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.

There's an amazing view with the sun setting over the Boston skyline. Most small group tables have a waterfront view, which is well worth the drive out of Boston

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.

Went for Restaurant Week Boston. Great value $20.00 three course lunch. Great view of river/bay. We had a late lunch and the service was a little rushed. I think they wanted to set up for dinner. Food was good as always.

I have dined at Venzia's for many years and it continues to be one of my favorite restaurants. Every meal is spectacular! I was there this time, meeting with friends, during restaurant week and we all had something different for our entree and we were all very happy. The casear salad which we all had was yummy and it was hard to decide what to have for dessert...they were all soooo good...I did have a bite of each. A great 3 course meal for lunch for $20....how can you beat that!

I will be back.....

Every summer I make it a point to, at least once, enjoy a nice dinner on a patio overlooking the water. This is my second year in a row going to Venezia and it will be my go-to place from now on. The patio is lovely, the waitress was attentive and friendly, and it's a fun lively restaurant. I had the tuna and salmon tartare for my appetizer, it was excellent. We got to watch the sunset while enjoying our meal on a beautiful summer night, what could be better?

Went with 2 other couples. Hadn't been in a while. Beautiful night and even better food. Authentic Italian. Great preparation and large portions. A bit loud (flat ceiling and floor to ceiling windows) but bearable. Odd that it was busy at 6:30 on a Saturday and then thinned out around 8ish.

It was quite before a large party was seated near us. Otherwise, it was an excellent experience. Since I added it was my birthday to the reservation, I expected an acknowledgement that it was my birthday.

Great Restaurant and managed very well. We showed up 10 minutes early for our reservation and they took us without a hesitation to our table. Normally you expect to sit down in the lobby for a couple minutes while they get it ready but there was none of that. The view of the water and Marina was nice also the great old Gas Tanks. Looking over the menu and saw quite a few dishes that were on our radar. We put in an order for apetizers and they were literally on our table within 5 minutes. I almost questioned whether or not they even cooked them how fast they came out. They were absolutely the best Calamari I have ever had. We got the Prime Rib Special which was awesome but I would have done something different for vegetables that string beans. Great place and worth going to.

Nice large menu with many options, excellent apps & dinners! The pan-seared scallops were A+. Service was attentive & quick. The view was beautiful. My ONLY complaint would be that it was extremely loud / echoing, so it was difficult to have a nice catch-up conversation between friends.

Overall great view, food & service.

Whenever we entertain out of town guests, we like to take them to a Boston harbor view restaurant, and over the years Venezia has become our go to restaurant as it offers so much more than "just" the beautiful harbor view. From the free and ample parking to the soft colors of the airy dining room, from the impeccable service to the well executed and varied menu, we always can count on the Venezia dining experience to please our guests. Not everyone is up for seafood and Venezia also has a nice selection of beef, chicken, lamb, pasta and pork dishes that all are very good. To date, the restaurant has never failed to deliver a memorable dining experience for us and our guests.
