Special Occasion Spot

This restaurant is a good place to go for a special occasion. It's full of personality and charm. Individually owned and operated, it sits in the middle of the city on a walking mall--great for an after dinner stroll. The food is excellent. Service is great. It's a bit pricey so save it for... read more

Three of us ate here early on a Friday evening. Our server came over after five minutes or so as she was attending to another table. I ordered a martini and my wife and daughter had soda and water. I usually don’t comment on drinks, but his one needs a comment. It was the tiniest martini I have ever received... More

This is my favorite place to eat in Winchester VA. The Cheese steaks are out of this world!! I have never had a bad meal here. I have been visiting 15+ years.

Although this is a little out of they way to get to, well worth the trip. The menu is extensive, and the prices are so reasonable. Nice old world atmosphere. The Meat Lover's Pizza my husband ordered was sublime, so light and so tasty. I had the fried calamari with an interesting sauce vs. the usual marina, plus the great... More

We stopped for the night in Winchester on route to FL. We only saw two restaurants in the vicinity of the Holiday Inn Express and the clerk at the desk suggested the Venice. We did not have high expectations but we were very pleasantly surprised. My husband had the minestrone and we shared a dinner salad (with homemade dressing), a... More

You've got to eat at this place. It's the real deal. I think the owner waited on us and he was awesome. Great guy! My son had the pizza and it was great. We had the mussels app and it was so good. We dipped the wonderful bread sticks in the sauce. Yummy! My husband had the super italian sub... More

The interior of this restaurant is very nicely decorated. The service was very friendly, although a tad slow. The food was wonderful! We started with the fresh mussels in a garlic and wine broth. They were generous with the breadsticks that we used to sop up every bit of the broth. We enjoyed the Seafood Fradiavolo. They warn that it... More

I've been coming here for years, and I always make a point of stopping by for a meal. I'm from New Jersey, so I'm quite picky about my Italian food. I never imagined I would find Italian food of this caliber in Winchester, VA. It doesn't matter what you have...pizza, pasta, sausage and peppers, any entree, the food is guaranteed... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for many years and what we have ordered (baked spaghetti, manicotti, lasagna, baked ziti, ravioli, calzone, pizza etc.) has always been delicious and affordable. Salad and breadsticks are included with every generously portioned entrée. Yes the décor is lacking, but the restaurant and bathrooms are clean and the service has always been friendly... More
