Four of us had dinner here mid week. We requested sidewalk seating and were seated within five minutes at a comfortable table away from the press of passing pedestrians. We had a pizza and a couple of the linguini dishes which we found to be well portioned and satisfactory if not particularly memorable. Would probably stick with the pizza on... More

Smelled the food as we walked by so had to see. Found it to be very Italian atmosphere...we decided on a white pizza and it may have been the best pizza I have ever had. My wife was there for the wine....great selection....Vivian the bartender was so warm to talk with....and her smile made you feel very welcome. So everything... More

Jasmine was a fantastic waitress. It was crazy busy but she took care of us. The waiters all worked together and it made for a very pleasant experience not to mention it was the best salad and pizza we've ever had at a great price in this very expensive area.

We stopped at Venezia for lunch on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Situated right on St. Armands Circle, the people watching is fantastic. We sat outside and felt transported to Venice...without the canals. Waiter was very friendly. I had Chianti Classico and a Caprese panini. My husband had the Venezia sandwich which was ham, salami, prosciutto and cheese. Bread was fabulous... More

Pizza is a specialty and I watched many folks pick up pizzas to take home. My friend and I chose appetizers and wine at the bar. The staff is... More

Great location on the circle, this is a great Italian restaurant with smaller light items, a nice selection of appetizers that you might put together for a meal, pricey glasses of wine, delectable thin crust pizzas, and fresh salads. It is a hopping place every time we have gone there and there is both indoor and outdoor sidewalk seating. We... More

Really hungry for high quality pizza but no one wanted to dine out, so ordered two delicious pizzas and ate them on the beach! Really fabulous and took 10 minutes. Staff were proficient and friendly.
