We went there for dinner due to a recommendation from our hotel and because of the very good ratings on tripadvisor. It is a small probably family run place near downtown near lots of other restaurants - and that is maybe the reason why I gave it only 3 points: the competition is high and we had dinner the next...

We loved everything about this place. The food, the service, the prices and the host (Mario). he was able to recommend dishes for us and wine. The food was fantastic at a nice place. There were no tourist when we visited so i suspect this place is visited a lot by locals. We finished with a grappa tasting which was... More

A cycle ride from Lido through Pallestrina helped us build up a good appetite! Excellent fresh fish - well cooked, excellent dessert, good recommendation on wine and friendly service. I would definitely go back here and would highly recommend it.

Local fish food and pasta, don't expect any meat here. Great cook, hospitable and the owner has a great selection of grappa that he loves to share with you. He even had a grappa my gf liked. Highly recommended, don't forget to make a reservation.

We were on a day trip to Chioggia and after reading reviews on this site, we decided to have lunch at Osteria Penzo. We were happy with the choice, I had vegetarian gnocchi and my partner had octopus salad and pasta with fish. Everything was fresh and delicious. We didn't have desert but they looked great too. What I value... More

We biked from Lido through Pellestrina to get to the restaurant for lunch time. The ambient is simple and welcoming, and after passing through the small passage to the main dining hall from the bar, you are all set. The wine list and freshness of the fish ingredients is exceptional in this place. The service was fair, and they even... More

Visited Chioggia off season and had a lovely lunch with the restaurant all to ourselves. We all had the seafood pasta which was delicious, maybe could have had a little more sauce for depth of flavour. My son and husband both had Tiramisu, the best on our trip, and several had been tasted by that time. I enjoyed the chocolate... More

Small, a bit hard to find, but worth looking for. Family-run, they take pride in their local specialties, which are well-made. Friendly, helpful waiter is the husband, his wife is the cook. Prices good for the area.

For two years running, we spent our summer holidays boating and travelling around the Venetian Lagoon, eating at good and mediocre restaurants, but never quite found “The One” - that is, until the proprietor of a hotel we were staying at in Chioggia suggested 'Osteria Penzo'. It is run by (front of house) Mario and his wife Laura (in the... More

Very helpful owner, lovely "local" atmosphere, excellent home-made spaghetti alle guitarra as a primo (clams, mussels), well-chosen white wine (bottles, or by the glass/calice), and a nice assortment of desserts (dolci). I arrived early - it opens at 18:45 - and the restaurant was empty; within 15 to 20 minutes, all tables were taken, reservation recommended!
