    I've been here many times and the thing that brings me back is the food. The only issue is not enough service help. My waitress was very pleasant but did not have the time to attend to our needsl. We waiting one hour before gettting our main course. This is a big concern when we are considering going again

    I believe that unexpected arrival of two large (10 person) parties put the staff under unusual stress. Food was great. Staff friendly but overworked.

    Venice has a good mix of Italian and seafood. I enjoyed the raw bar and the clams casino. The pizza was average. The place was not crowded at prime time on a Saturday night, but all of the window seats were taken when we arrived. The upstairs offers a good option if you want to be in a sports bar type setting. The downstairs is more a standard restaurant layout, but it is well kept. The servers were friendly. It took a little long to receive some of our food, but it was not beyond a reasonable time frame. We would come back again if we are in the area.

    We have eaten here several times, but this time was a disappointment to us. The main reason being the food as the usual friendliness and good service was as normal. The wife's fish dish was very good, but my fish and chips were horrible - fries were truly inedible. Thus, the average of "good" for a rating.

  • Menu Deceived Me
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 8/23/2013
    Scallops on menu said with couscous, lobster meat, and squash for $26. Well it should have said over couscous. That is what it was with two tiny pieces of lobster meat (you needed a microscope for it) and two tiny pieces of squash. Not what one would expect. Should have had outdoors opened. There was no reason not to have had the outdoor seating. (must not have had the staff). This was a Fri. night. We had a very loud table of three generations next to us and could have been seated further from them. They were getting a lot of attention. We had to BEG for water. Water glasses should get filled without customer looking around all the time for someone to fill them!

    Opt for a table by the window. Try the Scallops, and the Creme Brulee for dessert. Then try the entertainment downstairs, or check out the Sky Bar.

    Great place near misquamicut beach. Started with the mussel appetizer and fried calamari. Mussels were delicious. Very flavorful and a great size portion. Calamari was just ok. Nothing special. For dinner we had scallops wih couscous. It was delectable. The scallops were super fresh and melted in your mouth like butter. The other entree was grilled shrimp over the arugula salad. The shrimp were grilled perfectly. Tender and flavorful. Overall it was a great night. Forth year in a row we've eaten here while on vacation.

    An Italian restaurant called Venice should do pasta very well one would think. Unfortunately, the pasta dishes my wife and I had tasted like leftover pasta from a box combined with Ragu sauce. That may be popular with all the kids at the restaurant but is hardly the meal worth paying the big dollars they charge. Very good service could not overcome two very bland meals. Big disappointment
