The restaurant was amazingly quiet even though us close to Rialto. The staff was quite helpful and chatty - they found way to accommodate my sleepy 3 year old and charging my iPhone too! The food was generally good particularly the 'Venice typical food set menu'. Lasagne and tiramisù however not so great at all. That's a shame because had... More

Post New Year this place was very quiet, which can be a bad sign. But the food was actually very good. I had cuttlefish and polenta and my daughter had chicken and we shared grilled vegetables. Cost €55 with water and a Coke. Lots of waiters standing around and hating, so I hope they ended up with more customers.

After wandering around looking for food we settled on this restaurant because of its location near a crowded tourist area, but off a side street and it was constantly packed, as a new yorker I live by the rule that a packed restaurant is a good one. We were seated very quickly, there is an indoor and outdoor area. Our... More

Aquila Nera is shown as Aquila Negra on the sign outside. In any case, it means "Black Eagle." The food was very good. We chose the 20 euro fixed price menu, which has quite a variety. I opted for th lasagna with meat sauce, breaded chop, mixed salad and ice cream. My wife had the gnocchi with ragu, frito misto,... More

This Trattoria can be found in an alleyway straight opposite the foot of the Rialto bridge (San Marco side) across the square. We stumbled on it by chance on our first night, but returned on our last night because we decided it was our favourite during our 5 night trip. They have a decent menu with plenty of choice but...

Good italian food, next to the Rialto Bridge, therefore not so cheap. Liver with Polenta was really great.

So close to the Realto, you would think that it would be hard to find a good meal. However, we certainly enjoyed ourselves at the Black Eagle, down a lane near the nearby main square. We ordered a delicious grilled pork chop with divine crispy oven roasted potatoes and a Nero d'Avola wine. It's not pretentious and serves simple real... More

This Trattoria is in a small laneway off the main streets making it half the price of the ones on the main street. The wine is good and reasonable and the Pizza thin and very fresh. Worth finding it.

Good italian food in modest conditions. Carpaccio, pasta and cotoletta milanese are tasty, vino della casa is better than wine in Kempinski, lunch on the narrow lane is succesful. Why not?

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.
