Diner Reviews
  • "We made reservations for a group of friends at Venice Restorante for my fiance's birthday. The food delicious and the service was fantastic. They allowed me to bring in my own cake, treated the birthday boy like royalty, and helped serve sing, slice and serve the cake following dinner. They even gifted the entire group with a specialty birthday drink. It was a wonderful experience. I'd go back for date night, dinner with family and/or friends (in a heartbeat!) Highly recommended."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our anniversary and upon being seated we were greeted with a complimentary glass of bubbly wine. This was a great way to start the evening. The meal was fantastic and while I would equate this restaurant as a 5 star in all categories the price point is very affordable. The general manager of the restaurant was very engaging and chatted with us during our meal and helped make our dinner that much more special. I would highly recommend this restaurant while in Denver."

  • "I found this restaurant through urban spoon, and boy am I glad I did. We got there early, but had no problem seating us. I asked the server to suggest a white wine for me. He did a great job. The food was a cut above. I had the lobster and shrimp ravioli. I haven't had a meal that was this good in a long time. Great time and I will return to this restaurant."

  • "I made our reservation through Open Table and even confirmed it by calling restaurant. When we got there, they couldn't find our reservation. The manager kept telling me I must have made the reservation for their other location. I even showed him the email from OpenTable that confirmed their address, but still had to wait 30 minutes for a table. THE WAIT WAS NOT WORTH IT!!!!!Their prices are outrageous for the quality and the amount of food you receive. This restaurant is not a good choice!! I am a chef myself, and trust me, save your money and go somewhere else!!!!!"

  • "This is the second time at this location. Both nights the service was extremely slow. We were unable to have dessert this last expereience because we ran out of time. I ordered one of the veal dishes. The flavor was good but it seemed that they were using a lesser grade meat possible to save costs. I don't think I would go back tot he downtown location.."

  • "We went here for my wife's 21st birthday. The Italian food was to die for - the best we have had in a long time. The wine list was on an iPad (since it was so exhaustive). The wine we chose was delicious. You can't go wrong with choosing this place."

  • "We were treated wonderful, our waiter was outstanding. The lamb, veal and ravioli and chicken meals were so wonderful. It was a birthday and Father's Day celebration and the service was great. We have been here three times and have not been disappointed once. I would strongly recommend."

  • "It is one thing to have great food and great wines. But when you combine that with outstanding service that makes you feel like family, it creates an experience that you hope for every time you dine but rarely experience. Thank you Paco. Your team is outstanding!"

  • "This was a pleasant surprise in Lodo downtown - the cuisine is Italian, but there are many different choices and they all seem to have a special twist to them that makes them unique - I expect this restaurant will become one of the favorites in downtown Denver"

  • "I am a junior in college, and my roommates from freshman year just met up for dinner at Venice last night, and we had a blast! The food was not too pricey considering how great it was, and the overall ambience of the restaurant was second to none. I would recommend this restaurant to just about anyone, it seemed appropriate for a girl's night, a dinner date, etc. Very accommodating to specific needs."

The Manager, Paco, does an outstanding job and always makes us feel welcome. We absolutely love the pasta at Venice. They serve the best ravioli in the Denver area. We will continue to return to this wonderful restaurant. Can't say enough about the great food and people at Venice."

  • "We dined here before seeing Once with another couple. The waiter made several recommendations that were each spot on. He recommended an Italian blend wine that paired perfectly each of our 4 main dishes. The food was excellent; very fresh. The service was second to none. We will definitely visit again."

  • "We went to Venice Ristorante & Wine Bar to celebrate a birthday. Three separate staff members stopped by the table to wish my father happy birthday and we were given glasses of Prosecco on the house. The service was wonderful and the food was even better. We also had the opportunity to try a new Malbec based on the recommendation of our server. We ordered a case on-line when we came home that evening. I couldn't have asked for a better dining experience."

  • "We were a medium sized party of seven. No one had any complaints. We had pasta, meat and fish selections. All were excellent in preparation, presentation and serving size. We had wine, cocktails, appetizers and desserts. In short, we enjoyed ALL of the menu. Only downside was the noise level. It was very difficult to hear my guests and the background music was erratic in volume and added nothing to the experience. Come hear to eat but not to converse."

We couldn't have asked for a more fabulous place to celebrate at (at for very reasonable prices!). I would recommend this to any group - one of my new favorite Denver restaurants!"

  • "We have always loved Venice. This was the first time we were disappointed. This dish I normally get had mussels, clams, calamari and prawns. This time it had tiny clams and shrimp - the taste was very different. The ambiance always was really attractive and inviting. Now, it looks tired and in need of a paint job among other things. The normally crowded dining room had very few people, and it was a Thursday night. Not sure what is going on, but we will NOT go back. Geri Schmidt"

  • "The server was preoccupied and somewhat rude. The decanters were all dirty, we tried three. Our party of 6 was crammed into a table next to a pillar which was awkward and tight. There were curtains in our way. The chairs we're wobbly, we swapped out other chairs and they were still questionable. Lastly, the food was mediocre. Chicken was a little cold. Venice used to be our go to place with out of town guests. I won't go back."

My guests like the varied menu, including the usual favorites and the daily specials. Venice is simply the best!"

  • "Cannot say enough about the wait staff - Julio was very attentive and made sure all our needs were met, drinks were replenished without us asking. When I asked where the restrooms were he didn't just tell me, Julio walked me to the restroom. The food was delicious and we would definitely dine here again."
