We had dinner here with a large work group of about 25 people. The service was excellent as well as the food. I am not a big pasta person so got the filet. I was really disappointed because it was very dry and lacked tasted. The others really enjoyed their food so moral of the story is stick with Italian... More

Venice was crowded and noisy, but the food and wine made up for that. Wine list was Italian and extensive but our server, Daniel, had the knowledge to help make a great suggestion. Food was good for both veterans of Italian cuisine and to the uninitiated. Would go back next time in Denver.

Service was terrible from the beginning. Server was mediocre at best, bus boy was worse. Everything very overpriced for no flavor, after 45 minutes and wine gone, still didn't have our dinner order placed. Manager too busy with girls to care. :( what a joke, DO NOT GO.

The service at Venice was close to perfect. The waitress was very informational. My drink was never empty. The food was excellent. It was Italian done right. The pasta was fresh and tasted amazing. It was expensive, but the food was delicious and the portions were large so I can't complain. The inside was very beautiful. It was very cozy... More

Four of us decided to go to Venice Ristorante for happy hour. This is something we normally do once a week or so. Usually one would expect to get drinks and food at a discount during the "happy hours". Not at Venice! The Venice's happy hour menu consisted of few selected wines at $6 per glass, which is what one... More

Beautiful interior and popular terrace. Elegant wine "cellar" in view in dining room. Lots of windows and great service! And, the happy hour bar menu is wonderful value.

Denver has a shortage of more formal, quality Italian restaurants. I love Spuntino in my neighborhood, but like most places in Denver, it doesn't cry out for one to put on a pair of slacks or a skirt. Therefore, Venice has become my go-to for that very special dinner when a real celebration and a new dress may be in... More

The Resturant is very good. Our service was excellent and the food very good. I had veal with artichokes and capers. The flavors were excellent. I have been to this Resturant at least 3 times and it has never disappointed .

Great restaurant in downtown close to hotels and shopping. Has a business dinner and ate on the veranda with nice service. Food was excellent and hard to finish the portion size. Service was friendly and attentive.

This was the best meal we had in Denver. The service was excellent. Great wine list and creative selection of food. The location is great especially if you eat outside facing Union Station. The inside was also very nice with a comfortable but upscale atmosphere. Don't miss having dinner here if possible.
