Venice Ristorante & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
Food was superb, waiter most helpful and gracious., the atmosphere is attractive and chic, my friends said their cocktail was ‘best ever”.
The food expediter who brought our plates was mixed up about which plates went to which diner, and looked irritated at us when we politely clarified (as if we’d inconvenienced him). This was the only ‘off’ note.
Will continue to come to Venice for enjoyable get-together with friends.
Out of town friends celebrating a birthday. Great time great food fantastic service. Went the extra mile! They raved about the food as they feel there are no good Italian restaurants in Austin Texas. Girls insisted on going back Sunday night for happy hour and were thrilled again with service and food. Boys were at the game. Thank you!!!!
Pacing was off tonight; service usually excellent. Water server had to ask if we’d been greeted after seating. Entree orders taken after appetizer arrived, leaving large menus taking up precious table space. Took awhile to get credit card back at end of meal.
What a lovely experience! I was looking to celebrate my graduation as if I was in my hometown of NY, NY eating at one of my favorite Italian restaurants.... After eating at Venice I can say this is my favorite Italian restaurant in Denver since I've come from NY a year ago. Waiters were friendly, knowledgeable about the food/wines, and sweet. Great service! Amazing fresh and flavorful food. Thanks for completing my special day with such a special dinner.
Beautiful place but tight and crowded. Had 8pm Réservation but weren’t seated until almost 8:25. Service was extremely, extremely slow. Very slow. Food came out but was one dish short. Side dishes did not come out until almost the end of the meal. Waiter was very apologetic and offered free dessert which was very nice but that too took forever.
Would be willing to give it a second chance but cautiously.
One of the few places where food has been the closest to authentic. The seating is a bit tight but the atmosphere and the service is at the top of the charts. I took my granddaughter there for her birthday day. The staff was on top of things and bought out the most gorgeous and delicious desert. Absolutely fabulous!!!! Thanks to the staff who made our dinner that more special.
This was one of the worst experiences we have had at a restaurant and we eat out very often. The service was deplorable. The waiter dropped water on me, the chair when we got seated was full of crumbs, then the waiter dropped a knife and later he spilled wine. The food was really greasy and we kept getting bumped by staff and customers at our table. They never asked us if our meal was good . All in all of we did not have a sense of humor and some optimism we would have left after the Ppitizers. It did not get better. Too bad because I used to enjoy this restaurant in the past.
Hostess seemed unable to find our reservation, which had requested a table in a quiet location for an anniversary celebration. Although we were quickly seated, we had to request to be reseated to a quitter, but still noisy, location. We were there quite early, and few other diners were present, but we were still seated in a location with little ambiance. Food was excellent, service very good, but we will not plan to return.
Venice made it special, on so many levels.
The occasion was dinner with a dear friend and everyone at Venice made it special for her. I let them know ahead of time it was a special occasion and they reserved the perfect table.
Even though they were busy Angelica, Tawny, and Alexis all took a moment to greet her and say hello. Dennis, the bartender, selected a wonderful wine. Cassandra, our waitress, was the perfect hostess. Always available without hovering. The lamb was perfect. The fish fantastic. A big thank you to everyone at Venice
We came to Denver for a destination wedding with many friends. We had an evening to go and explore some dining in Denver. There were 9 of us. Because of the Holiday, it was quite. We enjoyed our dinner here. The food was excellent, wine list fantastic! Our server Mario was so attentive and knowledgeable. The decor in the restaurant made me feel I was in Italy. Artistic and very comfortable. We had such a special evening with friends. Thank you, Mario and your team for making it such an enjoyable evening. We highly recommend this spot for a feeling of being in a place in Italy.
I didn't like the Veal Milanese. It had a lot of breading and not much taste. I couldn't taste the veal at all. I liked the arugula that was on top of the entree. My date had a lobster & seafood over pasta and it was good. They have space for private parties.
Very good service by Mario.The bread had to be sent back . It was so hard you could not tear it to dip in the olive oil.The second order of bread was very good and fresh. The eggplant appetizer was sent back because it as not even warm.After sending it back to the kitchen it was returned slightly warmer but a notably smaller portion. The entr'ees were good.
Can't complain about the food. Delicious. And the desserts were as good as it gets. Orange reme brulee was perfect. The tartufo thingy was perfect. The pastas were cooked perfectly al dente and seasoned properly. The portions were tiny, however. A little too small and that's not necessary when you're ordering pasta. Could easily have been 2x as large and we'd have been more satisfied.
If anything, I didn't care for the bread. Cell structure was about expected but not a great crust and really, rather bland. Needed sea salt on the table. When we asked for salt, we got typical, morton's table salt and it's nasty for a fine restaurant.
Wine list was GREAT> Had a couple of bottles of a Spanish wine and a 2010 West coast meritage that were affordable (under $50) and quite good. As good as the Sassicacia had the last time at 4x the price.
