“Lovely restaurant and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Our party of three had a wonderful meal here. There was an extensive menu but since I wasn't too hungry, I had an appetizer for dinner, "Napolene Vegetariano" which was simply gorgeous to look at and eat. The waiter was charming and we enjoyed watching him pour from the fancy wine decanter. The others in my party also enjoyed their dinners. Finished with lemoncello which brought back many memories of Southern Italy (was there most recently in May).

“Having a Happy Birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Three things about Venice Ristorante stand out. First, the location is easy to get to and parking is one-half block away. Next, the service is extraordinary. It was great not only by our waiter, but by the manager. Things were calm and on time and well done. Next, the food was exceptional. Salads, zucchini soup, veal and salmon and the free desserts--hazelnut gelato, lime graniti, bread pudding and tiramisu, were all outstanding. All in all, it was a wonderful birthday meal and experience.

“Brava!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Went here for my birthday dinner and had wonderful service. Great wine selection and excellent food. I had a small appetite so stuck with appetizers for dinner; outstanding caprese salad and an ahi tuna dish that was perfectly presented and delicious.

“As my son would say - This is the bomb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We found this restaurant on the web, what a strike of luck - I should have bought a lottery ticket. We drove directly to the restaurant after driving in from Aspen - parking was easy even though there was a ball game going on. We were seated at a nice table near their impressive wine cellar. Everything - and I mean everything was great. No, not great, spectacular. We ordered five different things and each dish was an "A". My daughter couldn't find something she wanted on the menu and the waiter just asked her what she wanted. She told him and he brought it out - the chef just created it and she ate every bite. The chicken dish was excellent and the pastas were really some of the best we've had outside of Tuscany. The wine list was large and priced fair. Lastly, the waiter was really very good. The only hick-up of the evening was when the brought the wine and it was a different year. The waiter didn't mention that he was bringing a wine of a different vintage - a big no no in my book. When I pointed this out, another waiter who was standing by says "there is no differences in the wines". I point out that if the year doesn't matter then why put it in the list. You make a good point sir. We both laughed, but still. All in all - a must go when in Denver.

“Imponente!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

The concierge at our hotel suggested this restaurant and we were more than pleased with his recommendation. We were warmly greeted on our arrival and seated as requested by a window where we had plenty of opportunity to people watch while enjoying our meal. Our server and her assistant, were attentive and knowledgeable. The food and wines were excellent. We have been raving about this restaurant to everyone we've met in CO.
