The best tables at Canaletto are on the restaurant’s patio — table 27 seats eight people, while table 26 is a two-seater. Both tables offer the best views of the shows that perform during the day on St. Mark’s Square. Previously, every table on the patio had an unobstructed view of the shows in the center of the square, but the recent addition of an ice cream stand now forces many diners to crane their necks to see the action. So if you’re in the market for a little entertainment — and want to make your meal even more Venetian — we’d recommend trying to reserve either table 27 or table 26 at Canaletto. We think they’ll give you the most bang for your buck.
