As fresh as it can get

Had a great quiet lunch on the outside terrace 100 meters from the main street. Good food but maybe a bit pricy, probably due to the location.

Following trip advisor recommendations we tried out this restaurant because of the good rating but we were very disappointed. Indeed it was the worst culinary experience in Chioggia. First of all the waiter forgot our wine order and it was served right to the main course without any apologies. During meal we were not asked to refill our glases although... More

Enjoyed a most wonderful meal here. The owner/chef and waitress were very attentive to all of the customers, who were from Germany, the Netherlands and us. The sea bass that I had was exquisite - It was a large whole fish - simply grilled served with baked vegetables of potato, tomato and zucchini- superb in its simplicity. The fish did... More

Very friendly owner/chef teaches at local gastronomy school, and it's obvious. He makes wonderful things of fresh local products - shellfish and fish are high on the list - and serves them beautifully. Wine list is great! Expensive, but worth it for special occasions.

Consisting of: Tipico piatto di pesce e frutti di mare crudi, composta da: Scampi freschi sgusciati, Ostriche, Tonno marinato Canestrelli e cappesante nostrane dell Adriatico,... More

While on vacation at nearby Sottomarina, we took advantage of a squally Sunday afternoon to wander around the historic streets of Chioggia, checking out the exterior of several restaurants as we browsed. A check on Trip Advisor back at our hotel later caused us to choose the Cavallo (1st in the listings) to eat that evening) over several of the... More

Best Restauarant in Chioggia. Food fabulous. Good value for the quality. Front of house very friendly and helpful. Not to be missed if you go to Chioggia. Only regret is that we didn't go there every night.
