I have been to this restaurant twice, mainly for the service and the drinks. DRINKS: The first time I went we had Bellini's and were given shots at the end of our meal on the house. Both drinks were delicious and refreshing, and the Bellini's were reasonably priced. The second time I came back was because the original waiter I... More

We should have know better when we sat down and heard nothing but English being spoken. The meal was good but the service felt rushed.

We have been to venice 8 times and always visit this restaurant at least once. Situated just off St Marks square it is conveniently placed and the food is great. We were welcomed back with a free Belini which was a nice touch. I couldnt believe that with the hundreds of diners they must see Michael the waiter remembered us.... More

Great location near San Marco, nice place, fast and friendly service. Just perfect, except the food was terrible. Lasagne delivered to table three minutes after ordering, straight from the microwave, cold on the inside. Looked terrible as well. Pizza came later, low quality and no taste. Place has great potential, get a new chef.

Let me start by saying this only the 2nd or 3rd bad review I have ever written for any place.... Trattoria ai Leoncini will lure you in off the street in the very crowded tourist area of San Marco. You will be served stale bread and informed a 12% service charge will be added to your bill (which in my... More

After spending several days in Venice, my wife and I decided to try this restaurant for dinner. We were seated at a table for two, and after the customer beside us had finished his meal we were told to move to his table in order for the restaurant to accommodate a larger group. This new table was small and cramped... More

Just round the corner from St Marks Square, so expected it to be pricey, but also expected it to be decent quality. Unfortunately the food was not good, was not cooked or was left to get cold. Not impressed. Would not recommend.

I ate here on the Saturday night of a two night visit to Venice. The restaurant was very busy but they found me a table for one towards the rear which had a view of the kitchen. It was nice to watch the chef work and prepare all the food. I had the coquilles Saint jacques for a starter. Really... 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.
