It was a nice dinner for our anniversary with our good friends. It was so nice to get together after a long..... time because of COVID.
Our meals were good but a little pricey. Overall a good time.

We had a group of 4 for a belated birthday celebration. The whole evening, from stsrt to finish was wonderful and could not have been any better! The service (from the hostess to our server, to the bartender were all very engaging, attentive, and accommodating)! The scenic views outdoors and the food was all awesome, as advertised! Be forewarned, we'll be back!

The surf and turf was not good. The meat was ordered medium rare and was too rare. The ceasar salad was drenched in dressing. I will make a different choice for the next Mother's Day. So disappointing.

I made a reservation for Mothers Day plus Graduation dinner for my daughter.
The food was delicious, the service was great and the view was beautiful!
I highly recommend!
The restaurant is a little out of the way but there is plenty of parking and def worth the effort to get there!

Mother’s Day luncheon was excellent at Venezia. The menu was varied and abundant with many tasty items. We started out with the calamari which was just a touch spicy, lightly breaded and done perfectly as well as the crab cakes which were full of real crab drizzled in a tangy sauce. Meals all around were the prime rib and lobster casserole which was flavorful and generous.
The waitstaff seemed to be a mixture of established staff and new, however theft covered all our needs and were very pleasant after a rather slow start.
We sat indoors which was preferred as it was a little chilly and we sinned with a toddler. I’ve never had a bad meal here and am impressed with the great quality of meals they deliver.

I've frequented Venezia for business meetings primarily, due to location, and always enjoyed the food, service and ambience, but this time we went for Mother's Day with a party of five. The food is North End quality, quite good and everyone at the table (a diverse group) was thoroughly impressed. Mother's Day is a busy day so we couldn't really relax at the end of the meal... it felt like the pressure was on to clear out and make room for the next party. However, overall, this is an excellent restaurant and I highly recommend!

Very disappointed!! Had a reservation and said she didn’t have space for us. We then got seated in the banquet hall. Food was not like it used to be, got the wrong food and when we did finally get our correct order it was terrible!! Service was slow and to ask for waiter all night. This was our go to place, they need to get back in the game or it won’t be good for them.

It is not the first time we dine at Venezia. Our waitress was either overly booked or did not care. We waited 1 hour for our food to arrive. We waited 20 min before anyone asked us what we would like to order. We had to ask for the bread basket because we were served the drinks way before our meals . The way we were asked about dessert made us not wanting to have it.. It saddens me to write this, but service is one of the important part of dining in, otherwise we will order out! Not sure if I ever go back.

Absolutely outstanding! From the time we walked into the restaurant until we left 90 minutes later, fabulous! The waitstaff and hostesses could not have been more welcoming. The presentation of food with the gorgeous flower, unique and quite classy!

Perfect for a special occasion! Food and ambience was great, definitely worth it. The view was gorgeous. Only complaint is that i booked far in advance and requested a window seat but didn’t get one. View was still great though. I definitely recommend. They have their own free parking lot too so you don’t need to walk far. Will definitely come back here again.

Fantastic food, great service. Had dinner on the water with my boyfriend and it was a great spot for date night. It is expensive, but its worth it!

Boston Winery is right next door and they have a section in their wine menu that is all Boston Winery wines which I loved.

We had a beautiful table for two by the window our waitress was great! We called ahead as something my husband wanted wasn’t listed on the menu. they asked the chef and he made it.
We usually go here for special occasions because the food is so good and the service is great!! It’s great for every day dining as well

Beautiful Saturday afternoon late lunch and we sat out on the deck overlooking Neponset River!! Bar was a great pour. The service was spot on on. My meal was a healthy portion and it was fabulous. I had the Chicken Risotto and there were no leftovers. We shared the Molten Cholate Cake, yum!

Food was absolutely terrible had to send the Steak back twice ended up telling them to take it off the bill and just bring me a cheeseburger my husband’s food was overcooked it was a dry piece of disgusting red snapper that was also sent back and re-cocked and came out just as bad The food should’ve been comped because we did not even eat it The only good thing about this experience was the waiter he was awesome !!!!
