Established in 1989 Touch of Venice is a family owned and operated restaurant serving Long Island's North Fork for over 20 years.We have full bar, a private room for catering; and our outside patio is the perfect setting to enjoy a delicious Bellini. We designed our menu to combine traditional Italian classics with a creative, contemporary twist. We use locally-sourced fresh fish and produce, all-natural meats, and specialty Italian imports. All deserts are prepared on premises, including Barbara's famous Italian cheesecake. We pay close attention to our wine list and tailor our selections to compliment the cuisine. Our wine list includes regional Italian classics and local North Fork wines. Touch of Venice is open year-round.

Nice complement to our visit to this wonderful area

Very good choices. I had a wonderful summer salad and risotto with calamari paired with a local Merlot. We will have to return to venture further

Truly excellent meal! This local haunt offers dining al fresco and outdoor live music. My friend and I shared the salad with mozzarella, the stuffed artichoke (to die for). I got the summer pasta which was outrageous. The noodles must have been homemade. The vegetables were farm fresh and perfectly cooked over a delicious sauce. The wine was perfection. I... More

We recently celebrated my parents' 80th birthdays at Touch of Venice. 23 of us dined in a private room that holds up to 50 people. The room is spacious yet intimate and has windows overlooking a courtyard. It even includes access to an exclusive bathroom. Brian, the chef/owner, was a pleasure to work with during every step of the planning.... More

Expensive considering what they serve. I guess if you drink enough alcohol or are in a large group of diners you might not notice that your meal is not very good.

The welcoming staff was outstanding. Once seated, we had a terrific stuffed artichoke. The calimari appetizer was tasty and very tender. The sauce was worthy of the "bread dip!" Dinners were good. Meat was well prepared, eg: veal , chicken. Pasta could have been a bit less mushy and a bit more flavorful. Vegetables were fresh and crunchy. Good wine... More

Having moved from its former waterfront Mattituck location ( now inhabited by the horrid Paces Dockside) A Touch Of Venice has wonderful outdoor seating, but with the threat of thunderstorms approaching we chose to sit indoors. I ordered Peroni on tap with a special rigatoni with sausage and spicy cherry tomato sauce that was just as good as momma made... More

After passing by the restaurant several times we finally decided to try it. Big mistake My husband and I ordered a blossom pasta.. Nothing more than some sliced zucchini in a tasteless bland pasta. We then ordered the wild shrimp ... Three shrimp in again a tasteless sauce for 26.00 The waiter tried to get us to order appetizers and... More

My wife and I were staying at a nearby B &B and decided to give a Touch of Venice another try (we dined at the restaurant back in October 2014). The food was okay, as it was back in October, but it was not memorable. As an example, my wife's shrimp entree, for $26, had only three medium sized shrimp... More

I was not impressed in the slightlest! The alcohol was more expensive than my meal. We were treated like we didn't belong. Yes we were dressed casual but not sloppy and our waitress took 13 mins to just acknowledge us. The food was okay but definitely not worth the price!

The place was booked but the bar serves the full dinner menu, and Rich the bartender was great. The title is the exact phrase my girlfriend used as we dinned on our main courses. She had the Rigatoni and I had the Garganelli and while mine was good too, I was still a little jealous as her's was perfect. Aside... More
