This restaurant is loaded with ambience and friendly, attentive staff. Featuring foods with an Italian flavor, their menu offers enough variation to please everyone. I have two nit picky negatives: They tend to put too much sauce on their dishes. The daily soup doesn't have a lot of variation as they seem to have mushroom soup most of the time.... More

Right downtown is this jewel of a place on Main Street. Super for people watching, good food and at the entrance of a restored theater. What more do you want?

Low-key vibe and always reliably delicious food. They have the best Hungarian Mushroom Soup ever, great dinner specials (lots of salmon dishes), gluen-free options, and amazing rolls. The Hefeweissen draft beer is too fizzy--too much air that dilutes the flavor. Otherwise, friendly service and always glad I've been there.

The upstairs Piazza Room was the perfect location for an after work gathering (~60 in our party). The buffet dinner prepared by the Venetian's kitchen was delicious and the wait staff and owners took care of us perfectly. A fun evening was had by all.

Good food and service. Stopped in for lunch and shared a sandwich. It was more than enough. Casual atmosphere. Good price.

The Venetian itself sits within one of the Hillsboro landmarks... the Theater! They serve drinks with spirit to them... Meals that match... and the rumor that an actual Spirit resides within. The Venetian has been the the 'go-to' dining place for Birthdays, Anniversary and every other family event for years. Staff is excellent! Top that off with the dining entertainment... More

The food is wonderful and tasty, and not over priced. We have always had good service, and enjoy a good Italian Restaurant, and this place is lovely and warm.

The theatre is still playing throw back movies, the Bistro is very warm, staff friendly. The menu is short, but that is because they focus like a laser on quality. Each dish was mouth watering. Shrimp dishes were a hit at our table. Creamy sauces and flavorful sides. Save room for the desserts. Each one was note worthy. Fluffy light... More

I believe the Venetian is under new ownership. We had a wedding reception there upstairs, had our name up in lights. I think it's the nicest place in Hillsboro, but the food and service have been ... OK on occasion. But they were doing much better the past two visits. Food is generally good, but not always seems to be... More

I've eaten at this restaurant a couple of times. The food is decent, but overpriced. The drinks are weak. The staff can be friendly, but some are really not at all. The theater is fun when the Science Pub is going on. I haven't seen a play here yet. I wish they would play movies on their screen. There are... More
