Food here is excellent as is the service. One member of our group ordered her stesk medium and recieved it very well done. Not a seconds hesitation on the part of the waiter to pick her plate right up when he saw her cut into it, announcing thats not medium ! The manager came right over to her apoligized with a ceaser salad for her to have while waiting for a new steak. She had already taken a bite of her sides but was quickly brought a whole new plate including fresh sides. To top it off we asked for a desert menu and we were given a complimentary sampling plate of all different deserts enough for all 6 of us!
We were all very impressed with the food and the service.

My husband and I came here for my birthday. We had an early reservation and got right in. Our server was prompt, polite, and took care of us. The food was delicious! We started with the calamari, I had the special burboun glaze short rib which melted in your mouth. My husband had the veal parm and said it’s the best he’s ever had. We got the French kiss martinis which we yummy! And the tiramisu was to die for. This was the perfect date night. Well worth the prices.

Great food. Great service. Nice atmosphere.
Our conversation during the appetizers and main entree suffered somewhat due to the fact we were too busy devouring the delicious appetizers and main course. Conversation resumed during the after dinner coffee.
We had a great time. Waiter was excellent.

I had forgotten we were so close to the holidays so of course the restaurant was at capacity with folks dining before their theater matinee. All good - made for a lively atmosphere. Despite the large crowd we did not feel rushed and the food and service were as usual above expectations.

There was no box for me to check above in the recommendation area which would have been - just fantastically prepared food with an extensive menu. Thanks for giving my staff a great holiday lunch!

We had the stuffed veal chop and the lobster tagliatelle and both were incredible in their own ways. While it's a little out of the way from the city, it's a cheap uber ride and well worth it.

Overall, the food was good and you get an excellent view of the Boston skyline. Despite the restaurant not being very busy (it was a Monday night), it was loud due to a large table of older women who were wearing too much perfume. The perfume unfortunately masked the taste of the food. The food was well prepared and presented. Service was good but a little fast for what was supposed to be a romantic dinner, and also too fast for a restaurant that wasn't busy. I'd definitely go again despite some minor shortcomings.

We really enjoyed Venezia restaurant. Our server did a great job, helping us choose specials that fit what we were looking for and recommending a great wine from the winery that is connected to the restaurant and paired well with our meal. The food was excellent and came in generous portions. There was a beautiful view of the city across the harbor. We came on a chilly autumn night, but we plan to return when the weather is warm again and enjoy the waterfront area near the restaurant.

Absolutely wonderful dining place. Staff is extremely friendly, informative and all seem to enjoy attending customer needs. Food is always exceptional, plated nicely, fresh and always enjoyed!
Sat at front window by bar area and enjoyed the live music and entertainment...still able to carry on dinner conversation with no problem at all.
Kudos to all, keep up the good work!

36th wedding anniversary. Hadn't been there in about 20 years. Hostess and waiter were prompt and courteous. We ordered a chianti and pinot grigio. Chianti was stale and pinot was tepid. Ordered calamari for an appetizer. Food appeared to have been sitting under a warmer lamp. Mainly small pieces. Entrée was lobster ravioli with clams and zucchini. Clams were the size of my baby fingernail. Ravioli was slightly under cooked. Not much lobster and not very tasty.

Very disappointed

Raoul our waiter was great at recommending food for wife since she had food allergies and he knew the menu and ingredients. But took him 3 times to bring extra cheese for Caesar salad but worse to come, wife's meal was fine . I ordered steak special $36.00 was rare and wanted medium but was pure grizzle, couldn't eat and when Raoul came back asked to wrap up un eaten steak except for chewed grizzles on the side, I said " one of the worst steaks ever never had". He took it away and came back with our bill $107.00
