Gran Caffè Quadri
Gran Caffè Quadri is a historic spot in Piazza San Marco underneath the Procuratie Nuove that we like to visit on a cold winter afternoon, when there are no orchestras playing outside and no summer surcharges. Find a spot in one of the pastel frescoed rooms and order a signature spritz made with Barbaresco Chinato and tonic water that gets served in a hand-blown Murano glass. There’s also a great fine dining restaurant upstairs that serves a six-course tasting menu and is great for special occasions, and has an equally fantastic view of Piazza San Marco.
