Venice Ristorante & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews

This place was recommended by the hotel. It got decent reviews on yelp. Calamari was recommended and was just ok. They recommend squash ravoli with pine nuts. The squash was bathed in butter. In fact, the entire dish was swimming in butter. It was not edible. I left very disappointed.

We have dined at Venice Ristorante in downtown Denver previously and thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. Our most recent visit on the 16th of October did not meet our expectations. The service was excellent, however the food was not. Our main dishes, the chilean sea bass and bolognese lasagna were both served in a pool of oil. Way too greasy. We were told they hired a new chef which probably accounted for the difference in the quality of our meal. I'm not sure we will visit Venice Ristorante again.

This was the first time I had dinner at Venice. Everything was fantastic except for the portions. I left there still hungry after a beer, an appetizer, a small side salad and dinner (which was really good just not enough of it). Overall though, fantastic service, great ambiance, friendly waiters and quick seating. I think the happy hour is the best value however as you can enjoy happy hour pricing and order more food.

Waiter was not as professional as he should have been for this caliber restaurant. I ordered the squid ink pasta with clams (was told it was like the clam linguini). There were FOUR clams on the dish, with a small serving of pasta. Ridiculous for the cost of the dish. Had very little flavor, need parmesan to actually make it taste like anything. VERY expensive meal for little reward. Went to Venice 6 months ago, and had a fantastic meal. Don't know what's happened, but would not recommend it to anyone at this point.

Our server started out by telling us the menu and chef were new, and that the pasta dishes were very small -- seemed to be pushing the entrees -- At the end of dinner, our server presented us with our dining bill, and then charged our card for another table. She canceled the incorrect charge, and we proceeded to bay our bill. I now have two charges on my card (my dining table and another table), there is no reversal charge, and I am still waiting for a call back from the restaurant. Disappointing, as this was one of our favorite restaurants. No longer......

The service was outstanding and the food was unique and very good. The portions were rather small (which was odd for an Italian restaurant), but I imagine this keeps prices to their "$$" mark. The atmosphere and vibe were both very good but the wine list is what takes this place to the next level: A fantastic selection and a must-have for any Italian restaurant. We did have dessert and I recommend the Vulcano al Cioccolato. I would definitely return and recommend.

Service was excellent. Thomas was our server and was impeccable. He suggested an outstanding bottle of wine at a very reasonable price. The wine cellar is unique and gives a great look to the dining room.
The food was the best ever, specially the new chicken dishes and the homemade ravioli. We think the food has improved to a top notch level since our last visit in September.

My husband, daughter, and I celebrated my birthday at Venice -- our annual tradition. The new menu includes some of our favorites, as well as new delicious offerings. The innovative additions to the menu are wonderful! We each enjoyed one of the new entrees. Each entree was artistically presented. The service was impeccable and warm. The restaurant is a beautiful and elegant setting for dinner. The special desserts were exquisite! Our compliments to the owner, chef, and service team! You made my celebration the best yet! Thank you to you all!

The food at Venice was always good - but the new chefs -are outstanding!
Thomas are server was attentive without being overbearing.
We mentioned how much we enjoyed the food so the chefs (Derek and William) came out and sat with us. Greg the sommelier then visited for a while to discuss the wine.

Every course of the meal couldn't have been tastier or presented more beautifully. Delicious meal, wonderful service . My friend and I lost track of time and were almost late for our concert tickets and had to rush through cappucino. The waitress brought the check promptly and didn't charge us for the coffee. Enormous wine selection. Bread basket is amazing. My new favority restaurant in Denver.

My friend and I were visiting from out of town and had dinner on their lovely outdoor patio. Our waitress, Sarah, was so friendly and recommended a great (and reasonably priced) wine that went with our meal perfectly. I would definitely suggest ordering the pasta. Both of the pastas that we tried were phenomenal. Thanks to everyone at Venice who made our meal so special!

This was one of the most enjoyable evenings we've had in a long time. The food was great, the wine recommendations were spot on, our server and the atmosphere were outstanding. It was our 29th wedding anniversary and the evening was perfect.

We ate near this restaurant one evening and noticed it; we then made a note to try it. It's a beautiful restaurant with a great menu of food and wine. Our service enhanced the experience.
Everything tasted fresh, was beautifully presented and delicious. It was a great evening.
We were there on vacation, but if we lived there, would absolutely return.

Six of us went to Venice to celebrate our friend's birthday. We all had different meals and everyone agreed that the food was fantastic. The ambiance is what suffered. The noise level was so high, you could only talk to the person directly to your right or left. So, we missed out on having an enjoyable evening where we could all talk together. The tables are also VERY close together. The servers were constantly bumping into each other as well as the customers. After dinner, I couldn't stand the noise any longer, so we skipped dessert. I doubt if I will return to this restaurant given that there are so many good Italian restaurants around the Denver area.

This was not our first visit. We were excited to take out of town guests. Hoswever, the food quality has changed. And, one entree had to be remade in the kitchen before delivery for some reason. The delay was never mentioned by the server until the manager saw our frustration and found out about the kitchen error. The problem was made worse by the server attempting to rush the appetizers. When the entrees did come, one with a lobster sauce was extraordinarly strong. All in all, not a good scene. And, the result is that we just cancelled a future reservation.

Venice puts the awe in awesome. I've had a few dates at two of their locations. Both were setup to have a romantic ambiance. They have a fantastic wait staff that is very experienced and courteous too! The only thing I can think of was the noise level was just at a part where I had to ask the waiter to repeat himself a couple of times. Which can be frustrating for both of us. He did a wonderful job!
It is one of my favorite places to go!

Tables too tight.
Extremely loud and noisy
Food service was too fast paced
Food was average Italian, nothing made me go wow - mushroom ravioli was the highlight
Wine list is good, found a reasonable Tuscan cab franc that was good
No mention of my birthday that was noted in the reservation
Our server did her best but all in all I would not go there again
