This was a favorite place but service and quality has gone downhill since it has changed hands. One nice new development is that they now have full menu services at the bar. Great for me and my husband since we often choose to eat at the bar. The downside is the service at the bar is terrible. Bartenders are more... More

Had a birthday party for husband last night with 16 people! We could not have been more pleased with outcome. The selection of appetizers, cocktails, and wine was amazing! Everyone enjoyed their entrees. Chris was our server and could not have been more attentive to our every need. Brian, one of the owners, was especially accommodating and a pleasure to... More

Six of us and a 7 month old baby went for dinner this week. Let's start with the good--a stellar seafood pasta where seafood outnumbered the pasta and a creamy luscious lasagne. The curious--the two different orders of pizza (one prosciutto, one sausage) were served as one rectangular pie, skimping in portion size for each patron; pizzas were flavorful but... More

Would have given 5 stars if GF pizza crust had been available. GF pasta can be had but lots of choice for this GF'er. Everybody enjoyed their pre theatre meal.

Arrived at 6:45 and quickly seated. The service was good up to the point we ordered the pizza. Had a "Made in Italy" pizza and "Vegetable" pizza. Both pizzas came out almost done, with minimal tasteless sauce. I mean opening up a bottle of catsup would have more flavor. The young waiter waited until we were 3/4 done before offering... More

My grandfather and I wandered into this place on a whim. He ordered the veal and I ordered a vegetarian pizza. My grandfather expressed that the veal didn't have much flavor and he wasn't satisfied with the entire meal in general so we asked the waiter to bring a substitute dish. The waiter(Matthew) was extremely apologetic and had no problem... More

Had fabulous pizza and my husband had the pasta dish with sausage and truffle oil. We also had the new meatball appetizer which was very good. Espresso martinis as always never disappoint! One of our favorite spots!

There were four of us for lunch. I had the gnocchi with sausage and while it was delicious, there was too much oil. My wife had the gluten free carbonara which was good, but our friend had the sausage with broccoli rabe as an entree and it was bitter. I honestly thought she was being too fussy, but she took...

We love visiting your establishment every time we visit Venice. The atmosphere and quality of food, is unmatched locally. We love the extensive wine list, and personally the saltimbocca. Everything was perfect, and I think it was John at the bar, who made the cotton candy grape martinis, last time we were here. Those were unique and delicious!

I was headed for what Trip Advisor reviewers have said is the best Italian restaurant on Venice Avenue when I walked through the outdoor eating area at Made in Italy and heard the waiter patiently answering numerous questions from a diner (whose companion was even getting restless) and then telling him the specials. "Osso Bucco" made me stop. As it... More
