Venezia tucked away from city life, and tucked into the memory of every guest we’ve had the pleasure of welcoming to our waterfront restaurant and ballroom.

We celebrated my husband's 60th birthday. The food was terrific, and the service was as well. My son had the special, lobster ravioli, and is still raving about it three days later. My husband says they make a great Manhattan, too!

This is a cute little spot. The food is overpriced but decent. Service is exceptional. Vibe is good! Lobster in scampi sauce is $50. Not recommended at all. Wasn’t near good enough to cost that much. Go with baked stuffed or diavolo.

While our waitress, Tarin, was great -- especially since she had several large tables, the food was nothing to write home about. One of the guests in our party sent her meal back because it was actually tasteless. This particular person is not picky at all and would not send something back unless it was truly inedible. The 2 1/2 baked stuffed lobsters were ok but skimpy on the stuffing and not exactly hot. The stuffed chicken was well received. The table ordered 3 desserts to share and the creme brulle was actually a dish of scrambled eggs!
Maybe we should try this restaurant on a regular weekend, instead of on New Years

There were 10 of us having dinner on Fri night. Had a great round table with a view. The food was excellent for everyone but the service was not. Granted it was busy that night but that’s no excuse. Sever was not that attentive meaning he should of made sure everyone seated had all the cocktail orders placed at the same time instead of running to bar after a few orders. Also he never asked anyone if interested in apps. Just took the dinner orders. Well, the food came out nice and hot and no one complained. Probably go back again ,hopefully not with that server!

We come every December as a group because you are very accommodating getting us a round table for example, waiter was very good, attentive and very professional but very congenial. We enjoyed our variety of meals and apples. Portion sizes large that some people took home doggie bags.
We had a great time and come during the year as well but not our yearly group.

Recommend it to others in fact my husband is returning next week with some work friends.o

Venezia is always a good choice for an elegant, but not too expensive meal. The food is good and the service is always fantastic. The atmosphere at the bar is relaxed and friendly, so it is a nice place to meet friends for a drink as well. It gets crowded, so reservations are a good idea. Plenty of parking, too.

This restaurant is unique in that it gives a spectacular panoramic view of Boston across the water.
Our server was pleasant, efficient and answered questions about the menu. Appetizers and dinner were well timed between courses. Good selection of Italian fare on the menu, without being overwhelming.

My only disappointment was that my fish portion was a bit small and slightly overcooked. I ordered the stuffed salmon ($30.00) and it looked like a 6oz portion with just a bit of stuffing on top of the filet. The other three people in my party, however, were very satisfied with the quality and quantity of their meals. Two ordered the sirloin and the other ordered chicken Marsala. I was told the steaks were perfectly cooked. The Marsala came with a variety of mushrooms and the sauce was not too sweet, as some Marsala sauces tend to be. I was the only one who ordered dessert. I had the chocolate molten lava cake and it was awesome!! It was served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, with deep rich dark chocolate flavor that would satisfy any chocoholic!

I really enjoy the restaurant for its warm ambiance and view. I would definitely return.

I was there in a party of 16. So this is a more personal experience, not a group thing. I ordered a steak, medium, came out medium well/well. They did come over to apologize, offered another steak, but at that time I'd be eating by myself. So I refused a new steak. They did not remove my steak or even offer too from receipt even though it was not eaten. I paid a good price for the steak and wanted it the way I like it. They also charge to slice the cake you bring it, per slice. That price was given up front and agreed to by the person who called and asked about it. Just thought it to be tacky from a pricey restaurant.
Overall my experience was nice. All others said their food was absolutely delicious. The waiter, Roberto, was absolutely fantastic.
