Our dining experience was one of the best meals I have had in recent memory. The food was scrumptious and our server was attentive and very pleasant. I’ve already recommended this restaurant to a friend who has made a reservation for next month when she and her family will be visiting Denver.
Table was not ready until 540 pm. Restaurant smelled like sewer. asked to sit outside a few time and they were rude.
Delicious food that is perfectly cooked. Wine list that is complete $h1t and so crazy overpriced. Get drunk somewhere else and go here to eat. But the wine list is lame and insanely overpriced. 30 dollar glasses of wine for crummy wine that is insulting.
Service was solid and location is awesome!
Food was good, service was awful!
We told the hostess we would be sitting at the bar until our table was ready. She forgot we were there and gave away our table. Finally got another table and had to ask if we can at least have our drinks and water while waiting for the food. Food came eventually and was good. Would have been better if they didn't start removing plates before we were actually finished.
Birthday dinner for my wife. Food was superb, excellent wine list for all price levels, attentive service, great ambiance across from Union Station. A fun evening.
Always love this restaurant. Just all around great!
Everything was amazing! I’m from out of state and it was my first time visiting here. The food was so good I wanted to eat there everyday. I would highly recommend eating here.
Venice had great food! A nice date spot. We loved the manager and enjoyed a great time!
Great place for a date night. Order the Grappa de Moscato ..... to accompany your desert.
Thanks to great pitching by the Rockies, we got to the restaurant almost an hour before our reservation. They greeted and seated us right away. From the bread to the chicken Marsala to the tiramisu, the food was delicious. Grazie!
The food was great; however it was SO LOUD in this restaurant I couldn’t hear my date or our waiter just other people’s conversations radiating throughout the room. It was a Saturday night but it seemed the restaurant was overly crowded and not really the quiet romantic Italian spot I was expecting. Charcuterie board was excellent, tortellini was very good, wine choice was also excellent.
We have eaten here before and the service was amazing - this time it was so bad I am writing a review about it. We weren't greeted by a server until we told the gentleman who brought our waters out that it had been 20 mins and no one had even stopped by yet. Ugh.
We ordered two appetizers, the veal meatballs - outstanding - came out quickly and were soooo good! The second, a bruschetta board took so long to get to us we sent it back because we were about to get our meals.
All of our meals were delicious - the best being the seasonal pasta, a fantastic carbonara!
I hope this most recent visit was a fluke and the restaurant takes this review to heart to help their staff serve their clientele better next time.
Last point - we were seated in an outside area with a large commercial heater. We got chilly around 9 and asked for it to be turned on, we were informed it doesn't work and never has. If you are going to seat guests outside you should be prepared to keep them warm when its very chilly outside.
I was so uncomfortable dining here during covid. There was no social distancing whatsoever. Tables, and people, were packed in so close I could reach out and touch the table next to me. I don’t know how they are allowed to pack so many people in and have them so close together.
Worst service my wife and I have ever received at a restaurant. After 20 minutes of waiting after we were sat, we had to ask around for a waiter. Every time we needed something, we had to ask for our server. Tables around us were served and received there food before we did even though they arrived after us and had larger parties. The food was amazing but the service was so bad, it ruined the entire experience.
Brought an out of town guest to celebrate. Had a great time. Food as always was wonderful and service great. Always a fun evening.
Excellent food and atmosphere
Pass on this restaurant. Costs are through the roof compared with a sub-par experience at best in food, service, and ambiance. I ordered a martini and they said they were out of olives then came with olives in the server’s hand. Loud as a nightclub, and the food was at-best average. It is not fine dining or even good dining. An empty and disappointing dinner experience at every level.
We had a great experience at Venice Ristorante. The mozzarella cheese was extremely fresh. Also recommend the sausage and chicken cacciatore.
We have reservations at 6 pm, when we get there the Receptionist she was nice wanted us to wait for awhile it took about few minutes they came took us to our table. And we have two people where Attending to us I don’t remember theirs names but we really enjoyed very much, food was great. I would love to go back again.
Outstanding! We brought our son for his 13th birthday, as he requested a fancy dinner. Alessandro and his staff delivered in every aspect. The welcoming was warm and inviting, our table was set for our reservation and immediately acknowledged our son and had him feeling as special as we hoped the experience would be. The appetizers, drinks and dinner were great! The icing was the Italian style Tres Leches cake and singing him happy birthday 🎂! I cannot say enough great things about this establishment. A big shout out to our waiter, it's true that employees are a direct reflection of their leadership, Alessandro is doing great! Thank you again!
Vacation last night. Food was fantastic! Ambience even in bar area was wonderful and service was top notch. Highly recommend!!
Food was astounding as always, but service was very poor. Our server barely came by and we mentioned we came for my mothers 60th birthday and she completely forgot my moms drink for 30 minutes. She did not even walk back into our corner for 45 minutes at a time. She did have a strong accent so it was hard for her to understand us, possibly.
She also gave us two wrong orders after we already waited an hour for our food to come out. My mothers order was a completely different order, (she ordered the bolognese and received ravioli) and my brother ordered the regular salmon and received the seabass. After telling her she apologized but did not offer to fix anything or comp our bill. Disappointed in the service but will always come back because the food is so good. Hopefully this can be taken as constructive feedback to the restaurant.
The waiter forgot to put in our appetizer order and also forgot both sides. We never received either but weren’t charged
Great food with great service. An excellent way to spend our anniversary and we will definitely be back.
Best restaurant downtown Denver. Their food is delicious and everyone is so nice.
Our waitperson was helpful and attentive and made us feel special. It was both of our birthdays and he helped make it feel like a special occasion.
The outside dining area had poor heating and was cold. In fairness, the make shift heating system was supposed to serve temporarily while they waited for the fire department to approve the new system.
We are a return patron and plan on going again and again! Everything about this place is a homerun. Service is impeccable. Food is made with love and incredible. Great value and experience. Highly recommend.
Food was very good. Just thought it was a little too packed for Covid times.
First time here and it was SOOOO nice to be at a great energetic downtown restaurant again. The food and vibe were really good. My wife and I will be back for sure.
Nice and professional staff that is also very attentive. Excellent food variety and quality and a nice wine list (although a bit pricy). Overall you will not be disappointed.
Wonderful server, great food, and great atmosphere. Nice and quiet. will be back
Excellent service and fantastic food and wine! Great spot for a special occasion!
This place is amazing! Great staff, very clean, the food was impeccable. I can't rave about this place enough.
Excellent Italian food in a nice setting with great service!
This place was delicious!!! Our waiters and waitresses were phenomenal. There were about 4 different people helping us which made it amazing bc there was always someone there. Thanks guys! Will definitely be back again!
Service was rushed and food quality was ok. The place was packed and quite loud. Not what I expected.
As always they exceed my expectations. I NEVER write reviews, let alone two, but this place has amazed me at every point I just had too. Alessandro and Justin are two of my favorite people in Denver. I'm about to spend 3 saturdays in a row with them. <3
Always consistently excellent
The staff was lovely. They helped with recommendations and were on top of all of our needs. The food was prepared extremely well with all four of us very happy with our selections. It was nice to get back out and enjoy a dinner in a restaurant. Well done team.
