We came to Al Vecio Portal by recommendation of our hotel, and we were not disappointed. During our 5 days in Venice we ate at this Trattoria 3 times. Recommend the sardines in onions, the wonderful Sicilian eggplant salad, and the ravioli. Even a side dish of spahetti with tomato sauce was plate-licking good! Desserts and ice cream are homemade.... More

We stumbled across this restaurant whilst wandering around. We liked it because it had a blackboard out the front with the specials on - all of which had been put together that day from what was available at the Rialto Market. The service and food were both excellent. I would certainly go back again. Interesting collection of bottle openers and... More

ate here and whilst the food was ok there was no atmosphere in the restaurant, perhaps some background music would help?

Visited this restaurant after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and I'm sorry to say I found it pretty average. My lasagne was dry & served on a cold plate which cooled it down quite quickly. My wife's pizza was lacking in topping. Nothing to write home about. There are much better restaurants in the area.

Excellent restaurant just off the waterfront near Arsenale vaporetto water bus stop. Varied choice on menu and a reasonable price, all food made in house (including gluten free pizza if required). Waiters very friendly, informative and speak a variety of languages. We went on our first night in Venice returned at every other opportunity to eat. Will definitely go back... More

Wonderful food, good service. We were the only foreigners in a packed restaurant the evening we went. That says it all. Highly recommended!

The best seafood spaghetti I have ever had came from here. And my other half had a pizza which looked pretty good too; he demolished it pretty fast so I guess he enjoyed it! Can't recommend enough, nice people, nice atmosphere and great food at a good price.

We have dined at this restaurant every night and some lunches on this past trip to Venice. Their food is fresh and well presented. If you are a Gnocchi fan like I am, they are by far the best I have ever had.

A nice little place just around the corner from the main tourist attractions. The pizza dough is homemade, the basis for a good pizza. The antipasti- home made ravioli with eggplant (a venetian special) are a must. If you are looking for a nice little place with a friendly owner and staff that serve home made italian food, than this... More

We came for a quick lunch and we spent 1h30... with starter, main and desert... The chef is cooking, welcoming and serving... Like at home! Fresh fish, great pastas and excellent wine... What else!
