It's a quite unusual location - on the corner in a shopping complex, but they've been hugely inventive in turning this unit into an original and attractive restaurant. We had booked but we were surprised how full it was early on a Wednesday evening. Splendid antipasti (we shared as it was huge) The best bread I've had on this US... More

My wife and I recently went here for the first time because of a friend's recommendation. I made reservation for 6:30pm on a Saturday night. When we arrived we were told they were running about 15 mins behind which wasn’t too bad. We were pleasantly surprised when they offered us a glass of wine while we waited, a very nice... More

Routinely, when we want a quality meal we end up at Venice. Last evening, once again we were not disappointed. Service was excellent. Ambiance is NYC like, pleasant room but definitely not quiet. Food was excellent. Halibut with garlic, kalamato olives, capers, tomatoes over fresh veggies, veal dishes fantastic. Wine, Lucente, great. Have never had a bad meal, experience here.... More

Vernice s a bit of Italy in Denver. Very good food, very good vino, very good service in an environment full of people, conversation, laughter and activity. What a great restaurant!

I had set up a group of 17 friends to meet at this restaurant. I had eaten there before and once again came to the same conclusion. Food was okay, nothing that really jumped out that said "I have to come back here for this"...... I had ordered the shrimp scampi, I can't be certain of the price but i... More

Our third trip to Venice Ristorante, and the food is still well above average. The atmosphere? Eh. More on that later. The bread basket was outstanding, but the crusts fly off at the slightest touch: after a few pieces the table cloth looked as if it needed a leaf blower. The Wife was seen clearing a spot for her salad.... More

This place is inconsistent. I had the spaghetti with lobster and shrimp...or so it was described- The "shrimp" consisted of about 4 really tiny things that I have only seen in cans and used for gumbos...tasteless and almost non-existent. The lobster was a small cold water tail that was plopped on top of my pasta-still attached to the shell. That... More

We made reservations for the day after Valentine's day through Open Table, which indicated that 5:15 pm was the closest available reservation time to our desired time of 6 pm. When we arrived, the restaurant was almost empty, and we were taken to a TINY table in their new dining room. After a while, it became evident that we could... More

We have eaten at Venice Greenwood Village twice now. Good food both times with professional service. This is a BUSY restaurant. The staff is flying around everywhere. We were celebrating my wife's birthday there last night. When I booked the reservation I asked for a quiet table and let them know we were celebrating a big birthday. Here's the problem...There...
