This place was fancy. The food was delicious and the wait staff was excellent. The decor was very inviting. I think this would be an excellent place to take a date.

Family of four out to celebrate family occasion. Seated right away. Served water and and bread promptly by helper (not waiter). He came by another couple times to refill the water over next 20 minutes while we waited for a waiter. Finally asked him to get a waiter for us. Waiter came and apologized saying no one had informed him... More

They absolutely have the best steak in town! Wine was of course wonderful and enjoyed by many of my companions. Atmosphere is great for couples, big groups and some family, just not small children. I actually haven't had anything I didn't just love at Venezia's!

I am new to Midland, and went to the Venezia to have a dinner date with my boyfriend. I ordered escargot for an appetizer. I had never had cooked snails before, but they were very delicious! The ceasar salad before the meal was crisp with just the right amount of cheese and dressing. The Sicilian chicken that I had as... More

Great venue for business dinners, but also perfect for a special occasion with your family and friends. Extensive wine selection and a menu that offers many selections that you cannot get elsewhere in the Midland area. The escargot is out of this world.

THe items on the listed menu don't match what is served. The head chief seems to feel brandy makes everything better which is definitely not the case. My husband got the pork chops with potatoes and veggies and it made him sick, which after years in the Navy is VERY hard to do. My pasta was the pasta al samone,... More

We love going here for our anniversary or birthdays. Always first quality food and service. I have tried almost everything on the menu and never been disappointed. It's hard to find room for desert after such a fine meal but do! Many good choices. Actually carry on a conversation very nice atmosphere.

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.
