Great surprise in Vicenza. This fish restaurant, quiet and comfortable, matches up to the best anywhere, and we know good fish. There is a very diverse selection on the menu. Do not be disappointed if every selection is not available the night you dine. The chef presents many wonderful choices of fresh fish, so well prepared. If you select a... More

Claudio is a master at his craft. I live in Vicenza and usually I grade on a curve with restaurants here, taking in the fact that most people visiting are going to be a captive audience, so I rate as if the restaurants in my town were the only ones on earth. Claudio is an exception and I put him... More

I have been twice to Fortuna Vecia, with a group of friends and as a couple: both times I ate very well, and this opinion was shared by all the others. The starters are excellent and if you go with a set of them, it will be enough. One of the must are the sarde in saor, above average: capelunghe... More

Its just out of the main center but it's a little restaurant where the fish is chosen and cook by a true Venetian guy. I'm from Vicenza as well but I live abroad and I warmly suggest to everyone is visiting my city for food and atmosphere.

Very nice good quality fish. But then there are many good restaurants in Vicenza specialising in fish which also offer other types of food. It was nice but with two fussy children I doubt I would go again.

This is absolutely the best seafood restaurant in Vicenza. While small (be sure to make reservations in advance) and a little difficult to find, the food was fantastic (especially the spaghetti vongole) and the service was top notch. Parking can be a bit of a problem, but recommend parking in the gas station to the right of the restaurant any... More

This restaurant is tiny, but what it lacks in space it makes up for with its fare! I would highly advise calling ahead for reservations or you may find yourself out of luck. I went with a group of friends and the owner/waiter treated us all as if we were old friends. He started us with a tuna appetizer which... More

I found this restaurant after a friend told me she read it is one of the best restaurants in Vicenza on Trip Advisor. I called to make the reservation for five a few weeks in advance. The call was uneventful. It was my follow up call that piqued my interest. I called to increase my reservation to nine. The owner... More

There is probably seating for only 30 people in this restaurant, so I would make a reservation, becuase if you like seafood you are going to be one of the luckiest 30 people in the world that night. We were a group of 9 woman and had grilled tuna as as an appetizer, it was amazing, then scallops which were... More

We had misgivings about this restaurant because the recommendations were mostly from local people and none from outside Italy. The restaurant is not in the main tourist area and it is quite a walk from the town centre. However, since our hotel (Hotel Doge) was nearby, we decided to give the restaurant a chance. We were very pleasantly surprised. This... More
