Venice Ristorante & Wine Bar
Yes ,there is Italian food in DenveGood bolognese among other tasty dishes
Moderate prices and nice space make this a winner6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTable for 8I was so pleased to see that our table was a round one. So many restaurants only have rectangular options for 8. First time to this Venice and will definitely be back. Everyone had a different entree and they all looked beautiful and were delicious. Unusual to see 8 different meals ordered, and then for them all to be wonderful shows what an outstanding restaurant this is. Very attentive waiter even on a Friday night.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Birthday Dinner!!!My experience at Venice was EXCEPTIONAL! I celebrated my 30th birthday with a group of 7 friends and all agree that we had a great time. I sent a message and spoke with a manager about my desire to have a 5-star experience for my bday and Venice did not disappoint. Venice is intimate, with a warm and inviting ambience. The food is amazing, the wine list is extensive, and the service is great!!! Chilean sea bass was sensational, Driss was a fantastic & attentive waiter, and the manager helped me celebrate with a birthday dessert big enough for the group plus limoncello shots! The staff at Venice exceeded my expectations and made my bday that much more special. Thank you for the experience!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid ChoiceLengthy menu of well executed Italian classics with a few nods in the direction of creativity. A salad of pears, gorgonzola cheese and walnuts on a bed of greens comes wrapped in ribbons of cucumber. It was refreshing, but you've had this before I suspect. Veal saltimbocca (veal + ham + sage leaves) was a generous serving with good quality ingredients, strong sage flavor, and a very nice sauce. Server was extremely accommodating, swapping out some side dishes to suit my requests. Wine list looked extensive but I didn't take advantage of that. Meal for one was $50 with one cocktail, one salad, one main plus tax and tip.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMVenice - best business lunch!The food, service and ambiance are outstanding! The standard menu and the daily specials offer delicious choices. My guests from Chicago loved the pasta. I love the the exquisitely presented salads. Phil and his attentive team make everyone feel very welcome. Venice consistently is just the best!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVenice VirginsThis was our first time at Venice in Downtown Denver. We were wonderfully surprised! Great food from an eclectic menu. Excellently prepared (no thought was ever given to needing the salt and pepper shakers). Some of the best Carpaccio I have ever had, and I've been to Italy for the "real thing" twice. Great portions on the entrees; plenty but not too much, and even though I had what might be considered a "heavy dish" of wild boar, it was wonderfully light. Very friendly staff that know their business. They were very helpful in paring wines with courses. We'd go tomorrow if we lived in Denver. This was a special occasion, and we are glad we went.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBlows me away every time!!!Took my Mom to eat here for Mother's Day and I simply loooove this restaurant! The food was absolutely delicious!! The service was fabulous. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone and plan to bring my Aunt when she comes to town next month:)5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA nice venue for a get-awayThe venue will take you away to a italian resturant found in the busy city of Milan. The wait staff is excellent and I would recommend anything on the menu. I have eaten here several times, the last was the only time that my food was a little oily and the sauce not up to the standards I had received before. Even though my meal was below the standard I am use to at Venice, my parties meals were exceptional.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVenice - simply, the best!Just had another outstanding business lunch at Venice. My guests are continuously impressed with the food, service and ambiance. The lunch menu offers them a wide variety of choices. Venice also has an outstanding "Happy Hour". The Happy Hour includes special prices on some excellent wine, and a choice of about 10 small plates in the bar area -- all delicious! The bar area is beautiful.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMVenice - Consistently outstanding!Venice is my favorite location in LoDo for food, service, and ambiance. My business guests appreciate the stellar food and service. I appreciate the menu choices at lunch, especially the beautifully presented salads. It's simply the best!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will returnDelectable menu selections, beautifully presented. Well trained waitstaff, professional yet friendly. We had an early seating, which we enjoyed. As we finished dinner, the restaurant had filled up, and the noise level became more distracting.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLoDo's Venice is a GemI have dined at Venice a half of dozen times in the past two years and it's food is always excellent. The wait staff is enthusiastic and yet reserved. They know when you need help and when to stand by and let you enjoy your food. The food is always a joy. Prepared to perfection and mouth watering. Daily special menus make coming back to the restaurant fun just to see what the chef is preparing today. Highly recommended!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day and we didn'tMother's Day and we didn't want to pig out at brunch. Venice, normaly open for dinner only on Sunday, had delightful specials in addition to the regular menu. Quit and wonderful service. My wife left her camara in the valet parked car and they retrieved it for us.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Birthday Dinner EverMy family and I decided to celebrate my birthday here to try something new. I couldn't be more happy with that choice. The manager helped us choose an great wine and even say down to celebrate with us for a couple minutes. The food was excellent. Since we wanted to be able to try as much as possible without being miserable, we ordered a couple appetizers, entrees, and desserts! Everything was fantastic especially the Chilean Sea Bass and the Lobster Ravioli.
I certainly plan to go back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe made reservations for 630We made reservations for 630 pm and were seated amongst SEVERAL tables of prom kids. Our table was also right at the entrance of the kitchen which created a less than romantic experience. Our server went out of his way to ensure we were comfortable which was appreciated.
Recommendation - on nights when you are expecting hundreds of prom kids, inform other patrons when they are making reservations so they can choose if they want to deal with the noise and other distractions.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit toThis was our first visit to the restaurant. The food was very good and the service we received from our waiter made the night memorable. We will certainly try it again.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Dining Room In DenverUntil last night we had only dined on the patio, salads and small plates. Last night we dined inside and I am totally awed by this restaurant. This is one of the best dining experiences I've had ANYWHERE. The service was outstanding from the minute we were seated until we left 2 hours later. The food was prepared perfectly and was reasonably priced. Finally, the room was electric. There was so much energy among the tables and staff I could not believe it. And this was a Thursday night!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Venice is a great spotThe Venice is a great spot with a superb menu. There is a wide selection of dishes from fish, to meats to house-made pasta. Best of all, the staff is so attentive to our needs and never rushed us through the meal.

That is when we could hear each other... it's pretty loud.
If you put aside the table configurations, the food is fantastic and the service is terrific! There were a few tables for 2 along the walls, but plan on being next to a stranger (Right next to a stranger)4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVenice - Consistently Outstanding!Our guests were impressed with the elegant presentation of the food, as well as the taste.

My business guests love it!12/18/2012 12:00:00 AMVenice was a quaint littleVenice was a quaint little place in the down town area. The food was amazing. The restaurant has definitely put forth the effort to be elegant but they are a small room. Being a small dining area, the noise level is amplified. If the bar is busy the noise spills over to the diners and it can get loud. The music was nice, the service was great. Overall, we would return but slightly on the high side price wise for the overall package.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
