Forget about these naysayers - this is a fabulous place right on St. Mark's Square overlooking all including the Doge's. Music is fantastic. Great cocktails, great food. Don't listen to these naysayers!! They probably had a smaller budget than is the norm in Venice!! Wonderful...More

I know you pay for the privilege of sitting in St. Marks square, with all the history and fantastic sights, but I am not sure whether it is worth 33 euros for a Hot chocolate and a caffe latte !!

I enjoyed my 2 flavors of gelato. I got Cherry and Venetian cream. Still have not figured out what Venetian cream reminds me of, but it was nice. The cherry was sweeter than fruity, but I think I liked it more that way. Not cherry...More

Nice cafe where you sit smack on the square itself. Beautiful views, waiters are fine. Of course the cost of a Latte goes up to $15 but one does pay for the privilege of the view.

The worst mojito I've ever tasted. Just a mount of ice for 16 euro. When I told them I did not like it, they replaced it, this time just water with lemon.

Terrible service.. very bad attitude! In particular the staff named Simone was extremely rude and unwelcoming! So appalled by this. Never coming here again!

What a great place to sit and get out of the rain. Area is beautiful and staff attentive. I had a Bloody Mary and it was made table side. Unique and it hit the spot. Music was very enjoyable.

We enjoyed lunch here, overlooking the Doge's Palace. Food (hot chicken and cheese sandwiches, gelato and tiramisu), coffee and Service were great. Very good music being played by a jazz trio too.
