“Disappointed”

Venezia's Italian Kitchen
Ranked #4 of 110 Restaurants in Russellville
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Went to this restaurant based on reviews.
Boy was I disappointed. The marinara sauce had little or no flavor. It might as will have come out of a jar.
The lasagna was very boring and generic. Nothing to make it stand out from any other fast food Italian restaurant. Cannot understand how this restaurant got so many favorable reviews

The pasta was excellent, served very hot and all homemade. The service was welcoming and very punctual with all our orders. It was a most delightful meal and very reasonable prices. We loved it and recommend it!

Loved the rolls and my husband loved his spaghetti with sausage. Salads weren't crisp and the Ranch dressing was definitely not homemade. Did not love the chicken piccata - pretty bland.

Can't say enough great things about this restaurant. This was our first (but not our last) visit and staff was very helpful in explaining the menu and it's many different options.

Owner/Manager came out personally to each of the tables checking on guests and was even was playful with the families in the restaurant.

If you leave Venezia's Italian Cuisine hungry it is at no fault of the restaurant you get plenty of food for the money.

We had a good enjoyable meal in a family friendly atmosphere.

Took my mother in law and even she loved it.

Surprisingly authentic Italian food in rural Arkansas. Excellent food and choices. Best New York style pizza in the state. Venezia's can't help but be good. The owner is Albanian (adjacent to Italy) with very similar cuisine. Owner developed taste for Italian food while living in Italy. Recently aquired county beverage permit.
