“Great Italian Food in Hillsboro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Our party of six enjoyed a fabulous meal one Friday evening in July. The food, service and atmosphere were all great. There were 3 dinner specials that evening and all were great. (Gluten-free and low carb options available.)

“Glad we tried it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

We had heard a lot about this restaurant but had never been there until we received a gift card. The decor was great and they managed to keep the old theater feeling when it was remodeled. The service was great and the food was very good. There was a nice selection of choices for dinner and the dessert selections were EXCELLENT. We did go for an early dinner on a Saturday as we knew there would be a wait if we arrived after about 6pm so it was not too busy. We will definitely go there again - so glad we had the gift card which made us try it!

“Nice atmosphere, food disappointing.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

That's about it. I've eaten there four times. Food has been less than impressive so I think I've given them more than enough chances.

“Great Option in downtown Hillsboro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We have been enjoying meals at the Venetian for a couple of years now, always coming away feeling satisfied with the service, food and drink menu. Recently, we started a gluten free regiment and at most restaurants you really have to be careful. We have always loved the pizza's at the Venetian and noticed that they had gluten free pizza dough available. We gave it a shot and couldn't have been more pleased. The dough was a thin crispy crust that would have fooled most people. Very good. Overall, very consistent quality, a standard menu and I can forget, the Venetian margarita...one is not enough but two may be too much.

“Happy Birthday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Had my birthday lunch here with a friend. Lunch menu has enough variety to be interesting but not too much to be overwhelming. Had the roast pork and apple salad, was great. Have also had their burgers and pizza in the past and those are tasty as well. They have a nice selection of local brews and spirits as well. Also, note that on your birthday they offer a free meal (some limits apply of course). Who does that in this day and age?! The theater also has a variety of classic movies and plays. Nice place overall!
