We arrived early evening well-dressed for a birthday dinner. Hostess refused to seat us at a 4-up table stating "reserved for guests of 4". We were escorted to the "café" side and seated at a 4-up. Ravioli "special" was very dry and server unpleasant when we asked for more sauce. She was more unpleasant when we requested shaved parmesan instead... More

This was the first time my friends ever ate in an authentic Italian restaurant! I was in heaven. I haven't been to Tuscany in 3 years and I felt like I was at home! Our server was outstanding! I said pick out everything from appitizers and I asked him to pick me out what he thought I'd like and he... More

Friends of ours invited down to Venice for a birthday dinner and claimed that this was one of the best Italian restaurants on the Gulf Coast; setting the bar pretty high for a well traveled former New Yorker. We arrived around three with a party too large to be accommodated in the lovely bistro seating streetside, the manager invited us... More

Service was good, waiter was informed and gave accurate descriptions of the specials . Nice bar and wine choices. The food was good, however, the shrimp in my risotto were overcooked and chewy. Lovely atmosphere, would try it again but not the best Italian food I have had in Sarasota County, but certainly in Venice it was the star.

So many places to choose from while visiting Venice FL. I'm glad I picked this one. All the local people come here. The food was fantastic.

We stopped in for dinner and decided to sit at the tables outside. Our waiter was in a hurry for us to order and kept trying to push the daily special. we opted for the pizza with the homemade sausage. All in all the pizza was average and the sauce was lacking in flavor. This was the first and last... More

We ate here during the week following Labor Day so the town was almost empty and we had great service and meal at Made In Italy. Seated at an outside table, service was fast and our waiter was very helpful and provided great recommendations. We split a tasty house salad and a great tasting pizza, followed by cappuccino and creme... More

Good authentic Italian food, the Italian people working there adds a nice touch. Love the way they present pizza on a collective board when more than one pizza is ordered. Service was good and friendly

We were excited to experience this authentic Italian restaurant. Our waiter seemed distracted, the seating was crowded, the food was so so and the cost was overpriced. Our simple lunch of pasta and a salad, iced tea costs $60.00 for 2. :(
