Authentic Italian food. Gnocchi was sublime, beer was plenty, steak was cooked to perfection followed by a delightful panacotta. Not far from our hotel, walking distance. Reasonable pricing. Attentive service.

We ate there twice in our holiday. We ordered pasta and desert and were not disappointed. Would definitely recommend. The staff is pleasant and nice, food comes very quickly and is freshly made. Do make a reservation if you want to be sure you will eat there because is often full. So if you are visiting Venice and staying in... More

This restaurant is located in a residential street, away from the main avenues as it has been there for many decades. It is established, frequented by locals (generally quite busy so book in advance), with extensive, varied menu and very good local and national wines. Service is dedicated, attentive and knowledgeable. Excellent prices too

We found this restaurant in TripAdvisor. It was not on the main road and we would never discover it without knowing. Thank the Reviewers for that. This was a family run restaurant with very cosy atmosphere. Service was friendly and the waiter was humorous and made us feel like at home. The food was very good, Amarone - excellent. Strongly...

What is the opposite of pretentious?.............this restaurant. It is tucked away in a small street as the only restaurant. When you approach the door it looks nothing special and the menu is so small and badly lit you have doubts. Once inside this all changes. The place is positively buzzing with locals. We were surrounded by Italians out for a... More

11 of us went to this restaurant and everyone gave it "thumbs up" from starters to desserts that we ordered. Very well marinated with herbs. Service was good too.

The restaurant Hostaria Dante is located in Mestre, in a small street, a little bit out of the historic center. The place is nice. There is a small terrasse in front of the house. The menu proposes a nice choice of starters and main courses, including several specialities from the Veneto region. The food was very tasty. I took a... More
