Good Food, Great Prices, No Atmosphere

Actually the basic Italian fare here was really quite good, and you cannot beat the prices anywhere - a full dinner and Coke cost 12 euros. Good variety also - fast and friendly folks. But it is in a plain little shop with nothing to it. The owners appear to be new parents, so they were also taking... read more

This place is best for a snack and a drink of beer. I don't recommend you eat here. The food was very so-so, and they didn't offer amenities like bread. My pasta was dripping with oil and not very tasty.

Upon returning to the Courtyard Marriott after a long day in Venice we were told that their restaurant was closed on Sunday and did not open until 7:00 pm on the other days. Hum, that left us with nothing to eat in the middle of nowhere. The front desk recommend la Sosta and said they had great pizza, off we... More

This restaurant is close to the Courtyard by marriott near the Airport in Venice so we walked to it. Very good food, reasonably priced, easy to communicate with them - would eat there again.

This simple unpretentious roadside café is 20 minutes walk from hectic & overcrowded Venice airport. The menu includes the standard Italian pasta, pizza and meat dishes. The food and wine were perfectly decent, and served with friendly charm. Free wifi available.

We were looking for a meal before 7pm in Italy, that makes it tough on a good day. Fortunately we stumbled onto La Sosta. Reasonably priced food in the late afternoon with excellent service.

As soon as you walk in you notice that the clients are locals and this is the THE place for morning coffee and brioche. Decor does not strain to appeal to tourists and is very low key. Prices are low. Lunch was good and again very reasonably priced. Huge Insalata cocoode would have been a meal in itself but a... More

Stopped here because it was the only place open for lunch on a Saturday. Prices are very reasonable ( €5-8 for pasta), and food was some of the better food we'd all had on our Rome-Florence-Venice trip! Was very surprised. Atmosphere is more like a sandwich shop, but there is still table service.

It was dark and raining and late so we didn't want to walk far. About 5 mins. from our hotel we found La Sosta and had a casual, light meal which was promptly served. Very reasonably priced and just what we wanted after a long day.
