Service was either great, or terrible. Loved the atmosphere inside, or on the patio. The food was prepared well. Great coffee too!

Great food, great service, great atmosphere and an incredible wine list. What more could you want from a restaurant. I have been dining here for several years. I have eaten at a lot of the new restaurants in Midland, however Venezia's is still the best and has withstood the test of time. I make it a point to eat at... More

This is a nice restaurant tucked back int o a shopping center. The food is exceptional, the staff friendly, and the service excellent. I had a lemon chicken piccata that was amazing, just the right level of acidity. My two dining mates each had a shrimp dish and both were yummy. Their only complaint was shrimp served in rich sauces... More

I was speaking at a dinner meeting so I appreciated the help getting the laptop hooked up with the monitor, etc. The salads were fresh and delicious and the appetizers were amazing with huge fried shrimp and a giant carb leg already opened and prepared for easy and whole removal of crab meat.

Thanks so much for the thoughtful review, Thomas! I'm glad you enjoyed the salad, shrimp, and crab leg. Of course I wish you were able to enjoy the steak and cake fresh in-house, but what's better than waking up to German chocolate cake in your fridge the next day? The next time you're craving Italian, we'd love to have see... More

It had been quite some time since my wife and I ate dinner at Venezia. We returned last weekend for what was a leisurely and enjoyable meal. It appears that the restaurant has been renovated since our last visit. The interior seems a bit lighter and furniture appears to be new. Although we had reservations, we had to wait 20... More

There are no great italian places in Midland so obviously this place is not great either. It is okay though, better than Luigi's. Dessert is probably the best part of it. Food is okay, service is okay. Nothing special here. The pasta is not very good,

The wine list can be intimidating if you aren't a wine drinker, but I am sure they will be able to suggest something great if you ask. Besides wine, they also serve imported and domestic beers and of course tea, sodas, etc; however, I did not see any liquor or mixed drinks on the menu. The service was okay, could... More

Our group consisted of four couples. The women arrived first and the men came in a separate taxi.

Venezia is always good--even better when the patio is open. I would say they have one of the best wine lists in the city, and they are priced fair. I recommend any of the pastas or specials. Skip the antipasto plate--it lacks anything special--just meats and cheeses stacked on the plate. Great Caesar salad.
