Been to a million Italian restaurants all over the globe. Hate it when they make one red sauce and toss it on all dishes saying its " different " . That absolutely DOES NOT happen at Venice. Their sauces are fabulous and dish appropriate. In particular, I have to give them the crown for the best mussels marinara in the... More

The restaurant is in an unassuming location in a shopping plaza off the main road. It's mostly appreciated by the locals who know its better than one would expect. Their pizzas are excellent, their veal parmagiana is also very good, their marinara sauce is excellent. A pleasant surprise is their dinner specials, dinner for two with a bottle of wine... More

Very casual Italian. Good weekday value menu. Noisy & crowded with outdoor seating on major road. Service is ok. Good for a quick dinner. We stick to classic dishes.

We have been coming to Venice since we moved to Ridgefield in 1996. We go for dinner at least once a month, get takeout regularly and have had them cater parties for us. The food is always good, the prices are midrange and the service is warm and accommodating. This is no frills Italian that always hits the spot. We... More

Decided not to cook and have a nice dinner with family. Two dinners are plenty for four people. I love their chicken marsala and tried their eggplant parmesan. All enjoyed dinner and there was plenty of food. Dinners come with salad and pasta. If dinners aren't what you're looking for, their pizza is good too.

Venice is without a doubt our favorite restaurant in Ridgefield. Don't be fooled into thinking it just a Pizzeria, but it is also a small Italian restaurant that has about 20 tables. Joey (one of the owners) owns the restaurant with other family members and is one of the reasons we keep going to Venice. He takes the time to... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch - very tasty Italian food. Had the chicken Parmesan and my friend had a Caesar salad with grilled chicken. Friendly staff.

My husband and I just moved to Ridgefield and this was the first restaurant we dined in, and it was a fabulous choice. We've been living here for about 3 weeks now and we've already gone back and brought friends. It is somewhere we will definitely be returning. The atmosphere is family friendly while also being elegant enough for a... More

Food overall was average. Lobster ravioli special was tasteless. Pizza was decent, Penne ala Vodka was the usual- nothing great. Service was bad- missing items, delays or having to ask two or three times for dishes and drinks. Never came back to ask if anyone wanted more drinks after an hour had passed. We had to flag them down each... More

Great pizza, great dishes; prompt service dine-in and take out. Calamari could be a little crsipier and I wish they would have aioli with it in addition to marinara, but their marinara is SO good I almost don't care.
