We are the most delicious pizza at El fontego while we stayed at Chioggia! The staff were always friendly and accommodating and the establishment was very cozy and clean and charming. My favourite pizza was the Fontego!! All in all a wonderful restaurant :)

Nice place, flexible staff but, sometimes a bit stressed by the many clients they have. With the result that the work they delivery is pretty chaotic.

This is the place where to go when you can't agree on anywhere else, when people in your group eat different things, when you have children, when you want a decent pizza and when it's getting late and other places have already closed their kitchens. You won't be disappointed whether you choose meat, fish, pasta or pizza. Great spot, very... More

We were eating outside in July. The place was busy and even without reservstion we found a table quickly. The waiters were very friendly and quick. We had pizza Hawaii and calzone 🍕, Spaghetti 🍝, Scaloppine con Patate frite. Highly recommended 👍👍👍

Starter was fantastic, and worth the €20... Pasta dishes also good. Service too, and pleasant out door seating.

Wide choice of menu for delicious dishes with decent price. Many tables inside and they are all filled by local residents. Easy to eat with good house wine.

Our expectations were not particularly high on the rainy evening we visited. However we were reassured by the mature staff which often characterises Italian restaurants. The menu was extensive and so was the wine list. We opted for prosecco alla spina which was good. The food was first class especially the mussels and the scallops were possibly the best we... More

Great place in Chioggia. At first we had a coffee break outside but later decided to have a lunch there and never regretted. Place is very special. It was full with local people celebrating whatever it was the case. Great seafood and perfect service.

Thank Atael
