“Fairly New Italian restaurant in town.”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I just love Venice island and we just discovered a new or at least new to us Italian restaurant. We were looking for a place to have dinner before the show at the Venice theatre. We stopped on Venice Ave and this place was mobbed. We thought well, this has got to be good. The owner came over and told us it would be about 5 minutes. He came and got us and brought us to the back of the restaurant and there is a nice big room. It was a little noisy but the atmsphere was great. We told the owner that we were kind of in a rush and he told us not to worry and he was right. We ordered a delicious bottle on Montepulciano wine. It was lovely. We had 3 appetizers and they were all wonderful and an entree of tender ravioli. We were all in heaven. He told us he has the best creme brulee and dang, he was right! We will definitely go back here again. We heard that he has a great "Sunday dinner". We are going to try that too. He went out of his way to make us feel right at home and it worked. We loved the place.

“Best pizza in Venice”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Made in Italy has the most delicious pizza, also love their Caesar salad. We almost missed out on this great food because the first time we went it was so noisy we almost walked out. Glad we stayed, and we will continue to go despite the noise. It would be really great if they would put up something on the walls or ceiling to absorb the noise. Ask to sit outside or try their new patio in the rear to avoid the noise. Have not tried this but I am hoping that it is quieter back there.

“Great experience”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Went on Tuesday around 2:00 with husand and inlaws. Fabulous pizza (sausage pie, sausage and mushroom pie and the special pie w gorgonzola. Great iced tea. Our waiter Justino was extremely attentive. Loved the way they served the 3 pies on a long plank. Each pie cut into 4 pieces. Defintiely the best pie we have had in FL (we're from New Haven CT area). The pricing was a bit high but considering the area....it was worth it. 4 drinks, 1 app and 3 pies was $79. The room can get noisy. Would go back.

“Overpriced Pizza Parlor”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

10 diners agreed: Awful food - no taste no flavor. Tough calimare, no spices on food, no dressing on salads. Only pizza was good. Asked for reservations to have dessert before theater. Then no time for dessert. 2nd time there, yuck. Why are people impressed. Italian food in the South is a moving target, and this place was one of the worst!
