We were searching for some small restaurant where we could eat both pizza\pasta and some seafood with my husband. Very pleasant staff advised us as for the menu (we were searching octopuses). We had "cicchetti" for 1 person which is small variety of seafood, just to try not to satisfy your hunger) and pizza. Both foods were good as well... More

fantàsia is first of all a project: they want in facts to give a working chance to some disabled people, and they actually do - which in our opinion is a very good idea. said that, as a restaurant is a no-frills trattoria, including pizza and widescreen for football lovers, with a certain attention to food in terms of quality...

Service very good and value for money. Only disappointing thing is you could smell the cigerate smoking coming from outside the restaurant as dinners lite up after a meal. Unfortunately this is a common thing in Europe.

This fantastic restaurant seems to have been set up to assist people with intellectual disabilities to work, from what we could tell from the newspaper clipping we read while in the restaurant. On top of that, the food is good, drinks are generous, very good value for money and great service. The staff were very kind to us and our... More

We visited in 2012 and loved it - this time it was just a bit below our recall and expectation - but having said that, this is wonderful place and our bedroom window looked down on it - so no long walks!!

We had a pizza and tortellinis with bolognese. The pizza was quite ok, but the tortellinis were close to terrible. We were not able to eat the tortellinis due to bad quality and taste, but nobody cared about it. The waiter just took the rest and didn't care about the complaint (no excuse, but instead an unfriendly reaction). We have... More

Me and my partner stumbled upon this place whilst roaming around, and decided to give it a try. We were greeted by a waiter who didn't not speak English at all, but quickly found another one of his colleagues who did. I decided on just the carbonara pasta, whilst my partner opted for the 16euro special with tortellini beef ragu... More

We stumbled across this place as we sought refuge from freezing lagoon breeze. In a city chock full of overpriced and pretentious eateries, fantasia is breath of fresh air. Good, fairly priced food served in a relaxed environment by friendly staff. The fact it Is also a social enterprise helping disadvantaged individuals is a great bonus. The review which slates...
