After hearing great things about this spot, we dined there this past Friday evening with some other couples. It was disappointing and the furthest thing from enjoyable from the start. Our waitress made mistake after mistake. She served three of the four of us our...salads… never brought the salad for the 4th. She then offered shaved mozzarella cheese.. again forgetting to serve one of our crew. She then brought 3 limoncello shots to our table of four… seriously? ! My chicken parm was dry and overcooked. Our bill was so messed up with mistakes that we had a long wait as someone tried getting it figured out!😳 But by far the most disruptive thing to our meal… it was so LOUD that we couldn’t begin to hear any conversation .. we all left with heads throbbing from the loudest restaurant experience in my memory. The table beside us literally had two teens and their parents screaming… could not believe there was no attempt to politely quiet this table down as they disrupted the entire restaurant. I rarely ever post a negative review, am not a particular guest by any stretch… but this night felt like a review was in order.More

Good food, good service, beware we got charged $30 for the still water they got out of the bottle ( I’m assuming they got out of the tap).

Had the 3 course early dining menu… it was superb! I began with mussels in wine sauce, followed by pistachio crusted salmon ending with creme carmel

We chose Little Venice based on reviews and it did not disappoint. We had wonderful authentic Italian dinner complete with Cacio e pepe prepared table side by the owner in an aged Parmigiano-Reggiano wheel. We also enjoyed the Veal Limone over a bed of spinach....Make sure to save room for dessert. The tiramisu melts in your mouth. Our waiter, Roberto was informative and attentive but we did not feel rushed at all. We would absolutely dine here again!More

Little Venice is exceptional and a gem in Hamilton. The server took real pride in the food, especially the Caccio y Pepe flambed next to the table. The steak was served with olives and arugula which was unique and delicious. Every bite was a treat!

We were definitely underdressed when we walked in (I had Jean shorts and a sweat shirt) as it was a higher end atmosphere. However, we were seated right away and they took great care of us. The food was DELICIOUS! We enjoyed everything we ordered...and would definitely return!More

On a recent trip to Bermuda, our group went to The Little Venice for lunch. The restaurant is not big which is a plus. It has some nice décor. But, it is the food that will bring you back. The food was incredible. Fresh pasta....Homemade sauces. Several of us had the Pasta Bolognese special. Excellent choice. If you are in Hamilton, looking for a lunch or dinner spot, try The Little Venice. You will enjoy it.More

One of the best Italian restaurants I’ve ever been to. Food and service are unmatched. Great for a large group, large portions and delicious food. The chicken parm was no perfection served with savory pasta. We got to experience the cheese wheel and baked Alaska!

As I wanted the night to be special, and a surprise, the only place that came to mind was Little Venice. It had been a while since we were here. Prior to arriving on the island, I reached out to have a cake made for...the celebration, and they were excellent. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner, which was a surprise, and though we were early, they seated us without issue. We started with the Scallops for an appetizer, and they were perfect, from being bacon wrapped to the light orange sauce. My Two sons ordered the Caprese Salad and it looked great. The tomatoes were good size, the mozzarella was fresh and the pesto looked great. They both said it was perfect. One of my sons ordered the Gnocchi, and he enjoyed immensely, while my wife and other son had the Chicken Parmigiana. They both enjoyed and my wife loved it, especially since the chicken was nice and thin. I ordered the Veal Saltombacco, and the sauce was perfect, while the Veal was perfectly cooked and thin. The prosciutto was good, but strong hint of herbs. Overall it was worth the wait, and the service was excellent. The cake that came after was awsome, and my wife was "blown away", not only because of the surprise but it was the best cake from any restaurant. Excellent place and I thank all for the great night!More

Hands down, this is Bermuda's best Italian restaurant. The staff are wonderful and the dinner selections are truly prepared respecting Italian cuisine. ( Do not miss the table side-prepared Cacio e Pepe.) We visit Bermuda every year and never miss an opportunity to dine here.

The food was excellent, the homemade ravioli were to die for and the chicken parmigiana was spot on. The waiter was extremely attentive, knowledgeable and even assisted us with hailing a taxi. We will definitely go back here the next time we’re in Hamilton.
