We tried this restaurant for the first time and we had a nice evening with friends. The service was thoughtful and eager to please. Our water and wine glasses were always tended to and extra ice served upon request. Our appetizers and dinners were very tasty and we enjoyed a special fish entree call Zwei, a delicate flavored fish from Hawaii. There was only 1 serving left so the rest of us had to savor a forkful. The escargot appetizer was fabulous and the string bean salad was different in a texture way, tasty and crunchy. A nice dining experience.

There is a new space that was recently opened. They put all the larger parties there. On 8ft folding long tables from Costco!!! No one in that room was happy. Need round tables for groups like this. It was not fun to sit four per side. Too bright in there as well. No ambiance. Need to get this part together ASAP. Food was very good. Service a little scattered. Will go back but need to know the back room is changed.

I love this restaurant and the owner is a lovely man who is really a foodie. This restaurant has a good vibe and the service is terrific.. I come here at least once a week with my family or a date. The food is amazing and the stuffed artichokes ate the best I have ever eaten...

Our party of 6 really enjoyed the meal. The appetizers were delicious as were the main course and desserts. We have been here at least a dozen times and we have always enjoyed our meals!!! The staff and owners are very personable and very accommodating.

We had a wonderful time. They are very attentive, accommodating and service oriented. Brought the children's dishes out first -we didi not have to ask. Excellent food. We will be back.

Our first time. The food was very good and the portions very large. The server was friendly and helpful with any special orders, like a change of pasta type. The Broccoli Rapi was especially well cooked and flavorful. We will be back!

We were a group of 15. Initially res. Was made for 10, as open table does’t take more on the website. I contacted the restaurant a week in advance to increase the number.

Upon arrival (res for 12:30), no one greeted us, we were the only customers at the restaurant, our table was set, and we just took our sits. In a while a waitress showed, took some drink orders, but we had to ask for menus, non was offered.
Later Leo, our waiter ( maybe the owner?) took our orders, he was friendly, however at 1:30, an hr after our Res., we only had our salads served. Very slow service, mix up with the orders.

The food was very good, portions fine, but service was slow, despite the fact that there was only one other table occupied beside our group. There was also a mix up with the bill, 2 extra plates were charged, which we corrected.

All in all a mixed experience, wouldn’t recommend it for larger groups.

We have been to Cafe Venezia at least 6 times and it never disappoints. Food is always fresh. Service is generally also great but this time it was a bit slow- took over an hour to get our entrees. I’m guessing there was a mix-up but dinner was delicious as usual.
