Delicious seafood and friendly staff. Baby squid and scallops as starter. Mixed grilled seafood (scampi, Sole, squid, gamba, ......) As main course. pistache parfait and meringue as desert. And Vino frissant. So good! For around 100 euro for 2.

We have eaten here on several occasions and have always found the food and service to be excellent. Would really recommend El Gato. You won't be disappointed.

We could sit outside on the terrace which was very nice. But the quality of food was poor, we never had sword fish as dry grilled as we got at El Gato. I don't understand how they got all the positive feedback. Disapointing evening.

Wine list with ample choice, and not shamelessly overpriced. Food worth 4 points. Atmosphere tasteful. Service polite and efficient. Was here several times. A clear recommendation

El Gato was generally well rated in Italy's third largest fishing port. An all seafood menu and a nice setting on the main promenade augured well for our group of 7. Unfortunately the experience was the worst of our week cruising the Venice Lagoon. The...More
