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

Quiet area, but that adds to the charm, away from the San Marco crowds. Meaty Spaghetti Carbonarra, stunning Eggplant Ravioli plus I was offered the Scililian Zucchini as a taster to compare. Comparable pricing with the area. Very enjoyable....recommended.

I normally am only an avid reader of reviews but the delicious and wonderful dinner this evening drove me to write my first review. For starters, both my wife and I love the garden setting. We took the house recommendations. The mussels with tomato and chilli and the corxetti with pesto tomato and shrimps were the best we have tasted... More

We tried this on our first evening on a recommendation from the hotel and never went anywhere else. It was packed with locals on Saturday. Lots of families from the square were eating here, which is always a good sign in Italy.

We had a great time at Vecio Portal. Excellent food reasonably priced. Pino, the owner, is a great guy. We will visit him again as soon as we land in Venice. Toni

We had a good value meal here and the waiter we had was really excellent, attentive and friendly but not over the top. Venice has a lot of over priced places to eat. This was an enjoyable meal at a reasonable price.

We were offered a table in the enclosed, umbrella covered garden, under the fig tree, which was nice. We ate here not long after they opened at 6.30pm as we had concert tickets for 8pm which meant we were the only ones there for a while. The host was pleasant and then service was passed to another waiter who was... More

I ate at Al Vecio Portal twice on my trip to Venice. One night I went to a competitor and regretted it! At first the staff didn't seem too welcoming to a solo diner, but they warmed up! On my second visit, my nice waiter welcomed me with a complimentay apertif, a spritz.The best dish I tried was the spaghetti... More

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
