The waitress seemed a little unfamiliar with the wine list and sequence for beverage service. Admittedly she was new. Afterwards she was able to split the bills for each couple. The food was great!

This was our first time at Venice Ristorante, but it will definitely NOT be our last. We brought friends from out of town there that are used to exceptional Italian food. This exceeded their expectations!! From the minute we walked in, the ambiance was amazing! Our server was extremely helpful navigating us through the extensive menu. All of our appetizers were substantial & delicious! We had the charcuterie board, carpaccio, & panzanella salad, each one was excellent. The main courses were beyond phenomenal! From the house made pastas to the chicken dishes & the special fish of the day, we were thrilled!! Make sure to save room for dessert because the cannoli, profiteroles, & zabaglione are outstanding!! We live an hour away, but Venice Ristorante is our go to from now on!!

Completely enjoyed my experience at Venice. I booked reservations for myself and eight other work team members, many who were from out of town. Everyone enjoyed the food and ambiance. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for great food and an excellent dining experience.

We would recommend based on our past experiences. This visit was, hopefully, out of the norm. We did not see any of our usual faces (Dennis in the bar, etc.). Service was extremely slow. We waited 5 -7 minutes for water and a menu. Normally, we are greeted and seated with a bar menu within minutes, water and bread are provided quickly and our drink order taken in less than 5 minutes. Hopefully this was just an odd moment.

This is one of our very favorites in Denver.
Always outstanding food, from fresh warm bread through all courses. Knowledgeable and customized help selecting wine from our very efficient, attentive, friendly and delightful server. Noise level is one click more than my preference, but I gladly deal with it for the enjoyment of all Venice’s many virtues. (And it’s not really that loud. It’s “lively”, and out threesome could converse just fine. Would be too loud for someone hard of hearing, ie, I can’t bring my elderly parents.). Anyway, GREAT food and wine and cocktails and wonderful service. Love this place.

We went for my birthday and the food was amazing. The gnocchi was very tender and the tortellini delicious! They surprised me with free dessert! It wasnt something I would eat, but the thought was nice. The service was not amazing though. Our waiter did not pay much attention to us. He would ask if we needed anything but would forget to bring it. We sat for almost 30 minutes after we finished eating before he asked if we were ready for our check. It was almost like we were bothering him when he had bigger tables. I would go back and try again, only because the food was good.

Great food. The meal took a while and the service was ok. She was great but I think that they had her doing too much, so she didn’t check on us much.

Service was terrible! This restaurant is sorely understaffed. When our entrees arrived it took quite a while to get silverware. We were left to sit there watching the food get cold. The food itself was unimpressive for the price. We tried to get some grated parm, salt and pepper to help it out but couldn't even find any staff to pretend to care. What a disappointment. To be fair, the carpaccio appetizer was good.

My friends and I had a late lunch one weekday afternoon. It was really nice to be in a restaurant where you don't have to scream over the loud music to be heard. Needless to say, we had a very nice conversational lunch.

The food was very excellent as was the service. Wait staff very efficient and pleasant.

No complaints here. Will do this again for a more intimate meal with friends and love ones.

The wait staff was friendly and attentive, but there was a disconnect between her and the kitchen. It took 90 mins to receive our main course - blamed on some "electronic glitch." We were given a complementary glass of wine for our inconvenience. The food was tasty, and the prices were surprisingly moderate. I would return to give them a second chance.

Great food and service and location...across the street from Union Station which is an easy walk from the train. Portions are large and food is fairly priced...home made pasta was amazing.

Second time here, really disappointing. Waiter was nice but was more concerned about flirting with the hostess. We waited 45 minutes for our food after ordering and the table next to us showed up and ordered and received their food in 15 minutes. Food taste was very bland this time. Our first experience here was wonderful but second time has made us question if there will be a third. :(

Overall a very good dining experience. Our waiter, John was pleasant and professional. Even though there was a mixup with one of the orders it was handled well and with no upset.
We are from the east coast and our expectations were not that high but this is Italian well done. I plan to return upon my next visit to Denver.

I know authentic Italian food because I'm Italian and I come from a city (Providence, Rhode Island) that has some of the best restaurants in the country. That said I loved Venice Restaurant. Never thought I would find top notch Italian cuisine in Denver but I did! Beautiful restaurant and I loved the staff. Put this place on your list when you're in Denver.

Really pretty on the inside, but rather loud. The food was not that great at all. Ordered the crab cake and one other app (I forgot?) but both were deep fried and really heavy. Also ordered the seafood pasta in the shape of a heart. The pasta part was tasty but the dish was really fishy tasting. I can’t tecall the other entree but overall nothing memorable :-( I wanted to love this place as it had really good reviews but sadly will probably not go here again.

Normally one of our favorite restaurants. Tonight, one meal out of 4 was cooked correctly. Ravioli was over cooked, wild boar fettuccine pasta was also over cooked and more grizzle than meat, fish was dry. Entrees took 40 minutes. Ordered a second bottle of wine, same as the first. Waiter did not bring us the bottle to show it was the same, nor did he let us taste it first. He decantered it out of our view. We told the manager about this. It was the same wine, but this caliber of restaurant should know better. Manager did give us free dessert and lemoncello, but with all the restaurants in the area, It will be a while before we go back.
