So happy for having discovered this neat restaurant with excellent choice of food. Parking was easy in front alongside the street. Even the food was healthy for a diet with certain restrictions!

Always on the lookout for good, low-sodium food. At Café Venice I enjoyed a delicious Quiche of the Day with Small Salad and Herb Vinaigrette. That was such a delicious choice! My husband enjoyed it with a cup of Tomato Basil Soup.

We have been dining at Cafe Venice for years and love it. They have the most amazing Caprese salad topped with pecan pesto! The salmon is excellent as well. Also, the staff is friendly and helpful!

So, this was our first visit to Venice Beach...we learned we could walk about 4-blocks to "town," where there were several food & drink establishments. We'd completed our walk up one side of the street, found many local Italian food restaurants...this one looked nice, wasn't...More
