A grouip of six of us were staying at the Hotel Delfino in Mestre and I had already researched Tripadvisor for nearby restaurants. All of us preder to eat in restaurants that the locals use rather than your typical touristy hostelries. Hostaria Vite Rossa was the obvious choice to try first as it was less than 200m away and had... More

Food was excellent with good portion sizes. Service was a little haphazard but that was because two waitresses had to cope with all of the restaurant. Overall would recommend highly but make sure you book. A very popular place.

Read the reviews and so thought we would give it a try. Noted comments about how busy it gets. Thought it might be a little quieter as not the height of the season. Didn't book and just turned up! How wrong was I . The place was heaving and spiking over onto the street. Asked if it was possible to... More

We had a lovely time in Osteria Vite Rosa, very friendly stuf, the food is excellent, the wines are very good, but the spritz (Apperol spritz) is divine!!!! If you want to feel Italy, make a reservation here and YOU will never regret, infact you will return every night, as we did! This is a place we will never forget!... More

Been here for dinner, service was excellent also considered we didn't have a reservation on a busy evening. Food was very nice and there is a nice and cosy atmosphere.

Take my word & make a reservation here! They have a little handwritten English menu & it was ALL EXTREMELY DELICIOUS! Highly recommend the super affordable house red...like velvet. Hordes of people gather outside for happy hour & well priced Prosecco. Skip Venice & head to the outskirts. Right by the 4 bus stop!

Don't be fooled by the outside as it isn't the best looking exterior - this was the BEST meal we had in Venice! Really cheap but so delicious, we went back but it was closed (Monday evening). If you are staying in hotel Ambasciatori or Delifino it is opposite the road, the first left before the bus stop. You must... More

We were recommended this place by our air bnb host, we arrived about 9pm no booking. Got there and the place was full with lots of people outside, most looked like locals so we thought it must be good! Asked if we could wait for a table and they said 15 minutes so we ordered some drinks and waited. They... More

My BF and I came here after a long flight to our hotel in Mestre, around 10pm. We waited 5 mins for them to seat us but were able to get drinks in the meantime, served up by some very nice and friendly bartenders who gave us excellent wine (I got a sweet, red, sparking wine and I wished I... More

A very nice small place where you can find typical venetian food called "cicchetti" (Tapas). Famous in town is frequently full local people. Many finger foodd is prepared every day from the staff. Fresh home made pasta and cakes from the mummy's kitchen. Main courses cooked with seasonal ingredients, local and national wines, and artesanal beers. Don't lose the occasion to entry in "Hostaria Vite Rossa", Best in town.
