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.

Italian food is my favorite cuisine to both cook and eat, which has made me very picky and quite knowledgeable about the food. I actually don't go to many restaurants because most are bland and barely edible. Well I ordered the rigatoni con arrabbiata sauce and much to my surprise it was delicious! This would also be the very first... More

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. Venuti's steak is better than that at the popular 'steak houses.' You can cut the filet with a fork - and that is a big part of why we chose to have... More

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.
