Reason for the 4 stars- service was a little slow and also i was served a cocktail from the bar in a cracked glass.

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.

Greeted warmly and seating quickly. Beautiful view of the water from our table.
Started with the minestrone soup and had the mushroom chicken risotto.
Others had veal Marsala and the fish special.
I did have coffee but I had no room for dessert because the portions are large! And so am I.

Throughout the years Venezia has pleased us. It does get noisy at times when very busy, especially when large groups are celebrating. Menu has change over the years, but they still serve some of my favorite veal dishes.

I had been to Venezia several times in past years and remembered how much I liked being there. Recently, when a friend was looking for a nice place to go, I suggested Venezia. I hoped that it was still a good choice; and it did not disappoint. It has been redecorated beautifully since my last visit. We found ourselves watching a gorgeous sunset while having a delicious meal. This was followed by an evening of enjoying the music and dancing in the lounge. We plan to come back soon, Thank you!

Great Restaurant, but overly loud - not the Restaurant's fault, just too many blow-hards present that night .It's a bit pricey, but you have to push the boat out now and again.

Food tasted like banquet food served in bulk. Views were good but the restaurant was very loud- my date and I were sitting right next to each other and had to shout. Prices were high and although portion sizes were good, the quality of the food was mediocre. Will not return.
