After our long walk on the Cherry Creek Bike Path we enjoyed a relaxing meal at Venice. The bread was fresh and good, our Insalate Mele was fantastic and our Ravioli Salsiccia and Ravioli Aragosta was marvelous. Highly recommend this restaurant!

I arrived down town Denver and managed to find a parking space right out front of this restaurant at lunch time. I went in and was graciously greeted and seated in a nice spot. All of the waiters were professional and helpful. The wine and dish I ordered were delicious.

Outstanding restaurant and wine list. White table cloths, excellent recommendations from the waiter, attentive service. We split a salad and both entrees were superb.

We enjoyed our meal, wine, and good service...until our credit card went missing. It was then that we received great service. Our server, Dennis, was looking everywhere in the restaurant as were other servers; this spoke volumes to me about their commitment. Initially, I was concerned that our credit card was being stolen, but it became clear that it was... More

We've had dinner here on several different trips now. Located in LODO, it's across the street from the Oxford Hotel and the Cruise Room. With a modern, upscale décor it features a "cellar" of glass in the middle of the restaurant, and boasts an extensive wine list, we were provided a tablet that functioned as the wine list. Touching any... More

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
