This was one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. The service was excellent, the wine selection was superb and the food was fantastic. There aren't enough superlatives to describe how great this experience was. It takes more than great food to make it more than just a nice dinner. Our waiter was very attentive and extremely friendly and... More

If you're a big Broncos fan, then yes Peyton Manning apparently eats here. In fact lots of patrons seem to be return customers. I really wanted to like this place. I showed up without reservations, got seated promptly, service was excellent and even though it's in a strip mall, the decor was white tablecloth. You can sit at the bar... More

On the advice of the concierge at our hotel, we made a reservation at Venice Ristorante Italiano. The very pleasant restaurant is located one block off of 16th Street Mall and has old world charm with crisp, white tablecloths, plentiful staff, and elegant ambiance. With all of that, the environment is very warm and friendly with at least five staff... More

I recently had the pleasure of dining here. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was outstanding. We were a table of nine and everyone got a taste of each other's meal. Everything was so delicious! If ever again I find myself in downtown Denver, I will not think of eating anywhere but here. A real treat!

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.

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
