Pizza was absolutely fantastic. Rosemary bread could not have been more perfect. The spectacular food is what boosted my overall rating to "average." Service was poor. Requested drink menus and server brought one menu - for our group of 7. Alcoholic beverages were promptly served, while the remaining non-alcoholic drinks were served after we flagged the server after waiting 10 minutes (ice was melted - guess it was sitting at the kitchen). Food took about 25 minutes to arrive. One plate of rosemary bread (two rolls) was served (for 7?!). We twice requested additional bread (seeing that the food took it's sweet time to arrive). Server finally brought out one additional plate just minutes before the pizza was ready.

Great Pizza an Italian food. Casual dining. You can eat upstairs on a balcony overlooking the famous Oxford square. Sometimes it can become noisy. During football season hard to get in for a meal.

The rosemary bread brought to every table was delicious. I had the three cheese manicotti with red sauce. It was unlike any manicotti I have ever had - it contained cream cheese mixed in with the ricotta. It was definitely creamy and contained an entire days worth of calories! Service was very good. The menu also contained other Italian fare (ie lasagna) and build your own pizzas with a large variety of base sauces: pesto, cream cheese sauce, red sauce, etc.

The pizza at Old Venice Pizza Company is just ok, nothing special. There are other good resturants on the square that I would check out before coming to Old Venice. It's in a great location though!

My wife's pasta dinner was very good. My salmon was under-cooked, and the waitress and manager were quick to offer remedies, which I declined. I was disappointed that I could not have a glass of wine with dinner (it was Sunday).
