Venezia is the Italian name for the city of Venice, and while The Wirral is also by the sea (and Tranmere Rovers are as useless as Venezia’s squadra calcio) there aren’t many obvious comparisons that can be drawn between Birkenhead and the north-east of Italy. Head to Venezia Restaurant on Prenton Road in Prenton – right by Prenton Park, incidentally – and you might, however, change your mind. They offer a taste of Venice that is not to be missed, with a menu that is filled with Italian favourites that the whole family can enjoy, with a huge range of pizzas, pastas and mains. We’d recommend the veal alla Venezia, escalopes breaded and topped with cheese, parma ham and bolognese sauce, or for the truly ravenous, the leg of lamb al forno, roasted in orange and honey. Book your table now and head to Venezia for a taste of the bel paese in Birkenhead.
From the minute we arrived we were well looked after. The staff where very friendly and helpful. The surroundings were clean and inviting, and as for the food, you could not have asked for anything better. Very tasty well presented plate of food. Keep up the good work.
Villa Venezia serves excellent food and deserts. The staff are very friendly and speak Spanish and Portuguese! I had a beautiful red rose after my meal so...next year remember to go to Villa Venezia for your Valentine's.
Amazing team and wonderful food. This restaurant is consistent with its great service and tasty food. We return on a semi regular basis and each time is as good as the last!
Very friendly staff, lovely environment great service and great food I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will I look forward to my next visit
We visit Villa Venezia with friends on a very regular basis because the staff are all fantastic, the menu has plenty of good choices and the food is always delicious. We would not hesitate to recommend the Villa Venezia
Excellent , always a good evening at Venezia ,good food, excellent service and family friendly. Always worth the 1 hr round trip from Chester to dine at Villa Venezia and on line booking makes booking a table easy and quick.
A party of 8 of us went yesterday for the Christmas lunch menu. What a beautiful meal we received. All the food was piping hot , with fresh vegetables and lots to eat. Starters were all lovely, and what generous portions of deserts we all received. Every course was delicious. Would recommend this resturant to anyone. Also thanks to all the brilliant friendly staff ,
Food quality mostly very good. We had a variety of dishes between us all & most were satisfied with their meal. Cramped seating unfortunately, booked a table for 8 but was seated at a table for 6, so elbows getting in each other's way. Used to eat here on a regular basis, haven't been for years. Would go again but not in a large group as the tables are very close.
Slightly frosty reception from one waiter on entering as it was extremely busy (luckily we had a booking) . Waiters were run off feet taking and delivering orders so didn't get to order more drinks and skipped dessert as felt rushed. Have had better calamari and bigger portion for the price but overall enjoyed the pizza and lamb cutlets were amazing. Will definitely return to try something else on the menu.
As usual we really enjoyed our visit to the Villa Venezia. There was a great atmosphere despite our reservation being 17:30. The place was really buzzing and the staff were pleasant and helpful as always.
