    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!

    This restaurant is the complete deal. A wonderful atmosphere , with efficient friendly staff and a fabulous menu. We had the Special set $45, 3 course lunch menu and it was so delicious, very generous servings and fantastic value for money.

    The food and staff were fantastic. I don't usually take the time to write reviews but the service definitely warranted it. Would recommend this to friends and family for sure.

    Wonderful Athmosphere and genuine great service with a smile. The food was up with the Best Eateries of Melbourne but better value. We booked a Party while we were there. Great Place.

    This was the first time we had been and just loved the whole experience, the food was divine and the staff were amazing. We have already booked to go back early December as it was so good.

    We love coming to Vaporetto and enjoy the changing seasonal menu. Never disappoints when we visit. Service and food are both always superb and it is a favorite of ours.

    Always a favourite eatery. The food is uniquely Venetian, service is fantastic and the atmosphere is wonderful. Plus there is plenty of parking.

    Refreshing to see a slight change of menu this visit, but was gutted to see the duck meatballs go! Nonetheless, the squid ink linguine with king prawns added to the menu was extremely flavoursome and fresh.

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
