My wife and I were really hungry and ordered a pizza, the 4-cheese pasta, bruschetta, and a large salad and shared everything. What a feast! The food was ready very quickly, the waitress was very nice, and everything tasted great. The ingredients are top notch--the tomatoes on the bruschetta tasted like they were picked from the garden right before being chopped, the cheese on the pasta had a wonderful smoky flavor, the pizza had very fresh ingredients and an excellent thin, crispy crust. What I liked most of all were the prices--5 to 8 euro for the pizzas, 5 euro for the pasta, and they even brought us tap water for free. There is a per person service charge of 1.50 euro, and you should pay your bill at the cash register up front instead of waiting at the table for 30 minutes like we did before the waitress finally said we could pay at the front. We would go back again tomorrow, but it is closed on Tuesday so, sadly, we'll have to find somewhere else.

My Wife, Mother in law and I have been staying at the Holiday Inn Venice Marghera and having eaten the first nightingale the hotel restaurant which was OK but overpriced we decided to try something else.

The Al Calesse is just a 5min walk from Holiday Inn and when we arrived the place was already getting busy.

We ordered mixed fish, linguine pasta and grilled chicken with side dishes and drinks and came to 50 Euro, a good price and half what the Holiday Inn charged us for a similar meal

Food came quickly and in good portions, all served by smiling people

The whole restaurant was buzzing as we were finishing our meal, there must have 70 people coming through it, all locals, that just shows how good the place is.

We will be back tomorrow too and if we come to Venice again we will definitely have a meal here, good home cooking and great service, all at a price that you can afford

We chose this restaurant because of the good reviews and the location near our hotel in Marghera. We were so happy with this visit. Great food, cheap prices and the local feeling!

We happened by this place while taking an evening walk from Hotel Roma few blocks away. It was noonish and only one person inside but we were famished from our trip. We sat down to the absolute best pizza and bruschetta in Venice, It was so good! We couldn't believe that there wasn't anyone in here! We decided to go back later that night and saw that the place was absolutely packed with locals, huge families and a 30 min wait for a table for food that was very much worth it. One of our favorite restaurants in Italy. Great deal for the money too.
