We were visiting family and all came to Venuti's to enjoy the food, but also to listen to Soda, the band playing that evening. Because of that, we ate in the lounge. The tables were rather small for the 8 of us, but we were able to manage quite well - even with appetizers, the bread & oil served at... More

We ate dinner here - fantastic food!! This is an Italian restaurant that serves great sea bass and also ravioli. After dinner we went into the bar area to dance to the band called Soda. They are a great band and easy to dance to.

We attended a wedding reception with about 200 people. The wedding food and the restaurant food are very different. We were waiting in the bar for our banquet room to open and the food going past us to the restaurant side smelled and looked amazing. The antipasto platter, calamari and clam pasta were the nicest we've EVER seen. The wedding... More

Venuti's does not cut corners when it comes to having a wedding there. They roll out the red carpet and white gloved service. When you are thinking of a refill of anything-it has already been provided. The venue and food were amazing. I do not have one bad thing to say about this Italian restaurant- because there is none. If... More

From appetizer to dessert, this is the place to have a wedding, shower, or family get together. Every thing tasted fresh, and the portions are generous. We had medium rare filets and they were cooked and seasoned perfectly. Mangia!

Have been to this restaurant twice. Disappointed both times. The second time was worse, as I ordered the eggplant parmesan and it was a plate of slop. Terrible. Salad was tomatoes and lettuce and the tomatoes were the palest pick tomatoes I had ever seen. And, when I was there the time before? The olive oils was rancid. Bitter and... More
