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.

I was just in Colorado for a quick girls trip, this was one of our no calorie nights out. The food was mouthwatering, the drinks perfect and our waiter was so on top of things. Knowing that we were having a girls night when we ordered one desert to share he treated us to 3 cannoli's which were so yummy... More

I wish I could tell you how the food was but after 1 hour in the restaurant all we'd had was some terrible bruschetta. This menu looked so good that while visiting Denver we decided to go for our final dinner. When we showed up for our reservation we were sat and greeted quickly, good start... We ordered champagne, we... More

We ate here on a recent trip to Denver. It was so delicious, we returned 4 night later! everything from the appetizer to the desserts were top-notch. They have an extensive wine list which they bring to you on a tablet as soon as you're seated. The waiters are very knowledgeable about the menu. We dine frequently at Federal Hill... More

We discovered this restaurant while touring the new revitalized Union Station transportation hub which is across the street. We had an enjoyable lunch of salad, pasta and red wine. The chef obviously took great care in preparing our dishes (the ceasar salad came with fried capers-what a pleasant surprise!). Our friendly waiter acted as if we were the only people... More
