El servicio del mesero fue excelente, pero tardaron mucho con el carpaccio de res, mismo que no me cobraron, la comida esta dentro del promedio pero es caro para la calidad y cantidad. No es malo, es regular pero por eso no lo recomiendo, Existen mejores opciones dentro del The Venetian por ese mismo precio. Punto a favor poder sentarse en el área "exterior" a admirar la replica Plaza San Marcos... eso vale la pena, todo lo demás es ordinario con precio extraordinario.

My family and I were there this past Saturday for my daughter’s 21st birthday and were blown away by the service and acknowledgement. We were treated to a seafood platter from the owner of the restaurant for the occasion. Everything was absolutely amazing! We all had pasta dishes and they were all phenomenal. I would without a doubt dine there again as well as recommend to anyone to try out. We sat on the patio and the atmosphere was great with music playing in the background and all the people watching you could ask for.

We chose this place for our Thanksgiving meal. The food was good except for the instant mashed potato mix. Really! Can't peel a potato? Our waitress didn't come off genuine either. The other food and the atmosphere were both very good.

Good overall experience, food the most important part was tasteful. The portion , the temperature it was served was good.

Outdoor seating felt too close to each other.

The service was great. Took care of all the needs, provided inputs, suggestions. Gave the time we needed, not rushed into serving as well as finishing up.

Discrete inquiries on how we doing said that we were paid attention to.

This restaurant was recommended by my mother as she has been to it multiple time and supposedly had a great meal every time. I was super excited for this dinner at the Venetian, it was my first of many food reservations I had made for my vegas trip. We started with the calamari, it was excellent. He spicy marinara was perfect to dip. The bread was good and plenty. The gnocchi was recommended by my mother, and three out of 4 got it as their main course. The fourth was simple margherita pizza . Bolognese gnocchi was the style we all got. The sauce was amazing. The gnocchi not so much. It was more like mashed potato balls that were dense, not pillowy goodness that it should be. After our first bite all three looked at each other and just shook our heads. Not cool. We ate what we could and opted out of dessert (which actually didn’t look that tasty anyway). During dinner we were subjected to the sounds of the Venetian entertainment. It was way more annoying than pleasing. It was hard to have conversations. Good for people watching I guess. Too many good restaurants around to come back to this one.

Waiter was helpful and polite, friendly. Food was a little too salty but nicely presented. Great appetizers especially dry meat platter: to recommend. Two ladies at the side station talked loudly and about their personal business. We had to listen to them the entire main course. It ruined our romantic anniversary dinner and our experience.

Was recommended by a friend. We sat on the “patio” in The Venetian hotel St. Mark’s Square. Wait staff was very good. Friendly and good recommendations. Featured “Snitch” Chardonnay was very good. Burrata and prosciutto plate with truffle oil was excellent shared appetizer. My veal with polenta and wife’s Mediterranean Sea bass were both tasty.
Bonus treat was opera singer with violin and guitar accompaniment in the Square. The music was beautiful.

Good execution of quality food; good service except we need to keep asking server to refill our hot water.

Carpaccio beef is a bit thick. $18.95

Polipo patate (grilled octopus salad) $20.95
👍👍

Linguini Buranella (seafood) $32.95 very good👏👏 but a bit too much oil

Penning Ragu $22.95 Is average.

Canneloni with chicken $27.95 (a three course meal with either soup/ salad, entree and dessert) 👍👍👏

Grilled salmon with roasted veggies $27.95 very good.

We were seated in a perfect location. I asked the host after we waited 15 minutes if we had a server. He went over to a waitress at the end of the bar with short dark hair. Unfortunately she yelled loud enough for us to hear and see she was aggravated.
Apparently she was not told she had our table. I actually would of understood it was just a miscommunication but she did not handle the situation well. She disappeared in the back then walked past us to another table. When she finally came over no apology was extended she just asked said has anyone been here yet? (which she already knew) we said no, she proceeded to get water and bread. she left and came back only to introduce another waiter who would be our server. He was very attentive and our meals were delicious. The waitress definitely could of handled it better we were not nasty or annoyed with her at all. For whatever reason she did not want to wait on our table. She should be reminded it is not professional to yell at co-workers in view of dining patrons.

We had terrific Pinot Grigio to start. Ordered lunch specials -gnocchi and sauce was light and gnocchis fluffy. Also had the steak lunch special. That got a thumbs up too. Dessert was gelato and tiramisu, which was just okay. Maybe we were too full. Loved the atmosphere!

I took two girlfriends with me for lunch that have never been to this restaurant before and they live in Las Vegas and they were so impressed with the food in the presentation that they said this is their new favorite restaurant. There lobster tail with spaghetti is just amazing that’s the only thing I ever ate when I’m there along with a fabulous appetizers but everybody tried everyone’s dish and you never have a bad meal here.
