The cuisine is always outstanding and the service beyond excellent. However, it’s the unparalleled views of the Boston skyline over the waters of Dorchester Bay that really sets this place apart. Go just before sunset. Go hungry. Leave HAPPY!

We made reservations for 5:30 and were seated immediately upon arrival. Service was excellent, food great and the view was awesome. Would highly recommend this restaurant. It was a wonderful compliment to our wine tasking experience across the parking lot.

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.

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.
