This is one of our favorite places
to dine on the water. Great food, service, and ambience. Their halibut specials are excellent and so is the cioppino. Great lunch specials too."

Venezia has a beautiful view, but
that is about it. The food was good but great. Worst of all, our server did not pay attention to us except when it was time to pay. Perhaps we'll give it another shot, but I'd request a different server."

Everything about the Venezia is
perfection! As a family we love to eat out and make the everyday special. We went for a graduation celebration to the Venezia and couldn't have made a better choice. From the moment we walked in the door we new we were someplace special..... seated at a wonderful round table with a perfect view, wait staff was always just a look away and when asked made just the right suggestion(s) for our group. I cannot say enough about the Venezia, wait staff, food, view and wine list....all an A++. For those of you interested, the bar area looks incredably inviting - cozy seating and a great bar! We always like to try someplace new, but this is definitely a restaraunt that we will be returning to time after time!"

Quiet dining room. Great view of
Boston Harbor…Calamari with hot peppers was lightly breaded and very flavorful although somewhat smaller portion than past experience. Never got a Caesar salad that was ordered with dinner and other than an embarrassed “sorry” no mention or substitute was offered. Swordfish special was excellent, short ribs, scallop dinner very good and chicken cutlets were a huge portion. Tiramisu and sorbet were also very good. Made 5PM reservations as we were heading into Boston for a 7:30 show which avoided traffic and from restaurant we were 20 minutes from our show seats in Boston. Make reservations as there was a wait on our way out. We ordered house wine and purchased several bottles next door at the Boston Winery."

Restaurant was completely
renovated back in January of this year. Best view of Boston skyline. Lobster Venizia was delicious! Chunks of 2lbs of lobster grilled and shelled then mixed with pesto angel hair pasta. Wife had nightly special pasta dish of lobster, peas, tomatoes in a white wine sauce. Shrimp cocktail was served old school in a parfait glass with 4 poached large fresh shrimp. Wife had a tuna avocado salad with a soy and mustard mix. Service was excellent. Reservations are a must any day of the week and when made make sure a table with a view of the Boston skyline is requested. At night the view is fantastic. Very romantic."

We went for Father's Day. It was
busy so I'll try to give our server a pass - he was fairly abrupt and a bit rude. The food was amazing. We were a party of five and everybody was incredibly happy with their food."
Dined on 6/15/2014
I was disappointed we didn't seat
next to the window as requested. I noticed there was a window table that was available for about 30 minutes after we sat down. The food was just ok, swordfish not very fresh, tasted a little "fishy". The server was very nice and attentive. I probably won't be back for quite awhile, just not that impressed with this place anymore."

Celebrated our 37th wedding
anniversary dinner here. Had them make me shrimp scampi which was not on menu. No problem and it was delicious. Thank you. Also we had our daughters rehearsal dinner here and it was great!"

The chicken aioli was delicious as
was the chicken parm. There was a group right near us (in a private room), but we could hear them and it took away the ambience."
Dined on 6/8/2014
We came here for Valentine's Day
and were disappointed at the pre fixe menu (not because the food was bad, but because we had been looking forward to the Italian food and there was nothing we really liked). However, this time we came and it was great. We requested a seat next to the windows and were seated at such as soon as we walked in. We were just in time to enjoy the sun setting behind the boats for the duration of our meal. I got the chicken parm and my boyfriend got the chicken marsala; we cleaned the plates. The service was excellent, everything was brought to us before we even asked. We got the tiramisu for dessert, but the espresso flavor was a little strong for our liking. Other than that, everything was great. We will be back!"

Beautiful dining in an urban area.
The view of Boston is wonderful from either inside or outside the restaurant. We were greeted and seated at a table overlooking the water and was given ample time to make our choices. The waiter was prompt, courteous and didn't rush us at any time during or after our meal. The food was delicious, prices reasonable and the desserts were wonderful. We will return often now!"

We had a nice time celebrating our
friend's anniversary. Everything was cooked perfectly."

Took a very special person out to
dinner here upon a recommendation. Was told the food was good and the view was great. The waiter did his job while being as unobtrusive as can be. Hours flew by while I enjoyed my meal, lots of wine and the beautiful woman across from me. Good service, great ambience, good food with large portions. All in all one of the most romantic and amazing dinners I've ever had. If I had more moments like this night, I'd be the happiest guy in the world. "

Five of us met for dinner. The
food was awesome the wait staff were attentive but not intrusive we were there talking for almost 4 hours. The view was lovely and the prices were. Very reasonable "

We were greeted and seated on
time, our server was great, the food was great and to everyone liking. overall we had a great time and plan to go back there again."

What a great experience. We had
reservations for 10 people. Our server was very well qualified to work in this busy environment. We had appetizers and drinks a generous basket of fresh bread was replenished without having to ask. Glasses of water were always topped off. The food was perfect, desert delightful. I would recommend booking reservations early if you have a large party. Overall the staff was very professional and courteous."

