“Much better than the average italian”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

It is a relatively cheap but tasty italian restuarant with those typical large but good quality and tasty portions. It has the right mix of value and extra touches. But also quite friendly and prompt focussed service. I had pizza and past on different occasions and they both good and I left more than satisfied.

“Overpriced blandness”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

I ventured here seeking a good salad and nice fish. The lunch menu of grilled fish with salad and chips for $19-sih was my choice. That disturbing sign of arriving far too quickly was confirmed again. The fish - whose type wasn't listed or volunteered - was bland and coated in something prior to grilling. I think it was something based on egg, but how would you know. The fish was overlain on the chips - a classic method for turning good chips soggy asap. Worst of all was the salad - a tiny afterthought of a bit of iceberg lettuce, single slice of tomato and some slivers of carrot with some dressing. All up very disappointing.

“Decent food at a decent price!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We ate here a few weeks ago and found the service pretty quick and attentive. Some people may find the restaurant a little bit noisy, but it was because the restaurant was quite busy with bookings and people having a good time. If you have ever eaten in popular authentic restaurants in Italy, then this is 'the norm'. Pricing and atmosphere is good, but I haven't given it 5 stars because we had an advance booking and were seated right next to the walk through and the food while pretty good, is not 5 star, but worth what you pay for, just. Overall a good restaurant for couples, families and friends in Albany and conveniently located.

“Best restaurant in town!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

Have recently been to different restaurants in town, many a time disappointed. The food is always spot on at the Venice!! The service is great, meals are big and good value for what you get! Anyone that speaks bad of this place obviously is just knit picking! It's the only place I go to for a good meal now! :)
