While visiting friends in Mestre, we chose to spend our last night here at Lupo Del Nero. We were a party of 4, three adults and one toddler.

1. Great atmosphere, warm greetings by the staff and relatively quick service. (I am from the US and actually appreciate that the Italians and other European countries treat meals as events to be savored and appreciated where some of my fellow US citizens might get frustrated with what they would characterize as slow service. Not a judgement, just my experience. :) To each, his/her own)
2. They seated us in a spacious booth in the back of the restaurant so the little one could spread out. (Expert move)
3. All of the seafood dishes were very tasty
Appetizer Cicchetti Mista (Mix of seafood and non-seafood items)
My favorites: Crostini with greens and anchovies, fried mozzarella stuffed with fish and the sardine salad (apparently this is a very traditional dish and goodness is it delicious!)

My entree: Fillete de Branzano con Patate y Verdure
The fish was light and flaky and a bit on the salty side but that was fine as it was balanced by the lighter flavors of the vegetables and the potatoes. (I like to create bites incorporating each flavor)

Dessert: Panna Cotta
I am not a lover of sweets but this dessert was a DREAM.
It was as light as a cloud with a dusting of sugar and rivers of blended strawberries surrounding it. Just perfect.

Overall, this was the best meal we had while in the Venice area and a nice send-off for us as we headed to Lake Como.

Last tip: You may want to stick with the seafood dishes. My husband had the ragu and the other kinds of meat on offer and stated that his food was only ok.

What a great restaurant! We found this quite by chance whilst looking for a late dinner. Very happy we did - lovely, tasty food, and very friendly staff. The wolf art work was also well worth a look.

We went at Osteria del Lupo Nero during a short trip around Venice. The place has a warm atmosphere and friendly service. We wanted to eat as much as possible traditional food from Veneto, while eating in a chilled easygoing setting.
They have a nice many, many specials and a selection of 'cicchetti' - somewhat similar to the Spanish tapas, although with slightly smaller servings. The cicchetti can be a nice way to try different things. The osteria also offers the chance to order a 'fantasia' - a platter of 7 cicchetti. We had a fish and meat one and a fish only one. We also had a nice dish of cheese, vegetables and polenta called 'piatto vegetariano'. Completed with a pitcher of prosecco. Nice, relaxed night.

Having walked around this area as we were staying locally we came across this restaurant and decided to stop for an afternoon lunch / dinner here. They soon found us a table after just a few minutes for the four of us. We were so hungry but after ordering the appetisers soon came. They looked quite small so you may want two per person but they were good quality and fairly cheap. We had the battered sea food and sea food linguini. Also palenta with veg. The squid and prawns were very nice as was the pasta. Home style chips very good just how I like with skin on. Menu was in English and the lady who served us spoke great English and they even took a photo for us. Very enjoyable place.