Poor service, did not take us on
time, push together two tables to seat us, waited 70 minutes to get food"

We had an awesome experience
recently at Venezias. I made the reservation online about one week prior to visiting. The food was delicious, the service was phenomenal and the view was spectacular!! This was the first time we have eaten at Venezias and it definately won't be the last !!! It was a special occasion and there were 8 in our group. My husband thought it was reasonably priced."
Dined on 5/9/2014
Great service. The staff
accommodated my large party with ease and helped with the cake we brought. Appetizers were delicious and the view beautiful. Wasn't overly impressed with the salmon I ordered, I think it was overdone as was other meals ordered at my table. I'll be back to try again with a different menu item. Overall great service, beautiful view and the food wasn't bad. "
Dined on 5/9/2014
Party of seven, and all seven had
great meals. Food was outstanding and the entire party left saying they had forgotten how good Venezia was in the past. Being hidden away like it is sometimes can make you forget what a worthwhile trip it can be. Views are as good as any waterfront restaurant in Downtown Boston without the traffic to get there. The Chicken Pizzola with the seared Angle Hair pasta was delicious! "
Dined on 5/6/2014
As always the food was excellent.
The service was very efficient and very attentive to all seven of our party. Of course the view was perfect and relaxing."

I visited the Venezia in the
Boston location. It was absolutely magnificent. The dining area was great and the staff there. My whole table ordered the 2 pounds lobsters it was really taste. I can't wait to go back. My friends and I can't stop talking about the view. Every penny we spent was worth it."
Dined on 5/4/2014
Venezia recently updated the
interior and it now looks fabulous. The decor matches the excellent Italian food. The veal parm is excellent, and a good value at $23. Desserts are huge so maybe best to share, especially since the entree portions are quite large. Plenty of free parking too, so it's worth the 15 minute drive from Boston to Venezia. "

We celebrated my father's 83rd
birthday here. Almost every table on our side of the room was doing the same. There is a beautiful ocean view, very good service and something on the menu for everyone."

This is one of my favorite
restaurants - it has it all. Ambiance, food, beautiful bar & a wonderful setting right on the water. We went on a rainy night & it was still beautiful."

Some friends of mine and I like to
dine out during the week every so often. Due to traffic limitations and scheduling, we ended up choosing to eat here. I was a bit skeptical since, "what good restaurant advertises on billboards along Route 93?" It turns out, a very good one. I can see why they had to do it since the location is somewhat out of the way. Aside from boats docked, there wouldn't be much road traffic to advertise this place. We had the crab cakes, short rib and salmon. The short rib's sauce was probably a little on the rich side, but I tend to like it that way. All three were well above our expectations from a taste and presentation perspective. The serving size were perfect. We will be going back with our wives..."

Hi, I have not been to dinner
there in many years. Used to go all the time for Anniversary Dinners, family celebrations etc. the service was fantastic. When we went the other night. The service was just fair. Had to always track the waiter down to get his attention. He was very business like. The service was disappointing. It's too bad because its such a beautiful place. "

Excellent service at all. Nice,
friendly people who greet guests at entrance and towards the entire stay at the Restaurant. "

We had an early dinner on Sunday.
The food was outstanding. The view was great! We would return anytime. It was wonderful!"
Dined on 4/13/2014
Unfortunately, poor service
coupled with average food = overall negative dining experience. Additionally, because our waiter knew we were unhappy, he wrote the 18% tip onto the bill which was insulting. Unfortunately for him, he made less as we would have left 20% as that is our min. for poor to aver. service. The menu is unimaginative, as is the wine list, and the service is less than attentive."

the food is
outstanding............................the noise was tooooooooooooooo much. even the waitress could not ear us. talking with the company was impossible"

Our group has been to Venezia in
the past during restaurant week. This year we were disappointed that we were only offered a two-course lunch. In the past, Venezia offered a three-course lunch which included dessert. We were given a separate dessert menu, but found it to be quite pricey. The food, however, was very good as in the past."
Dined on 3/26/2014
Venezia is the perfect place to
meet friends and catch up. The food is very good, the views are fabulous and the location is a perfect meeting place with plenty of parking."

Went for lunch during Dine Out
Week--not too crowded (holiday) Great service/food/service. Good menu choices. Would help if they had supplied Dine Out Menu online before-hand."

Hadn't been in years and decided
to celebrate 2 family birthdays. Fresh look and still amazing views. We tried so many different dishes and all were spectacular. Large portions, hot food, some worth taking pictures of. Gorgeous presentation. Only one drawback was not very friendly server. Curt and almost rude. Didn't take away from the great day!"

Service attentive . Tables well
spaced Food good but lacking the special touch. Ample parking and great views of Boston skyline . Good local for quite dinning if no function is taking place"

Convenient to UMass Boston, we
often choose Venezia for special occasions. Beautiful water view. Food and service always reliable. This time I asked for eggplant parmigiana which was not on the menu. They did not hesitate to prepare it for me and it was delicious! Of course their bread basket is wonderful too!"
