Highly recommend this place and the staff here were so kind. They provided us with great recommendations and just overall very friendly people. We traveled 3 other cities prior to coming here and this was by far our BEST/Favorite restaurant. From the bread basket to appetizer to entree and then dessert was all amazing. From start to finish and never... More

The old adage is " if it ain't broke , don't change it ". That certainly applies to Casa Fortuna. There are many decent to very good restaurants in Mestre - but Casa Fortuna still tops our list. We've been going there every time we visit Mestre from the UK and it never fails to achieve the highest standards. I... More

Looked for a good restaurant out of Venice and that was the most recommended, we arrived without reservation and a table inside the restaurant on the first floor was adjusted to us, the only in populated in the floor. After 10min without even ordering drinks we called the waiter and the answer was "outside is full and I must serve... More

Great restaurant, we were only staying in Mestre for one night prior to boarding a cruise so we booked in advance and were treated very well. The food and wine was delicious and there was a lovely ambience too. It certainly lived up to our expectations.

Did book in the afternoon but there were plenty of tables upstairs, surprising going by the reviews. The décor upstairs is rustic but relaxing. Service was slow but seems not uncommon in Italy. Impressed by the wine/beer pairings (recommendations for every course) and the prices per glass, from 2 to 5.5 Euro. Decided to share the antipasto plate, a combination... More

After researching the area before going on holiday, we read so many good reviews of this restaurant we made a point of visiting when we went to Venice recently. We booked in advance, as advised, and when we arrived the early signs were good. Nice location just off the square in Mestre, pleasantly set out, and numerous tables already taken... More

We stayed in Mestro when visiting Venice. A friend had been here before and rekommended the place so we went. We had lobster pasta and grilled Tuna and both were so good! For dessert we had Tiramisu (best I've ever had!!!) and mousse. The evening was great and we will definitely come back if we will visit Venice again.

We decided to finish off our Italian holiday with dinner at Tripadvisor's no1 restaurant in Mestre. Don't be foolish, you need to have seafood in a restaurant renowned for just that. The food was excellent and the wine selection good. We appreciated the wine pairing recommendations. Be sure to have the "Aperitivo Casa Fortuna", a starter with a bit of... More
