Besides very different pizza choices, there is something for everyone & excellent service. And, if you can speak Italian or Spanish you'll have fun here.

One of the best Italian places I've eaten at. Everything is fresh. Owners are great. Beautiful place to dine or just stop in for drinks.

The service was terrible and the food was mediocre. We ordered two dinners the same, (ravioli stuffed with beef short rib in a butter and sage sauce.) she only brought one to the table. We decided to share the one meal, since it would have taken too long to get another. The ravioli was lukewarm and dry. When I asked... More

Visited during a trip to Sarasota. Well worth a visit if you are in Venice. Great lunch. Would go for dinner next time we are down this way. Recommended.

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

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.
