Overall rating: 1 out of 5 stars
This place was complete and utter trash — my disabled girlfriend and I came to Italy for medical tourism for her disability and when she tried to sit down because she can’t walk no less than five waiters accosted us saying we needed to pay 15 more euro to sit down because they are scam artists trying to fleece tourist dollars from international visitors. Don’t be fooled by the looks of the place, most of the people who work here look like mafioso and are total jerks. They threatened to fight our guide just because he said that my girlfriend was disabled and needed to sit for five minutes. It ruined our trip to Venice. Totally trash. It was 21 Euro for a coke and two mixed drinks (overpriced) — and then we were verbally assaulted by all of the waitstaff. They are not freidnly, they are not accommodating, and they are a blemish on an otherwise beautiful city. The place needs to be shut down or at least have police control check that their books and working contracts are right because they all acted like thugs — if this would have happened in the United States they would have been arrested for threatening violence against my girlfriend, myself and our guide. Avoid this place at all costs. Tell your friends to stay away from here if you read that this place is worth going to. It definitely is not, and when you look from afar you will see that all of the waiters look like thugs. Our entire trip to Italy was amazing except for going to this place— I was very wary of Italy at first and started to warm up to the country but this put a very sour taste in my mouth — stay away from here at all costs— They charge one price for standing, and fifteen more euro to sit down in their cramped and chinsey bar — the decorations look awful, the drinks are watered down and the entire place is designed to take money from tourists. I’ve been around the world and never once have I been treated like this in another country— it was quite remarkable to watch these thugs escalate what was a simple request into threats of physical violence. If you do anything in your trip to Italy, go spit on their floor and leave a trashy review. If I could do anything other than leaving a poor review I would. But this is all I have— my girlfriend constantly has to deal with people not understanding her disability (constant pain caused from an injury), and this was really an astonishingly bad way to deal with a paying customer. These people are trash and need to be shut down. If I could leave a more negative review I would, however it requires me to leave at least one star. They don’t even deserve that. They deserve to be shut down and fined for discriminating against a disabled person and putting us in danger of physical harm

I am giving one star because we cannot rate negative star. The waiter was plain and simple rude and racist. Not a place to visit if you don't want to ruin your visit one of most beautiful squares in Europe. Please avoid it like a plague.

Beautiful silver platters, a perfectly pulled espresso shot and the softest foam in Venice. The gentleman who served me was sweet and attentive. I suggest eating inside and watching the locals stand at the bar, having their Campari and organe before they go back to work.

One of the workers here tried to acuse my mother and I of trying to steal a lemon. He was extremely condescending and rude, talking to us like we were children. He even went so far as to raise his voice at us, yelling at us to leave when we inquired, which much frustration, if the fruit was for purchase (we wanted to buy something to use the bathroom). Why on earth would I pay all this money to go to Italy and then steal a fruit that's available for chump change in America? Worst customer service ever. His coworkers didn't even try to correct his atrocious behavior. Do not waste your time here. There's other cafes nearby that aren't staffed by a**holes.

Scam! Don't stop at this cafe. The menu said one price, and the bill was different (3x the price!). Adverage food, poor beer selection, terrible service.

Great view and great music❤️🎵❤️ we loved enjoying our coffee, while people watching at this location, The music is excellent and the staff very friendly.

photo Tip by Julie Desbuquois on Thursday the 21 of September, 2017 at 3:45 pm
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.

photo Tip by Sami Saarenketo on Friday the 12 of July, 2013 at 5:29 pm
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.
