This American Bar is a sandwich shop on the edge of St Marks square and we experienced good service, plenty of choice and all tasty, prices were very reasonable especially compared to other places nearby.

Rude staff, over-priced plus they place the meat sandwiches next to non-meat options, with the meat over-lapping to the meat ones, and only one veggie option kept away from the other sandwiches. All this before you eat the bland sandwich.

Had an amazing night here enjoying a few glasses of wine among friends. Everything about this place was good - the wine, the atmosphere and the amazing service by Ray the bartender. Thank you for a great night.

Since this place is right on the plaza you can expect to pay a little higher prices, but €7 for a beer served in a plastic cup seems about right. Wife was shopping and I stopped in to get away from the madness. Waiters did...More

The ice cream is good, but you'll have to endure the service in order to get it. I highly suggest you continue on and find other pastry and sandwich shops, they ate all around San Marco.

We had gelato twice a day during 9 days in Italy, and the gelato they sell out the side window was the best we had in Venice. We went twice in the short time we were in Venice
