Very pleasant, seafood specialty

I was pleased with what I had. Sardines with oninons are a local specialty. They were ok, I think they are much better in Spain, so I wouldn't view this as a must have. The fresh catch of the day with an olive, caper, tomato sauce was very good..

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel concierge, an Italian local within the Mestre area. The menu prices were very reasonable. Despite how late it was (9.15pm on a weekday), the restaurant was very busy and had a pleasant atmosphere. Decor was nice except for this lovely glass cabinet stacked messily with heaps of CDs instead of decorative items.... More

Loved it. We squeezed in at lunchtime-I think it was around Christmas Eve or just before. The place was absolutely packed with locals and we could barely hear each other over all the chatter, but that is often a sign of a good restaurant, isn't it? Our server was very busy, but he was kind, professional and efficient. The lunch... More

We spent a really nice evening, with really nice wine and local food at Osteria Cuccagna in the centre of Mestre. The restaurant is part of the slow food chain, and offers 0-km food ingredients (bought from the local market and local farmers). Everything we tasted was cooked and presented to perfection. It's not a cheap or fast food place,... More

My husband and I found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and thought we'd give it a try and I'm so glad we did! The staff were attentive and very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing. I had the traditional Venietian Biorgi with sea food and my husband had gnocchi. The desserts are home made my husband had apple strudel and... More

This is a very nice restaurant but we were rather overwhelmed by the waiter who waxed lyrical about the grilled fish. When it came, there was really just a lot of fish and a couple of pieces of (very dry) polenta. Left alone, I would have chosen pasta so was disappointed. My husband had (also recommended) steak and chips and... More

Enjoyed a great meal this evening. The fresh local seafood was divine. We shared the stuffed calamari for entree, both had the shrimp and pumpkin risotto for main. We thought it sounded liked an interesting combination and it did not disappoint. We finished off with a creme brûlée and panna cotta for dessert. Including two glasses of wine for 50... More
