    Great food complimented by superb and engaging service. The wait staff were really helpful with menu and wine choices and did some with a happy disposition. I have been to Vaporetto before and it has always been great. I think it is even better post Covid.

    Took my wife today for her birthday and we were not disappointed. We had the 2 course with glass of Prosecco and it was more than enough. My wife had the vegeterian fritters for entree and I had the Calamari. Both excellently prepared with beautiful detail and excellent ingredients. The waiter informed us of some extra menu choices which made me switch to the Scotch Fillet with carrots, brocolini and parmesan and my wife had the squid ink calamari with blue swimmer crab. Again cooked perfectly and delicious. Waiter service was discrete yet attentive with water glasses refilled and drink orders attended to promptly. If you want to try fine Italian dishes (no pasta or pizza) with great service and not go away disapointed or hungry then this is the place for you. We will definitely be visiting again this summer.

    Vaporetto has done extremely well setting up a nice welcoming Covid-safe outdoor dining area and making sure guests are looked well after. The food was delicious as usual and our waitress very attentive. After take-away the past few months it was so nice enjoying the food fresh (and steaming hot) from the kitchen.

    So happy to get a booking for a pre movie meal - first post iso outing. The staff are all super friendly and helpful. I have gnocchi and they were light little pillows of deliciousness! I wasn’t drinking but bought a take home cocktail - how fabulous!

    The service was excellent and food good, but it could have been better. I had a pasta with a Beef Ragu. The beef was mince rather than chunks of meat of the bone which was a disappointing. I will be back but will order something else.

About the restaurant

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
