About the restaurant Vaporetto Bar & Eatery

Get into the Venetian spirit with Vaporetto where you can get rose and pinot grigio on tap (yes, really!) before settling in for a full Italian feast. The brainchild of three food lovers who dreamed of a place that combined beautiful hearty fare with old school hospitality, Vaporetto is gilded with dark timbers, opulent chandeliers, brass and marble to bring a little slice of Venice to Hawthorn.

Best dish: Gnocchi, lamb shoulder ragu ‘sacchetti Veneti’, leeks & cloves & truffled Pecorino

There is a very professional welcome here and they have a lot of staff. The food was excellent but a bit overpriced in relation to the quantity. I was very disappointed that my voucher was not recognised even though I had asked about it on the phone. I didn't specify which voucher admittedly, but I was assured it would be accepted without being asked which one it was.

I like this restaurant more & more every time I visit. The staff are knowledgeable about the menu, attentive but not pushy. The cheapest bottle of red was a winner

Had lunch there today. This is a regular haunt for us. Great food and good service. Sometimes can be a little noisy. Love their house- made pasta dishes. Very attentive efficient to dietary issues.

This is an excellent small restaurant with a buy but very friendly vibe. The food is excellent and the wine list interesting and not too expensive. We were just a little cramped upstairs but we still had a great evening with excellent and friendly service too.

Great restaurant. Very accommodating. Friendly staff. Food was wonderful as was the wine. There were 9 of us all with likes and dislikes and from the time we sat down until the time we left no request was unavailable. We have been twice in 2 weeks and we will keep going. Highly recommended

This restaurant has a true feeling of being in Italy.
The service was friendly and attentive and the range of dishes was impressive. As it was lunch we just had one wine which we all enjoyed. Thank you for looking after us and for ensuring it was cool on such a hot day. The conversation with the waiters was lighthearted and fun which added to the experience. I will return
very soon!
Restaurant
