The restaurant felt more energized than the last time we dined there. Everything was excellent! The only issue was that as a table of 6 the noise level was a bit challenging to hear anything said across the table. But all else was fabulous!

Traveling to Denver for my best friends birthday this was our second visit to Venice Restaurant. First, the food and wine is absolutely delicious. Hand made pastas are to die for, and the salads and appetizers are fabulous! The service is spot on, and our server was exceptional even bringing out a complimentary dessert and limoncello apartifs for us to end the birthday dinner. We will be back next time I am in town!!

Both of our pasta dishes came out with the wrong pasta. Too hungry to send them back!

I received a very nice call from the GM, Paco today. He was very apologetic for our dinner orders and asked for additional details. I am impressed by the response
from Venice’s and when in Denver again, we would not hesitate to visit again.

Great dinner with friends. Our server Lori was very patient and helpful with our large group. We were the last to leave but felt no pressure. The one downside was the noise level. We had a party of 6 and it was really difficult to hear anyone other than the person next to me during the rush. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend it.

Venice - Best birthday dinner ever!
Our family chooses to celebrate our special occasions at Venice. The delicious food from the antipasti to the elegant desserts are creatively prepared and exquisitely presented. For this occasion, we chose seafood and pasta for our entrees. The scampi with artichoke hearts and capers was served in perfect sauce. The salmon with sauteed vegetables was to die for. The ravioli with butternut squash and walnuts is a family favorite. Our cocktails and wine were excellent. The service was top-notch. The ambiance is beautiful, but warm and welcoming as well.

Venice is a favorite restaurant for business lunches and happy hour, as well as dinners. Venice is simply the best!

I made a reservation for the dining room and specified my husband’s birthday. They overbooked with parties and sat us in the sports bar!! Not the evening I was wanting. They finally moved us to a hallway to a table that was too big for 4 people, very loud, very awkward. Then the server was horrible. Didn’t know wines at all. Vanished at some point and I had to ask another server to find him. The food was good but cold and not timed well. For the price I expected so so much more. Will not go back

We had wonderful evening at Venice. We were greeted at the door and given a nice table near the wine room. Service was good but after the food arrived our server was difficult to locate. However, the restaurant made my daughter feel incredibly special on her 18th birthday. The menu and wine list were impressive. We will be returning to Venice in the future.

We were there 6:15 on Saturday evening and it was a very busy place - and a bit too loud to enjoy conversation around the table. But, as always, the food was excellent, it's the reason we keep coming back. We think it is some of the best Italian food in Denver! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and introducing the place to our children. We will definitely be back. Thanks for an incredible meal!

Odd smell when entering the restaurant, maybe too much bleach. Waiter had a big smile, but really no skills. Food was just adequate - ravioli filling was a soupy messy and what was served as tagliatelle was more like fettuccine. We choose the restaurant based on location and price, but won’t be back.

Had an early reservation before a show at Pepsi Center. Service was not great especially seeing the restaurant was empty. Drinks we fine, food was nothing to brag about. Second time there for dinner, may be my last.

The food here is SO good and really authentic! We came here for my moms birthday and all feel in love with the food and service. We requested to sit outside and the view was amazing (you should make reservations for outside cause there aren’t many tables). We ordered the spinach ravioli, butternut squash ravioli and bass. You could tell that the pasta was fresh and the fish was cooked to perfection. Also got the burrata which I loved! Got a complimentary tiramisu cause it was my moms birthday and it was the perfect end to the meal!

Went here for date night and it was awesome! We sat outside with a view of Union Station which set the mood. We had the calamari and fried zucchini the waiter recommended for an appetizer. I got the Gnocchi with pesto sauce and chicken and of course, I couldn't turn down dessert so we got the tiramisu.

Everything was delicious! Ate more than I should have but it was so worth it

We’re from Chicago and we have fantastic restaurants. I wish this restaurant would open up in my neighborhood because it was outstanding. The maître d’ the hostesses The table attendees and especially our waitress Maggie. The soup we had and the ravioli we had we’re absolutely outstanding. She gave us a free dessert welcoming us to Denver. How classy is that. Thank you so much Venice
