San Marco, 4685 Calle dei Fabbri tel 041/5236651
Located 100m from St.Mark’s Square and is open all year from 9am to 1am. Guests can choose to sit in the air conditioned interior or take in the atmospheric streets from the outside terrace. Chef specializes in the rediscovery of “historical” dishes of Venetian cooking from the XIV century and after.
Campo Sant’Angelo, San Marco 3808/10
Relatively new (by Venetian standards) and very slick. Big portions but expensive. Service questionable.
Piazza San Marco
Founded in 1720. Expensive, but then Byron liked it. And the coffee was good, although the tea service was an elegant alternative. 18th Century paintings on the walls inside.
San Marco 252, Campo della Guerra
Tiny bar with a few tables outside. Snack on crostini and tramezzini with a wide range of wines. Lunch (The fixed-price menu is a bargain) and dinner are more substantial.
