Osteria Enoteca San Marco - Venice, Italy

Excellent food, great wine list and attentive service


Restaurant Category : , Italian, Wine Bar

Osteria Enoteca San Marco is located a few steps from Piazza San Marco, on a narrow street named Frezzeria. Originally an old inn, this restaurant in Venice was renovated and transformed into a restaurant and wine bar. This small but elegant Venetian restaurant constantly updates its menu according to the current season. Unless you are lucky or don’t mind waiting, reservations are a must at this contemporary restaurant.

The décor of Enoteca San Marco is modern, yet rustic with its plastered walls, dark wood floors and brickwork. The dimly lit wine bar is well appointed with wine chests on the floor and on the walls. Wooden tables and chairs are placed close together in the dining room. A number of cooking utensils hanging from the walls gives this restaurant a stylish yet warm feeling.

This restaurant was packed during our visit. My partner and I were lucky to get a table since we did not have any reservations. The menu at this Venice restaurant is quite extensive and tries to please every palate with choices of meat, fish, game, sea food and vegetables. We were given the menu the moment we were seated. We decided to share an order of black linguine with mussels and sweet peppers as our starter. This starter had great flavor and provided an excellent start for an enjoyable evening.

For main course, I ordered the beef fillet with Amarone sauce while my partner chose the stewed veal cheeks and peas. Both the dishes were rich and outstanding in their flavor. For dessert there were a number of options to choose from, such as tender chocolate cake, tiramisu, apple pie, Moscato and raisin ice-cream and ginger parfait. We opted for the apple pie with vanilla ice cream. Even though this dessert was more of a cake then a pie, it was still very delicious.

Enoteca San Marco has an excellent selection of wines by the glass. The wine list offers more than 300 labels, both national and international, to choose from. The service from the charming staff was attentive.

Overall, Enoteca San Marco offers superb food and top notch service in a casual yet upscale setting.
