If you want to try the real and traditional venetian cuisine - Hostaria Fortuna Vecia in Vicenza is the best choice. The place is quiet and cosy, the staff discrete, very kind and cheerful. Fish offered by Claudio are always very fresh, selected and prepared perfectly. You must try amazing polenta with schie and different types of raw fish and... More

I grown up in Veneto and every time I come back I go to Claudio's restaurant for eat the amazing fish of this region. You don't necessary have to go to Venice for good fish, you can even find it in Vicenza and eat it prepared in the original way, with the traditionally taste. The restaurant is a bit out... More

Great surprise in Vicenza. This fish restaurant, quiet and comfortable, matches up to the best anywhere, and we know good fish. There is a very diverse selection on the menu. Do not be disappointed if every selection is not available the night you dine. The chef presents many wonderful choices of fresh fish, so well prepared. If you select a... More

Claudio is a master at his craft. I live in Vicenza and usually I grade on a curve with restaurants here, taking in the fact that most people visiting are going to be a captive audience, so I rate as if the restaurants in my town were the only ones on earth. Claudio is an exception and I put him... More

I have been twice to Fortuna Vecia, with a group of friends and as a couple: both times I ate very well, and this opinion was shared by all the others. The starters are excellent and if you go with a set of them, it will be enough. One of the must are the sarde in saor, above average: capelunghe... More

Its just out of the main center but it's a little restaurant where the fish is chosen and cook by a true Venetian guy. I'm from Vicenza as well but I live abroad and I warmly suggest to everyone is visiting my city for food and atmosphere.

Very nice good quality fish. But then there are many good restaurants in Vicenza specialising in fish which also offer other types of food. It was nice but with two fussy children I doubt I would go again.

This is absolutely the best seafood restaurant in Vicenza. While small (be sure to make reservations in advance) and a little difficult to find, the food was fantastic (especially the spaghetti vongole) and the service was top notch. Parking can be a bit of a problem, but recommend parking in the gas station to the right of the restaurant any... More

This restaurant is tiny, but what it lacks in space it makes up for with its fare! I would highly advise calling ahead for reservations or you may find yourself out of luck. I went with a group of friends and the owner/waiter treated us all as if we were old friends. He started us with a tuna appetizer which... More
