Magnificently served by pristine waiters in elegant surroundings but best in the summer when you can sit outside in San Marco listening to the music. A divine experience inside or out which is not about the cost as it's worth every euro for one of life's essential experiences.

This historic cafe (which, as I understand it, was among the first in Venice to allow women as patrons) is a real treat for atmosphere alone. The beautiful murals, the dainty furnishings, the waiters in white jackets all paint the experience with glamour of an era past. We had the famously rich hot chocolate and the club sandwich Florian, which... More

We had drinks and deserts here with friends who were all over for Venice carnival and although we weren't in costume of this occasion were still give a great seat in the main salon. The service in this place is extraordinary and actually by nice bar standards I really don't think it's that pricey, certainly no more than a drink... More

If you go to Venice you must visit this place for a coffee and cake/ ice cream. The service is impeccable and the decor is absolutely stunning. It's a very old establishment with oil paintings, Venetian mirrors, gold decor and it's all very traditional and wonderful. A must see stop for any visit to Marks Square.

Urgent Memo to Cafe Florian ! Have you ever married what Americans refer to as "high maintenance " ? Ahem. The lady of my house is known as The Real Miss Universe. I promised her a quick spin around Venice for Valentine's Day. Our gondola, which I purchased from Julius Caesar, sprang a leak in front of San Marco Square... More

Had liquid melted hot chocolate (to die for!) and delicious macaroons here. My husband had tiramisu and coffee, all served on a silver platter by a very courteous server. The setting is stunning: velvet seats, marble table tops, golden ceiling carvings, large mirrors and beautiful paintings make you feel like you're a member of Venetian aristocracy, if only for a...

Very classy establishment and well worth the price for the experience. Beautiful surroundings but don't expect big portions or attentive service tend to be a bit offhand but for a one of well worth it.

Expensive, but worth every penny for the silver service, the ambiance and the pure luxury. Went during Carnivale so had the added bonus of many of the patrons sat in fabulous costumes!

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.
