very reasonably priced neighborhood, no frills Italian restaurant. Great pizzas and antipastos. Friendly service. Very casual and relaxed. A good place to go at the last minute.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

My husband and I used to get the $5 pizza on Tuesday nights but they're really cheap with the toppings. I guess, what can you expect for $5 right? It tastes good though. The disappointment comes when we actually went here to sit down and have dinner. I don't even remember what we had as this was months ago, but I was not impressed at all. I guess I should've had that pork chop which the other reviewers raved about! This place is a total dive too and in desperate need of a renovation.

“Extensive menu and specials”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

We made an unplanned visit to The Venetian with our family and the overall impression was very good. I would call this place a "Red Sauce Joint" but I don't use this in a negative way. The menu features many of the classic old world Italian dishes featuring red tomato sauce or “gravy” which was very good. The menu is extensive. However, the menu does have some flare to it and it’s not exclusively red sauce. They are known for the chops with vinegar peppers among other interesting items; they take pride in their pizzas as well. The service was friendly and efficient. On this particular evening, they were offering several specials at very affordable prices including a corned beef and cabbage dinner for $8.95. Yes, it's an Italian restaurant but they do pay homage to the St. Patrick's Day diners in this heavily populated Irish corner of the south shore of Boston.
Actually, the entire menu is quite reasonable. For a great value and decent food, this is a nice spot to gather with family and friends.

“Not so good.”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

I am convinced they don't even buy the good canned spaghetti. Service not the best.
