    This is a lovely neighborhood spot subtly divided into 4 sections with mostly booths giving it a quiet, private, comforting feeling. We came very early and by the time we left at about 5:30 on a weeknight the place was almost full. The carbonara and fettuccine alfedo were both very good. Great service and excellent menu choices. We'll be back.

    Red sauce was excellent, better then expected. Meatballs & short ribs were absolutely delicious. My daughter ate her entire bowl of Mac & Chs (which never happens). I had the Alfredo which was good but a little too thick, but overall everything was excellent and we will Be back.

    Only our second time since it’s under new ownership. The first time was good. This time the pasta was mushy, so mushy I couldn’t eat it. The chicken parmigiana was ok, kind of flavorless though. It was disappointing for sure.

    I was looking forward to trying the new Venetian. I had heard good reviews and was kind of excited that the new owner runs Trade in Boston. Unfortunately the night was disappointing. Mainly because of the service but there was a miss on the food that kind of damped our expectations. I’m not a big bread eater but the bread basket was a few cold slices of nondescript scali bread with over salted whipped butter. I was anticipating something more interesting but was reserving judgement until our orders arrived. We took a little time deciding on our orders and it became clear shortly afterwards that our waitress was anxious to turn over our table. She didn’t refill our water, didn’t ask if we wanted another cocktail (we did), our entrees arrived almost simultaneously with the appetizer and she asked once in passing if everything was ok as she was on her way to another table. However, she was right there with the check the minute our plates were cleared. The owner was circulating in the dining room which was very nice to see, stopped by our table to ask if we enjoyed our mussels appetizer- which was very good - and we appreciated that attention. The ambiance is much improved from the old days although we were seated close to the kitchen and a corner booth where the staff was congregating. It was uncomfortable. It just felt like the night was a miss for us since I was expecting a more relaxed and well paced experience. I’m hoping another night, another table and another waitress would make a difference.

    Reservation was made for our 20th wedding anniversary. We arrived a bit early, greeted immediately and brought to our table within minutes. Our server was Excellent, very attentive and personable. The food was incredible. We ordered the strip steak and the baked cod. Cooked perfectly and delicious ! We also loved the spicy broccoli and the meatballs that we selected for the appetizer. Thank you so much. We highly recommend and will return.

    Food was excellent. We had beet salad, Sunday Gravy, Chicken Parmigiana and Shrimp Scampi. All were delicious. The only thing that was sub-par was the bread. It was fresh but tasteless. The butter, strangely enough, had very little flavor and left me wondering if it was kind of margarine. The three others in my party agreed.

    The Venetian is a favorite of my and I. We love the ambiance, the old school Italian feel and the background music is never loud. The music is throwback and fits the scene. We have never had a bad meal and every server we have had are always pleasant.

    The food was SO good. I had the Lobster Fra Diavolo and I wish I could have eaten the entire dish it was delicious. My boyfriend had the Sunday Gravy and he loved it as well. The sangria was a bit watery but the Riesling I had was great. Overall I can’t wait to go back. My server was very sweet and amicable and the staff smiled at us with every opportunity they had. Great place and thank you everyone!

    Waitress Jan was awesome! Friendly, efficient , everything you want in a good waitress. The food was excellent. The bean soup is a meal in itself, as well as , the eggplant appetizer. Chicken Marcella was very good too! The only flaw, was the nutty Irishman coffee was served in a glass with no whip cream. Just was odd. But it tasted good.
