We had a really great experience at this restaurant. The escargot appetizer was buttery and went well with the bread they served. The entrees were fabulous. My wife had the salmon and she remarked that it was the best salmon she had ever had. I had the frutti di mare which wasn't on the menu but I inquired about it... More

Been several times and food is always disappointing. It is not fresh. It all tastes processed, especially the sauces. There is too much on the menu to keep food fresh maybe? Wine list is good and decor is fine. No problem with service. Just wish the menu was revamped and cooks retrained.

When you are looking for a nice evening out - the food is excellent, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is perfect. Whenever I have a special occasion, this is my preference.

I don't really care for Italian food, but every time I eat at Venezia's I am always happy I went. I sometimes get the Veal Parmigiana, but the steaks and the fish are always very good as well. It is a bit pricey, but they serve large portions, so you can have leftovers for lunch the following day.

Very rarely have I totally pushed away a dish after 2 bites but sadly that is what I had to do to my beef stroganoff when we went to a Valentine's Day dinner. First off they at least doubled if not tripled the prices for their Valentine's menu which I guess was expected. $60 for a steak is a little... More

We came for Valentine's Day dinner. Prices were inflated horribly bad. The waitstaff that brought us water and bread ended up slamming the water down on the table and spilling half of it on the table. We ordered escargot and no sooner did we got our appetizer our food came out. Which means our food was pre-made. The stroganoff was... More

We had another amazing dinner. I was a little shocked about the special NYE menu but after the first bite of my steak, I realized it was well worth the price. The servers were friendly, fun and made the evening even better. Midland was iced over on this night, so they were not busy, but I would recommend making reservations... More

Personally, I prefer Venezia over Riazzies. Better and more reasonable wine selection and, for me, the food is just better. I try something different every time I go and have not been disappointed yet. Be sure to call for reservations. EVERYBODY is eating out in Midland, Texas now and there's a crowd everywhere you go. You can "come-as-you-are" or dress... More
