Nice dinnerThere were 4 people in our party. The salads were beautifully presented and were very good. The main dishes were amply sized. My entre, the 'ear' pasta, was good, but a little bland. (I like things very spicy, and this was not spicy at all.) The restaurant was full by the time we left, and it was very hard to hear each other talk at that time.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite Denver restaurantI simply love everything about Venice. Our family had a wonderful time and we are not an easy family (16) to please. We had some special requests, and all age ranges. Everything was perfect.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe entire staff was excellent.The entire staff was excellent. We had a group of 12, and the staff did not miss a beat. The food was excellent, we will definitely be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. ItGreat food and service. It is. Ery hard to find a place that is excellent at both.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMdelightful lunchWe had a lovely lunch @ Venice, and took the opportunity to try something different. The pasta & salad dishes were wonderful, as was the super Tuscan wine. This is our favorite Denver area restaurant.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways goodI have been here several times and it is one of my favorite restaurants. The service is knowledgeable and helpful, wonderful wine list.
I will be back.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousThe food was amazing, the service was excellent and I am going to brin my husband the next time. I lunched with a friend for her birthday and our waiter Luis was very attentive and we had a great time. Definitely will go back.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a delightful neighborhoodThis is a delightful neighborhood Italian restaurant & really oh so much more. The veal dishes are incomparable, which is what we usually order. The seabass is a delicious alternative. We've tried many appetizers and salads in our many trips here, and they've all been delicious. We've settled on the pear salad, since it is delightful but not too filling. Every dessert we've tried is yummy, but our favorite is tiramisu, followed closely by the profiteroles (filled with chantilly cream rather than ice cream). The breads are fresh from the oven. The entire service staff is warm and friendly, but we have a favorite waiter who makes the dining experience especially warm and friendly. This is our favorite Denver area restaurant.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dining experience to date.This was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences we have had in a while. The food was excellent and our waiter Alberto was wonderful. He allowed us the time to actually enjoy each course and did not rush us through at any time.
We have already recommended the restaurant to family and friends, and we will definitely be dining there in the future.
The only downside to the evening was the noise level, but the food and service more than made up for this.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly reason I didn't rateOnly reason I didn't rate the ambiance at 5 stars is that I thought the look of the menus was a bit cheesy. Ours was a bit beat up and had kind of a "circus" look to the cover. I think if the menus were updated, I would give the ambiance 5 stars. Everything else about the place was wonderful.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI really enjoyed the foodI really enjoyed the food and the service was great.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service for my Mom's birthdayThe service for my Mom's birthday dinner was superb. The burrata cheese plate was good- not great, calamari plate was good but under seasoned. The entrees were very good, pasta cooked perfectly. My son's dish was served with wild rice, and it was grossly undercooked and inedible. The server took a clean fork to it right in front of us, and agreed. We enjoyed a complimentary dessert and proseeco as we celebrated Mom's 71st birthday. The restaurant is incredibly noisy when full. It is difficult to carry on a conversation at a table larger than 2-4 people. This is a drawback- especially for older folks who are challenged by excessive ambient noise.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNormally Venice is a solidNormally Venice is a solid 9.5 - 10; this time they were a little off but still I would give it a 8.7. Breaking in some new waitstaff.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!We live near this restaurant, driven past it for years and finally decided to try it. Well,we waited too long!

Great service and delicious food4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for Prom dinner and wasWent for Prom dinner and was surprised with the quality of the restaurant and the food. Was able to reserve a table of 8 people, 2 days in advance of the reservation on a saturday night. Food was amazing and the time it took to order the food and have it served to the table was very quick, 10-15 minutes. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMReservation was for 7 PM.Reservation was for 7 PM. It was very crowded and we arrived at 6:55 and were seated as soon as we arrived. This place is a "Gem" in a shopping center.
The waiter was a seasoned gentleman by the name of Christopher Robin. He was very friendly, professional and knew his wines. The owner quickly came over to welcome us and wish my wife a Happy Birthday (it was in the reservation).
The service, food and wine were all excellent. Our waiter surprised my wife with a candle lite fabulous dessert.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been few times in thisI have been few times in this restaurant (during lunch and diner) and the food has been always very fresh, well prepare and well presented, it always tasted very good!!! The dishes are priced reasonable, especially for the quality you get and the portion size you also get. This place can be for any ocasion. Great restaurant!!!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMJust another fantastic eveningJust another fantastic evening at Venice, I guess that is why we keep coming back.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMArtistic presentation!The food was very good and the presentation was beautiful. Very nice staff.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I had a "dateMy husband and I had a "date night" at Venice and had an amazing time. We wanted someplace with excellent food and a great atmosphere. We got both! Our waiter was dynamic and the service was impeccable. The restaurant was packed (a testament to its quality), and was thus somewhat loud, but I had expected that from other reviews, and was not put off. Great food, great wine, great service, great date!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only issue we ever haveThe only issue we ever have is that on weekends it is very crowded and reservations are generally later than the time one reserves.
Fish and pasta dishes are excellent.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!A group of friends met at Venice for lunch. The service and food were excellent. My only complaint was that the music was too loud. Venice is a new favorite, though, and I look forward to returning for dinner.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good choiceconsistently excellent food with a varied and clever menu. One of the best Italian restaurants in town4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday for 25 people, loved it!Hosted a very large group for my husbands birthday. The staff didn't miss a beat and we were all requested separate checks which went well, without any hitch. They were able to attend to everything with a smile and the food was amazing. This is a somewhat hidden gem in Greenwood Village, away from the chaos of The Landmark DTC crowd or parking hassle of Cherry Creek. Very busy place, but still romantic and charming. Thank you Venice! Jane and Carsten Hannen3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThey made or 12th year anniversaryThey made or 12th year anniversary special. Great experience.

