Diner Reviews
  • "We enjoyed a memorable dinner celebrating my husband's birthday. The veal dishes were truly outstanding, as was the service. The folks here know how to make a special occasion even better with their outstanding service."

  • "Everyone told us how wonderful Venice is and we agree. Service here especially is above and beyond. The sauces are the star of the menu and will bring us back. In flavor, service and value, one of Denver's top Italian restaurants."

  • "The kind and gracious staff at Venice certainly know how to work a room and do it right, without be annoying or cloying. Excellent Italian (tell them to go easy on the salt...depending on who is manning the kitchen it can be a bit heavy handed and it's easier to add it then take it away!) Fun wine list, excellent cocktails, they do a great job on veal and fish. Yum."

  • "Excellent food, excellent service. Can't wait to go back"

  • "We went to Venice with friends for dinner and, as always, had a terrific experience. Chris, who has been our waiter in the past, was better than ever (if that's possible!). The menu has something for everyone and offers a great Italian experience. We recommend Venice highly and enthusiastically."

  • "It's like CHEERS where everyone knows your name! Not for the bar scene but for the food! Always a warm welcome from Rodney (who is working the bar) as you enter the front entrance, then Nunzio spots you next, and another welcome, then waiters walking by give their gracious hellos as well. A place where regulars dine often. And not only is the atmosphere similar to a local dining scene you would find in a restaurant in a small Italian town but the food just as authentic and delicious! As is our usual experience, the food and ambiance are the best Italian you will get in Colorado! As a former NY ITALIAN, you can trust that I know good Italian food and ambiance. That's why we always return to our favorite place... Where they know our name!"

  • "A group of girl friends celebrate birthdays at Venice, so we are there often throughout the year. It is consistently outstanding. We used to try different places but now we only go to Venice. Favorites are the fish specials, veal and homemade pasta. The service is very attentive and they always provide a housemade dessert for the birthday girl. I have eaten at Venice many times for dinner and find it equally outstanding. We are so lucky to have this restaurant in Greenwood Village."

  • "Even though I made my reservation several weeks prior to dining date, we (five women) were given the worst table in the restaurant, right by the kitchen. My chair shook every time someone entered/exited the kitchen. Our waiter promised several times to be back to take our order, but that did not happen until I went into the kitchen. about 5 steps from our table, and complained. For this, we were given a free dessert, but did not get to choose the dessert. To be fair, our waiter and the manager were very apologetic and expedited the delivery of our meal. Our food was excellent. I feel that, as a group of women dining, we are never treated as well at this restaurant as when I dine there with my husband and other couples."

  • "Reservations were for a birthday dinner. When we were greeted that was acknowledged and the waiter kept it in mind and brought something special."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "I hosted a group for dinner on a Monday and I was disappointed with the overall experience. Our waiter and other newer waiters helping him were rather overbearing with wine and food suggestions-- we're sophisticated and can choose wine (!). They were also overly distracting as we were trying to converse-- then missing the mark when it was time to pour wine and/or take orders. The food was average (Sea Bass was good, pasta okay, appetizers okay) and the same wait staff then forgot to bring my "to go" box. It was okay, but this won't be a "go to" place for me in the future-- too many other options in the area. PS some menu's need refreshing-- as in torn and worn looking."

  • "Had a fantastic evening. Great food and Service. Our server Hugo did a great job. Highly reccomend. It was our wedding anniversary and they really took care of us and made the evening really special. It was our first time there and we will certainly return as I thought the food was superb."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Our first visit was wonderful, service and food were fantastic. That's why we decided to go back for our anniversary. This time no. Waiter seemed overhyped and rushed us thru the night even though it wasn't busy for a Friday night which seemed odd but after our meal, I see why it wasn't packed. The appetizer.. cantaloupe and prosciutto was fine. As we were enjoying the appetizer, our meal showed up. Again, there was no reason to rush, before done with app we had dinner sitting on the table. Food came out steaming hot (as from a microwave) so we let it sit. Pasta was cooked fine but the sauce on my pasta dish was gummy and sort of glued pasta in one big mess. Less than stellar. I may go back once more to see what the real Venice is like."

  • "The staff was great, good above average but still in a strip mall so the atmosphere is not great. Clean but a little sterile. Great wine list"

  • "The restaurant experience starts by the first person who greets you. We were greeted by the hostess with a welcome smile and seated for our reservation on time (maybe even a few minutes early.) Our waiter was very personable and engaging. We thought it was a bit strange the way our food was brought to our table, but it was quick. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. But, I thought the Ravioli d'Aragosta was missing something."

  • "We enjoyed a lovely, leisurely Sunday evening dinner. The wild boar pasta and veal were outstanding! Our favorite waiter was wonderful as always. Sundays are so quiet @ Venice -- the opposite of Friday & Saturday nights. This is a very fine restaurant with gracious staff and a charming ambience."

  • "Ate here several times for lunch and everything was fabulous. Took the whole family here for a birthday dinner - service was slow, food was so-so. Won't be back for dinner."

