Above average, but not great

Joined friends for dinner last week. Food was very good, but not great. Ran out of bourbon for featured drink. Nothing special about the salads or main course. Great location in an up and coming part of town. Waitress had too many tables and we had to go to the front desk to check out. Just... read more

Visiting Denver again we decided to return to Venice Restaurante where we had enjoyed an excellent dinner two years ago with the same two friends we would dine with that night. The food was excellent although in fairness both my wife and my friend's wife felt the Caesar salad was overdressed and too salty. All of the entrees were well... More

Wonderful dining experience. My wife and I enjoyed a Chianti Classico wine, perfect with classically prepared Italian entrees. The service is outstanding as well. Be sure to make a reservation and ask for outside if the weather allows. Beautiful.

This restaurant is well-renowned in the Denver area for having some of the best Italian food in the entire Denver area. You definitely need to get a reservation and plan it for a special occasion because it is expensive.

Ok, you've read the other reviews, right? All the positive ones are right on the money. Chose this because my travel buddy Tina wanted Italian. She said it was absolutely the best she's ever had. She had the fettuccini Alfredo which she said must've been homemade because it was nothing like she's ever had. I had the raviolis w butternut... More

When going to Denver, do not miss Venice Ristorante Italiano!! We really enjoyed our meal at this authentic locally owned Italian restaurant. It is located across the Union Station near 16th Street and Wynkoop St. If you can, take the Free 16th St. Mall Bus and get off Wynkoop; walk one block to restaurant. The food is so nicely presented... More
