Popular Ostaria with locals whom gather on the street to grab a drink and a few cicchettis. We made a reservation and we were taken to the back of the local to a very,very tight table. We order the mixed cicchetis platter which was okay, nothing to be remembered and then have a cod fish 3 ways and Linguine vongole(clams)... More

We visited Vita Rossa on the recommendation of the hotel concierge; perhaps he was on a kickback as it most certainly didn't live up to the hype. The bar staff were friendly enough, and the local Pinot Nero was good and reasonably priced, but that was where the positive experience ended. We were informed by the hotel concierge, and the...

We were looking for somewhere special for tea as it was the last night in Venice. This place was opposite our hotel and offers typical Venetian dishes. The restaurant was very busy and we hadn't booked, however the staff made us very welcome and found us a table. The mixed tapas starter was exceptional and the 2 pasta dishes we... More

Food great, relaxing evening, seemed to be only UK there and lovely to have something different to usual list of pasta and pizza. Very busy outside but managed to get a table. Staff superb and helpful, interesting to see they brew own beer similar to real ale and amazing licorice "liqueur". Thank you.

Arrived at this restaurant early and it was full already. The English speaking staff very kindly organized us a table but we found the paper English menu confusing and we had to share it between 4 tables. Most of the people in there were English so not sure why they don't just print a couple.... Ordered diet coke but received... More

My wife and two friends stopped in Mestre while visiting Venice and found tucked away down a side street a great authentic Italian gem. The Hostaria Vite Rossa was friendly, English speaking and the food was great. We loved it so ate there twice over our 4 day stay, you must book to be sure of a table as the... More

Delicious food, great value, nice atmosphere and friendly people. What more could one ask for. However you will need to book, even in December we found it fully sold out - with locals. I recommend the red wine Degani Valpolicella Ripasso 2014 classico superiore Red for 18 euros per bottle. Superb. Thank you for a great evening,

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.
