Got a large meatball sub her for 12$ . Huge sub roll not a lot of meatballs and barely any sauce. So it was very dry . Should have more meatballs and why are the meatballs so dry, and more sauce.Someone should be supervising for...quality.More

We used to order 1ce a week their subs, but lately, I don't know what the heck is going on but their subs have no meat in them. Gave them the benefit of the doubt and ordered 2 more times and it was awful. This...last time the bread was hard and had no meat. Pizza tastes like cardboard... dry like the bread. Where has the freshness gone??? Not just that prices are outrageous for the amount of food you get. $42.00 for 3 subs. Sorry... but 4 Seasons is doing a better job at making those subs, I am forced to switch it up.More

Let me start of with the service. The counter person gets on her phone in the middle of my order then asks me to repeat it. On to the food. I ordered a small sausage pizza and a dozen crispy hot wings. The pizza was...flavorless and the only redeeming thing about it was that the sausage was applied generously. The wings were undercooked with chewy skin and completely disgusting. Mind you I had ordered the wings crispy and what I received was barely passable for being cooked. I ordered them hot but the sauce was anything more like a mild. I will never go here again. What a waste of money for barely edible food.More

No matter what kind of sub you order you won't be disappointed. Venice loads them with delicious meats, eggplant, greens or whatever you like. Definitely The number one value for its price and taste. If it's pizza or chicken wings, or both, they offer special...deals too. Eat in or take out! Offering delicious Italian fare!!More

I’ve ordered a roast beef sub for take out. Their sub is huge but kind a disappointing since it was a little dry. It cost almost $12.00 for a large sub. But I wouldn’t mind paying that much if the sub is awesome. It’s mediocre....Will definitely say that I had better subs than this. Not only that, they charge a whopping 4% for using a credit card. I asked the cashier, and his reply was “We don’t charge you the fee. It’s the credit card machine that charges you”. Really? I will not support a business that does this. There’s plenty of restaurant I can go that doesn’t charge me for not carrying cash in my wallet.More

Finally found a go-to place for chicken riggies! They are generous with the contents. It's not just mostly pasta like some places, and the flavor and sauce consistency is very good. I thought it looked like it had little meatballs all over it, until I...realized they were nice little whole button mushrooms. The full order is enough for 2 people. I weighed it when I got home before I dug in. It was over 3 lbs! I got a "mini" sub too, and when they handed it to me, I thought it was a mistake, because there was nothing "mini" about it (see picture) and it weighed about a pound and a half. I sampled it - pretty good, too! I had a slice while waiting for the to go items. Very nice crust texture and thinness, but a little salty. But I tend to be a little more salt sensitive than the average Joe. I would like to be able to taste a little more tomato sauce flavor with it. Very nice people at the counter, clean place, and you can dine in or run in for take out without coming out smelling like a dirty old pizza oven like some places. Looks like a very nice, big, separate but attached bar on the other side, which is new. I would definitely visit this place again. Great value for the money.More

Was in Utica visiting a college student’s friend and Venice was recommended as a good place to get a bite to eat! And yes it was! One of the owners/managers “Mike” was on premises and made a point of greeting us and making sure that...we were given a table. There are two separate areas one is self serve, the other in the bar area has table service. We sat in the bar area, there are 20 beers on tap! It was crowded and loud! The food was very good a reasonable! Had Utica Greens, chicken Riggies, lasagna and Broccoli and Hats! Including salads and garlic bread! There was a lot of food, it was delicious and there were a lot of leftovers. Our waitress, “Joanie”, was as attentive as she could be considering how crowded it was! The whole experience was fun, would definitely go back again! Thanks Mike for all of your help and attention!More

I got the steak sub with sautéed onions, two different types of peppers, mushrooms, and cheese. All I can say is wow! Almost too big to eat but I managed. I have gotten a lot of steak sandwiches over the years but this was the...best ever. Better than the steak sandwiches Philadelphia, PA. I'll be back.More

My fiancé and I ordered a take out for 1 small pepperoni pizza and 20 wings and it cost about $35. We normally wouldn’t pay this much for a small amount of food. But since it was Labor Day and lots of pizza places are...closed on a holiday, we decided to give this place a try. Would come back, but not for a while because of the overpriced food.More
