I have eaten here in the past but came back for the half priced Sangria. The bar had a lot of activity with the football game on. Despite the amount of people, the bartender got our drink order quickly and accurate. It was a nice place to enjoy some drinks prior to walking Somerville to find a special place to... More

We will not go back. We went on 12/30/15 and they were really short-handed. We would not judge based on this, as it may be a one-time anomaly. However, we did not even get bread without asking, had to ask for water and the food was only fair. It is how staff react to a bad situation and the overall... More

My wife and I thought we would stop at the Venetian after coming from Northern New Jersey. We had eaten there once before and thought it would be a good change. When we got there the place was empty except for some guys at the bar way in the back. The guys called the bartender , who waited on us.... More

Server was very pleasant but didn't return to table frequent enough. Food portion was very good but food very average. Prices reasonable. Noise level from shared bar next door was to loud.Asthetics was very good.Table setting white table cloth.

We went on a Saturday night and the restaurant was VERY quiet. We were warned ahead of time that the service was slow but that the food was good so we went prepared. Just a quick FYI: this is NOT a BYOB. They have a full bar. We had the calamari for the appetizer (very good) and the two chicken... More

Appetizers were very good, including the bruschetta and mushrooms with sausage plates. Wine selection also better than average. Dinners were under seasoned in my opinion - a bit too bland. We had a pasta plate, salmon special, and stuffed shrimp. I think our mistake was ordering seafood in the middle of New Jersey. The waiter was pleasant; the surroundings attractive,... More
