Great Italian in Berkeley – Venezia is a great place to go with a group for dinner. The portions are large, the food is delicious and the service is friendly and efficient.

Excellent food, not pretentious – This place is a great value. The food is delicious, and the menu is exciting. The staff is extremely friendly and the atmosphere is casual. It is a great place to hang out with friends or even bring family and kids. But do not mistaken this place for a family restaurant - the food quality is very good and at very decent prices... For garlic lovers out there, you've got to try their Ceszar salad... their antipasto and fried calamari is also a killer... I've tried ALL (really!!!) the dishes on their menu, and I did not find anything that I did not like.

Good choice! – I found this restaurant on Citysearch and took some friends visiting from out of state. We loved the food and the service was excellent. I love the northern Italian atmosphere. The clothes line is a nice touch.

A GREAT EXPERIENCE – I was throwing a birthday party in a few days and I was frantically looking for a great restraunt.. I found Venezia on citysearch and I went in to talk to the manager who was very helpful and friendly. The birthday party went wonderful! The food was delicious, the sevice was great, and the decorations really added to the beauty of the whole experience.. Please, Please go to Venezia if you're looking for a great place to have yummy Italian food...
