Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing ciccetti (the best in Venice) and on the doorstep of ST MARKS SQUARE We forgot our lovely barman’s name but we know we know he loves pink floyd, speyside whiskey and some of the best drinks knowledge in all of Venice.!! If you want an authentic taste of Venice without being ripped off I suggest you stop in you will have a much better time at an affordable bill. Me and my partner come here every year and never disappoints! Caio ! GraZie!

We had originally planned to get coffees on piazza San Marco, but ended up taking a few extra steps and found this place - and we were delighted! We ended up going back every day of our trip (sometimes twice). In the mornings Cosima made us delicious espressos and we snacked on the cicheti she was making for the day (bread, meats, cheese, antipasto). We went back in the evening for cocktails and spritzers. We bumped into a few locals and got recommendations, made friends, and had a brilliant time. Very, very highly recommend!

I had asked for a recommendation for a bar to have an early evening drink in before going for our meal, and somebody had suggested Ai Do Leoni. The bar is in the left had corner of St. Marks square when facing the cathedral and is small and has a minimal number of places to sit. The place was busy, firstly because it is in St. Marks and secondly because it is the meeting place for fans of Venezia football club before home games (and after) and there was a game that evening. The result was that the clientele were an interesting mixture of locals and tourists. Despite the relaxed vibe among the staff service was really professional and the price of the drinks very good given the location. So a fun place to stop off for a drink before moving on with your evening activities (or a place to come back to after a meal), I will definitely return when I need a quick pitstop in Venice.

We had a wonderful experience here! All the food is made on site. The cicchetti were amazing! We had scallops which were perfect, as well as anchovy and salmon. We asked for a local drink and were treated to a spritz with the local version of Aperol called “Select”. We loved the flavor and the food and the talk with the bartender who used to live in LA but is back in his hometown of Venice. This place is not to be missed!

My friend and I had been going around France and Italy for a full week interrailing, cocktails every night and we would call ourselves cocktail enjoyers/critics. This was the best bar we had experienced in the entire week, and better than almost all in the uk. Highly recommend, lovely guys, mesmerising presentation and creation, and we were even given a free shot after giving a tip and telling them how much we enjoyed the experience. Not to mention it is in the most famous part of the city, and is a remarkably small bar, not too crowded and had great music, fab evening. 10/10

Please avoid if you are gluten free - a truly terrible pizza base. I ate less than a quarter and left the rest. The gluten free base was thick, stodgy and not cooked properly in the middle

Dear Customer, your experience refers to a neighboring establishment, not ours. We specialize in high-quality cicchetti and cocktails, not pizza. We are located adjacent to the venue you mentioned, sharing the same part of Piazza San Marco. We are sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience, but it was not at our establishment. We would appreciate it if you could consider removing the review. Best regards, Ai Do Leoni

It doesn't matter your origin, the staff here makes you feel right at home. The drinks are made with a love that you can see, feel, and taste. A thoughtful and hospitable drink menu coupled with upbeat music as the soundtrack to your experience makes this my favorite place to sip and chill. Thank you for making it hard to miss where I call home.

Very cute place right next to the Saint Marks square. We had some late night snacks and drinks. I had limoncello spritz and it was really good. Snack prices are around 3-4 € a piece and drinks were around 8€.

Ciao More, we are truly pleased to know that you took the time to share your experience and that you had a great time. (In Venetian, "Ciao More" means "Hi Luv" as a friendly and affectionate greeting.) Promise us that you'll come back and taste Venice by trying our Egiziano, a unique aperitif that we hope will leave you breathless. Promise? Warm regards, Ai Do Leoni

Was brought to this place by local friends and had the most wonderful campari-vermouth drink with a whopped egg-sugar foam on top. Their specialty. All accompanied with small chichetti snacks. It was so good that we returned later on that same day.

Amazing little cocktail bar right next to San Marco square with fantastic drinks. We asked for one of their signature cocktails and something custom as well. The two bartenders were more than happy to oblige and really delivered, both were delicious. It is a little pricier but the location and experience made it worth it.

Amazing spot in front of the lions in Saint Mark square, unique locating with beautiful decors inside taking you in a magic atmosphere! I love the place at first sight as you can tell immediately is not one of the bad tourist trap of Venice! Great music selections will follow the best experience to taste incredible wines selections and best cocktails ever made by the barmen in a spectacular way ! My fav to have is cosmopolitan by the sunset! Absolutely the place to be in Venice

We were visiting St Marks Square and we noticed a lot of expensive tourist traps. I found this cosy and reasonable priced bar on the fringes. I enjoyed a wine and they had a good selection of Cicchetti: Venetian-style Tapas.

Bar Ai do Leoni definitely is one of the best bars in Venice. It is my second time in Venice and I can’t wait to get back again to have another drink with Simone. This bar has an unique atmosphere! It is an indescribable feeling having amazing drinks/cocktails right in front of Basilica de San Marco. This bar has an international, nice and cool clientele which gives a feeling of “belonging”. You feel that you are having drinks with friends. Venice is full of fancy and expensive bars. This bar breaks this pattern and provides you a cozy and cheerful experience. The drinks are amazing! Simone has a special way to redesign the classic ones and to combine them with new ideas and sensations. I strongly recommend the Venetian Ice Tea. Simone, you are one of the best bartender I have met and I wish you the best of luck. We already miss you, your drinks and your laugh. Best, Vinicius and Anna

Fantastic drinks and bruschettas. Had a selection of bruschettas, one better than the other. The bacalao and the fig ones were particularly worth of praise. Had it all with the house special amaretto spritz! Highly recommend!

Angolo di autenticità veneziana nella piazza più bella del mondo. Cocktail ricercati, selezione di cicchetti tipici per tutti i gusti, e affaccio impagabile sulla bellezza di piazza San Marco. Tappa obbligatoria per chi visita questa splendida città.

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.
