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!

I've been to this restaurant several times over the last few years. They have the best Italian food I've ever had. I've never been to Italy, so I can't compare it to food you get there. My favorite dish is the eggplant parmesan, but I have tried other dishes as well. The food is fresh and you get a lot... More

I was a regular for about a year and used to stop off weekly in the bar for pizza bread and a glass of wine. One time the blond female bartender served me pizza bread and it was halfway off the plate kind of laying partially on the bar. It also took a long time for her to wait on... More

I've been to two opera dinners this year and had a wonderful time on both occasions. The food was plentiful and delicious (house-made and very fresh), and the wine selections were very nice as well. The operatic fare was highly enjoyable and many of the customers are regulars for these performances, which have been occurring for over 20 years. If... More

I had my wedding reception at Venuti's in September 2013. Everything went off without a hitch and the staff was super helpful with all of our requests. The food was excellent. All the entrees are cooked to order, no heat lamp warmed steaks like I've seen at plenty of other banquet halls. The cocktail hour and hors d'ourves were great... More

The food was excellent, there was a large variety of foods. The service was ok. The restaurant was half empty when we arrived, although we had a reservation ad it was a large party they didn't seem to be able to manage the table appropriately. We were charged for things we did not order and although we had told them... More

Very impressive as you drive up – Greek/Roman architecture with valet attendants. Warm elegance as you walk in the dining rooms. Special occasions are a must at this restaurant.
