“Tasty Pizza πŸ•”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

This restaurant was recommended by the shuttle bus driver upon arriving to town when we asked for pizza. Good choice! We dined early so the restaurant was not busy, but by the time we left most tables were full. Quick, efficient service. The salad was fresh arrived quickly, pizza shortly after finishing salad. Waitress was attentive refilling drinks. The price of the meal was a little more expensive than expected for pizza and salad.

“Decent Food + Bad Service = Meh.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Ate there while in town for a campus tour of Ole Miss. Food is decent: great spinach dip and personal pizzas were offset by the salmon salad that literally had no salmon on it. Service was horrible. When the waitress bothered to acknowledge us at all (which was infrequently) she radiated indifference. Salad's not right? Acted like it was entirely beyond not only her control, but that of the entire kitchen staff. Bottom line: Go to Soulshine.

“I can't believe the best calamari I ever had was in Mississippi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

How can it be that the best calamari I have ever had was in Oxford, Mississippi? The lemon aioli accompanying the dish had the perfect amount of black pepper and lemon, and this is why Old Venice topped an expensive, swanky restaurant in Switzerland to be my new go-to calamari place. I sat on their small balcony (the "Burgundy Room"), overlooking the square in Oxford, and devoured other appetizers as well -- nice plump mozzarella sticks and a Thai-chile shrimp dish that also received my thumbs-up. The cutest waiter in America made albino grasshoppers - and they were every bit as good as the regular ol' green ones. Old Venice was one of VERY few places on the square to be open on the 4th of July, and what a pleasant holiday it turned out to be for me. Glad I discovered Old Venice.

“Yummy Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

We were eating here at least twice a month for a while but took a little break. There aren't a ton of Italian restaurants in Oxford to pick from so Old Venice works if you need a pasta fix. Their pizzas are great.

I like the atmosphere there as well and usually you can get a table even when the Square is busy.

“Late dinner awesomeness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

It was rainy, we were tired and hungry and didn't want to think too hard about what to order. The bakes manicotti and the eggplant parm were wonderful! Service was great too.
