We have dined here many times in the past over the last 10+ years and we were very disappointed. The pasta was very over cooked, the sauces lacked flavor but were very over salted. Lazy cooking at its best and not to the caliber we would ever want, especially when taking visiting family for a milestone birthday. Dinner took well over 2 hours with just entrees ordered. Nothing but very loud smooth jazz playing. Very slow service. The busers were great and attentive, but that was all. Unfortunately we will no longer recommend this place, as the last time we came we experienced similar lack of quality and service, which apparently is now standard. Very disappointed.

Food was ok, not great. Very busy, and because we had a high top in the bar area it made for crowded dining. I would “maybe” recommend to a friend.

We are regulars (as are many of our friends) at Venice and have been for many years. We’ve always reserved the hightop table by the window in the bar for dinner and now since Nunzio left, we have not been seated there. The hostess told me last night that she cannot guarantee that table for us. We’ve always made reservations well in advance, and requested this specific table. It has never been an issue before. We love the food and the wait staff at Venice, but not sure we will continue to go.

The restaurant was so loud, you could barely hear the dinner guest talking who was sitting next to me. The service was so slow it took three hours total. The food was mediocre at best. Huge disappointment for a birthday celebration.

Busy restaurant on Friday night. Had party of 10 and 12 showed, and they were accommodating. We "had" two servers to start and once the meal was dropped, they both disappeared!! No one stopped by to ask about meal or second drinks. Plates removed, again, no one asked for coffee or desserts. Several plates of dessert just showed up. I really wanted some coffee. Took over 45 minutes and chasing some one down to get check! Started off great, than went down hill, what a shame because the food was great!

It got a little annoying having so many people coming to the table. My water doesn’t need to be filled every few sips. Waitress was very pleasant & attentive. Food was good. Not sure I’ll go back, but a good experience.

What a wonderful date night! First time at Venice in DTC, loved the ambience of the restaurant with the high ceilings and white draping. From the moment we walked in till the end of the night when we left, every interaction with the staff was so warm and welcoming and friendly. The menu was incredible! Between the regular menu and the specials (which could have been a full menu on its own), the variety of food was positively overwhelming! So many wonderful choices. Victor was our server (along with his trainee Allen) and they were both fantastic, so animated and friendly and made us feel like family. Victor made wonderful recommendations on wine and entrees, and he was so passionate about the food. We ordered the Calamaretti e Zucchini Fritte which was delicious, perfectly breaded and crispy. For entrees we had the Veal Milanese, Vitello all Caprese, and shared a side of penne vodka. WOW!! I can honestly say the Veal Milanese was probably the best veal I've ever had in my life. Perfectly tender, the breading was perfectly seasoned and so tasty, the arugula salad gave a crisp freshness, and the penne vodka was so creamy and delectable and perfect to share. And my husband loved the Vitello all Caprese! We were too full for dessert but enjoyed some lemoncello which was the perfect way to end the meal. Overall, an impeccable dining experience and can't wait to come back soon!

The whole dining experience was awesome! The staff, the ambiance and food were to die for!
I had the sea bass and my husband had veal scalloppi. Salads delicious. The dessert was yummy also. The Moscato wine was picked by a wine connoisseur. It was just so delicious! We can't wait to return.

Walking in on a date night , myself in a suit and my date in a lovely dress. We were greeted with warm light and a friendly staff . The place was packed and we had to wait a little time but as we waited the owner personally greeted us and welcomed us to his restaurant. As we were sat shortly after we were treated to delicious calamari and outstanding meatballs as an appetizer. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive , our water glasses never got below half before a fresh refill was upon us . The farfelle pasta I ordered was impeccable and I shared a bite with the rest of my table and they all loved it . My date and other 2 friends (on our double date) all shared a sample of each of our plates and every bite was unforgettable. After finishing and enjoying a whisky cocktail… stomach pressing to the brim , we had to order dessert . The 4 of us shared cannolis as well as a molten lava cake . A perfect way to end a perfect dinner date. This place is worth every penny and I will be going back again .

Our party was big but we were right on time for our reservation . We waited a long time to have the waiter take our orders and it took forever to get the dinners. Food was overly salty and very disappointing.

The outside looks like a typical strip mall with a grocery store and shops but don’t let the outside appearances fool you. Once inside the restaurant it is high end and upscale white table cloth environment.

We were there for a promotion celebration of a colleague and it was a perfect choice of a restaurant to fit this occasion.

There were an abundance of daily specials available and truly could have been the whole menu but there was a lot more to offer when looking at the menu.

Great wine list up and down the scale of price. Both low mid and high end quality and pricing.

The food was excellent. The presentation was well done on each plate from salads to entrees to desserts.

The service was a little slow but didn’t impact the overall meal and it may have just been us because we put them off to finish up a couple of business items before ordering.

Everyone in our party commented on how good the food was and it was a very nice evening.

Had seven people at a round table which worked well. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. The service was excellent and we received complementary deserts for the birthday celebration. We wholeheartedly recommend Venice and Chianti.

Great food, excellent service. Only negative aspect was that the tables were so close together that it was impossible for the servers to get to certain places and for guests to get up to use the restroom without others in having to move their chairs.

This is one of our favorite places, but this time the service was slow and largely inattentive. Had to wait quite long for our food. No one checked with us to see whether the food was right. No one filled our water glasses until the meal was pretty much over. I had to flag someone down to take my card to pay after we had received the check. An anomaly, but this stuff should not happen in a restaurant of this class.
