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!!!!

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.
Always great food and service
The food preparations and presentation were remarkably outstanding. The chef captured the essence of each ingredient and produced a masterful combination of healthy and flavorful delights! Will be back!
Outstanding: Both food and service superb. From the burrata salad to start to our main courses, Zuppa de Peche with lobster tails, and cod oreganata all were prepared exquisitely and with extraordinary flavor. Portion size and presentation all above board. Service could not be better. Whether it is date night or special occasion, this is a neighborhood gem.
Great food and hands on owner. Very attentive and welcoming. Great experience. Clam sauce is amazing!
It was a fantastic meal. Everything was terrific!!!
Food was delicious . The service was excellent
Outdoor dining under large tent. Tables spaced nicely apart. Food delicious and staff was very accommodating.
Food was good . Generally found staff not complying to Covid rules . Some staff had their mask not covering their nose or they would walk outside the tent and walk back in without a mask . Did not feel safe at all . Customers would walk through the tent without masks and staff did not advise them to put on mask . Have always loved the food and service and unfortunately my next visit will be after Covid.
