Five of us met for a business lunch. I will review only my lunch and experience. The restaurant was not busy, only four tables were occupied. We were seated without waiting; however, it took some time to receive the bread, a highlight of the meal. I ordered chicken Milano, without knowing what to expect. The portion was huge but consisted... More

Great atmosphere, great service, and great food....the wait staff really works hard to make your dining experience special. The only downside was the rude person running the cash register; he was not a member of the wait staff. He may have been the owner or the owner's son, but his arrogant manner and rude treatment of the wait staff certainly... More

Choose to sit indoors or outdoors if the weather is nice, occasionally there is live music playing. The table cloths and napkins are white linen. The dessert selection is superb and very decadent. The food is a cut above with ample portion size. Reservations not required but definitely advised.

Good food, great atmosphere for formal or business casual dining, and a great array of desserts too celebrate a business luncheon or personal dinner. The rum cake is a must to be shared by two or more or even taken home.

We've enjoyed Venezia's a few times. Always our choice for those special occasions. Reasonable price for the quality of food. I've enjoy the veal dishes. YUM. Lasagna passes my sweetie's test, and he's tough on lasagna. The escargot is only topped by the baked avacado shrimp appetizer. I usually will order both. Great atmosphere, service and food is tops. We've... More

We love to go here on date nights. The porch is a great place to eat in the evenings and the service has always been great.

This is a nice restaurant with very good Italian food. I rated Venezia as excellent because it is one of the few restaurants in Midland that is a more upscale restaurant. While you still see people wearing jeans (and sometimes shorts) most of the time people are wearing business casual or nicer clothes. The service is great and you will... More

"Upscale" Italian in Midland. Summertime patio nights are the best here. The food has never disappointed. Dress nicely...

Venezia Restaurant is an Italian Cuisine legend in Midland, Texas. We have enjoyed the food and service for many years. It is an elegant restaurant for Midland and the service is very very good! Try to leave room for one of their specialty deserts!
