It was suspicious that nobody wrote anything for long time but i went to check it cause its my kind of place. Turned out to be closed and there is a new place open called LINO FRITTO, serving food similiar style but its more finger food then proper dishes. It was quiet nice, you can see my other review.

Good evening! You are correct, the place doesn't exist anymore. We are sorry but we are having some problems to close this page. About me, chef Umberto.. I opened few weeks ago a new restaurant called osteria trefanti still in Venice, we wait you in the new location (you can see the page in tripadvisor too)! Sorry for the inconvenience,... More

I guess I am not the only one visiting Pronto Pesce since August 4, when the last review was posted. Although I suspected that it would be closed, since there were no reviews in over two months, we still decided to give it a try and it turned out to be closed for repairs until Oct 31. FYI

We found this place while visiting the fish market and had the best lunch (probably the best food period but they're only open for lunch hours) of our trip to Venice. There were so many appetizing options at the counter that we couldn't decide where to start so the woman offered to make us a sampler plate with tastes of... More

We were having a look around the Fish market when we found this place by chance. We were drooling from the fresh seafoods so we started looking for a place where we can have the freshest of the fresh. The place is only small but it was full to the brim with both locals and tourists. There were only a... More

After some very bad experiences in Venice's touristic restaurants, we desided to rely on tripadvisor and went there on Saturday. Unfortunately, we didnt make it quite on time as they closed at 3 p.m. We were able to enter the restaurant place nevertheless and take some food to go. So we tried like 8-9 dishes just outside at the Canal... More

We wanted food liked by locals - this was it! Right opposite Rialto fish market - fresh fish superb cooking simple - wine by the glass - help yourself from the bottle Don't miss the prawns and scallops Cash only -no cards - tiny restaurant bit cramped - people waiting to sit down! Novel experience!!

Pronto Pesce now only opens of a day and is directly opposite the famous Venice Fish Market a short straight walk after crossing over the Rialto Bridge. It goes without saying that the produce is fresh and is turned into some exquisite (Cicchetti) like morsels. The cafe is compact but very laid back and the counter in front of you... More

My wife and two kids were on a challenging mission--find a good, local, and affordable lunch in the heart of Venice. Thank you trip advisor friends for pointing us to Pronto Pesce, which is opposite the Rialto fish market. It doesn't have an obvious sign, just a small sign on the window, so it took us a while to find... More

Lovely little place to go for a glass of wine and some really fresh, tasty chichetti mostly fish from the market opposite, note that it's only open around lunchtime. You order wine by the bottle but just pay for what you drink by the end, its easy for a bottle of prosecco to slip by because you're having such a... More
