Great Italian food made to order. Do not expect to have quick service. This is a place to go and savor the food. We have recommended this to many people and no one has been disappointed

“Best Italian Food North of Boston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

We are locals and have been dining at Venezia since they first opened tweny years ago. The chicken parm and chicken eggplant parm are the best we've ever had including places we've eaten in Italy. When you go to Venezia - you go to dine. If you are in a rush - don't go. It is a family owned business with Toni and/or her daughter Toni waiting tables. Joe is an outstanding chef who works alone in the kitchen. You will not be dissappointed! Thanks Toni, Toni and Joe...you are the best!! Buon Appetito to all!

“the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

Their veal parm is the best I've ever had. We've been going to this restaurant for 15 years. You'll need reservations and the trick to getting good service is to get your reservation before 6:00. After 6:00, things become very busy and the staff is overwhelmed. Their pasta fagiole soup is phenomenal. I've had almost everything on the menu and I can't remember ever being disappointed. Toni and her daughter work hard, but their secret weapon is the cook.

“Cozy, casual and great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

We had dinner at the Venezia Restorante and the experience was excellent. The service was warm and friendly, cozy atmosphere and the meal was delicious. I think that veal is always the test of a good Italian restaurant and I was not disappointed.
