Great service and friendly ambience!

I had dinner twice at this location and believe they are open for lunch as well. The service was very friendly and quick. I spotted the owner both times and all the locals seem to know her. The food was great and came out quickly. They offer early bird specials for dinner at a great price and value... read more

Had breakfast here a while back. Mimosa's were great and the food was perfect. It is a nice setting and they even have an outdoor section for your dogs

We were in Venice for fourteen days and had the pleasure of dining at Ophelia's twice. I'm only sorry we didn't discover it sooner. Everyone in our party swooned over the lobster bisque and they are not an easy to please crowd. I had the toasted ravioli on both visits. They were crisp but not over-cooked. The accompanying sauce was... More

great place for dog lovers. Always pleased with my meal and service. The owners are there quite a bit which seems to make it run well

The only times my wife and I have gone to this restaurant was when we were with a group of friends who enjoy Italian food. Sometimes, they get quite busy so there is a wait, but worth it. They have a bar where you can buy drinks while waiting, and can meet some very interesting people, especially during the season.... More

I have been going here for 7 years and will not return. this second "bad review" is nothing but a death sentence. Two seniors trying to run a well established restaurant and failing at it. Ordered the lunch special of "prime rib sandwich with onions and au jus. The smell of rotten meat hit my nose as soon as it... More

We would like to make this right with you. Jim apologizes for his slow reaction to the problem at the time. He is hard of hearing and usually will call someone to help out. I wish that someone else had gotten involved. We were shocked to hear of this, and immediately took action. We strive to serve the best quality... More

Exploring new area of Florida and happened across Ophelia's Pasta house. We were warmly greeted and settled into a cozy outdoor covered booth. We had a very Pinot Grigio house wine, and ice cold Stella. We had the PEI mussels and man were they spot on, we had the mussels in white wine sauce. the sauce was accented with Pernod.... More

Start off with a free mimosa and enjoy your quick service and delicious meal. My son loves the chocolate chip pancakes and I love the custom omelets and potatoes. A local hang out.

We arrived a little early for them I think, there was no one at the front and a server wandered over and said "Oh, sorry, booth or table" . The food is good, not great, but I am not a pasta fanatic and didn't have any pasta. The appetizer was good place was friendly. I really don't like the cloth... More
