“Always a great experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We have been going to the Venetian for over 30 years and it remains to be consistently wonderful. You can spend an a relaxing evening here. The wait staff has a real sense of timing so that everything comes out in just the right amount of time and, if you choose, you can spend as long as you wish enjoying the evening.

“Fantastick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Everything from the bread to the dessert is superb! This is a very nice restaurant with a great wait staff. The owners even come around to the table to say hello. We have been going to the restaurant for 8 years and every meal is better than the previous one.

“Pretty good Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

If you are in Torrington there are limited dining options that aren't in the Fast Food category-this is one that is reasonably good & reasonably priced. I stress "reasonably". Three of us dined recently and with no wine/alcohol, the bill was about $100...3 appetizers & 3 entrees. The spaghetti carbonara was pretty good, although not authentically made--they used cream as opposed to eggs, as it should be made. The potato gnocchi were made in house so we had high hopes, but they were basically rolled out dough logs and cut way too big--like chunks of pasta rather than little dumplings. The third entree we had was 3-cheese manicotti--the cheese was hardly to be found; they were flat with very little filling. Both the gnocchi & manicotti had the same tomato sauce which was ok, but tasted too sweet. Portions are large. All in all an OK meal. The atmosphere is average-a little dated.I wouldn't run to go, but again it's one of few choices in the area for non fast food .

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

Michael is a delightful host at the Venetian. I love the seafood risotto and other special "venetian" dishes he prepares.
