Excellent food and service.

Many years ago we went their location on North Ave in Addision, IL until that location was closed and reopened as a different restaurant. We were sorely disappointed as it was a great place to eat and we thought it had gone out of business. Had one of our kids Christening party there and it was... read more

We were totally disappointed with the service at Venuti VLOUNGE . I had called one week ahead to reserve a table for a Birthday celebration. The man who answered the phone was arrogant and kept re-directing my call to another man who wasn't there, and when I asked what time to call him back, he would reply I don't know... More

This was the location my daughter chose for her wedding reception. The room was beautiful and the reception was lovely BUT getting to the big day was very difficult. If we could do it over I would have chosen a different location simply because of the attitude of the management. Weddings are very costly and for the price tag that... More

Italian food is my favorite cuisine to both cook and eat, which has made me very picky and quite knowledgeable about the food. I actually don't go to many restaurants because most are bland and barely edible. Well I ordered the rigatoni con arrabbiata sauce and much to my surprise it was delicious! This would also be the very first... More

The venue is absolutely beautiful inside and out. The food was the best buffet I've ever had. Each dish had it's own unique flavor and the variety was non-stop. From salads, soups, pizzas, main courses to desserts -- all delicious. AND, the server was beyond attentive. I will definitely go back!

I am Italian and generally avoid Italian restaurants because they rarely meet the standards and quality of my own home kitchen. Venuti's is a major exception. Hands down one of the best and most authentic I've ever experienced. Bravissimi!

Venuti's is one of the only places in Chicagoland that serves pasta like we do. We make homemade pasta daily, and it is evident in the freshness of each dish. We are grateful to have raving fans like yourself and would appreciate you spreading the word:) Thanks for your business. More
