This is by far the best restaurant in Misquamicut! It is fine dining but you don't have to get dressed up. The Chef is original and excellent! Highest recommendation possible!

We have eaten here a few times during our stays and it was quite good. For our stay in 2014 we were a bit disappointed in the bar menu & service, but will try it again during our stay in 2015

Various types of dining are offered at this three level restaurant. We headed to the third floor for some pub style food, a drink and the view. The view was lovely and the food was very good.

My wife and I love this restaurant. Invariably, we are greeted graciously by Nunzio and all the regulars, even if we haven't been there in months. Drinks are generous and luscious. Buck-A-Shucks are fresh and fabulous. Prime Rib is always a favorite on Friday. And Pasta Wednesday is a feast for all senses. Grazie, Venice!

Excellent service,decent food albeit a pretty basic menu. We had the fried calamari app which was very nicely done; fresh fish with a very light batter and a nice marinara dipping sauce. My pork chop was large and very nicely cooked as were the accompanying sides. The other entrees were also well prepared.

The Venice Restaurant is related to the Winnapaug Inn where I stay. I have had many great meals there but the best is their Wednesday Night Pasta Bar Buffet, where you and the cook together cook your meal and you can go back again. I eat nowhere else on Wednesday Nights.

My wife and I have visited Venice many times to enjoy fine Italian cuisine and warm hospitality. Friday nights are among my favorite times, because their Prime Rib is always delicious as well as an excellent value. Preceded by local oysters, shucked by Nunzio, this meal is always a winner.

A vast amount of Italian and American dishes are available and delicious. The service is excellent. The downstairs dining room and lounge atmosphere is special and the upstairs pub-like restaurant is more laid back and fun.

I find the food and the service to be really average. It's too bad because the physical location is really good.
