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!
As always everything about Cafe Venezia is OUTSTANDING!
Italian food is absolutely amazing - the dining experience brings me back to Italy.
Warm, friendly service with delicious food and creative specials! A must-visit restaurant for family meals, work lunches or date nights.
Food and service were very good. Owners are very warm and so willing to please.
We loved Cafe Venezia. We were greeted by Bruno and were made to feel welcome from the moment we walked in. The wait staff was excellent, polite and attentive. The food was beyond delicious. Cafe Venezia is our new favorite restaurant in New Jersey and we can't wait to return.
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).
Absolutely amazing. Great food. Great service. Everyone there makes you feel as though you are family, truly exceptional.
Second time here and looking forward to the third. Martinsville has another gem.
Birthday dinner for mom. Appetizers and dessert were excellent, dinner and presentation left alot to be desired.
Great food always
This restaurant is always over the top in terms of food, service and hospitality. You feel like family here.
Dennis. S just ate there the other night another great dinner unbelievable hospitality place makes you feel like family
Again, another outstanding dinner. The staff is just amazing and make you feel at home. Food was excellent with a huge choice of selections.
Food and service were Excellent. Staff were very welcoming and made special effort to make sure that you were satisfied.
Excellent food and service. A rare find, definitely a place to go for dinner.
Friends wanted to try Cafe Venezia. I readily agreed even though I had just been there over the weekend to celebrate my anniversary. The menu is oh, so delicious. I always want to try at least two or three of the entrees. Tonight I had the veal, my husband had shrimp, our friends had lobster ravioli and bronzini (a white flaky fish). All of our dishes were superb.
Service was excellent and we will most definitely return. An added plus is that this restaurant is a byob.
Been here a few times its always been great food. The owners personally make sure everything is great and go out of their way.
Leo and Bruno are wonderful hosts. They know how to make you feel welcome. The food is always outstanding. Their specials are terrific. I have brought three different friends there in the last four weeks and all of them loved the food. I am never disappointed when I go to Cafe Venezia.
Perfect - good food, just the right amount of attention from staff!
Cafe Venezia’s hosts and servers make you feel like you came to a family dinner.Everything is delivered with home pride. Freshly prepared , tasty and served hot. The food is delicious !
It can be your favorite local place, a special occasion celebration or gathering with friends. BYOB . Bravo!
Service was great and the food it’s always very very good
We tend to choose Café Venezia whenever we want to "celebrate" and often try to introduce other people to a predictably excellent dining experience. We weren't disappointed. The prices run on the high side (they went up a few dollars since our last dinner out) but the exceptional quality of the dishes makes it worthwhile. The menu is varied and the specials are usually interesting!
I believe that this might be the third or fourth restaurant to inhabit this space. But look no further - this one is a keeper. Every patron is made to feel important as the owner, Leo, made sure to stop at every table to greet diners. His passion for his food is very evident in the way he delivers the specials. The food is so interesting. What you might think is an ordinary dish comes out with the most unique spices and flavoring and is presented in such a delightful way that you cannot wait to dig in. My husband had the crab cake for his appetizer and could not stop raving. His snapper dish had 3 huge scallops perched atop of it . It was marvelous. I had a special string bean appetizer with gorgonzola cheese that came highly recommended by Leo. And was he ever right. The appetizer was very different and the dressing was great! The restaurant is very tastefully decorated and charming and the service is impeccable. So my advice to everyone is don't walk to Cafe Venezia - RUN.
Leo makes sure your dining experience is perfect. Best place to eat in town.
Cafe Venezia is a great place. This is my third or fourth visit since the new owners took over several years ago and it seems like the menu has continued to improve. The staff is very helpful. We chose to split all of our menu choices three ways so we could sample the food and they were happy to oblige. From appetizer to dessert, it was delightful.
It was Mother’s Day and very crowed. Not a good not to review any restaurant
For years 4 to 6 times a month I have patronized restaurants and from those experiences I base my opinion on Cafe Venezia . I have been to this restaurant now about 12 times in the last year and have never been disappointed. No matter what the selection the quality and the presentation has been superb. Because of this consistency and the customer interface that Eddie, Leo and Bruno bring to the table I will be increasing my visits.
Expect to pay a little more but in return receive fresh ingredients prepared as well or better as any restaurant regardless of price.
I would highly recommend this restaurant when a no fail dinner experience is a must.
Cafe venezia...is not it. Meal started with a calamari with balsamic ginger reduction in a taco shell bowl which rested on a little bit of mashed potatoes. Huh?!?! It's an Italian restaurant. It was downhill from there. I didn't feel the love in this food at all. But the restaurant was full and had great reviews. I don't think it would be so full if central Jersey had North Jersey standards, especially not for $25-30 a plate.
Good place to go
Really enjoyed the food and service. Nice ambiance. For those not familiar (which I wasn’t), they do not sell Wine and it is BYOB. So bring your favorite bottles and enjoy.
Arrived at 7pm received menus at 7::30pm
Waiter took orders at 8:02 received appetizers at 8:45 pm left the premises at 10pm.....UNACCEPTABLE!!
Great meal Byob , excellent service . Fast becoming the Restaurant of choice for many .
Everytime I visit this place they have amazing special entrees. This time for me it was the chicken breast covered with crab. Amazing, simply amazing.
FOOD WAS EXCELLENT AND SERVICE TOO. WE REALLY APPRECIATE THE EVENING DINNER.
Leo and the crew are always wonderful hosts. You feel like family when you’re dining there the food was great as always. Can’t wait to go back.
We always enjoy our meals at CV - this occasion was slightly disappointing because the food wasn't quite hot enough, but it was tasty.
I was our first time there because we could never get a last minute reservation. A sure sign of a good restaurant. It was worth the wait. Wonderful Italian dishes and the tuna tartare appetizer was exceptionally good! We'll be back.
It was our first time here. We went for Easter dinner. The menu selection and specials offered
a wide choice of options. Most of us had some combination of pasta and seafood -- all were
excellent. Calamari was fresh and tasty in a vinaigrette presentation. The staff was very friendly and did a good job good in making sure all went well. We definitely plan to return.
