Loved this little seafood restaurant, very homely and felt like you were eating in a nona's kitchen and frequented by the locals. The waiter is old school and fabulous and helped with our food choices. The bread selection was excellent and there was also an excellent complimentary appetiser. Wine in Venice has Benn hit and miss so far as the... More

Great place with friendly staff. Even better food and excellent selection of reds. Serves fish dishes done to perfection in local Venetian style. Antipasto (baccalà mantecato) was just perfect as were other dishes - grilled prawns (12 of them), grilled gilt-head bream as well as sole in white vine sauce...great feed for 4 people for only 140 euros...

It is a very traditional place with a very polite personel. We went with friends from Treviso and was an excellent choise because they knew what to order. Dont forget to taste the bacala with milk and conchiglie crudo!

I went for a business dinner and I found an excellent service in a very traditional osteria which I would reccommend to everybody looking for a seafood tradionar restaurant. I ordered the fish antipasti (I would say enough for the dinner because you receive a lot of dishes ) and a very good fish risotto and a superb fried calamari... More

We went here on our last night in Mestre. It's a great family restaurant with many locals. Only two tables were tourists - a good sign. We had such a great seafood dinner. We started with the boiled seafood mix, I had pasta with crab - and lots of it! - my sister had spaghetti ai frutti di mare (seafood).... More

My story: Coming to this restraunt on a hot and sunny day, we sought out this restraunt. Being close and convenient, as well has having great reviews, this seemed like the ideal location for our dinner. However, we were in for a few surprises. First off, our waiter/owner (not sure if he was both) told us that he couldn't speak... More

We went on a quiet family lunch, tired after a long travel from rome with our entire family. This place had the best reviews, and was well located on a quiet street, when we went there to our utter surprise... The owner who was also serving with his help from Asia was flapping around pretending to know no English, and... More

Good afternoon, I believe that His words are extremely defamatory. I can accept that they are moved to local criticism as such (for prices that can be held by someone too high for the quality of food, to how rude the staff hired to serve at the table) but I can not accept at all that for rudeness or other...

So this is not your typical Venice experience. It's not a tourist restaurant and the servers don't speak any English. But when we had dinner there, after it being recommended by the shop owner where we bought a mask, we have to say that this is pretty much as local as you can get. The food was super duper delicious.... More

Thank you for the beautiful words. I say that we are in Mestre (the small town on the Venetian mainland) and that we also have lots of offers for our beloved foreign customers. Otherwise it's always nice to receive such reviews and those beautiful words. Thank you very much to all the staff of Veciaposta More
