The Venetian has delicious food, good service, and everything is always superb quality. For authentic Italian, this is THE place to go

Cosy old style Italian restaurant. Ivy, our waitress made our experience great. She was attentive and helpful. The pasta was delicious, seafood fresh, and the salmon was excellent. I recommend this restaurant for couples or big groups. Child friendly as well

My husband and our friend went there last Sunday for an early dinner about 4:00 pm. My husband and I had been there very recently, but this was the first time for our friend. The restaurant was almost empty. The waitresses were changing shifts and one couple was finishing up. The first waitress didn't seem sure about the menu. The... More

We booked at reservation at Backstage and they messed up. We had to scramble to find someone who would take our family reunion right that minute. They had room for us and took us right away even though it was pretty full. The food was amazing, the portions were huge, and they refilled our water regularly. There were no errors... More

This is true Italian food served the way it is meant to be served. The food is prepared by a wife who cooks and husband who takes care of customers. Old family recipes still in use by these two. I had a great experience here with my wife and will be coming back. Thank you Michael and your wife. The... More

My friend to the right got chopped carrots and only one zuchinni slice while I got carrot spears and two zuchinni slices. My salad had some brown leaves and I can not beli be if you... More

First and foremost, you are immediately greeted by the owner or one of the most outstanding wait staff who by now know me by name and if you have come here more than once be treated as their most favored guess. Who wouldn't love that. We always return here, always because the service is fine dining quality with the warmth... More

We went to the Venetian for the first time tonight with friends. We had 7:30 reservations and were seated fairly quickly, but it took 10 minutes just to get water, and when the waitress didn't ask if we wanted any drinks after we had been there for more than 15 minutes, we took it upon ourselves to ask if we...

Good old school Italian food and the place was packed! Pretty surly service if you are not one of the regulars, who seem to get the best tables and red carpet treatment.

Great place for a family/friends get-together. We celebrated a HS graduation in a separate party room that seated about 25 people very comfortably. Delicious hot, fresh food. Great service. Felt like eating at Grandma's table. Even the veggies & sides were done well. Excellent red sauce (gravy). Thick, not watery. Dining Room is perfect for a date night or special... More
