Great selection of pizza and portions are huge. Prices reasonable and the place is packed with locals. Service was efficient but a little elusive (perhaps that is because we were a little early).

We came here on our second night. We had high expectations given the resounding success of the previous night, yet were not disappointed. We found the pasta to be fantastically flavourful and the house red wine was among the best I have ever tried. Highly recommend it. The price was €37 50. We got for a large pizza, two pasta... More

Sottovoce was recommended to us by our host in Italy, so we decided to give it a try after a day ferry hopping around Venice and the lagoon. Sottovoce was about 40-50% full when we arrived at 8.45p.m. and we were warmly greeted and seated inside the main restaurant as we requested. The menu was in both Italian and English...which...

We were among the first in the restaurant at 8pm but place filled up quickly. The owner was the only one speaking English and was very helpful with his recommendations. Service was very quick and we ate the best shrimps we've ever had. The bill was very reasonnable.

My family and I found this great little restaurant in the back streets of Mestre, full of locals - always a good sign!! Great menu, atmosphere, and friendly staff - no problems on the language either so don't worry as the menu was in English, and the waitress spoke English too. Really tasty food, from salads, to pizza, to pasta... More

Great food and wine, we couldn't decided between red and white so they gave us trial glasses to help which was lovely. Food and wine for two came to less than €25 (that included 1ltr wine!) and was really tasty and local. Staff were friendly and inviting. Located just down a side street from the main town centre meant it... More

We actually stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for another place to eat. We were so glad to find this little gem near the theater in Mestre's center. The service was great, cozy ambiance, reasonable prices and the food delicious.
