We been to the Venetian several times and have found the food to be very good and the staff has always been friendly and helpful. It's not a big restaurant and is very cozy. Neither my wife or I have a favorite dish as they've all been very good. Depending on the time of day you visit will determine how... More

Adam suggested a pizza, this time. He had me at fresh chicken chunks. The pizza might take a little longer due to "fresh chicken chunks cooked to order. Not too much later, our chicken, pesto sauce, artichokes and onions emerged from kitchen. My first bite was like no other pizza. The wonderful chicken and other ingredients did not even outshine...

Recently I had a Happy Hour visit here and the burger I ordered was EXCELLENT. It was a nice thick old style burger and the beer prices were good. I wish they would continue their Happy Hour through the weekend as I am sure this would increase their business. We have been here for lunches and Happy Hours other time... More

We've gone in here a few times and I guess just wishing something would get better does not work. The service is just OK, the food is just OK and the atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired. My wife has asked that I not take her back there again. I think that is a big sign.

Quick happy hour dinner with friends showed a rather small menu selection. Prices were right for what you recieved. Cocktails were good. Would I go again? Yes. However, I would like to see a larger more home town menu. The smaller plates would be great for after one of the good theater presentations.

I think this restaurant is a nice cross between Italian and American. There is lasagna, three kinds of ravioli, pizza and calzone, stuffed meatloaf, the usual pasta dishes and a nice selection of fish, steak, and salads in addition to burgers. This is the first time I have had dinner at the Venetian and the three men I was eating... More

Started off just wishing to have Italian food with a dog friendly environment. Went to Bring Fido, found this gem. Service was amongst the best ever!! The pizza special (which I wish I could get the recipe to re-create) was absolutely mind blowing. Very casual outside sidewalk seating (the dog friendly part), but for others, the inside is exquisite. Used... More

The Last few times we have eaten at the Venetian the salads have been wilted and look like they have been sitting out for some time. Entrees are just not prepared the way they were when they first opened. We will not return to eat there.
