Delicious food, very generous portions. Excellent value for money. Very attentive staff but not intrusive.We will definitely return and would highly recommend this lovely restaurant.
First visit of the year to the Venezia last night. A bit busier than when we usually go, but fast service - and even corrected one minor mistake instantly and with a little extra! Great as usual.
Lovely atmosphere , great food , scallops starter is amazing , Lasagne was good although too big for me to finish friendly staff , great service . Five star ⭐️
A welcome return for us to the excellent Venezia Restaurant. This was the first time we had taken guests with us and, unsurprisingly, they were as happy with everything as we were. We'll all be back soon...
It was the first time that we had been to Venezia a friend off mine had recommended it as she has been a few time and has said how nice it was,so we thought it would be nice to take my husband there for his birthday,we took our daughter with us,my husband and I enjoyed our food but when it came to my daughters it wasn't that nice it was risotto and it was very greasy,we let the head waiter know about this and he told the chef ,so when we came to pay they didn't charge us for it which I thought was very nice off them. So over all it was a very nice evening would go back again.i would only go back if it was a special event as it is a little expensive if it was a day today thing
The restaurant is out of the way, so you need to make sure you know where it is. The choice of meals was excellent and our two 3 course dinners were superb. I had buffalo and tomato to start followed by fillet steak in a Diane sauce with profiteroles for dessert. This washed down with a couple of glasses of house red. My wife had a mushroom dish to start, followed by Sea Bass and then a trio of ice cream. Everything was excellent. I would whole-heartedly recommend this restaurant. The service was also excellent.
Excellent experience once again; just one thing - no one checked when we arrived to see if we had a reservation. We had put in a special request (asking for a corner table, back to wall, and also indicated that this was a gourmet society card booking; we then had to request again the table - luckily it wasn't full so there were several possible locations, and had to make a last minute check, when about to pay, to ensure that the Gourmet Society discount would be applied ). , However food all very good - though possibly the quattro stagioni pizza was slightly stodgy and too many peppers, not enough artichoke/prosciutto
First time there - a family get together with several birthday celebrations with our ages 25 - 80. Everyone loved the evening and had nothing but positive comments. The food was delicious, the portions more than ample and the choice extensive. The service was attentive but not intrusive. It's a great little gem away from the city and will definitely come again.
Travelled from Lincoln to meet someone half way to celebrate a birthday. Had never been before. We arrived early to a warm welcome and the evening just got better. The food was amazing the service fantastic and will travel 40 mins again to meet friends/family there. We even had an umbrella escort at the end! Thank you!!
Very nice decor and the food is excellent, and reasonably priced, as is the wine. Only problem is, the staff are all so serious. There are a lot of them, the service is OK, but they don't smile and all behave as if they are under pressure, and a bit uncomfortable. Been twice now, and it was the on my first visit. Don't let it put you off though, just don't expect to have much interaction or fun with the waiters.
