It's ok.

Had last night before the Vince Gill concert. Greeted nicely, seated promptly as we had reservations (though seated in the main thoroughfare). They appeared to be unprepared for concert-goers. However food was ok...nothing wrong and nothing great. I was confused a bit with the "half boiled potato... read more

The Venetian is a old fashioned Italian restaurant with a steady clientele of patrons who go there more out of habit and remembrance than for the pleasure of its offerings. The food is passable more often than not, but nothing great and occasionally awful. The proprietor, Michael, is a warm and splendid host with a towel hanging from his wrist... More

We have been going to the Venetian in Torrington Connecticut for over 20 years and have never had anything but a perfect experience. We had Mother's Day dinner there this past Sunday, and all we can say is another perfect dining experience! The Venetian is a very special restaurant, that is so hard to find in today's world. Having dinner,... More

This reminds me of our time spent in NY in Little Italy and those little gems that has you saying, Wow, just Wow... Pasta, house made, sauces are authentic as the women making them with the integrity and love past down from generations. Every dish, every starter, is meticulously executed with the attention to balancing of flavors and the simplicity... More

This is the best restaurant in Torrington - bar none! We had a family party a few years ago, cousins from Italy and their friends and our cousin Paolo said - "Best Italian Food in America at the end of the meal!" He was staying in NYC with his friends. You should make a reservation on weekends and if the... More

Before taking in a show at the Warner Theatre in Torrington on Jan. 23, we had dinner at the Venetian. We had eaten there many times before and it was always good. Mike Dilullo has owned and managed this restaurant for over 40 years. It is by far the best in town. We chose our favorite on the menu, veal... More

This place is over. It was pretty good (never "great") but acceptable and reasonably priced. Now, it's over priced with low quality, horrible service and the most exhausted decor in town. Time to close up shop, me thinks. And thanks for the memories.

Often in reading reviews, we note the promise "We'll be back," and wonder if it actually happens. Since our last review, my wife and I have been to the Venetian over a dozen times. No need to repeat what we and others have become accustomed to; excellent food and service and friendship. Yes, it's all there. Rather, I'd like to... More

If you are looking for real Italian cooking made with fresh ingredients then hurry to the Venetian. The atmosphere and the staff add to the fine dining experience. Their homemade pastas and sauces are excellent! You will not be disappointed!
