As usual, great food and friendly

As usual, great food and friendly service.
We are always greated as royalty as everyone we see going thru the entrance. The staff is always very friendly and attentive. The food is always consistent, authentic and delicious. We love the seafood dishes and the veal. The pasta is very good, but we prefer protein versus carb and Venice has a lot to choose from. WE REALLY LOVE VENICE. I cannot understand why they received three bad reviews (on the same day???). That' s very strange ( maybe those reviews are from the next door restaurant).

How is this place in business!?!

I cant even imagine where all these good comments are coming from! Our entire evening was ruined by this cracker jack venue. I made a reservation for Saturday evening at least two weeks in advance. I had family coming in to town and I wanted to show them a good time we arrived about 15 minutes in advance so we could have a drink at the bar before eating. The greeting was probably the only positive I can find in this hell hole. After waiting for service at the bar for 15 minutes the short little bar tender ran up and acted like it was a total inconvenience that I was ordering a drink. He was very curt and actually rolled his eyes at me! We decided we would go ahead and sit at our table because we wouldnt want the nasty little bar tender to have to make another drink. God forbid. This time at the hostess stand a short little mexican man whom I assume was the manager said it would take about 20-25 mintues to sit. 1 hour later we are starving and still waiting in the bar. The front was packed and everyone was upset because they all had reservations at 7:00 and were being quoted a wait time of 20-25 minutes! I have worked in many restaurants during college and I dont understand why someone would book so many people in one hour other than greed. We finally decided to leave and go to a real resaurant. This place has to be one of the most poorly managed businesses I have ever been to. I will never return there and im sure at the rate they are going they wont be there much longer.

Who runs this joint?

I dined here with a group of friends this last weekend. I have never been so disappointed in a restaurant that charges that much. I would rather dine at McDonald's for the rest of my days than give my money to these people ever again.
Don't be fooled by the friendly smile at the entrance, because you will have to wait over an hour for your reservation, which is fine with them because you can just go spend an extra $50 at the bar while you're waiting.
Food was without taste, most of my party's meat was cooked at the wrong temperature and it took over 20 minutes to get our deserts. It would be nice if when asking the helping staff for something they actually spoke English. The place is so crowded they pack everyone in like sardines.
When I asked to speak to the manager no one ever came to our table and on our way out I saw what looked like the manager at the bar enjoying his wine and talking to a woman.
I would not reccomend this place to my worst enemy.

The restaurant was wonderfully

The restaurant was wonderfully decorated with hearth shaped balloons and petals of roses all over. A rose for every women WAS A NICE TOUCH
The food was very tasty and beautifully presented.
The lobster dish was great but too pricey ($32)
The restaurant was kind of noisy around 7 pm.
Service was impeccable.
Overall it was a great experience.
I will go back.

First time

The high-style restaurant has excellent food, perfectly prepared. The wine list is a veritable phone book of options with under the average prices.The waitstaff was extremely helpful. The maitre d' was a gentleman with myself and everybody on my table.
Venice will be my new spot.

Best Italian Food in Denver and Great Service

My husband and I went to Venice this weekend. Our server was outstanding and the food was wonderful. I really enjoy when an Italian Restaurant makes all of their pasta fresh unlike some who just use frozen pasta. They have an incredible wine selection and our server was most helpful in helping us select the perfect bottle. Venice is great.

great food, terrible service

We took our 21 year old daughter and her friend there for her birthday celebration. Two and one half hours later, we were still there, waiting for the check. The service was so slow, we were wondering at times where the food was coming from. The service was unfriendly and the place wasn't really that crowded for a Wednesday night. She wasn't very helpful, barely smiled and didn't try at all to make my daughter's 21st birthday very special. The server was impatient waiting for our order, but then each course took forever to deliver. We have been to Venice many times, but this time was horrible. Go next door to Morton's if you want a memorable evening.

WE HAD A FABULOUS DINING EXPERIENCE

First off all, I just want to express how hard it was to find a simple, high end pasta meal here in Denver. I think we did it. It was my girlfriends birthday last Friday, and her one request was a simple spaghetti dinner with a good Italian sausage, and a nice bottle of red. After endless review, reviewing, I picked Venice. Part of the decision was based on location, a quick cab ride from the Cap Hill area. Because of last minute plans, we drove instead. We were quite happy to pay a few bucks for valet, as it was a busy and chilly night in Lo-Do. I had requested a romantic table knowing that this actually works once in a great while. We got it. She sat facing the quaintly Christmas lit street, while I had a great view of the massive wine cellar and softly lit wine bar. We were immediately served a warm basket of bread and oil, all made in house, and delicious. After viewing the quite extensive wine list, we received a nice free sample of Merlot but decided on the Raven Wood Zinfandel instead. The menu was also quite extensive, but offered a variety of choices. My girl decided not on the Spaghetti and sausage, but the Risotto con Spinaci e Salsiccia. I love a great olive oil, garlic pasta but could not find just what I was craving on the menu. I am not shy to ask for a special, so I did, and wow they nailed it. Prawns, garlic sauce and two large pieces of fabulous home made sausage. We hoped to spend around an hour during our stay, and thought we had hit it just right. After checking the time, we could not believe we had spent and hour and fifty minutes. How time flies when you are having fun. Thank you Dominique, you could not have been more helpful, and thank you Venice for making our evening a successful one. We will be back, and we have told all of our friends to take a peek.
