This is a very good restaurant as far as the food is concerned, and is well patronised by the local population - if our visit is anything to go by. Al Gambero is in no way a pretencious place - there are, quite simply, high standards of food presentation.
We enjoyed our seafood, and veal (mine), and the local (?) wine a Cabernet Franc was amongst some of the best we have tasted in Italy. However I could not get over the feeling that we were somehow intruding, ... if not, well, a bit in the way. This was due to the very large parties of local people enjoying themselves, that arrived after us. We also had unbelieveable differculties in actually getting someone to give us the bill, and then take our money.
I think that we were seen as a problem rather than customers, which was a shame as the food was excellent. Maybe on a quieter night this otherwise excellent restaurant would have been more enjoyable.

Went there, almost full of people, thought we went right! But after a few Fawlty Towers errors by the crew, we started laughing! Smiles went off when we received the food, no taste or finesse whatsoever! And it just continued with mistakes thruout the meal, cannot understand how that place was recommended to us!

If I had not been taken here by friends of ours, going from how it looks outside I would never of eaten here . Thats because it looks quite shabby on the outside...but once you get inside you realise its quite an elegant place . Its also buzzing and full of people eating wonderful things. The menu is expansive and has on it just about every sort of seafood confection you can imagine. The service is swift the place is clean and obviously popular . While other places looked more chic from the outside they were empty ..... this restaurant was full.
Our friends had razor clams , some of which they let me share , they were excellent , delicious fresh , home marinated sardines soar, a favourite of my darling's went down well . I had the stuffed crab .. While presentation was nothing exceptional the flavours were . We ordered a huge Rombo = Turbot to be oven baked , it was delicious . The tartar of tuna our friend had also looked good .
This seems to be the most popular place in Jesolo to me and I don't wonder why . Its packed with locals who summer vacation in the area and those in the know.
If I was proprietor of this establishment I would look into jazzing up the outside a bit , because its not a true reflection of the treasures inside . But then again maybe they don't want to encourage any hungry tourists ?
My recommendation is be brave and try this famous place I hope to be back next year ....
