Will be back!
Good food, great location and priced right. Great for large parties.
So, all in all, it was a good evening until they brought out the birthday cake we had brought with us for our friend. When we arrived we gave it to the front desk and they said they'd bring it out after our meal... "not a problem at all".
Well, the problem is when they brought it out the frosting was melted on one side. The server then pretended to act confused, like he wasn't sure what was wrong "oh... what's this...". The cake was CLEARLY melted and the possibility of him not noticing it was about zero (I noticed it immediately from probably 10 feet away as he approached).
Then he tried to say something to the effect of "maybe it shifted on the drive over?". No, no, it's not "shifted", it's MELTED. Obviously, they had put it next to something hot at some point but didn't want to own up to it. I had taken a picture of it (it was a nice/expensive cake with an image on it) literally seconds before leaving for the restaurant, so there is no doubt it was totally fine when we left.
He proceeds to go and get the box, saying something about the box is fine so it must have happened before. Uh... so I'm not sure how the box proves anything other than it happened THERE after they took it out of the box, or there'd be melting icing on the box.
The net result was they did nothing for us. Nothing comp'd, not even an apology. The closest we got to an apology was "sorry, I'm not sure what happened."
Accidents happen, and I can forgive that, but totally unreasonable and borderline insulting attempts to cover up an accident and blame it on the guests... I'm not so forgiving.
Fortunately, our friend took it in stride and managed to laugh at her mess of a cake.
We enjoyed the nite but it was way too noisy for us to have a really good time. Hard to hear each other talk.
But dancing must be fun for later on.
My son & I had lunch at Venezia on this unseasonably warm winter day in Boston, today. The food was very good. Simply prepared, but delicious. I had the linguine fruit de Mari, fresh homemade pasta with lots of clams, scallops, calamari & mussels. It had a nice kick.
My 11 year old son ordered the lobster ravioli with clams. He devoured it all.
We split the warm chocolate molten cake for dessert. It was good, but had better.
Pleasant experience & waitstaff.
I would go back again with a large group.
Great Food. Excellent Service. Great find. Lots of night time energy
A lovely view of Boston skyline, Assume food, What more caould you ask for.
Friendly staff, prompt service and good food made for a great special occasion.
Can not wait for another special occasion to return.The food was excellent, tasty fresh. Enjoyed the view & the service was excellent.
Exceptional! Absolutely delicious meals and warm ambiance.
Food was amazing! Little on pricier side but definitely worth it. You will not be disappointed. Service was great as well
Celebrated a birthday dinner and loved the huge round table.
Found the ambience nice. Found the waitstaff a little pretentious. I found the food to be average Italian in taste and the presentation was terrible - the Chicken Parm was a slab of chicken with a big square of cheese melted on it (not really mouthwatering).
Waiter offered great recommendations. He approached at the right times. Can’t wait to go back.
The staff was courteous and friendly. The food was superb! Our waitstaff was very attentive. I sorry I don't recall his name but he was great!
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.
It was my birthday dinner with a party of 10. We had a great time! Great food and service
Food was excellent, waitstaff was excellent, ambience was great and all three people in my group enjoyed the experience for New Years Eve
It was wonderful. I always like my experience here. The views and ambience are always wonderful. 😊
I went with a friend t celebrate Christmas/New Years. The food and service were excellent. It was of course very crowded and loud but thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Had a delightful New Years’s eve at Venezia. The food was great, and we had a terrific waiter. We will be back!
always a good meal and great service. view of Boston is great
Well prepared well presented food attentive staff great view
Outstanding evening celebrating the holiday with my family. Service and food was excellent.
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.
Thank you. A nice evening! Staff was very warm and welcoming.
Took my mother out to Christmas dinner. Very good food and very good service. Nice water view. Very quiet.
Food and drink were excellent.
Waiter was attentive, but not overbearing and ambience was perfect
Holidays very nice place have to go back summer time.
The service is phenomenal! We love Venezia's!
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!
Met some friends for dinner......this location seemed to be our midpoint and has plenty of parking. We had a late arrival and the hostess was very accommodating about pushing back our reservation. Food was wonderful, service was excellent......really nice staff. Highly recommend!
Excellent food, service and value. The choices of food will please everyone because of the large variety of cuisine. The group of friends go there at least twice a year because we have never been disappointed or rushed
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.
We had a holiday luncheon here and everything was phenomenal, from the minute we arrived, to the time we left. The view and the great food, from the appetizers, entrees and desserts were awesome. A definite plate to be returned to in the near future.
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.
Waiter was abrupt and impersonal. Felt rushed to finish meal. Waiter stained my shirt while clearing table. Didn't offer to have it cleaned.
My entree was cold when delivered.
Not a good dining experience.
Food was fabulous, service ( Kirsten) outstanding! We had a large group of friends there, enjoyed dinner, had danced the night away! Highly recommend. Lot's of fun friendly people at the bar also !
Venezia never disappoints. Food was great. Service was very accommodating. Great view even though it was a rainy day.