  • "Oustanding meal! Our server was excellent! Did not like the table for 2 right outside the kitchen. Unpleasant. Hostess showed her annoyance when we asked to be moved."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Very good as usual, attentive service, great for a easy neighborhood location. The carpaccio was excellent and also the eggplant with mozzarella, first courses. This restaurant does a very nice job in providing good service and consistently good meals. "

  • "I have been going to Venice since it opened and it gets better every time! Great food, great wine , good service...... "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Consistent, interesting, good wines, good service. Venice is firmly in the rotation. My only issue is they seem to want to give Open Table people a lesser table - like on a consistent basis - they want to seat me somewhere I don't like even though there are better tables available. "
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "We chose Venice for our son's graduation celebration because we expected their Italian menu to have options for everyone in our group (9 of us). It was not crowded, and there were several waiters, but ours rarely came by our table. The entrees did not come out together, so several of us had cold food by the time we started to eat. Once it was clear that service was going to be slow, we explained that we needed to get home - we actually had to ask for the check 3 times. "

  • "We celebrated my 34 year old son's birthday at Venice this week at Venice. As always, they staff greeted us by name and the owner, Alessadro, made a special effort to come to our table and wish my son a happy birthday. The staff treats everyone like family there. The food was excellent and the staff made the night memorable. Wonderful food and atmosphere."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "We had a group of 11- cannot rave enough about how great this place is. I never would have found this place- but am so thankful OpenTable had it as a recommendation. Incredible, especially if you appreciate authentic Italian found and atmosphere. The service was excellent, and the food even better. Absolutely outstanding!"

  • "I have dined at the Venice Ristorante twice and each time found the food and the service to be outstanding. The ambience is lovely. Definitely need to book."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Very good food as always. Acoustics need some attention. If you are there between 6 and 8:30, the noise level is very high. It gets better when people start filtering out. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Venice has so many things going for it -- nice decor, good food, (The sea bass is terrific), convenient location and parking. The service is just not what you would expect for such a nice restaurant. The center tables are too close to allow for proper serving and clearing, the timing is off, it is just a little confusing and unpredictable. But overall I really recommend and always have a nice lunch or dinner here."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "And the food is incredible too! My wife and I dined there again this week for Mother's Day and it is a great place for a special occasion and nice dinners. We had mimosas, carpaccio, good and reasonably priced wine, veal picatta, orecchiette pasta with italian sausage and we finished with the chocolate and caramel lava cake. But better than the food was the manager, Nunzio, and our waiter Chris. All the staff are so attentive and personable and feel like long-time friends."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "This is truly a superb restaurant. On a very busy Mothers Day we three had lunch. Everything was perfect. The service was as good as ever. Wine was poured, water glasses were filled. Burrata appetizer was delicious and the antipasti portion very large. I had rigatoni with chicken and mushrooms and it was perfect. Tender chicken, rich and creamy sauce. My husband had cacciatore and loved it. Our friend had pasta with sausage and it was fabulous. We did not have room for dessert but there were lots of good choices. This is a marvelous restaurant. We have been many times and will miss it! We are moving out of state and it would be very hard to find a restaurant like this in our new city"

  • "After reading the reviews about Venice - we decided to give this restaurant a try. It was o.k. We made an advance reservation - but were still seated at the worst table in the place - next to the kitchen. The restaurant was exceptionally loud. Hardly a romantic place for an anniversary dinner. The service was efficient if not a little abrupt. I was served an additional glass of wine that I did not order. When we had an surprised look on our faces as the extra wine was poured...the waiter said "you didn't order more wine?" and then abruptly wisked the wine away. What was really annoying is I had not finished the wine that was still in my glass and had paid for when he took my entire glass away. Food was o.k. Will not return. "

  • "Venice is always a good time. They have a roast wild boar & papardelle special that is just fantastic. It is always noisy and crowded, and occasionally the servers make mistakes, but it's great all the same. The wine list is "noteworthy" for it's great length and abundance of Italian wines."

  • "We had reservation at 6:45 PM, made on OpenTable. We were not seated until 7:30PM. We inquired at the hostess station twice without an explanation or apology for not being seated at our reservation time. We were a party of 3 and we witnessed 2 other parties of 4 arrive after us and they were seated promptly upon arrival. We then had a waiter that had absolutely no interest in customer service. We of course knew what we wanted to order before we were seated, we had plenty of time to study the menu. Our waiter seemed annoyed that he had to wait on us. We had to ask the for wine list twice. Waiter brought the wrong dessert. Overall, food was ok, but experience and service horrendous."

  • "THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT AS ALWAYS. THE RISTORANTE WAS VERY BUSY AND THE WAIT STAFF RUSHED. THE NOISE LEVEL IS A LITTLE MUCH, THUS HARD TO HAVE A CONVERSATION. THE TABLES WERE TIGHTLY ARRANGED, SO MOVEMENT WAS RESTRICTED.."
