We came here on recommendation of our hotel - A Tribute to Music Residanza. They were right on the mark! I believe the owner ran the restaurant - or at least he acted like it, in a good way. He recommended three dishes for the two of us, split each dish personally, and each was great. Wine was excellent, and... More

Tried this on the recommendation of our hotel. I had the octopus, tomato and onion, fiancé had the gnocchi. Both dishes were out of this world. Only let down was when we went back the next night for dinner to find out they're closed on Tuesday. If you're in Venice and want to avoid the touristy spots this is great... More

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...
