    We went to Venice to celebrate a special occasion. The food was absolutely outstanding! Everything was made fresh in-house and was truly amazing! We were taken care of by a fun, attentive, and down-right exceptional server, Lisa! Venice is now our favorite restaurant in Denver! We will be recommending to everyone we know!

    We always have such a great experience at Venice, whether it's a girls night or dinner with the family. I unfortunately have many food allergies, but they are always happy to go above and beyond to make sure I can get something delicious that's not even on the menu. The waiters are always super friendly and very professional - the best we have found anywhere in Denver. We love it and always look forward to going back!

    We picked this place based solely on the name What a nice surprise it was to find a great place with fantastic food and atmosphere. The wait staff was very nice and helpful although they did seem slightly rushed. It did not take away from our experience however and we would recommend this place highly.

    Once again, Venice proved it is a shining star among eateries! I brought my friend Victoria, who is also a huge Venice fan, to lunch for her birthday on a Friday. Everything was perfect as usual - the butternut squash capallacci and the lobster ravioli along with a shared caprese salad was superb (even if my spelling of them is horrible!) Our waiter was better than excellent and treated my friend and me to tiramisou afterwards. What a wonderful celebration!

    We have visited Venice on 2 occasions and we brought friends this time who have never been there. Unfortunately our service this time was the opposite of the last, very poor. Our server took at least 20 minutes to get to us once we were seated and acted like everything he did was a chore. The food was great but the service definitely was inferior making me wonder if our first experience was the norm or this one unusual.

    We were seated in the front of the restaurant. It was so busy that we were constantly bumped into. Our chairs were almost pulled out from under us. They needed our empty chair for another table, so they just picked it up with one of our purses still on it. Very chaotic night with no regard to our comfort. They definitely wanted to turn our table quickly. We were rushed through our meal. Or waiter was great... And our food always good there, but not a relaxing enjoyable evening at all!

    We went to Venice to celebrate my brother in laws birthday. I had asked for a table by the window. Upon arrival I had reminded the hostess of my request (called to the restaurant after booking on Open Tabel) only to be told she had nothing noted. When I asked about sitting at one of the open four tables, the blonde hostess was snarky as said they are all reserved. We watched as two of them were open most of our entire visit. So much for customer service.

    Venice and the crew always make you feel special! Even on a boring old weeknight. Nunzio and his gracious staff are always ready to please. Could not ask for a better local experience with wonderful food, great neighbors, and just the right amount of helpful service. Make a reservation and if you book for 7:15 be prepared to wait a little bit even with a reservation. Don't complain!!! It goes with this popular territory and don't say you were not warned!!!!!

    Our waiter started the meal by throwing our napkins on our laps. Then proceeded to asked us what we wanted to eat every 2 minutes until we ordered. Refilled our water glasses once. Failed to make any sort of connection with us. He really seemed to hate his job. The food was excellent, I would definitely go back. Hopefully we get a different waiter.

    We dined at Venice Ristorante Italiano on 8/13/14. We all had some variation of the veal dishes, salads, and sides of vegetables and pasta. Three of us had a Produttori Barbaresco wine and one had a Chardonnay. The entire meal was spectacular in very way. The veal was very flavorful and tender (a rarity in the Denver area). Pastas were perfect, served quite hot. Salads were fresh and creative in their presentation. Our waiter was Fiorenzo - we plan to request him again next time we go. Fiorenzo is pure European meaning he takes his role as a waiter very seriously and clearly views it as a profession. He was superb from the beginning through the end of the meal. Always there, always attentive, but never too much. What a great meal!

    We have dinner at Venice Ristorante several times a year. Each and every time, the food is outstanding; the wine is excellent; the service is second to none. Most times, Chris is our server. For him, there is no request too great and no detail too small. He's the consummate pro. Complimenti a Nunzio and everyone at Venice for providing the very best possible experience.

    We went for our anniversary. The food, drink and service was great. We did go early, 5:30 dinner reservation. So the noise level was fine, which I had read could be a negative. I guess my only complaint would be that the tables are super small and placed really close together, (at least where we were seated) which we felt was a little uncomfortable for a romantic dinner. Then the hostess seated a couple at a table right next to us, when there were plenty of tables available. I can see that happening when the place is busy. But that seemed a little uncomfortable seeing the place was not busy yet and the noise level was very low at that point in the evening.

    As always, food and wine were very good, but even with a half empty restaurant the noisy is so high you can hardly talk yo your neighbor. And the music in the back, although good music, just makes the noise level worst. Pity, we would go more often.
