This is one of the best Italien restaurants I have ever eaten in. The food is very traditional. I plan to return to New Orleans next month for the Mardi Gras season and look forward to eating at Venezia again.

We've been eating here for as long as I can remember. We had not been in the last couple of months and decided to go for pepperoni pizza. Something has definitely changed. The crust was completely different-possibly pre made. It has always been fresh and crunchy. Today it was doughy and greasy. What a disappointment!

Terrible! Tasted microwaved and old. The place was dirty, like really filthy, dust and grease everywhere. Have never had a bad meal in Nola until now, way over priced mall food is actually better

A large group (12) of us went to dinner at Venezia at 7:00 pm last night (with reservations). The restaurant was extremely busy yet they managed to seat us promptly. We had a wide range of food ranging all the way from pizza to steak with spaghetti, veal (3 different ways). EVERYTHING was served hot and delicious. The wait staff... More

Went with wife, 2 sisters, brother-in-law & 2 little ones. We not only survived but food was quite good & served fast w/friendly service. Here the best eats are daily specials IMO. I had pannéed veal w/crabmeat that tasted excellent.

Stopped in on Sunday night after arriving from the airport. I was accompanied by my uncle and cousin. It was after 6PM we had a 30 minute wait. There are two benches outside and some chairs against the bathroom wall adjacent to the bar to sit and wait. We were seated and asked for our beverage order. We each ordered... More

We had a reservation the night the Saints won and the place was packed. Although seated a little late because of the celebrations taking place, it was worth it. The pizza was spectacular, and the house salad was delicious (we split a small). Loud and lots of fun. Felt like part of the neighborhood and the staff and other patrons... More
