Walked in without a reservation-risky as it was very popular, particularly it seemed with the locals who were gathered outside in the evening sunshine doing what Italians do-drinking wine and socialising! Service was excellent and the food delicious. Plenty of choice and reasonably priced. House wine good value for money.

We order the mixed cicchetis platter which was okay, nothing to be remembered and then have a cod fish 3 ways and Linguine vongole(clams)... More

We visited Vita Rossa on the recommendation of the hotel concierge; perhaps he was on a kickback as it most certainly didn't live up to the hype. The bar staff were friendly enough, and the local Pinot Nero was good and reasonably priced, but that was where the positive experience ended. We were informed by the hotel concierge, and the...

The restaurant was very busy and we hadn't booked, however the staff made us very welcome and found us a table. The mixed tapas starter was exceptional and the 2 pasta dishes we... More

A very nice small place where you can find typical venetian food called "cicchetti" (Tapas). Famous in town is frequently full local people. Many finger foodd is prepared every day from the staff. Fresh home made pasta and cakes from the mummy's kitchen. Main courses cooked with seasonal ingredients, local and national wines, and artesanal beers. Don't lose the occasion to entry in "Hostaria Vite Rossa", Best in town.
