We love having take out from Venezia. The food is always delicious. My son's meat calzone and daughter's ziti is fantastic tonight, however I'm eating leftover instant soup. I got home with our food, only to find out my order was not included. It is a 30 minute round trip to get to Venezia, so it wasn't worth my time... More

I've visited Venezia Italian Restaurant many many times - both to dine and and take out. The Sunday Brunch is very very good salad and various pizza. The pepperoni Strombelli is very good. If you like fried Mushrooms -- these are out of the world good. Its really an appetizer but several times I ordered it as the main dish.... More

We were in Advance, NC visiting family. We decided to go to Venezia for supper. There were 8 of us: 4 adults and 4 children. We ordered pizzas, chicken wings, cheese steak sub and lasagna. Plus we ordered dessert. The service was great and food was good. We'll be back the next time we're in town.

This small town Italian restaurant has big potential. The food is absolutely amazing and the vegetarian options rival the flavor of the rest of the menu. Be prepared for big, delicious portions when you go here.

Really disappointed in flavor. The cheese was seemingly commercial and not that authentic Motz snap from a real Italy pizza joint. Wings ordered mild, were too hot. Par with the 2 delivery places nearby. That's why we tried this. What's in a name? Don't roll the dice, stick with dominos

If you want a great selection of Italian food prepared and served by the family that owns the restaurant,(Egyptian not Italian) then this is the place. It is a local hot spot on the weekends. The pizzas are traditional and good. The gyro and ziti were good (not the best we've had but would buy again). Wonder why they don't... More

The food is tasty, nothing great, but I have never had anything bad there either. The pizza and strombolis are good and the pasta is average. The prices are really good for the quality and quantity of food.

This review is for the pizza only, as that's all we've had there for the past 10 years. Any time friends visit from out of town, take out pizza is a "must-do" on the list so they can let others enjoy their favorite pizza. Take out staff is pleasant, and pizza chefs always greet my kids from the kitchen. The... More

Best "authentic" Italian food in Advance or Winston-Salem. Very reasonably priced and family friendly. The pizza is awesome. This restaurants compares well with restaurants in the east coast!

The positive points of our visit included a pleasant waiter and a decent salad. We were disappointed in the long wait for our pasta and gyro. The waiter recognized the excessive wait time and gave us a 10% discount. The captains wafers were stale and the ketchup dispenser was clogged with dried residue. The Alfredo was bland.
