The cafe is located at the heart of Plaza San Marco surrounded by many tourists. Live band performance was lovely. However service and drinks were only so-so and not worth for that much money.

Live music, great view, fun people watching and extremely expensive prices. A bottle of water is €10! My tiny espresso €11 but what do you expect in this area of Venice. It was worth it to be able to sit and relax & soak in...More

Great location and good food. But had to deal with a non-communicative, unfriendly host who had a permanent scowl on his face and whose service we had to actively seek (from getting the menu & placing orders to getting the check).

A very Good Cafe that comes with white jacketed waiters and prices to match. Great service, great food, and one of the best places to people watch with the square on one side, water on the other, and the Doges Palace in front!

While this place may not have the best food (stay away from the Lemon Pie) - we enjoyed some wine (both white and red) while taking time to relax and enjoy the scenery. A great place to take a rest amidst the hustle and bustle,...More

Did not have an enjoyable experience here. Found the waiters to be rude to customers. They told people to move from a seating area where no-one else was sat . This whole section wasn't even set for meals.

I wish we had read the reviews before we came here 😞. The view is fantastic, right by the canal and great for letting the day go by... Unfortunately that's where it ends- incredibly rude, poor service and even though it states on their menu...More
