Had only a couple of hours to spare in Venice, and after reading all the reviews decided to find it, near the toilet at the end of the pier. Great pizza and pasta, even let us charge our phone. Very welcoming and lovely hospitality.

The first time we ate here was 27 years ago when on honeymoon in Venice. It was May and it poured with rain for 3 days from when we arrived. This restaurant was just across from our hotel and meant we needn't get wet, again. We came back ten years ago on our 17th anniversary just to see if it... More

Walking through Venice is a wonderful experience, which is complete in this delightful restaurant: very delicious food, excellent service, nice place, close to the Saint Marcos square. Besides the gondolas and the romantic environments, you will have a complete excellent experience in this beautiful restaurant. I recommend it to you!!!

Having just landed in Venice and not wanting much other than a light meal before returning to our hotel and catching up on some missed sleep, we found Al Vecio Portal in the Castello district as the owner and staff were finishing their evening meal. If we didn't mind waiting a few minutes, the staff would be with us shortly.... More

This restaurant had great food and provided and had a relaxed and fun environment in which to enjoy it. We each had a variety of foods and drinks and enjoyed each one. The owner was knowledgeable about providing safe Gluten Free items (including knowledge of cross contamination) and the gluten free pasta and salad was delicious. The location is in... More

Guys, we stumbled upon this place by chance. Run by the owner and his wife. Very helpful and cheerful people. We had a pizza for take away at such a reasonable price (less than 10 eur) that other places are a pure rip off). Highly recommended! Ooo and there is an internal garden as well if you want to eat...

Prior to our visit to Venice I had not heard of Al Vecio Portal, let alone seen a review. Fellow travelers who we had become friends with told us about them one evening. The next evening they said they had gone back again and that we should try them. Based on their directions we found Al Vecio Portal a short... More

We visited here in July, and can say the staff and surroundings are very pleasant and amenable, the food is varied and of a simple quick meal style, steaks and pizza's , pastas etc.. It was all very nice and especially for Venice very reasonable priced. You will not write a review on this site about the inspiring culinary delights... More

Went for a less expensive meal in Venice. I started off with the Caprese salad and had the pasta with clams. Both were very fresh and very tasty. My wife had the grilled shrimp with calamari and polenta which she enjoyed as well. The service, on the other hand, was somewhat 'scattered'. We had to remind the waiter that a... More
