Lovely evening with beautiful Boston skyline view.
Good very good but swordfish special ( topped with lobster abd grape tomatoes) a bit pricy at $44

The short ribs entrée was lackluster. It didn't look or taste like short ribs and the risotto was not risotto, it was a long grain rice type side that was undercooked.
The scallop dish (which I modified to omit the whipped potato) and asked for double veggies but was told it would be a separate charge ;-( Also, only 4 scallops to the dish for the price seemed very high.
The other 2 diners didn't care for their meals.
I hadn't been in years and suggested this restaurant and I feel bad I made this suggestion.

Halibut ($44) was overcooked completely. Should have sent it back but didn’t want to wait 20 minutes for another dinner. The double stuffed potato was the size of a 1/2 lime and tasted like it came from a TV dinner. Would not go back there again.

This place is all about the view. It cant be beat. The food is hit or miss. We had the Fig and Prosciutto Appetizer which was outstanding. The mains were just OK. Service was terrible. We had to hunt down the server when we wanted to get our check.

First time at Venezia. There were 4 in our party of seniors. The noise level was horrendous. Too loud for easy conversation. The view was exceptional! The food and service were good. Unfortunately we will never return because if the noise level.

After spending the majority of July hiding from the endless rain .. it was beyond refreshing to be dining on the outdoor deck at Venezia. It’s spacious, sunny and the beautiful water views of the City never disappoint. We thoroughly enjoyed our Caesar salads with lunches, followed by Chicken Parmigiana cooked perfectly with a side of Penne. As well as a Fish and Chip meal which was a big hit too. Our server Edwin was very attentive but not intrusive! Venezia has a decent wine menu as well. The one thing that you may want to be aware of is their location is a bit out of the way.. but well worth the effort.

Very busy, which makes for a lot of noise, but service excellent along with the food.

Menu on here still shows the wonderful veal dishes. Perhaps they are coming back?

Venezia is a bright open restaurant with great views of Boston. The banquette seating is very comfortable. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Fried calamari appetizer was light and had just enough heat. The short ribs and scallops serving size was small. The chicken piccata, chicken parm, and chicken with artichoke hearts were all oversized. Overall, we really enjoyed our visit and I would recommend the Venezia.

A great place with good food and drinks. We love ordering the wine from the Winery next door. The view is fantastic by the water. The wait staff are always accomodating and friendly. Whether we go just the two of us or with a group or function, the food has been always amazing. The focaccia bread and olive oil while you look over the menu is so tasty! Try the gnocchi!! A favorite with many of my family members. Also you will LOVE the espresso martini!!

Dining outside at Venezia is a true treat. It feels like being on Nantucket or the Vineyard with the boats docked alongside. But then you have this incredible view of the Boston skyline as well.

The food is excellent and our waitstaff were attentive but not imposing.

We love the experience.

The restaurant I thought I was going to was a quaint exquisite out of way place. the restaurant I ate with my family last night was a modern brick construction (looked like a super market). the acoustics were terrible and to get to the deck must have been an after thought. the food was excellent I could detect a shortage of qualified help. the staff that poured the water her mind was not on the job and the waiter had too many tables
