My wife and I were looking for a special place for dinner and found this on Trip Advisor ... What a gem this place is! The food was incredible! We had the Bruschetta for starters. For dinner my wife had chicken piccata and I had shrimp and scallop alfredo, followed by Creme Brûlée. The food was incredibly delicious and the... More

We tried this place because there was a coupon for BOGO in the Entertainment coupon book. It ended up being one of our favorite places to go. My favorite dish is the "La Regina" pasta dish - wonderful seafood, delicious squid ink pasta. Yum! We've also had a few other pasta dishes and some of the pizzas. Everything has been... More

Dinner was outstanding. We did not have reservations but were able to get a table in the "bar area" which happened to be right next to the fire place. Food was matched with excellent and fast service.

We caught the tail end of the happy hour, arriving just before six. Explore the wines and beers on offer as there are rewards to be found. Similarly most of the starters are half price at that time and we can recommend the burata with pesto as well as the meatball dish .. great garlic bread by the way. We... More

We've been going to Old Venice for years. Best pizza (which is all we ever order). Love to sit outside on the patio when weather is good.

with a standard pizza & pasta repertoire, deprived from a tiny amount of imagination. Sterile, boring atmosphere, space ready for adaptation. Pizza bianca was nothing special, and the stuff-young girl-was not very interested about our wishes. Advice: go in the italian food shop next door, grab some cheese and salami, and bottle of good wine and enjoy it somwhere else.

We were visiting friends in San Diego and they brought us to Old Venice. We ate in the main restaurant, but could have been sat in the bar or a nice outdoor pation.
