From the moment you walk through the heavy, steel doors of Piccola Venezia, you know you're in for an experience. I swear it's like walking into a scene from a Scorsese film set in the 1970s. Totally old school with wooden and marbled walls, chandeliers, brass-plated plaques reserving the names of regulars from ages past (look for Tony Bennett's!) and... More

Travel here a couple times a year and the service/food is always the best. I've brought large groups at times and they always deliver the best service - always with a smile to make sure my event is great.

It's really sad and disappointing that old world restaurant institution like this, is loosing its reputation and its name due to mismanagement and bad hiring decisions. Food was still relatively tasty, not fresh, especially fish, like it used to be, but service was unfortunately so transparent, untrustworthy, and highly unprofessional..... Second time in the row I was stuck with Uspeaking... More

Stellar Dining experience! As we entered we were presented with several of the evening's food selections. Our server Antone was outstanding! He was very professional yet very personable. He made excellent wine suggestions and was very gracious. We were told and it proved TRUE -if you don't see it on the menu, the chef will make it for you! Fabitz!... More

I went to this restaurant on a business meeting with several colleagues this week. Excellent and plenty of food. The seafood platter was itself like a dinner. I had lamb chops and they were cooked extremely well. The dessert platter to share was also an excellent choice. Service of the place was also very good. This is not a fancy... More

Dinner at Piccola Venezia is a trip back in time. This is the type of service from our childhood. The food is great and there's lots of it. A whole fish elegantly filleted and delicious is quite a meal. Get in your car and don't worry that there's no place to park, they have valet parking.
