Boring menue, fake "fresh" sea food, extremely cold behaviour of staff. Poor selection of deserts and panna cotta with strawberies was made of extremely high amount of gelatine and there was no strawberies on it - just a cheap cold strawbery marmelade from the supermarket. Overrated prices. Ambient is outdated and tasteless, far from something traditional. Terribly disappointing...

We shared a lovely fresh salad Indiana which we ate without oil and was fully vegan, followed by vegetarian pizzas without the cheese - also vegan. So a very tasty dinner, in a beautiful restaurant with attentive... More

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 👍👍👍

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.
