We were immediately seated at our table and the superior service continued all through the meal. The food was excellent and we learned a little about Italian wines from our waiter. The location was perfect in Denver’s LoDo district, right across from Union Station. I cannot wait to go there again!

I have been to this restaurant many times and it's always been fantastic. However, we went on Valentine's day and it wasn't up to par with our past visits. Service was slow, due to it being very busy but still....They had a "special" menu and many of us enjoyed our meals but those that ordered the seafood lasagna said it was so dry that it was almost inedible. I like this restaurant but probably won't go back on a holiday.

Venice Ristorante, across the street from Union Station in Denver, was a true find. An interesting menu, a great wine selection, delicious food, and excellent and friendly service made this a memorable dining experience. The Saltimboca alla Romana was perfect, and the special dessert, profiteroles, the perfect ending to wonderful meal. An excellent wine selection and inventive cocktails complement the food. I plan to return on my next trip to Denver.

It took over one hour to receive our food. This is the first time something like this happened, but the restaurant was empty and it took far too long to bring us our meals.

From the moment we arrived, we were treated kindly. The wait staff was excellent. Our waitress assisted in wine and food selections, and she was spot on. The food was home made and so delicious prepared with fresh ingredients. the wine selection was wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Denver.

I was under pressure to find a restaurant that would accommodate the various dietary needs of my sales team but also impress the President of the company. On top of that I needed to find a restaurant who's menu was moderately priced. Not an easy task. I came across Venice on Opentable and the reviews intrigued me. The one worry I had was about the reviews I saw with regard to their service. I went ahead and booked a reservation. I don't normally write reviews but I wanted other's to know the food was amazing and Corey or server (spelling not sure) was outstanding!

Food was very good as usual. We were very disappointed in the service. Our server was consistently poor throughout the evening mixing up our orders from cocktails through deserts. It was though he wasn’t even listening to us.

This is the 2nd time we have been here since NYE. We have never disappointed. Had the lasagna this time and it was delicious. Also tried the Tiramisu for dessert. It is the best that I have tasted in a long time. We will definitely be back. Next time I plan to try the dessert cannoli. Very impressed as usual and satisfied.

Our niece was visiting from out of town with a friend and after a day of exploring Denver, this was a great place to go. We had a party of 5 and was sat at a round table, perfect for catching up. We had a bottle of red and our niece and her friend had a bottle of white, both delicious!

Get the Caesar salad. Not only delicious, but presentation is stunning. The parmesan bowl is not only beautiful but a must taste. My cioppino had a rich, deep, flavor with the fish and seafood perfectly cooked.

Go on a date, Go for a business meeting, Go to catch up with family and friends, just Go!

We enjoyed my husband's birthday celebration dinner at Venice! Venice is our favorite restaurant for special occasions, and many dinners in between! Dennis mixed his usual superb martinis. My Super Tuscan wine was outstanding. Chef Christian prepared elegant appetizers of Northern Italian, paper-thin, sliced dried beef for us. That was followed by our entrees of Rigatoni Salsiccia and Scampi Limone. All food is beautifully presented, and tastes so delicious. In addition to our favorite dishes, there are new, innovative creations as well. The tiramisu is the best in Denver, and better than the tiramisu we've enjoyed in San Francisco's North Beach! Our service team, led by Angelica, anticipated our every need. The team was top-notch! In addition to the wonderful dinners, Venice has the best Happy Hour in Denver! Enjoy!

Have had two wonderful lunches here recently. The wait staff was excellent and the wine program , as well . Veal was wonderful , as was the calamari , and mussels . The Feudi wines paired beautifully . Eric Carter was a most personable and effecient Manager and Sommelier. I heartily reommend the Wynkoop/ Union Station location .

My friends and I were very impressed with Venice. The service was superb and all of our meals were amazing. We were visiting from out of state, but this is a place that you can go to ten times and get a different meal every time. The pasta, chicken, salad, etc. were all fantastic.

great food and ambiance, but really slow service. We were dressed casually and had young women with us, many for whom this was a big deal, but it seems staff didn't take us seriously and provide the care and attention we deserved. My money is just as green as the next guy's, so that was a mistake.
