All I can say is bad taste, rude waiter and high price. The waiter that looks like he’s from Indian is very rude to us. He gave us the receipt and tried to make us pay, while we haven’t even finish our drinks and desserts. It’s seem like he wanted to chase us away to get more table for another customer.

What a great way to start the day. I had a light breakfast and 2 Espressos while waiting to join a tour of St Marks. The waiter was extremely polite and quite friendly and even allowed me to take a photo of him. The food was very tasty. Will return when in Venice again.

When in or near Piazza San Marco, this is THE place to take a break. At the base of the Bell Tower, right across from the steel statues that ring the bell, down from the four horses (replacements) that sit atop the basilica, IN St Marks Square ... perfect location. Goes with the visit ... nice to be able to use the upstairs restroom. Drinks are very good (especially cappuccino & chianti) & snacks are good. Yes ... the place is a tad pricey but better than most in Piazza San Marco. The gentlemen who wait on the table are, for the most part, very friendly and courteous ... especially considering how some of their customers treat them. Ahmed, our waiter, was very good ... friendly, courteous and efficient!

Clearly a cost for being in the square.
Very nice place to sit and view the square.
Do not eat /bring lunches in to square. €100 fine for picnics.

I have been to this cafe 5 times over the years. When we go to Venice it has become THE cafe we go to for our drink in St Mark's Square. Excellent location. On this occasion though we had an unpleasant incident with a waiter who was agressively guarding the toilet and insisting we showed "a ticket" before we could go upstairs to the loo. We were not aware we had a ticket and having spent over £30 on 4 drinks thought it highly inappropriate to be refused access basically. When we did eventually make it up there, there was 1 male and 1 female toilet, both of which were dark, uninviting and smelly.

Next time we are in Venice we will NOT be visiting this cafe. Why would we after this experience. There are so many other excellent ones to choose one in the vicinity.
