Al Vaporetto has two branches and the one that we dined at was its San Marco branch. It has paper placemats on the table showing a map of the area of Venice. Time was spent with us figuring out the areas we had explored in the daytime and how far we had gone on our adventures.
The restaurant area is made of light wooden tables, tiled flooring and softish lighting. The staff were friendly and our food was brought out quite swiftly. All of the food was cooked fresh. Gluten free items are also available at Al Vaporetto.
The Bruschetta had thick slices of chargrilled bread. It was generously topped with ripe chopped tomatoes and basil. Pizza and pasta had to be the main courses. Spaghetti with tomato was simple but tasty. Small pillows of pasta filled with ricotta and spinach made up the ravioli. Both of the pastas were enjoyable.
Onto the pizza, the Vegetariana was chosen. Toppings on this pizza were grilled slices of aubergine, courgettes, peppers and mozzarella. The base was perfectly cooked and the tomato sauce had a great flavour.
Al Vaporetto was a lovely Italian restaurant in the heart of Venice. With our appetites all satisfied, the bonus was that we had a lovely night time stroll to take in the beauty of moonlit Venice.
