This felt like a factory restaurant parading as high end. My main dish the shrimp were so over cooked as to be inedible, the lobster cracked so that shell bits embedded in the meat and not very flavourful. Pasta part was fine although unremarkable. Tiramisu dessert also quite average- not worth price or calories. Service was indifferent except for one lovely lady- the woman who bused our finished dishes. She was warm and genuinely asked if we were having a pleasant evening.

I've been to Venice several times, but hadn't been in quite a while, so I was skeptical that things might have changed. Fortunately, the only things that had changed were their specials for the evening, and once again, they didn't disappoint! It was a first date and the service, food, and vino all surpassed any expectations that I could have set. We shared the Burrata and it was borderline divine! Would highly recommend and would most certainly order it again. Beyond scrumpscious! I had the Veal Marsala and it was cooked to perfection. My date had a salad that I believe she enjoyed, but I can't recall which one it was. All-and-all, Venice is still a Denver treasure and on my top 10 list for places that have never disappointed!

While our team was in Denver for business this was the best find of our trip. We all absolutely loved Venice Ristorante and Wine Bar. I don't drink but my colleagues found the wine to be amazing and the food was impeccable. We all agreed we would never miss an opportunity to visit this place again. Don't miss out try the authentic Italian cuisine and expansive wine menu. The homemade pasta was to die for!

This is the 4th time we have eaten here. This is also the only time when the service was a little slow. All of the employees and waitstaff very friendly, but the service was definitely slower than the other times we have been here to eat. The food was just as delicious as we remembered. We rave about their Bolognese and will definitely be going back. They did comp both of our desserts. Thank you.

Risotto was raw but flavor was good. Our butternut squash dish was cold and flavor combo was gross. Waiter was inattentive and not professional and lacked knowledge about the wine and menu. Don’t waste your time go somewhere else for a meal.

I just experienced Venice and I am extremely happy with the atmosphere, ambiance, art, decor, service, food & wine pairing. We walked in and immediately were greeted by the host and gm. I also noticed the gm shaking hands with his guests as the left and doing quality checks through the night. Tried the most amazing pasta dish -Rigatoni Salsiccia, Bresaola Pizza, and the Calamari. The Rigatoni sauce is something out of this world. To me it reminded me of a creamy red vodka sauce that I wish they would sell. The Bresaola Pizza has the most amazing/soft goat cheese and thinly sliced beef your pallet with thank you for. Not only was the food amazing and well balanced, but the wine pairing was spot on. All we had to do was tell the gm who is also a sommelier about the type (Malbec) and he brought an exquisite, full bodied, Spice but fruit forward wine to the table. This restaurant has it all.... Highly recommend for any occasion; however, it is truly romantic.

Thanks again to the staff for incredible service and the chef who made the most amazing dishes! Happy Hour is also a go to any day of the week!

Venice is why I love OpenTable - you are in a different city and don't know where to go. We had a special birthday to celebrate. After looking on OpenTable I decided on Venice.

Great choice ..... had Erin as the waitress - she was fabulous, very helpful and attentive - along with Sabi (Wasabi without the Wa).

The chef made burrata caprese just for us - and we loved our food and wine. I could not get over the wine cellar - all glass. So Erin had Eric show us around the structure as we discussed the wines.

Great experience and willcomeback again this week during our conference.

Will recommend highly.

Our dining experience at Venice was amazing. Both our server Krystal and the manager Eric were outstanding. My truffle risotto was excellent and so was the beef carpaccio. The wines Eric suggested fit our meal perfectly and were ver tasty. I can't wait to come back and try some new dishes soon.

Yet another wonderful experience at Venice. The pure joy of good friends getting together is magnified with beautiful wine, amazing cuisine, and old world service (thank-you Erin (sp) , Kevin, and Allesandro).

Strongly recommend Venice for a date as well - they will make you feel like a king and her a queen.

Thank-you Venice for a perfect evening.

A former co-worker and I have had many business lunches with clients at Venice. She now lives in Fort Collins. I've tried a number of the new places, but none can beat Venice for the quality of the beautifully presented food, the service and the ambiance. We chose Venice for our get-together. Though we were tempted by the tasty pasta entrees and the the specials of the day, we each ordered one of the delicious, fresh salads. This time, we both chose chicken for the protein, but we've enjoyed the salmon and the shrimp, too.

I chose the salad for lunch since I was meeting my husband at Venice for happy hour later in the day. The new happy hour menu includes delicious new small plates, as well as our favorites.

Enjoying Venice twice in one day is unusual, but wonderful!

The food was absolutely delicious! I visited Denver two years ago and enjoyed this restaurant so much that it was a must-revisit on my recent return to Denver. Our waitress, Gemalla (not sure if I spelled that correctly), was so outstanding that even our guests remarked that she helped to make this an exceptionally wonderful dining experience. Looking forward to dining there again in the near future!

Have eaten here numerous times with relatively good experiences, but our last Saturday dinner experience was a lousy one. Restaurant has good food and extensive wine list. However, the noise level was so loud and extreme that the five of us could not hear one another talk. I had specifically requested seating at a quieter table because two of our guests have hearing issues, but the request went unheeded as we were surrounded by tables. The restaurant filled up by the time we realized we were at a Broncos game. As a result, we couldn't change our table. The evening was ruined.

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!
