The Venetian was a study in old world style service and fine cuisine, my experience was not unlike dining in Amalfi, Italy.

Michael and Fiorita have owned this restaurant for many years and have a huge devoted following. The menu is much the same each time you go and that is not a bad thing. Quaint atmosphere and very relaxing. Great pre-show menus before local theatre events.

Recently needed to meet a colleague for a business lunch and settled on Torrington as a meeting point. The Venetian was a logical choice since many friends from the area had so highly recommended it...and they were all right! The food was simply excellent...and the atmosphere was old world charming. The waitress was friendly and didn't try to rush us... More

My husband and I, along with another couple, ate here last winter - bad decision!!! It was snowing out and there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. The waitress had no personality whatsoever. Our service was absolutely terrible. Our food was mediocre to say the least. There are too many good restaurants around - I doubt we will ever go... More

The bad first since it is short. The meal took 2 hours for one shared salad and two entries. That being said. The food is excellent. The table side made Caeser Salad was delicious. I had Rigatoni Bolognese and my wife had Chick Parm. Both were prepared well and the portions were average sized. Overall, the service was terrible. You... More

Went here last night and was rather disappointed. Food was okay I guess, my gnocchi was so dry I asked for more sauce. Our server was like a robot, never smiled & only brought you something after you asked for it. The booth was so uncomfortable, we couldn't wait to leave. Besides that, the people in the booth behind us... More

Italian cooking at its best is ALL ABOUT respecting fresh ingredients. Everything we ate--from the salad to the meat to the pasta--was fresh and delicious. This is not nouvelle, cutting-edge cuisine. But the most charming element of this place is its timelessness. (Such is the American Dream that) family-run, Italian restaurants like this are becoming anachronisms...and how much poorer we...

This place came highly recommended and it was certainly good but not outstanding. Service was on the slow side and the waitress was not knowledgeable about the menu. The table side prepared Caesar salad was excellent.

Al dente - never heard about it! Overcooked pastas, vegetables. Service - nothing to complain about. Nothing to rave about either. Overall - nothing special - overpriced, boring Italian-American food.
