charge (which is... More

After walking up and down deciding where to eat on our first evening in Venice we decided on the Ristorante Ai Leoncini having looked at the menu and thought the selection and prices reasonable given the location. We were greeted by a very enthusiastic waiter who showed us to our table and we were given plenty of time to decide... More

Service was splendid, and the Caesar salad with prosciutto and fresh dressing a meal in itself. My alfredo fettucini with chicken and wild mushroom sauce just perfect. My partner's spaggeti "fruits de mare", was so filled with shrimp, clams, mussels, and a giant prawns that it took a big side dish just to hold the shells. Wine selection reasonably priced,... More

Enticed in by the offer of free drinks, had a lovely meal. Waiters were very friendly. The food was fine, it wasn't partcularly exceptional, but it was perfectly enjoyable. We had a lovely time, there was no pressure to leave. And they were true to their word about free drinks!

We sat outside across from another eatery, Im glad we chose this one. The service was wonderful, we had a nice bottle of wine, served bread and the best pasta in Venice. Believe me, we had a lot of pasta. I had the Ravioli and it was perfect. I will go straight back here on my return visit.

Our tour guide told us this is the best place for seafood so we decided to try it out. They were extremely busy and service was good. There was a lot of food choices on the menu so we decided to try spit the seafood sample platter - a little bit of everything and it was very good. Worth a... More

Quaint place down a street of off St Mark's square. I had the shrimp scampi which was extremely fresh and flavorful. My wife said her fried shrimp was one of the best ones ever. Service friendly and a wide selection in the menu.

We happened to find this restaurant on the first night of our stay, how lucky were we. We were greeted by friendly staff, eager to find us the best table in the house. The Bellini's were to die for and not over priced as they were in other restaurant's, only 6 Euro's compared with 18 to 24 Euro's in other... More

We were assured by Slavic that the pasta was good so we decided to try it out. We sat outside as people walked by in the little lane not far from St Marks Square. Very happy with caprese salad, calamari and spinach and ricotta ravioli with sage butter. All fresh and tasty. We thought prices were reasonable for what we... 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.
