“Kids give their pizza a thumbs up!”

Venezia Italian Family Rest

Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 October 2015

This review is for the pizza only, as that's all we've had there for the past 10 years. Any time friends visit from out of town, take out pizza is a "must-do" on the list so they can let others enjoy their favorite pizza. Take out staff is pleasant, and pizza chefs always greet my kids from the kitchen. The restaurant itself might be a different story, but I can recommend the pizza, especially the takeout specials on Monday and Tuesday nights. Also nice that the owner participates in regular "school nights" to donate to local schools. Gives a nice sense of community.

Best "authentic" Italian food in Advance or Winston-Salem. Very reasonably priced and family friendly. The pizza is awesome. This restaurants compares well with restaurants in the east coast!

The positive points of our visit included a pleasant waiter and a decent salad. We were disappointed in the long wait for our pasta and gyro. The waiter recognized the excessive wait time and gave us a 10% discount.

The captains wafers were stale and the ketchup dispenser was clogged with dried residue. The Alfredo was bland.

Having happily dined there twice previously, we were VERY disappointed to visit the place early on a Friday evening. On entering, half of the restaurent was empty and the other half was well populated. We stood at the door for about 3 minutes to be escorted ( we thought) to a table. We were in fact, asked to sit on seats at the door for 5 mins, while they prepared at table??? We were taken to a table and told that someone would be right over to take care of us. 5 mins passed, 10 mins passed (still no service)... 15, then 20 mins elapsed with still no service. On looking to the rear of the restaurent, there were 4-5 staff polishing tables and chatting!! We got up and started to leave and on the way out, one of the staff said "Oh, why are you leaving". It's a pity the service stinks as the food is good and is competitively priced.

Food was good. We were with a large crowd and the service was good. We were dissapointed to find out they that did not serve alcohol, but the food was good!
