Even though it was a bit hard to find, it became our regular 'hang out" place for lunch and dinner during our 10-day stay in Venice. Food, service and ambience were impeccable. A place was perfect for large parties and intimate couple dinners! We would definitely come again when in Venice.

We visited Alla Scala on our first evening visit to Venice and the 4 of us were pleasantly surprised by the good service, excellent food and value for money. We all chose the set menu and the house wine. I am always apprehensive in larger Italian cities that you may be 'ripped off' this was not the case here.

The restaurant looked very inviting and has a nice ambiance. A basket of bread was " offered" well one has to pay for cutlery and bread the bread was rock hard and it was so dry that is was like uncooked semolina in your mouth. We ordered differently cooked Dover Sole, the fish was good, but the vegetables did not... More

Had a delightful evening meal here. Very smart inside but still felt warm and welcoming. Host is very friendly, as were the staff and whilst everything felt very relaxed, service was excellent. Was given a glass of proscecco and some tomatoe bruchettes on the house before our meal and at the end of the meal a small plate of petit... More

They gave complimentary bruschetta, and good prices too. Most places in the same area were a lot more expensive. The restaurant has a great feel and the staff were very polite and even helped me with some questions on transport etc. They have good Italian food along with authentic Venetian items too. Will definitely visit again.

Came here after looking on Trip Advisor for a lovely traditional place for an Italian meal... we were not disappointed! We had ravioli and lasagne (both were amazing!!) We weren't sure what wine to have and our server recommended one for us, around 85 euros for 2 courses and a bottle of wine and water... reasonable and really tasty. Nice... More

This restaurant was recommended by the receptionist at our hotel and what a recommendation. We were met at the door by Mr Salvatore, the owner, and seated with a free glass of prosecco. The food was fantastic and so was the atmosphere. We had live music and an impromptu song from one of the diners. Would definitely recommend to anyone... More

They surely know how to welcome people, the food is good and the atmosphere is magic, the plus for us was the live music, two Italian singers. Gold value for the money as well, three course meal with free apetizer and free end of the meal Venetian sweeties. Go for it, you want regret!

In 1953, just after few years from the ending of the world war II, Lino Pierazzo decided he was going to open a restaurant in the heart of Venice, between S.Marco square and Rialto bridge; starting with just his wife as a cook, he succeeded in making it one of the most popular restaurant of Venice. About fifty years later, his son and daughter keep on his work with a modern group of waiters and cooks.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
