I've eaten at this large primarily seafood restaurant a couple of time for lunch. They have a fixed menu for approximately 11 euros. The rooms are quite large and decorated with tired sea decorations from the 60's.

Since I am not Italian, the owner gave me the regular menu without even asking if I would like the fixed menu. This is done occasionally at other restaurants as well, but I have never seen it done to an Italian customer. For them, they will always ask first. I think this is a dishonest way of getting non-Italian speakers to pay more for lunch.

Since I do speak some Italian, I asked for the fixed menu selections. This was met with a frown and a roll of the eyes before handing over the menu. Having said all of this, the food is not that good either. They primarily offer big portions at lunch for workers. The pasta portions are swimming in oil / butter. Is that really necessary especially with seafood? My kids ate pizza which was bad and they even charged them a coperto at lunch!

I did not find the quality of food or service to be good or friendly. Maybe its better in the evening? I don't know but am also not willing to give it a try. There are plenty of other good options in Vicenza. Try something else!

This restaurant is well-known in town for being the best for seafood. The food is great, there is parking outside (which you will not find at many restaurants here) and it is close to downtown (within walking distance). The atmosphere of the restaurant is harsh lighting, loud, and a large dining room. If you are looking for great food at a decent price and don't care about ambiance, this is your place.

This is our # 1 favorite restaurant in Vicenza. The food is excellent and was matched by the service. The staff was friendly and made us feel welcome (like old friends) each time we walked through the door. The pizza was amazing and the prices affordable. If you love seafood, try the "Frutti di mare". The "Purgatorio" is another delicious pizza. The fresh fish dishes are made to order and you can select the fish you want from the icy display case. The "Antipasto di mare Conchiglia d'oro" is enough for two and an excellent choice for anyone who appreciates fresh seafood. My husband and I are going back to Vicenza in September 2011 and our first stop we will be to visit our friends at La Conchiglia D'oro and enjoy a delicious meal. Our only problem will be deciding what to eat. You know it's good when the locals eat here!
