As usual, Venezia hit all the right notes. From the moment you walk in you can tell the evening is going to be special with the first greet by the staff. They make it look so easy, and personable. The food was great. The dessert was amazing, and the bottle of wine was the best. Can’t wait to go again.

This was our first time to Venezia. The food was excellent and service was very good, despite the large crowds. The only drawback was the noise level. It was almost impossible to have a conversation with our party of 4 without shouting to eachother.

Beautiful view, menu was limited, would have liked a few more options. Food was good, a little overpriced. Surf & turf was good. Desserts were a good selection. Waiter was very attentive. Noise level made it difficult to talk without shouting.

Ambiance, service and drinks were great. Calamari was very chewy. Venezia risotto was disappointing - very soupy, rice not fully cooked, with Shrimp & scallops pre-cut into little pieces. Very poor quality food for the price - you are basically paying for the Boston skyline view.

I think I've written too many reviews for Venezia's! It's one of my very favorite restaurants. I always have a great meal and I'm so glad I can book an outdoor table on Open Table these days. There aren't many places that let you do that, usually first come, first served. I had one of favorite dishes too - the shrimp scampi. Always save room for desserts.....there are always fabulous.

Seated at window table as requested. Appetizers came out promptly and were delicious. Surf and turf special was excellent - prime rib and half a lobster. It was a generous portion and very tasty!

Great experience at old school Italian restaurant on water. My only negative is that the outdoor seating is in the flight path, so it is extremely noisy. Otherwise, a great experience. Wonderful service too.

Service and food were delightful, but the side veranda feels very isolated and not very scenic, nor does it convey the warmth and charm that is Venezia. There were deliveries and the parking lot is not what one comes to Venezia for.

VENEZIA does not disappoint! We were celebrating a birthday and the entire staff could not have been more receptive! From the moment we arrived it was very busy, as a wedding was taking place in their beautiful banquet facility. However, the restaurant functioned smoothly. The hostess was delightful, as was Chris the bartender in the lounge. We had a fabulous table by the window with a beautiful view of the City. Each of our appetizers were delicious. Mussels, Shrimp Cocktail, Chowder and Classic Caesar. When our dinner’s arrived everything was cooked to perfection! Two of us enjoyed specials which were awesome, as well as the Chicken Piccata and Filet au Poivre. Their wine selection is always good, and we liked the option to order half bottles of wine with our different meals! I don’t recall our waiters name but he was attentive and efficient! I would highly suggest if you haven’t yet, you should definitely visit Venezia, you won’t be disappointed!

Normally when I dine here I am 100% satisfied. Yesterday I went for lunch and I was extremely disappointed. The crab cakes were super thin and just awful tasting. I have had them before here but yesterday no words can describe. Next I ordered steak tips with parmesan risotto except I was served rice! Where is the risotto? I chased a fruit fly the entire time off my water glass and noticed a light bulb over my table filled with bugs. I was embarrassed because I chose this location for a business lunch. The server was attentive and pleasant and the drinks and dessert salvaged the remaining portion of my lunch. Where is the chef from my last visit? On vacation?

We reserved a week in advance for outdoor seating since we were dining with elder folks. Outdoor dining was a bit chilly around 6:30pm. They try their best to accommodate with heat lamps but can only move them to certain distance due to fire regs. The ambiance/view was nice. service was nice. The food was tasty. The food came at reasonable time even though the restaurant was full due to special event. The price was a bit steep for the quality, but we enjoyed the overall experience. Thank you!
