Lovely typical restaurant near the buzzing city centre of Jesolo Lido. The service is always professional and friendly but make sure to reserve in advance, especially during weekends. Fish is super fresh every day and of the highest quality - absolutely worth it!

The restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel, as the best seafoood restaurant in Jesolo. It may very well be, but compared to good seafood restaurants elsewhere, we have found it a bit overrated. Everything was OK, but not great. The mixed raw seafood platter was unexciting and more like a sashimi plate. The Rombo ai Ferri was too... More

If you are looking for the best raw food plates, great pastas, raviolis, the best oven baked rombo con patate, superb sole filet abd many other tasty items, this family owned restaurant has been the clear choice for years. Good service, stable quality and suoer tasty sgroppino. Don't miss it.

We had our Silver Wedding party here, it could not have been better. The food is gorgeous, excellent wine list and great service. My husband proposed to me here in 1989 & we come back several times every year, it's just the best!

We had read great reviews so gave it a try but I thought it was a bit over rated. I had sole and Hubby had prawns. She asked if we wanted salad or chips, we both said salad and she added 4 euros to the bill for each salad - that wasn't priced on the menu which I thought was... More

We have visited Tortuga several times during our stay in Jesolo, and would love to return there again and again. Very good meal, great choice, fresh seafood. Very friendly and professional staff. Pasta with seafood (for example with crabs or lobsters) is just wonderful. You should also try their nice italian deserts and also do not forget to ask for... More

I've been going to this place for many years. I've tried most of the good restaurants (and some not so good ones) in the Venezia area from Locanda Cipriani on the island of Torcello, Harry's Bar in Venice (sorry, definately overrated)to Laguna in Cavallino to mention a few. In fact I've been arguing with the owner of the hotel we... More

We visit Tortuga after having a discussion with our Hotel owner and her friend. We told that we really are interested in good food and especially Italian cuisine and that one of our main aims everywhere is to respect and value local food tradition as a major part of the culture in generally. While walking few kilometers (maybe two) enjoying... More

Excellent restaurant, with great food at great prices. This restaurant is on the main road into Jesolo and is very much a local favorite. The mixed grilled fish main course was an excellent way to sample the range of fish on the menu. The dessert was delicious! Chef Rinaldo and Piera are great.
