We expected to have a meal and be back in the hotel by 10:30 (8:00 reservation). Boy were we surprised. We actually got to linger over excellent food and wine, interact with other diners when we wished and still be happy to toast in the New Year. I especially liked that the menu was great and varied and we were not rushed. Bravo

We've dined at Venice more times than we can remember. The first time was a chance encounter and we've returned every chance we get! It is located in a shopping center with plenty of parking. The dining room is well decorated and the staff is very friendly and hospitable. The friendly owner is usually at the door to greet you as well which is very nice. The menu offers choices for any taste. Initially you are served two types of bread and one type of bread chip along with oil and vinegar. This is a great start to every meal. I usually have some type of pasta with chicken or fish while Nicole is hooked on the homemade ravioli dish! It never fails to be delicious! We have yet to save room for the dessert but it looks fantastic as well! I highly recommend this restaurant for delicious and reasonably priced fine Italian food! For between $10-20 depending on lunch or dinner you will not be disappointed!

After a few days reflection, I am not sure what to make of this restaurant. Is it gourmet Italian dining, or part fast food eatery? Most restaurants of a gourmet caliber allow the diner to enjoy a relaxed paced meal, while this restaurant seemed somewhat focused on clearing the table. This may not necessarily be their fault as the Saturday evening crowd was non-stop for hours, with a line out the door well after 8PM. Popular, extremely crowded but with good reason. The food was very good, well prepared, both visually and pleasing to the palate. Everything was a taste sensation from appetizers to dessert.

Additionally, this restaurant may be a victim of its own popularity. Located at the end of a strip mall it is in desperate need of expansion. It is crowded inside, the tables so closely packed together that I often had to turn sideways to avoid bumping a chair or another customer. And with this crowded restaurant comes the incredible noise. It was nearly impossible to carry on a conversation with the person sitting next to you.

The service, in my opinion, was both excellent and annoying. I haven’t seen so many forks, knives and spoons, plates and glasses, sitting on a table in quite awhile. Each person of our large group had at least two complete sets and any meal that required a different utensil was accompanied by several more pieces of specific silverware. But this created an unusual situation as the busboys/girls hovered about constantly, removing plates, and silverware the split second they appeared empty or not in use. One person at our table, slowly enjoying his meal, was asked several times whether he was finished. They seemed so intent on getting his plate. However, the main waiter made sure the wine and water glasses were never empty and that everyone was enjoying their meal. And everyone did, too.

Would I dine here again? The answer is yes, but I would probably go on a less busy night, most likely a weekday. One last suggestion; Read the menu on-line before you arrive unless you are very familiar with Italian or Italian cuisine. Each dish is listed by its Italian name. There are so many dining choices that it can take some time to read each meal description.

Business associate recommended this place, he lives nearby and Venice is his favorite Italian.

We had the manager prepare a table-side Caesar Salad from scratch, that rocked! Great flavor, great ingredients, what a wonderful salad.

We had a bottle of wine recommended by the waiter that was a Sangiovese, and it was incredible!

We also had the calamari appetizer, and it was excellent too!

The entire experience was terrific, and I will be back!
