We have visited Tortuga several times during our stay in Jesolo, and would love to return there again and again. Very good meal, great choice, fresh seafood. Very friendly and professional staff. Pasta with seafood (for example with crabs or lobsters) is just wonderful. You should also try their nice italian deserts and also do not forget to ask for... More

I've tried most of the good restaurants (and some not so good ones) in the Venezia area from Locanda Cipriani on the island of Torcello, Harry's Bar in Venice (sorry, definately overrated)to Laguna in Cavallino to mention a few. In fact I've been arguing with the owner of the hotel we... More

We told that we really are interested in good food and especially Italian cuisine and that one of our main aims everywhere is to respect and value local food tradition as a major part of the culture in generally. While walking few kilometers (maybe two) enjoying... More

Excellent restaurant, with great food at great prices. This restaurant is on the main road into Jesolo and is very much a local favorite. The mixed grilled fish main course was an excellent way to sample the range of fish on the menu. The dessert was delicious! Chef Rinaldo and Piera are great.

Warm, friendly and helpful staff. Despite the language barrier the staff did everything to ensure we had a lovely meal in this great restaurant. The lovely waitress advised to order a small selection of starters between us, which was sound advice. The mixed fish main course was an excellent way to sample the range of fish on the menu. The...

The food is wonderful and our friends Veronika, Walter and their extended family are great hosts. The wine list is excellent and we always have a fabulous meal, can't wait to be back next weekend. Now the dilemma is shall... More

It's 20 years i come to Tortuga at least once per year. Fish is what you want to eat here. All of it is excellent but to me the top dish is Spaghetti all'astice. I am quite picky and travel (and try restaurants) a lot in Italy and abroad. I never found any spaghetti all'astce better than Tortuga's. They serve... More
