Literally one of the best places I’ve dined in Jersey. The food was not only terrific but unique. The passion in what went in to the menu is realized when you discuss the items with the owner and his equally engaged staff. The service was truly exceptional. I can’t say enough about the attentiveness of the entire group and taking the extra effort to make everything special.
Definitely remember to BYOB (wine store a couple of blocks up the road) to complete this excellent experience.
Ciao-
I will be back ...

The best
Bruno, Eddie, and Leo run a fantastic restaurant. Service is always great, food is outstanding. They put a different twist on classics but don’t worry you won’t be disappointed. Their fish is the best! My husband doesn’t bother looking at the menu he just asks what’s the best fish dish is that day and orders it. He is still a happy camper.

We have dined at Cafe Venezia many times and are never disappointed by the superb presentation , the specials and quality of food , the terrific and attentive service and the benefit of byob.
The recent addition of a room for larger parties is another step in the evolution of this Fine Restaurant
Cafe Venezia is the combination of all of the above and LEO who rocks!

I was once again so pleased by my dinner at Cafe Venezia. I had the mixed salad with goat cheese, pears, and raspberry vinaigrette which was delicious, Chicken Bella Vista with portobello mushrooms, roasted peppers, and fontina cheese which was excellent, and the decadently yummy Tartuffo for dessert. Service was exceptional as always. Highly recommend!

We love Cafe Venezia - the food is wonderful and the service may be the best we've gotten anywhere since we moved to NJ! Despite the fact we'd rather keep it a secret, we highly recommend Cafw Venezia for great Italian food in a non-chain, neighborhood setting - thanks Leo and team!

We dine at Café Venezia relatively frequently - we went for our anniversary and everything went ok - the food was good (but nothing special - we were slightly disappointed on this visit) (just being honest). Will certainly go back again to see if it was just an "off" night.

That being said, the owners/chef/staff are generally excellent and perhaps we're being too critical because it was a "B" instead of an "A+".

For anyone who hasn't been there yet, it's certainly worth a visit to decide for yourself. Everything is done fresh, homemade pasta, fish brought in daily from NYC, etc. We want this to be our "place to go" for special occasions - our meal for 2 was about 85 dollars including tip (no coffee/dessert).
