Description: Vecio Fritolin from Venice is a loved, characterful little restaurant near Rialto Bridge in Santa Croce where people have been eating traditional Venetian food for over a century. It's one of the cities where you still can find "fritolini", precursors of today's fast food eateries, popular in the 1800s with both the rich and less well off. The scrumptious historic finger food is still served, alongside masterpiece variations on other local Venetian and Italian dishes. The seafood and vegetables come daily from the nearby Rialto Market, and are on the constantly-changing menu within hours. Whether they stumble or deliberately step onto Vecio Fritolin's pink terrazzo floor, everyone's invariably glad they did.

This restaurant ranks definitely on the high end segment in terms of service and food quality.
The only gentle feedback I would give as a customer who has genuinely enjoyed the food quality is that the portions are too small in my view.
We took a main dish and a dessert and for prices from 22 to 35 Euros for the main dish, one expects a 150g portion minimum which was not the case here.

The trend consisting of offering a tasting experience with a limited quantity has disappeared from the main famous restaurants.

In order to be full, you will need to definitely order a 3 course menu, the restaurant offers a full menu for 55 Euros which I would then recommend.

But the experience was very good despite this remarks which Intends to be constructive.

Good food. We were 7 people and came here for dinner. Food was nice, however the portions could’ve been bigger. Nice service also.

Excellent food. Reasonable prices and good service! The sea bass main course was one of the best I’ve ever had. It’s hard to find good quality food in Venice. The tiramisu was excellent!
