Description: 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. During the summer, we serve lunch and dinner 7 days a week; out of season we recommend calling for hours.We hope you'll join us!Rated "Very Good," ...

If you're going to be on LI's North Fork sometime, there is probably no better place to stop for dinner or lunch than TOUCH OF VENICE in Cutchogue. Formerly located in Mattituck, this restaurant offers a warm, cozy interior, friendly, attentive service and excellent cuisine. My wife and I stopped there for lunch the other day and we thoroughly enjoyed... More

Had my mom's 90th birthday party here this past weekend. Approx 35 people, from 3 yrs thru 30's (NYC foodies, everyone one of them) and beyond, thru to mom's 80 year old friends. We had a blast, and were treated SO well by Ettore (owner), his son and staff. A sunny, spacious room to the side to call our own,... More

One of the specials of the day was fluke francesca. It was done to perfection. The spinach salad was perfection and the exotic cake included in the dinner price was to die for. We were late in making reservations and could not get into our favorite at a reasonable hour so this was a second choice. It will be a... More

Visited on the last day of Restaurant Week. As an appetizer, had the eggplant sorrentino. The eggplant was perfectly cooked and very light. It was in a delicious red sauce with ricotta and mozarella cheeses. For an entree, my wife and I both had the Seafood Bradoto. It was clams, mussels, calamari, sea scallops and a prawn in a tasty...

Reviews by others seemed a bit vague so I decided to try myself. We arrived at 6 and were quickly seated, the service staff was attentive and efficient. Our server made recommendations and also was extremely flawless in her duties. We enjoyed the stuffed artichoke which I have not had one this tasty since my deceased grandmother made them every...

The service was very good, but the food was nothing special. My pasta was really undercooked, and my husbands fish dish was average. A good meal, but for the price it was nothing special.

I had the veal parm and my date had the swordfish. Both were good, solid meals....but nothing to rave about. We were pretty quickly seated at about 8:00 PM on a Friday night and the service was very good. When back in the area I'd first look to try other places, but wouldn't have a probably going back here at... More

Just average in every way except value where it is below average. If this is the best Italian restaurant on the North Fork you may want to go to the South Fork for Italian.

Since moving to the more accessible Main Road, A Touch of Venice has continued to evolve into the North Fork's best Italian restaurant, and one of the best overall. As fine dining has continued to infiltrate the area, there has been a disturbing tendency for it to go a bit Hamptonesque. ATOV has happily resisted that trend; it's as authentically... More
