went to venice restaurant in greenwood village. had been to the one in lodo and was not overly impressed. the country cousin, located in an older neighborhood shopping plaza, was a whole other story. the hostess, a bit frazzled, offered complimentary champagne while the table was being readied. the wait staff was efficient without hovering and the food was perfecto. my chicken in a lemon sauce with artichokes and capers was the best. my significant other loved her lasagna, and we agreed that the antipasto, caesar salad and chocolate mousse were all fabulous.
the only downside is that this is a very large room and tends to be somewhat noisy. figure and entree is going to run between 20-35 dollars
