We have dined here several times and took a couple the other night and they raved about the food too. We'll be back and so will our friends. Great food... great service, a real Italian gem.

My wife and I eat out often and found our food fresh, tasty and presentation was great. The friendliness and attentiveness of the servers, and staff, simply said was terrific. Made you feel very welcome and your dining choice of their restaurant meant something. Would recommended this to anyone I know.

This was our first time and we can't wait to return. We felt very welcomed by Eddie and Leo. They were extremely friendly and made us feel like regulars, which by the way, we intend to be.
Everything we had from appys, entrees and desserts were delicious. We loved the calamari with sausage and hot peppers. Burrata was probably the freshest and best we ever had and veal melted in your mouth. Planning on bringing some friends there soon. Looking forward to another delicious meal!

We love Café Venezia. We have been there well over a dozen times. The food is excellent; always fresh. They even get the vegetables crunchy and their roasted potatoes are the best! I even asked for the preparation technique. I recommend Café Venezia to all of our friends.

I heard about this restaurant for quite some time but could never book a table. Took a chance on the storm night this past Saturday and was able to obtain a reservation. I will say the five star reviews were well deserved. The owner Leo, made our table of four feel like old friends or family. He possesses a true passion for his restaurant and customers. The food/portions were excellent and the price for the quality of food was reasonable. There is a somewhat formal feel when you first walk-in but that quickly changes to a totally relaxed dining experience. Will return very soon and hope now to become regular customers. Outstanding job by all at the restaurant.

I have been dining at Cafe Venezia since the beginning. The food is delicious and consistent. The service is excellent and the staff very attentive.
The only things that I noticed and the reason why I didn't give it a 5 are that the prices have gone up enough to make a difference, and the side veggies and potatoes (which I love) are smaller than they use to be!

Food was very good and we tried some dishes like the Fried Calamari Venezia that was delicious and prepared differently from most restaurants. Definitely worth the hour drive!

I have been to Café Venezia multiple times....actually its my go to place with my girlfriends & husband. I have always loved it. The owners are so welcoming, accommodating and friendly. This time we brought our in-laws who were visiting for the weekend. They honestly couldn't say enough good things about it, and continued to talk about it throughout the weekend. My father in-law is a hard one to please....and he gave it a thumbs up.

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 ...
