Little Venice was closed for renovations during our recent visit to HHI. A sign in the window indicated they will re-open under a new name. Unsure if it will be under the same management.

Nice little place on the harbor with outdoor seating. Food is alright not spectacular but tasty nonetheless. Good place to relax and unwind.

The Harbor Side setting was beautiful and the food was very good. The service could have been a little faster but all and all the dining experience was good. It was what to place before we dined that upset me a bit. There were four of us and we went down to walk around the harbor side before we ate.... More

I mean seriously don't waste your money. The food was awful, the service was just as bad. Did it once, but never again.

Over the years, I have always chosen Little Venice and the place to dine when in Shelter Cove. Love whatever they do with my favorite entrees.

Bad dining experience! Location and view is absolutely lovely!! They have been on the harbour since it was built. They need to work on the food though!

It was about 8 pm on a Saturday, two previous restaurants had long waits. So we took a chance at Little Venice since the view of the marina is good. We had stopped here a couple of years ago with a group; husband had linguine with clams and it was delicious, I had only an appetizer that night, can't remember... More

We ate here on a busy summer night, the first night of the summer fireworks to be exact. Shelter Cove, where the restaurant is located, was packed with people. Everyone was watching the concert and waiting for fireworks. Well, it was very easy to get a table at Little Venice at that time and that should have been a clue!... More

We happened to stop in here after riding our bikes to get some dinner. The service was extremely slow and the portion sizes are very small for the amount you pay. The adult spaghetti and meatballs is what you would normally think of as a children's portion! Would not return.

I travel to Hilton Head quite frequently. I have been to Little Venice many times, and I don't think I will need to go back. I have given them the benefit of the doubt, but the servers & management are still unfriendly, and curt. While the outdoor dining is nice, the staff lacks in customer service. When I bring my...