My 3 daughters and 2 sons-in-law joined by wife and I for an Easter reunion in Denver and we picked Venice for the 1st night's dining. Everyone had a great meal and the service was outstanding. We'll continue to refer oiur friends and family to your restaurant.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMVenice Ristorante surpassedVenice Ristorante surpassed all of my lofty expectations with regard to food, service, and ambiance. If you want flavors that dance all over your tongue then this is just the place for you. From the crusty bread and rustic lavosh to the velvety chicken marsala... "molto delizioso!!!" P.S. It was my birthday and Venice Ristorante prepared the most elegant and luxurious plate of canoli, tiramisu, chocolate covered strawberry, and creame anglaise. I wanted to dig a hole and live in my tiramisu for the rest of my life. Heaven! Go and go now!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food was fantasticAs always the food was fantastic as well as the service. Alessandro is a master chef and Nunzio is a great host. One of my favorites in all of Denver.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been here 4 timesWe have been here 4 times now and have yet to try something that was not amazing! The waiters are "professionals" and know the food and wine menu by heart. All the dishes have a decent size serving but with a very reasonable price.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was wonderful!Everything was wonderful! It was my husband's birthday and they made it as special as it could be!!Dinner was fantastic as was the service.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, excellentExcellent food, excellent service. Our waiter was very well-informed about the menu, and there was a great wine list. Hard to find a fabulous restaurant outside of downtown, but this one meets the grade.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server Christopher wasOur server Christopher was amazing! We had such an amazing time. The food was prepared to perfection and had such a great presentation! We will be back!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMVenice DTC March 2013Venice is always wonderful and this visit was no exception. We had a group of 8 women and were seated in the small dining room. The food, service and ambiance were impeccable. This restaurant is so lovely. We were completely pleased with our dining expereince.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Outstanding! The crewAlways Outstanding! The crew at Venice never fails to provide a lovely evening. This is a world class spot and we are lucky to have such a place in Denver. Keep up the good work!!!!!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, as always, was outstandinThe food, as always, was outstanding. The service was excellent. However, the resurturant does not get an overall grade of A as it is ridiculous and shameful that they are so cheap in serving a glass of wine. The bottom of the glass was barely covered. Poor!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoy this restaurant forWe enjoy this restaurant for it's terrific food and wine offerings. I had the veal scalopine w/artichokes and capers in lemon wine sauce, vegetable couscous and a side of steamed spinach -- all delicious. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the lamb shank saying it was wonderful. The desert (crepe w/hazelnut cream filling (Nutella) was overkill with too much filling -- too sweet. All in all a pleasant evening.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood restaurant to meet your friend6 of us went to Venice on a Sunday night. All of us have been numerous times. We were set up at a nice table by the window in the bar area, which proved to be private and not as noisy. The food as always was great. We all ordered something different, which was unusual. I had the pear salad which comes nestled inside a strip of cucumber. I was eyeing my friend's ceasar salad in the parmesan bowl. Both were great. I ordered a spicy shrimp dish-I forget the name-but the shrimp was perfect! Our server was good, but talked a bit too much and there were long waits between dishes, bill, etc, but he may not have wanted to interrupt. Venice is always consistent and good, and a great place to meet up with friends.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFour of us enjoyed a lovelyFour of us enjoyed a lovely dinner during 5280 week. Everything was outstanding: the salads, veal, salmon, profiteroles, and bread. The service was impeccable, as always, from our favorite waiter and his support staff. It was truly a special dining experience. This remains our favorite restaurant in Denver.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Experience at VeniceWe had a wonderful time dinig at Venice Ristorante. It was our anniversary dinner and even though we dined on the 5280 menu we were still offered a complimentary drink to help celebrate our anniversary. The service was fantastic! Our server was very helpful with the wine selection and was very attentive and friendly. By far the best Italian food we have had since moving to Denver from New York City! We will absolutely go back again!3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMIgnore the front, enjoy the foodService gets knocked down a notch as we came in for our reservations and many people that came in after us, were seated in better tables, incomplete parties and later reservations. They were all known to staff members. We were just a family of three, enjoying 5280 week, so after seeing that, we expected and got sat in the back. Food was out of this world, waiter treated us respect and was helpful in the decision making process. Loved the wild boar, the matching bottle of wine and the fact the staff helped my son create a meal especially for himself.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly Surprised! DELISH!We wanted to try a new place for restaurant week and this was a WONDERFUL surprise. I was a little skeptical, because of its "strip mallesque" location. The food from salad, to entree, to desert was EXCELLENT. The service was also on point. My only negative was it felt a little cramped inside.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experience!We can never say enough wonderful things about Venice. Everything about it is amazing! If you can, request Christopher Robin as your server ... He will make the experience the best!3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first time at VeniceIt was our first time at Venice and we weren't disappointed.

The pear salad was light and refreshing. The service is truly outstanding. Our favorite waiter makes us feel like royalty. We have never had a bad meal here or even an off one. Good veal dishes are hard to find and they know how to prepare it here. The sea bass was fine dining at its best. Need I say anything more?1/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
