    We enjoyed our meals at Venezia. The shrimp carbonara and seafood risotto were so delicious, as was the haddock. It was very convenient to the Boston Harbor Distillery where we were attending a show. Our server was great as well. Will definitely go again!

    Very disappointed. I’ve eaten at Venezia several times. This was unusually a horrible meal. Eggplant Rolatini appetizer wasn’t breaded with minimal sauce. Not throughly cooked with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Bolognese sauce was grey with absolutely no flavor. It should have been sent back. Two of us made the mistake of ordering the bolognese. Third person in our party ordered scallops which looked excellent. Desert was a Carmel apple cheesecake. A small round of cheesecake approximately 4 oz

    The food was mediocre - the haddock was very bland and the potatoes were cold. I requested some lemon butter sauce for the fish to help with the lack of flavor and was stunned to be charged $5. There are too many good restaurants to visit before considering returning here. Excellent cocktails

    Enjoyed lunch with a visiting friend. The meal was really bland and quite average. We both didn’t finish our meals and my guest did not finish her chowder either. Neither of us opted for dessert since our pasta and risotto was tasteless. I go to Thai restaurant often, I was disappointed.

    Worst calamari I've ever had. Incredibly tough, overcooked. Barely any aioli sauce on it. 5 people eating this appetizer with 5 pieces left in dish that no one wanted..that's telling! Shrimp scampi was incredibly bland, not a spice in it. Such and easy dish to make magnificent. Again leftovers that no one wanted to take home. The caprese salad was very good. The waiter was incredibly inattentive for a party of 5. We barely saw him. When he was at the table, he was rushing us. The people who joined us for dinner no sooner sat down and he was asking what we wanted for appetizers?? He drops the dessert menu and then stands there and waits for our order. Honestly, can we have 5 minutes to decide. I understand about turning the table over but we sat with empty plates in front of us searching for the waiter for quite a bit. Went there many years ago, it was excellent. This was a total disappointment. We will never go back. There are so many better restaurants to spend your money and actually enjoy the food and the evening. Total fail!

    The food is awesome, and the service was immaculate. Our waiter was superb and so friendly. There was four of us and we had an amazing time. The only thing that I miss was the band that played music because usually after dinner, I'd go over and dance. I wish they bring the music back or at least get a Dj.

    Such a lovely dinner spot on the water. The interior is dated but the food makes up for it. Our fave is the Veal Parm which is a huge portion and excellent. They also have a lovely Barolo by the glass. Excellent. On a Friday night at 7:30 it was incredibly loud. Hard to hear my husband a times. The service was not the best as our waiter was spread rather thin. But it is hard to hire now so understandable. We will be back since we live nearby.

    Great food good service. An event spilled over into the edge of the dining room where I was sitting with my daughter. A few “gentlemen “ had a loud conversation that included a few F bombs. Not necessary. Staff allowed it to continue until I gave an unfriendly stare directed at the loud talkers. Other than that. Very nice place.
