The only fine-dining restaurant located in Piazza San Marco, Ristorante Quadri boasts one of the Venice's most incredible views. The Alajmo family took over the restaurant in early 2011, bringing the spirit and service of Le Calandre to the lagoon. The cuisine of Quadri is a contemporary expression of Italian and Venetian classics. The menu, created by Max Alajmo and carried out by executive chef Silvio Giavedoni, highlights ingredients sourced directly from the Venetian lagoon, primarily fish that arrives daily from the Rialto market. The atmosphere in the dining room is elegant, yet relaxed, allowing guests to enjoy the allure of the most beautiful squares in the world.
