We enjoyed a family meal sitting outside . It wasn't busy which was great . The music was soothing as we relaxed and ate our dinner slowly we didn't feel rushed at all . The portions were very large so go with a big appetite . The allegro pizza was awesome ! One family member had the spaghetti and meat... More

New to the area and decided to give it a try. Being of Italian heritage I am particular about Italian food and I have to say this food was not even close to good. Ordered the eggplant parm, sugar int he sauce was overpowering and dish did not live up to true eggplant parm.

Allegro's has good food and good service except when there is music. We have been there for dinner and were disappointed with the service (However, for drinks and listening it ranks high). When we went for lunch the service was excellent and the food very good.

I have dined at Valenti's dozens of times and really enjoy a business or social lunch there. The food and service are excellent. Kudos to the owners for offering Venice an authentic Italian cuisine restaurant that is open for Lunch and Dinner, even in the off season! This restaurant deserves the support of all who live within reach of Valenti's!

My husband and I visited for happy hour. The bar area was very busy with all the chairs /stools reserved, so we sat on a couch. There was a private party close by, so it was extremely noisy. We eventually ordered pizza and sat in a booth at the far end of the restaurant. Our server was friendly and prompt.... More

Ordered margarita pizza and Hawaiian pizza. Crust was good. Margarita pizza was very plain tasting, few crushed tomatoes, thin dots of cheese, no fresh basil or herbs. Very bland and scant for $18. Hawaiian pizza had more flavor but folks who ate it suffered from heartburn n upset stomach. Will not go back.

The pizza was fabulous; thin and crispy crust and not over sauced. The fried calamari is worth a visit alone. We sat in the lounge and it was "jazz night". The group was good, but I did not think it was appropriate for a patron to go to each table with the tip jar, it took away from the vocalist.... More
