After having visited another cafe round the corner which charged a surcharge for music (when we wanted to simply have coffee and cake), we found this Cafe right opposite Doge’s Palace. We were warmly welcomed by the friendly waiters, and once seated outside on the...More

Very nice ambiance and service. We just had drinks and it is extremely pricey. Had a very nice quartet playing beautiful music, that is what drew us in.

We decided to have a late evening meal in San Marco Square. Musicians playing, street vendors trying to sell small toys, roses or scarfs for the ladies. After awhile it gets old that the gypsies are trying to sell you their junk and the waiters...More

Extremely expensive, as you can see from the pictures below. Prices must include rent, as 7€ for a plain toast and 9€ for an americano is completely unacceptable!

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.
