Very good choice for Italian - please try the Potato Gnocchi

The restaurant is in the Venetian Hotel located in Cotai Area across the bridge from Macau. There are a lot of good Italian restaurants in Macau and I have tried a number of them, but the food quality and service here is probably about the best. If you have not tried Gnocchi, which are Italian... read more

Don't know if the regular fare is better. We had the promotional lunch of 148 per person where salad, pastas and pizzas were on offer. Really ordinary - pastas were a shade better than the dreary pizzas. Honestly by no standard it was cheap. We went there coz we like Italian food. Obviously a popular place - we got the... More

Excellent food and service. Pizzas and pasta were my favourite dishes! Can become a little pricy when you factor in wines and deserts so for those on more of a budget I recommend coming for the daily lunch buffet. Romantic outdoor seating available overlooking the pool and hotel gardens. Definitely worth a visit.

It is a nice restaurant at the Venetian Macao Complex. The food is good an well cooked. I would recommend the chicken, the steak and the codfish. The service is nice. The list of wines is at the international level. The Portuguese wines (Macau was afterall a Portuguese territory) are, therein, not very well represented. The management prefered to settle... More
