We are currently in the Glacial, getting ready to order our meal. We ate here last night and couldn't fault anything at all! Mario and Sylvia are two of the friendliest people you could wish to meet! We have just finished our second meal here; I had mixed fried fish and potatoes, and hubby had the steak, which I had... More

This was very much a 'locals' bar/restaurant. We were made to feel at home and enjoyed a very pleasant meal.

The food was really tasty and our waiter was a fun guy. We had a great dinner here and would definitely come back if we ever returned to Lido.

We both had pizza - hubby had the special, I had the tuna. Too much for both of us, it filled the plate. Cheapest food we've found on island so far too - Brucey bonus

We stumbled upon Glacial restaurant one day on our hunt for a good italian pizza. The restaurant was nice, staff helpful and friendly and the prices reasonable. The pizza was so good that we came back to the Glacial two more times

Stopped for lunch, I had the 4 cheese salad and she had the pasta with clams. Both exceeded our expectations. We also had a lovely bottle of Rose from Colli Vincentini.

We walked in and were welcomed by the server. He immediately took us to a table and gave us menus. He guided us in a wine decision so we ordered. We also looked over the menu and ordered all what we wanted. I got spaghetti with meat and it was beyond good. I had not experienced it yet in Italy... More

I had the eggplant parmigiana and it was delicious! I am an American and I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Italy for the first time. I also had the tiramisu and it was delectable! Definitely someone I would go again and would suggest to try for those visiting the area! Great food and service!

My partner fancied spaghetti and sea food and, as this was on the menu here, we decided to try it. I chose steak and potatoes expecting those lovely sliced potatoes that the continent does so well. What a disappointment - oven chips! I like chewy steaks but this one was tough! We asked for white wine and were given red.... More
