Great Italian in Addison

Very good food but extremely high prices, and I mean extremely high. Watch out if you're having wine or alcohol, a bottle could cost you $200 plus. Servers were top notch. Food does not match prices, super expensive.

The venue is absolutely beautiful inside and out. The food was the best buffet I've ever had. Each dish had it's own unique flavor and the variety was non-stop. From salads, soups, pizzas, main courses to desserts -- all delicious. AND, the server was beyond attentive. I will definitely go back!

I am Italian and generally avoid Italian restaurants because they rarely meet the standards and quality of my own home kitchen. Venuti's is a major exception. Hands down one of the best and most authentic I've ever experienced. Bravissimi!

Venuti's is one of the only places in Chicagoland that serves pasta like we do. We make homemade pasta daily, and it is evident in the freshness of each dish. We are grateful to have raving fans like yourself and would appreciate you spreading the word:) Thanks for your business. More

My husband and I got married here on 07/06/2013 - and went back for dinner to celebrate. As always, the food was excellent - as was the service.

This restaurant is part of the Venuti Banquets and Restaurant. At lunch we had the buffet and they gave you at least 5-6 entree items plus several sides. They also have several breads, focasia and pizza. They have a salad bar and also a desert bar. Price is around $14 per person.

Dined at Venuti's with cousins on a Saturday night. The ladies ordered the sea bass special and the gentlemen ordered three other specials. Complete satisfaction with food, service, and ambiance. Excellent choice for special occasions. Birthday Celebrations received a sparkler in dessert along with singing wait staff. Very enjoyable evening! Will come again!
