I normally am only an avid reader of reviews but the delicious and wonderful dinner this evening drove me to write my first review. For starters, both my wife and I love the garden setting. We took the house recommendations. The mussels with tomato and chilli and the corxetti with pesto tomato and shrimps were the best we have tasted and were followed up with absolutely delicious chocolate dessert. We couldn't help notice the many locals who stream in and fill up the tables around us. This is clearly a favourite restaurants for locals with reasonable local prices.

We tried this on our first evening on a recommendation from the hotel and never went anywhere else. It was packed with locals on Saturday. Lots of families from the square were eating here, which is always a good sign in Italy.

We had a great time at Vecio Portal.

Excellent food reasonably priced.

Pino, the owner, is a great guy.

We will visit him again as soon as we land in Venice.

We had a good value meal here and the waiter we had was really excellent, attentive and friendly but not over the top. Venice has a lot of over priced places to eat. This was an enjoyable meal at a reasonable price.

We were offered a table in the enclosed, umbrella covered garden, under the fig tree, which was nice. We ate here not long after they opened at 6.30pm as we had concert tickets for 8pm which meant we were the only ones there for a while. The host was pleasant and then service was passed to another waiter who was nice enough. We ate one of the specials, noodles (linguine) with artichokes and scallops (very little scallop to be found) but it was only €14 each, so not too bad.
