Haven't visited Since the original owners sold the restaurant. It definitely lost its local charm without the owners being there. The pizza is still terrific, but pricey. Great food, always fresh! Waitstaff is slow & not attentive.

Great Pizza. It is hard to find a good pizza in Fl. Fresh ingredients. Friendly service. Wood burning oven. Drizzle the spicy oil on the pizza.

The noise in the back room was overwhelming! When we sat down it was immediately noticeable. Without even asking our friends I asked the waiter for a different table, unfortunately nothing else was available. Folks they don't have an ounce of cloth the the room only wood and a cement block walls. It wasn't pleasant. The table next to us... More

My family and I (including children age 9 and 14) from the UK were on a tour of Florida and spent a night at Venice.

Service very good, particularly as it was... More

If you like authentic Italian you have to try this restaurant. It was the best Italian meal we've had in a long time. Pastas are all homemade and our server was very friendly and helpful. There are many options from appetizers to desserts. Kids loved the pepperoni pizza cooked in a wood burning oven. This is one you won't want... More

I chose Made in Italy because of its advertised wood burning oven, its downtown location and its proximity to Kilwin's where the kids could get ice cream after dinner. I had no... More
