Great evening with friends over a delicious meal. The layers of tastes in each of the dishes was very good! Worth the drive to meet our friends half way!
Fantastic dinner! Great Service!
The food was excellent. Thank goodness it was because the service was less than desirable. A server wasn’t assigned to our table so whoever happened to walk by and actually stop is who served us. We didn’t byob (which can sometimes extend a dinner experience) and we were there for almost 2 hours, that’s how long the food took and how slow the service was. Our beverage order got forgotten twice, only to be remembered finally by the front hostess (who was the most attentive in the restaurant). No one offered a dessert menu and despite flagging someone down for a check, we never received it and had to go to the front of the restaurant to seek it out. You might guess they were short staffed but the owners were floating around all over talking to customers. We won’t be going back since the service was so poor and I wouldn’t recommend it to others.
Awesome food. Had the Pappardelle with Lamb Ragu and fresh Ricotta cheese. Also had some long hot peppers with potatoes, onions and mushrooms (all sliced thin) that was both different and delicious. Staff super friendly too.
Restaurant was crowded and we had a reservation. I changed the number of people on our reservation 2 days prior but unfortunately the restaurant did not receive the update. Regardless, they were very accommodating. My only issue was that service was extremely slow. I think our server was partially responsible, especially with dessert, because after 20 minutes of waiting we asked for it again and she came out with it. Our dinner and appetizers were also slow to come out but they were very busy with restaurant AND takeout which was not a pre-Covid issue. I am noticing with many restaurants that the takeout is very robust and definitely impacts wait times if dining in the restaurant. Food was delicious!!!
Awesome as always!
This is one of our go to places. The service is always warm & friendly, and the food is delish.
The owners were genuinely happy to welcome us back to indoor dining. Food and service were the good. Never missed a beat!
Bruno made us feel very welcome, great host we had a memorable Italian meal,
Cafe Venezia is one of our favorite restaurants. After getting our Covid vaccines, we decided to try indoor dining for the first time in over a year. It was great to be back, and we were welcomed like old friends. Due to the pandemic, there were only a few other occupied tables, and so it was quieter than in the past. We missed Leo, the owner, who makes everyone feel special and we look forward to seeing him again on later visits.
As always the food is fantastic and the service is great as well. I forgot to bring my wine from home and the host offered to run to the store up the street and pick up a bottle for our table. Top notch ! Best Italian food outside of Italy .
Amazing food, amazing hospitality!
Great food, friendly service! Well spaced tables.
Excellent food and service. I started with the homemade burrata, which was very fresh and tasty. The veal parm was excellent and served on the bone. The sauce is so rich and thick that it really complimented the buttery breading of the veal. A+. I got dessert, which i never do because of how good everything else was. The souffle was delightful. It was more of a lava cake than a traditional chocolate souffle but it still tasted great. Small touches that i liked was that they had separators between the tables so you felt COVID safe and they have a parking lot so parking is simple. Its a BYOB so cost is reasonable too.
Dinner was superb! Starters artichoke with tomatoes, followed by chicken parmigiana, delicious Orca fish special followed by tartufo, affogato and cappuccino.. Service and atmosphere good for date night, family celebration, or just a night out.
Excellent food, wonderful service and the owners are the nicest! They have the tables separated with attractive screens and they have installed air filtration systems.
Make reservations now you will not be sorry!
Always a great time. The food was awesome and the staff is always personable and makes us feel very welcome. Will definitely be heading back!!!!

Always excellent service and fabulous meals!
Outstanding food and service.
Great food always
Cafe Venezia is one of our local favorites. Owners are wonderful and friendly. Food always amazing
portions weren’t overwhelming. everything was delicious and came out in a timely manner. we were also given a free appetizer because the 4 of us ordered the burrata and the owner didn’t want us to not have enough since the burrata is a smaller app. very nice!
Everything about our dinner at this restaurant was wonderful! The owners have taken every precaution to make indoor dining safe and yet feel intimate, with tables set far apart from one another, privately screened off. There were oversized air purifiers at both ends of the dining room as well. The menu is superb, offering a wide variety of appetizers, salads, pasta dishes, chicken, veal, beef, and seafood entrees. A lovely assortment of desserts capped off a delicious meal. Highly recommended!
The best veal parmesan i ever had and I've had a lot of veal parmesan! Overall the food is outstanding service is even better my new go-to spot!
Always enjoyable. Our favorite place.
Excellent service. The owners make you feel like family and their pride in what they do is evident in every detail. Great food and experience.
The owners are wonderful. The food is amazing. The place is clean and felt very comfortable eating dinner inside.
New Year’s Date
Wonderful dinner Christmas Eve. Amazing food and the staff were so friendly. A very enjoyable experience.
This was our first visit on a Saturday evening. The service was excellent and the food yummy! The owners friendly interaction with customers makes this a new favorite for us for Italian food.
Cafe Venezia never disappoints!
The food and staff are exceptional!
Food was delicious and service was amazing!
We really enjoyed our visit here. The bread basket is delicious...hard to admit, but we even ate 2 baskets full. We started with clams in white wine and garlic....some of the bread went to sopping up the delectable sauce! Entrees were veal with mushrooms and chicken martini, Parmesan crusted. We were glad to ask if we could have pasta instead of the potatoes and vegetables. Portions were large and we enjoyed the meal again for lunch the next day. It is a BYOB which saves a lot. Prices are very reasonable here though. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Absolutely amazing food and the owners are so nice and accommodating! The grouper special was delicious I’m still thinking about days later and the mussels clams and burrata were to die for. Save the bread for the sauce or just drink the broth like its soup like my boyfriend did! Can’t wait to go back!
Whether it is a special event or just date night, always a delight. Great food, great service and very pleasant atmosphere. Large portion size and beautiful presentation, always. Staff friendly and will go to great lengths to make your lunch, dinner, or party a delight.
