Food was outstanding. And they warmed the excellent bread on the 2nd batch. Tables were well distanced. Service was good.

The bolognese was excellent as were service, desserts, wine service. Great spot near Union Station for special occasions and very high quality Italian food. Parking can be an issue, but not during Covid!

Although the food was very tasty the service was mediocre and detracted from the meal. We had to ask the server repeatedly for a table item. For the price point and reputation i would expect the utensils to replace between each course, which did not happen.

Would I recommend this restaurant to a friend or family member... probably not.

Dissappointed.

This was our second time going to Venice and it is still amazing. We ordered a nice bottle of wine which our waiter kindly decanted for us. The food was delicious, I ordered a rigatoni dish while my husband had Branzino, and our daughter had Chicken Piccata. Even the kids spaghetti for our youngest was great and in large portion! Service was wonderful all around, but extra props to our server John who was nice, funny, helpful, and went above and beyond in our opinion. Highly recommend for great Italian!

A truly outstanding experience. One of the best Italian wine lists I have ever seen. The food and service were excellent. The Osso Buco was tender and served correctly. The pasta first course was a highlight. The restaurant is located across from Union Station so the night view is beautiful and vibrant.

We chose to celebrate our daughter's birthday at Venice because they had outdoor seating. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and we were given the option to sit inside, which we decided to try. Let me say that the restaurant is doing an excellent job of separating dining parties and providing a safe dining experience. What made our dinner most enjoyable was the excellent service we received from our server (Jeremy?). He provided helpful info about the menu and we were not disappointed with our selections. The meal was paced appropriately so that we did not feel rushed. The food was very good/excellent, the presentation creative, and the portions ample. The beverage selections were varied with a good assortment of wines from Italy. We look forward to going to Venice again in order to try other things on their interesting menu.

We normally dine at the DTC location, but decided to try downtown...huge mistake.
The service provided by our server was excellent, 5 stars, but I only gave 3 because of the hostess. We specifically requested standard seating, but were put in the bar at a high top. The hostess went to check, and when she finally came back, stated there was no guarantee of seating and actually expected us to try and find a table in the main restaurant. It was very loud, which made the experience that much worse.
In addition, they were out of menu items. Didn't have the wine we wanted, also didn't have one of the desserts requested. We will not be returning to this location, and will make sure to deter friends and family.

The best happy hour in Denver! The variety of delicious small plates is unsurpassed! Favorites include Mozzarella Caprese, Tagliatelle Bolognese, and Linguini Con Vongole.
Dennis was pouring our favorite beverages as we walked in the door. The Super Tuscan is the best! Patio dining is available, too. The dining room is elegant and relaxing.
For happy hour or dinner, the food is delicious and beautifully presented by such excellent servers. Save room for the amazing desserts!

Food was abundant!!!! Husband had Osso Buco on top of pasta, fork tender and tested like you were in Italy. I am vegetarian and was longing for a pasta primavera, not on the menu, but the waiter (Rob) offered to have it made; this dish was chocked full of every vegetable, served steaming hot with fresh pasta noodles. We could have filled up on the polenta carpaccio appetizer alone, it was delectable. Thank goodness we hadn’t eaten all day, so we downed half of our entrees and saved the rest for the next day. Usually Italian leftovers, don’t reheat well....it was just as good as reheated as when we were dining at the restaurant. DEFINITELY will return.

I loved my experience at Venice. I showed up for dinner early and was seated right at the bar. The bartender was wonderful, the food was excellent, and the wine was fabulous. I would highly recommend this place if you're in the mood for Italian food while in downtown Denver!

Honestly, I would have given it 1 star if it wasn’t for the hard working manager Pako and his hostess! They saved our experience! Food was delicious, but the service was terrible, even though we had a reservation, no one took our order and hour after we sat down and didn’t get our food an hour and a half after our reservation time!
But, Pako saved the evening with his awareness, hard work and friendliness! His respect of customers is unique for Colorado dinning, and the chef is amazing as well!
We still will return for sure and give it another chance! Thanks Pako🙏

Best Birthday Ever!
We celebrate all birthdays and anniversaries at Venice! As soon as we were seated, Dennis had our favorite beverages delivered to the table. The Super Tuscan is my favorite. Our server, John, was top-notch. He was warm and so detail-oriented. He was attentive, and made our celebration special. Our entrees included a variety of pastas. I chose the Linguini da Mare -- shrimp, scallops, clams and mussels -- how delicious! The dessert selections were amazing and beautifully presented. The tiramisu, the chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream, and the amazing cheesecake, drizzled in strawberry and blueberry glaze, were all exquisite! Thank you to all at Venice for making our evening so memorable!

These are the sort of servers that will chase a patron to return his reading glasses – in heels – even when he has a two-block head start. We watched and applauded.
We only had dessert and a cocktail, all excellent, sitting on the patio (which has been extended into one lane of a quiet street and protected by stout barricades. Our server – the sprinter – was attentive and very helpful with her suggestions. Venice is within view of the restaurants housed within Union Station and their patios, but much more intimate. We would certainly return when again in town.

The best Happy Hour! Though it's hard to choose from the variety of delicious tapas, this week, we enjoyed the Fettuccini Alfredo, the Cappelletti di Zucca, and the Tagliatelle Bolognese. The portions are generous and very delicious! As always, Dennis is pouring our favorite beverages as we walk in the door. I especially love the Super Tuscan!
