Best of BostonFrom the view of Boston Harbor to the tastiest food this place has it all going on. An A++++ on the must experience list of Boston.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food & great viewFriday afternoon on Boston Harbor was sunny and clear. 6 of us had a beautiful view of the harbor through the new windows at Venezia. Food was very good except for the onion in the lobster salad. Regular french fries would have been preferred to shoe string. The portabella mushroom appetizer was to die for. 2 people raved over the shrimp. We all had different entrees and enjoyed them. The server was a little hard to understand. Perhaps the specials should have been included in the menu. Overall, an enjoyable afternoon!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent experienceThe food was very good and service superb. Free parking and a water view. Nice!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly problem was ecousticsHi
The restaurant is great foodwise and atmosphere wise.They have updated the decor and it is very nice. We had a large round table overseeing the water. We did have a large group of 10. The ecoustics were the only problem. It is very difficult to converse as the restaurant is very noisy and loud. Perhaps it was because it was a busy Saturday night. Probably better for a smaller group to interact.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionI recently brought my friend to Venezia's for his birthday and we had the most wonderful and memorable time. Everything was perfect from our waitress to every last morsel of food. Thank you for a great evening.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat View, Use Your GPS In & OutVenezia is a "hidden" restaurant located in the Neponset section of Dorchester. Use a GPS to find your way in and out (there are two ways to get in, but only one way out.) There is a terrific view of the Boston skyline. A nice place for a business lunch or a special occasion. There is also a banquet room for receptions or larger parties.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVery accommodating!Very pleased to have our group of 17 seated in a private area with a view of the water. Service was great. Food was good. Everyone was happy. And we could hear each other's toasts as we celebrated a milestone.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMNOTE TO RESTAURANTmy family and I had Dinner there recently and the food was very good, but the ambience very very noisy. I couldn't hear the waiter telling us the add'l specials of the night. W had previously ate in the banquet room in February,during your remodel and had plenty of room between other tables. Its too bad , But I feel the restaurant is too crowded between tables.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBravo VeneziaThe reception staff was wonderful. My daughter's graduation ceremony was shorter than I had anticipated. I called the Venezia and asked if they could seat us early. They told us to come in and they would give us the next available table. We were seated immediately. The staff who greeted us when we checked in were wonderful. The food and ambience was great. There were six in our party and every one of us enjoyed our meal. Coffee and dessert were also excellent. Waiter was okay. Did not come back until we were done to ask if we needed anything or if everything was okay. But, overall, the experience was wonderful. My family and I enjoyed it very much and will definitely be repeat diners.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMan old favorite renewedWe have enjoyed Venezia many times in past years and this year we went there for a birthday celebration and enjoyed it so much that we renewed our determination to go more often. Most menu items are very well prepared and presented, portion sizes are appropriate for lunch, waiters are attentive but not intrusive, and the view is not to be missed. Even though the restaurant seems to be located directly beneath a flight path to Logan, we heard no air traffic noises at all. We will return and spread the word.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI need a spoonThe food for the Sunday brunch was nicely laid out, but there seemed to be a lack of silverware. For instance, I realize the latte part of the afternoon is not the ideal time to attend a brunch, however, if the facility is willing to seat guests, they should ensure the guest has everything necessary to enjoy the brunch and beverages, like a spoon.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing restaurant on the waterMakes Boston proud with this amazing italian restaurant right on the water. Loved the food and the view only made it better.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMtoo noisyI would recommend Venezia but not on a Friday or Saturday night. It was deafening. Perhaps there is no way to dampen the noise but if there is, please do it! Of course a full restaurant can be noisy, but this was bad!
I don't like your "Ambience is required" and "Overall Rating" is required. That is going to make people say, oh, the heck with this questionnaire. Ask your customers kindly - please complete this form by answering x and y. Using "required" looks like we are applying for a loan or we are filling out a college application. Talk to us nicely please since we are doing you a favor.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNever fail in ambiance, service,Never fail in ambiance, service, and food quality.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMall done overI've been going to Venezia for years and was surprised to see it was all updated.

A recent renovation of the restaurant has updated their look and improved the overall ambience. They menu has been tweaked a little as well in terms of presentation rather than the offerings themselves. The food remains outstanding. The food here tastes like food I've eaten in Italy which is a high compliment. The view remains spectacular. I'll be back.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMScenic and Yummy!Our first time at Venezia was a triumph. View of bay is lovely, with ample window seating. Restaurant is designed with floor to ceiling windows to make the most of the waterview. Decor is understated to emphasize spectacular waterview.Food was excellent and service impeccable. I think they do a bit better job at Italian than Seafood. My Ravioli AlForno with Sausage was outstanding, but my guy thought his Swordfish was dry. The strawberry ice cream dessert was an unexpected WOW. We will be back!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are Very picky when itWe are Very picky when it comes to good food and good service. They put the two of us in a separate room from the rest of the crowd, very romantic, there was only one other couple there throughout our Dinner. The Waiter was fantastic and the food was incredible and the Dessert too. And the prices are great too, you'd expect to pay more, and we would have.
The special features that I didn't check was because I don't know, we are not from the area.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI had onion soup and chickenI had onion soup and chicken marsala.
