Parmigiana, Milanese, Francese, Marsala
16 years after having our wedding reception at Venere, we came back and it was even more amazing that way back when. This place is better than any I have been to in little Italy! The chicken Parmesan and chicken Francese were simply amazing.
We started out with capellini cake specials and baked clams. AMAZING!!! The service was top notch, very befitting of the grit associated with Nassau County, NY!
The deconstructed cream puffs were unreal! What a night!!!! This meal will hold us over when we get back to Tampa!
Everything about this place is fantastic. Warm service, hot food, great specials, can't miss!
The food and service was outstanding. Looking forward to the next time we can go
Once again Ristorante Venere did not disappoint. Our server Rosie was amazing! The food as usual was on point!! Was a wonderful birthday celebration including the delicious cannoli and the singing!!
Our waiter was very attentive, everything was lovely
Best Veal Francese I have had in a long time and the garlic bread was to die for. Wine list kind of pricey. Lovely ambience & friendly wait staff.
We love Venere and on Saturday we introduced Venere to some new people that had not been there before. All was very good and our friends were quite pleased.
I would like to know why I didn’t receive 100 points for my restaurant visit.
Best restaurant ever. We love this place.
My sister and I were visiting the area after MANY years. On my last visit - 2003? - I had a terrific dinner at Venere and decided to try it again. We had a meal beyond our expectations. The bronzino was perfectly cooked with the crisp skin I love. My sister had the eggplant parmigiana you only get in NY. Our server was so helpful and a delight to chat with. All the staff - from the host to the gentleman who delivered our meals, to the young man who checked to see if we needed this or that - were pleasant and attentive. If only we lived closer.
Top notch dining experience
A real neighborhood gem. Always welcoming and the wait staff is very accommodating. Love this place!!
Love Venere. We were sitting outside and it does get rather noisy. The waitstaff there is always very attentive and accommodating. It’s always a sure bet at Venere.
Our dinner was fabulous and the service was top notch.
our new favorite italian restaurant. Food is absolutely delicious. Baked clams, eggplant parm, veal parm were just scrumptious.
Always excellent. Great choices. Very homey.
We had a lovely delicious dinner with out of town guests. As usual service was wonderful and Clemente was extremely knowledgeable about the menu.
Food was excellent and delivered to our outdoor table fresh and hot. The outdoor area was acceptable but not weather protected. Fortunately it was a beautiful evening.
Nice, a little pricey but good food. Service is excellent, always on the button bringing what we asked for.
As always excellent everything. 😊
Venere is an old fashioned neighborhood restaurant with top quality dishes and superb serving to enhance your meal. Rosie, our waitress greets us with a warm smile and hug, happy to see us back after the pandemic. Our meal was delicious and well served. We look forward to returning soon. We are never disappointed at ristorante Venere.
Service was amazing. Food so good. Desert the best.
Good choices food was good
Table situated facing waiter staff traffic area a few feet away.
lobster tail oreganato was out of this world as was the penne sicilan eggplant. First time customer but will definitely be a repeat customer. So glad we went there
Great neighborhood restaurant. We ate outside and the service was wonderful, our waiter was great and the food was quite excellent. We will be back.
Our first visit with another couple. Easy parking; excellent, great food and service. Very accommodating re: the menu. We will be back even though it's a forty minute drive for us. Our waiter Sean (sp?) was tops. We'll ask to be seated so we get served by him next time.
Old School Italian vibe. Calamari Arabiatta excellent. Veal Chop Valdostana special was off the charts!
Food was delicious, however we were served our appetizer during our entree. Service was quite slow and we waited quite a while between courses. Also the tip (listed as a service charge on the check) was included, deserved or otherwise. Because service was less than expected we wouldn’t have given such a generous tip.
It was amazing! The baked clams are to die for and the staff are highly accommodating and friendly
Food was delicious, staff was very friendlyn
Service and food are always good. Very comfortable go to for us!
Our waiter was a no show at our table for close to 15 minutes and when he did show he barely looked us in our eyes and I had to practically yell to get his attention to order an appetizer. The food was mediocre, lacking flavor! Chicken scarpariello was very vinegary and the mussels marinara lacked garlic!
Even though the restaurant was busy and people seemed to know each other, it wasn’t appealing to our party.
I’ve been dining here for over 30 years. The pizza and the food in general has always been good, it’s a reliable neighborhood Italian restaurant
Awesome as always. Pork bracciole was a special and it did not disappoint!! Rosie a sweetheart as always. Such a pleasant dinner and atmosphere.
Food was better than average. Tables well spaced. Was uncomfortable with the waiter for the table next to us who was wearing his mask only covering his chin. So disrespectful.
We love this neighborhood gem. Food is always delicious. Our favorite waitress, Rosie is as good as they get.
Being from the Bronx NY Venere's has the charm of an old time neighborhood Italian restaurant
We haven't been there in years, but always had a good time and the food was excellent. Our server (wish I could remember her name) was personable, friendly, knowledgeable, and checked on us a few times to see if we needed anything and if the food was ok. Couldn't have asked for more
Food was delicious as always.
Service is wonderful!
