It used to be a good standby--but it is no more. While the review must be at least 100 characters, there isn't much else to say--since there is no reason for anyone to ponder whether to go to a restaurant that no longer exists. I...More

I like to take visitors to Venezia. The food is dependable, the atmosphere is friendly, the prices reasonable. Waiters are knowledgable and the service is good. There is a private room in the back for parties of 8 or more. Parking is not a problem.

I ate late on a Friday evening with a friend and I was not dissapointed. The service and the food was very good. The portion sizes are just right, food was served hot and presentation was excellent. Well worth a visit.
