We stumbled into the restaurant on "date night" and were so pleasantly surprised. The wait staff was amazing and the food delicious. A perfect evening. A bit pricey for everyday but definitely has atmosphere. A perfect place for an anniversary celebration. They have a HUGE wine selection. We will definitely be back!

This is a real authentic Italian restaurant, but with a nouvelle approach, and a solid wine list. If you speak a bit of Italian you will have a fantastic reception. A bit cool on the outside, but a warm and inviting professional staff, valet parking, and super location.

This is an excellent dining experience in Denver and at their other place, Chianti, located in DTC. Everything fresh, high quality, and beautiful. Service is old school professional.

We've dined at Venice several times in the past and had excellent experiences. From top notch food to outstanding service. However our recent visit to Venice was disappointing. We had made reservations for 9:15pm on NYE, thinking this would be late enough to avoid the typical 6-8pm rush period. Sadly, the restaurant had several people waiting when we arrived at... More

We visited on New Year's Eve, so any lapses in service can be forgiven. It was busy and the crew was hustling. The prices were surprisingly fair, but the food. Just not good. Served up haphazardly (a table of 9, brought out over a lengthy period) and cold. Lobster ravioli was just not flavorful, attractive or ... well, I have... More

First visit, but not my last! The wonderful lamb ragu had me savoring each wonderful bite. I think that my obvious enthusiasm encouraged others at a neighboring table to follow suit! The waitstaff was knowledgeable and efficient and my conversation with management absolutely cemented my resolve to return.

This was the annual ITE Holiday Luncheon. It was a little crowded to move around and mingle but the food, the service and the presentation were all very well done. There was a lot of parking available. For a banquet there were several choices the basic spaghetti, salmon, chicken marsala (my selection that was very good). Even some gluten free... More

Dropped into Venice for an early dinner after a long travel day. I hadn't checked it out at my usual travel sites but not to worry. Service and food were excellent with the only problem being a melon and prosciutto appetizer that was huge! Delicious but the kind of appetizer you should share with three or four companions! Its location... More

Very upscale as in they charge an incredible price. I got pasta with seafood - lobster tale and four shrimp. A touch spicy. Beautifully sculpted salad. Huge wine list

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
