“Great Italian ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Not only do they carry tons of Italian stuff but they are also very knowledgeable. If you are planning to entertain they can offer great advice if you ask them to...and you should ask as their staff will offer advice that will elevate your dinner plans to a different level,

“"Welcome to Italia"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

We had the pleasure of visiting, eating and buying at Venda on Monday the 30th of Dec. This venue is a touch of Italy and a welcome place to find most any type of world class Italian food.
This is the closest you will get to Italy without traveling there.
What a treasure !

“As Good As It Gets!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Wow! From the service to the perfectly prepared pasta dishes, this lunch was spot on by every standard. The bread is delicious, the pastas just sheer Home made delights and the atmosphere even more authentic. We had a wonderful experience from beginning to the inch thick cappuccino foam at the end. Not one bite was left in anyone's plate which is a real testament to the deliciously prepared food. Even the busboy smiled the entire time we were there! Don't miss an opportunity to experience this perfection!

“Delightful & unpretentious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A great place to combine a freshly prepared lunch with post-dining grocery shopping. The lunch menu is simple and typical Italian fare; prices are quite reasonable. Two courses and a glass of wine may cost $25 and is complemented by excellent bread. After lunch grocery shopping offers a wonderful selection of Italian foods, both imported and prepared locally. The deli has a great selection and the cheese counter is well stocked. Small packages of frozen ravioli with a variety of fillings are made in-house.

“Unreal Selection of Groceries, Prepared Foods & More”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

When you enter Venda you are immediately facing a selection of prepared foods, cheeses, deli meats, olives, mushrooms, meats and other edibles in cases that are in a large oval that probably measures over 125' in length.

Every thing is fresh and the deli meats are always sliced to order and offer all the basics: genoa salami, mortedella, Capitola, imported prosciutto, and much more. The selection of cheeses and olives is terrific; as are the choices of prepared foods, which are super.

In addition they offer their own pastas both frozen and fresh and great very flavorful sauces. They also offer groceries, cooking accessories and Fresh Breads from their own bakery which is just across the street.

In addition to all of the above they offer a good meal at Costantino's which is located inside Venda. Good food at reasonable prices.
