Venezia Restaurant is an Italian Cuisine legend in Midland, Texas. We have enjoyed the food and service for many years. It is an elegant restaurant for Midland and the service is very very good! Try to leave room for one of their specialty deserts!

When I want fine dining in Midland, TX, there are really not very many choices. One place that always delivers in spades is Venezia. I went there last night with family (all adults) and was not disappointed. I had the Escargot and cleaned the dish, the sauce was wonderful. Our salads were great (Wedge, Greek) and the entrees were wonderful.... More

One thing you have to know when eating out in Midland: they cannot hire enough servers. Seriously, there are restaurants that have had to close due to being unable to find cooks and servers. Venezia was understanbly understaffed, but the food wa very good and worth the wait. We sat on the patio due to the crowd inside, but the... More

I was on an overnight business trip with several colleagues, and I convinced them to come eat dinner here with me after our training class. My boyfriend had taken me here for a romantic lunch last year. The restaurant was as good as I remembered. We all loved our food, had great service, nice atmosphere. One of my colleagues said...

We had a lovely dinner. The wait staff was attentive without hovering. The wine selection is outstanding. Our dinner was delicious and the left-overs were, too! Venezia's is one of the nicest restaraunt a in Midland. The food is always good and you can have a conversation with your dinner companions!

Went there for the first time to celebrate a friends birthday. The food was great but the staff helping our large party made our evening stressful. Everyone has to pay at the same time even if you have separate checks. We were forced to leave cash with another guest just so we could leave. The waiter refused to cash us... More

Wonderful food at this white table cloth restaurant which is perfect for a fine meal, romantic dinner, or special occasion. Not on the main street, it's tucked behind other establishments.

We ate at Venezia Saturday night for my son's 23rd birthday on the recommendation of a business associate. This was one of the best dinners that we have had in Midland. Venezia looks as if it was originally built as a Mexican restaurant which leads to some interesting oddities, but overall it is charming. The main room is cozy with... More

First, let me thank you for the excellent review! The building was actually built as a landscape nursery in 1959. At that time Wadley which was a dirt road was named after the owner of the Wadley grocery store. Los Patios Nursery housed 3 original patios. Our fireplace room-the first room you walk into was originally one of those patios.... More
