Wonderful neighborhood spotWonderful neighborhood spot and worth the drive if you must! Consistently great cuisine and friendly and attentive staff and management. The Lobster Ravioli is to die for!!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat service, poor viewWe had dinner there for our anniversary. The food was very good - we had the portabello mushroom appetizer that was fantastic, salad and chicken marsala. I would say it wasn't excellent but very good. The view, however, overlooked the supermarket parking lot. Not exactly the greatest ambiance in the world. I'd go back again and recommend it.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian at its bestI believe our experience at Venice this past Sunday was the best dining my wife and I have had in Denver. The service was second to none. Our food selections were fantastic and full of various flavors. Wine list is abundant and the mojito I had was perfect. Venice is a must. Enjoy6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently Great Food and ServiceThis is our third or fourth visit to this restaurant and it's always a treat. The food is the best we've found in Denver in terms of flavor and preparation, and the service is exceptional. Justin our waiter was excellent. Professional and courteous. Knowledgeable, and knew when to converse vs allow us our privacy. A real pro, which is sometimes hard to find in Denver.
Easily one of the best restaurants in Denver, year after year. Highly recommend!
Note: It was our anniversary and they offered us a complimentary glass of Muscato as a treat, which was delicious with our Tiramisu.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVenice is the best ItalianVenice is the best Italian restaurant in Denver! It is consistently superb and boasts beautiful decor6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden Local GemSome of the best selection of menu items I have seen. The food is outstanding, high quality!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVenice is wonderfulFood was great and our waiter (and other help) was exceptional.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways exceptionalWe have been celebrating our anniversary for the past 10 years at Venice and they never disappoint. They have a great staff, wonderful food and great attention to detail. I would tell everyone this is a wonderful restaurant.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMYummyMy husband and I were very impressed with the food! Our waiter was efficient but abrupt and did not crack a smile the entire time. We probably had the worst table in the house next to both the hostess stand and the kitchen, my chair was bumped no less than 5 times by waitstaff. If I was the owner I would consider getting rid of that table. Despite this, the food was great and next time we will request a table away from the door!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMlovely dining experienceThis is our favorite restaurant in the Denver area. It helps to have a favorite waiter who treats you like royalty, but that is part of the charm of a neighborhood restaurant, and Venice knows how to create a clubby, cozy feeling. The food is truly outstanding, as is the service. Veals dishes particularly stand out, but also the sea bass and pasta dishes are all delicious. We've tried many appetizers & salads & enjoyed them all; ditto for desserts. Did we mention their wonderful bread? The wine list is extensive and there are some quite reasonably priced gems on there. This restaurant is impressive in a low-key neighborhood gem sort of way!!!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceMy wife and I met friends, who drove from Colorado Springs, for an evening out. When we arrived our guests had been seated by the friendly staff. We had the luck of being taken care of by Christopher Robin. A seasoned and friendly server/host. Once again he dazzled our guests with his wine, menu and suggestions.
I'm a creature of habit and ordered the Veal Piccata. As they say in New York "You could cut it like butta"
I highly recommend Venice for dinner or lunch. A real gem in a shopping center!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMvery goodEverything very good. Vegetable napoleon, butternut squash ravioli great. Very friendly service.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed VeniceOver memorial weekend we wanted to take my folks to our favorite neighborhood Italian place, Chianti. Unfortunately they were closed, but I learned that the two Venice locations were of the same ownership. Venice Ristorante in Greenwood Village was the next closest and we were not disappointed! The service was fabulous-Steven was attentive, but not bothersome, even in a busy holiday atmosphere. The food was incredible- Mom had the chicken and mushroom pasta, which we voted our favorite at the table. And te atmosphere is, well, Venetian. Stucco walls and understated decoration make the place pretty without being pretentious.
We enjoyed Venice a lot!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat 40th birthday!We made a reservation for 12 to celebrate my 40th birthday, and our experience with Venice was just amazing. From the moment we walked in the door, we felt well cared for. They placed us in a semi-private room, and after the only other diners finished up we were the only ones in the room, which was nice. The food was divine, the wine was delicious, and service thoughtful and responsive. We highly recommend Venice, from a date night to a large celebratory party.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat serviceEverything was wonderful about our meal and the service was wonderful. However, it was very noisy and made it difficult to carry a conversation. We would go back but probably earlier to avoid the crowded dining room.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulAs always, Venice provided a fantastic meal and wine. One of the very best restaurants in Denver. Consistently, Venice provides a wonderful dining experience.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the halibut specialI had the halibut special and the chef really knows how to prepare fish to perfection. I know that I will get a great dish regardless of what I order when I eat at Venice.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrating getting togetherCelebrating getting together with 'old' friends, anniversaries, et al! This place is special for groups, as well as couples. Everyone commented on what great food and overall super evening it was. Keep it up Venice staff!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was awesomeEverytime we have gone here the food and service has been great. This occasion was our anniversary and Venice didn't disappoint.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMlovely lunchVenice has a lovely lunch menu, and as at most restaurants, the prices are better than at dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed our pasta dishes!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome FoodWe love this place, been coming for years. Prob some of the best food in Denver. And always great service.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love VeniceA new neighborhood discovery for my family. We will send many weekends working our way through their varied menu. Service is exceptional.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining at VeniceWe were celebrating my birthday. Seated immediately after very friendly greetings. Our waiter, Christopher, is a real pro! We were in no rush, and he saw to it that we weren't rushed. Too many young servers these days do not understand fine dining.
It's been a long time since we enjoyed such a professional and friendly atmosphere. Food and drinks were just fine.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEager to please!My husband and I had family in town and took them to Venice for dinner. They were running late, as many restaurants do. The difference was that the owner went beyond anyones expectations to please those kept waiting, serving Prosecco and offering appetizers once we were seated! This is a first class restaurant that knows how to treat their guests!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHave eaten here a few timesHave eaten here a few times and will eat here again. Love their Halibut.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNice 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 AMGreat food, server distractedThe welcome, food, and wine list were fantastic. Our server was either too overloaded with table or distracted by something else. I will go back hopiing this was an anomoly.5/15/2013 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 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 AMWe went here for Mother'sWe went here for Mother's Day, and the restaurant was packed. It took awhile for us to be waited on, but after our waiter took our order, he seemed very rushed and not eager to make this a relaxing experience for his guests. The food was definitely better than the service.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 AMThe food is always delicious!
ItThe food is always delicious!
It was my husbands birthday and he loved the complimentary dessert with the candle!5/5/2013 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 AMThe food is always excellent.The food is always excellent. Waiter's station was too large so service was below par. Waiter and manager could not get cooling under control so we were uncomfortable throughout the night.4/27/2013 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! The food and presentation were outstanding. Service was top rate. Will definitely return!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPlease contain your kids!The restaurant is very nice and the food was great. However, the noise level is pretty high and wasn't helped by kids running around unsupervised.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been here many timesWe have been here many times and always enjoy it. 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!!!
