    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.

    Very welcoming atmosphere and great food were in abundance at this neighborhood restaurant. I’d highly recommend the ‘livers & onions’, a delicious dish that is perfect to share as a starter with a cocktail from the extensive drinks menu. The broccoli Caesar was another standout that will definitely be making it into my own cooking repertoire. Delizioso, provalo!

    We were a family group of 4,out for a Sunday lunch. First impressions were of a lively, confident sort of place. Busy and welcoming. Everyone thought their meal was a winner. Fresh flavours and quality ingredients. Relaxed pace with just the right gap between courses. I had the risotto with mussels which was excellent. The tiramisu is not to be missed. Looking forward to returning.

    You simply cannot fault vaporetto - amazing food, lovely genuine staff - tonight they popped a candle in my mothers dessert and provided the accompanying ‘happy.l birthday’ chorus. Lovely setting - great vibe. An absolute gem . Thank you!

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
