My wife and I had dinner at Dante on September 22, 2015. The restaurant was recommended by our hotel and was a short walk. The restaurant is very comfortable, with an outdoor patio (where we sat). The menu is available in a variety of different languages and the staff was able to communicate in English with no problems. The dishes... More

If you choose to stay in Mestre as opposed to Venice proper, do yourself a favour and visit this place for dinner after an intense day of sightseeing. I had a tuna steak and my girlfriend had pasta with cheese sauce and shrimp. Both dishes were of superb quality, the staff are really friendly, there's no cover charge and equally... More

We came here based on the reviews we read on Tripadvisor. It was well worth it, as the staff (owner) was accommodating. I had 2 children with me and he offered to make something simple that's not on the menu just for the kids. Welcome bread were not changed, which is a good change. Food was really good, fresh and...

The food was exquisite. I ordered vegetarian dishes and they were cooked to perfection. The service was good and the staff were very welcoming.

Recommended by our hotel Villa Costanza which was around 15 minutes walk away. It is tucked away in a residential area but is well worth a visit if staying in Mestre when visiting Venice. We sat outside and enjoyed a lovely meal with good portions and great service from the lovely waitress. Mains we had included calves liver, pork medallions... More

Small traditional restaurant, not much ambience and food was just ok for price. The variety of menu was ok with fresh fish being offered

Nice little local osteria. The portions are ample and the prices reasonable. The daily catches are great values. FYI, if you are looking for it, the street it's on is really more of a wide bicycle path/sidewalk, so it's easy to miss.
