Wow, reading other reviews, and so sad y'all didn't have the same experience we did. We love this place! We sat upstairs, our waiter was lovely and so attentive. Yes, a little pricey, but it's Venice. We tell all our friends traveling to Venice to stop and have a drink/cappuccino. The Murano chandelier/sconces are phenomenal. Can't wait to get back.

Awesome location with amazing bill to go along with it. If you never been ripped off now you will get to experience of getting shafted. Just walk a block or two or bring your own water bottle to the square. Avoid unless you got a money tree back home.

My wife and I spent our last hours at this cafe. It was a cold day too! So a warm drink was 'de rigeur!" The hot chocolate my wife had was great! It was thick and tasty! And warm! I went with the Lavena! It was cold but oh so good! We also had the Tiramisu, it was excellent! And a cheesecake, which was good but not great. The decor was beautiful! I advise to go to the second floor! The service was attentive but not intrusive! I even noticed that my waiter was a pro at photography! Any camera you give to him, he knew how to handle them! The downside (though not for me): the price. you pay for been at Saint-Marc's! But definitively a good experience!

Gelato is just sugar with very little flavor. Excellent location.

excellent coffee, pastries and fruit drinks. Absolute perfect location right on San Marco Square. Price is different based on standing up at the corner versus sitting down. Waters can appear pushy / rude about this, but they have to repeat this countless times from morning to night all the time to many people who don't even speak English or those who act like they don't, so they just get tired of it.

Very nice place. Really enjoyed the live music and the atmosphere. Though, €18 for a spritz and €11,5 for a coffee is a lot of money! The waiter got mad because we didn't leave him a huge tip..

Don't know about the food but perfect spot to have a cafe outside and watch the pigeons and people in the square.

High prices but a must in Venezia- great view on the dome - live music the typical atmosphere

Live classical music with an ensemble of 5 musicians, as well as modern adaptations and cinema themes 5m from your table!

Terrific service. Excellent wine and apps. Prime location to take in the atmosphere in San Marco square.

Proposed to my girlfriend here at night. The 5 piece live orchestra played a song just for us, waiter brought champagne and the St Marks Square gave us a standing ovation :-) Amazing - great staff!

Great atmosphere with live music and San Macro ... And you pay for it. But that is the case with all the places in San Macro and you know it going in.

Excellent location. Extra charge for live music is 6€ per person (except kids). The band is, however, continuously on break.

If U fall in love bcoz some1 makes U laugh, what happens when U no longer find them funny? If U fall in love bcoz some1 is beautiful, what happens when that beauty fades?

Presentation was great. Stuff was so polite and a very nice place. But the coffee was not correlated with these niceness.

Atmosphere was great with San Macro and music from the Lavena players ... And you pay for it.

Avoid being overcharged and have an espresso for 1,20€ standing at the bar inside!

... real love defies all reasons. When you truly love some1, U do not look 4 reasons, U c beyond reasons.

It is the best cafe in San Marco :)
