Water view seat. Great service. Meal was excellent.
Boston marathon friends getting together
The experience was great, the people are amazing... the food was delicious...
Always an enjoyable meal at Venezia. We've been dining here since the 80's and are never disappointed.
My wife and I had lunch here on a Friday after walking some Dorchester neighborhoods, including Port Norfolk. We were greeted warmly and shown to a table along the windows overlooking the Neponset and Dorchester Bay with views back into the Boston skyline. Service was old school, which is to say it was pleasant, efficient and unobtrusive. And the food was great. The salmon and tuna tatare was plentiful and fresh with a restrained sesame ginger dressing that allowed he flavor of the fish to shine. The Misticanza Con Noci e Formaggio salad was superb. The star of the meal was the Orecchiette Pugliesi. Really nicely done. So great location, great service and great food.
Fantastic evening with great views and delicious food
The food was excellent and the service - Isaac, I think our waiter’s name was attentive and friendly.
The food was outstanding! Fresh mozzarella, lightly battered calamari and the lightest gnocchi with the perfect sauce!
Food was horrible ..noise was very loud. Went for Easter . We won't return.
lovely views of the harbor; friendly staff and service, good food.
We were the 1st ones there at 11am, in the worst possible seat against a wall, serving table and another table. I was very impressed with the food quality was excellent. But seating, and layout needs severe improvements. It was like herding cattle with lines everywhere, which the lines were out the door and long.
We showed up for Easter Brunch at noon. We were seated immediately in the dining room as opposed to the buffet. Service was great, even though the restaurant was very busy. Our food came out hot, and in a timely manner. Best service for a holiday meal in a long time. My mom, who is elderly, enjoyed seeing the young families, as well as ,the elderly like herself. It was a perfect choice for us.
We went to Easter brunch in the banquet hall. Really nice buffet.
Very good ! The view the food the live music everything though I recommend going in early as me and my date went around 9 o’clock not knowing they close at 10 and felt rushed by the servers to leave but other then that would go again.
This place was recommended to us and I'm glad we went. It's right on the waterfront with a nice view of Boston. The food was very delicious and well presented. This is an upscale place so the food is a bit pricey. The music from the bar was great.
Went during Restaurant Week for lunch. Not too busy but we did a late reservation. Service was fine- checked on meals but not obtrusive. Portions for lunch were very large. Most tables taking leftovers. Really nice setting-harbor views and quiet. For the Restaurant Week special it can’t be beat. Plenty of FREE parking. Staff very pleasant.
I've been going there for many years and I always enjoy it.. The service is always excellent, the staff always friendly .. also you get a nice view of city of Boston
Good experience. Short ribs were a little dry. Mashed potatoes were amazing. Bread pudding was really good as well. The falling maple drink was nice and strong. I would go again but would definitely try other food options.
Great food and good service!
The food was not that good, not sure if there are new chefs. We were very disappointed in the food as well as the prices, definitely went up as far as price point. The bar and lounge area was good, live music was fun. the bartenders were very friendly and attentive.
Excellent service and menu, relaxing atmosphere, it was very enjoyable.
The food was delicious, the service was very good, nice view of the water, would recommend Venezia for everyday or special occasion!
Amazing meatballs, swordfish and house made desserts.. excellent server as well!
It was great, the whole table was happy with their food and drinks. The view is beautiful!
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.
