Venice is our favorite restaurant. We feel like royalty and the food is fantastic. The new additions in the menu are delicious, the mediterranean salad and the new pasta forno are to die for. Service is friendly and professional. The manager is always nice to us offering us complimentary desserts and lemoncello.

Exellent service is what we like the most at Venice. Leo is our favorite waiter. The food is always exceptional, presented beautifully and served by a wait staff that is clearly happy to be participating in the experience. We are always treated as a vip. Moderstely priced options with a very good selections of meat and fish make Venice our favorite restaurant in town. We always choose a $36 bottle of wine that is truly fantastic (SUPERTUSCAN WINE).

Outstanding Service and Great Food – I go to Venice with my family or employees every week.

We love it from the special welcome to the Buona Note.

Service is outstanding (Nunzio, Rodney and Lane) and the food is amazing ( cheese plate, cozze, fettuccine with sausage, lamb and the fish of the day).

The restaurant is beautiful and the wine is very well priced.

You must try it.

Expensive, Average Food and Pushy Service – I don't understand this restaurant. We went on a Friday and it was packed. The food was bland and the service was pushy.

When I tried to order a bottle of wine, our waiter told me I made a terrible choice, and told me in front of everyone that I must spend at least $40 to get a good bottle of wine. I ordered something else, but was really annoyed by him arguing with me in front of our guests.

I ordered the gorgonzola salad, which was bland with a watery cream dressing. My wife and I both love anchovies, but her Caesar salad was surprisingly fishy, not in a good way, and again, bland.

For entrees, I got the gnocci and veal special. The veal was ok, and the gnocci was, well, bland. And there was a lot of it, again, not in a good way. My wife got an average fish special that made us long for Bonefish Grill.

We presented a gift certificate that covered the meal and the tip, but the server wouldn't apply any of the gift certificate to the tip, so we had to wait again for the waiter to run us a credit for $5 (which doesn't buy anything at this place), and I had to pay the tip all in cash. The waiter said, without apologies, that he doesn't make the rules (and demonstrated that he doesn't give a rat's @$$ about them as long as he can upsell).

All in all, dinner for two cost $115. If you're going to drop a hundred on dinner for two, go some place with great food like Opus in Littleton, or with solid food at a good value, like Bonefish. If we had spent $100 at Duo in Highlands, I would have been amazed by the food and the service, rather than writing this annoying review.

If it had cost $50, I would have rated it a three. But it cost $115, so it gets a two. I might give the gift certificate to a homeless person so he can find another investor and split a desert.

Best Italian Food in Denver and Great Service – My husband and I went to Venice last and had a wonderful experience. Our server was outstanding and the food was amazing. I think it is great when an Italian Restaurant prepares their pasta in house instead of getting it frozen like so many other Italian Restaurant do. They also have an excellent wine list and our server was very helpful in helping us choose the perfect bottle. We are now big fans of Venice Ristorante!

The Best – I' m a frequent customer of Venice Restaurant in Greenwood Village and in Lodo. They always have great food and once you are at Venice, you feel part of the family.

Nunzio and his staff are impressive and when you bring your friends there, they will treat you like you own the restaurant. Let Nunzio suggest your dinner, from appetizers to dessert wine.

Great ambiance, best food and great people.

Such a disappointment! – My husband and I eat out every night and have become somewhat of connoisseurs of Denver restaurants over the years. We had heard of Venice a few years ago and had talked about going but it never seemed to work out. So we decided to go for Valentines day.

We were so disappointed! We each had a glass of wine, a bland caesar salad topped with four capers and a flavorless dish of mariner sauce mixed into under cooked (a little less than al dente) spaghetti encircled with shrimp. There was absolutely nothing special about the dinner except the $115 we spent. For this price we highly recommend Undicci (located where the old Fratelli's was on Old Hampden) or Gabriel's in Sedalia. Don't waste your time or your money at Venice-we wish we didn't!

Best Italian fine dining Restaurant in Colorado – We have been experiencing Venice Restaurant (Greenwood Village) for the past three years. In fact, we visit at least one time per month. We have hosted three parties of 16-22 people and most of the visits were with my beautiful wife and I.

There are quite a few highlights to Venice. Every time we visit the service (Hostess, bartenders, servers, bussers) is fantastic. Nunzio, the General Manager is one of the most gracious and accomodating people you would ever wish to meet. He is always there to greet you with a hand shake and "Buono Sera". We've been served by some of the top, most attentive servers in the city, Luis, Maria, Phil, (just to name a few).

The food, ah...the food. Alesandro and his team have put togeher an incredible menu, that is delicioso and consistent in presentation and taste. The salads are fresh and the pastas are always served Al dente! I would mention our favorites but that would take a whole page! (OK, the Antipastos, any of the salads especially Nunzios tableside Ceasar, the Pastas-Farfalle Fileto and Parppadelle Conghile Wild Boar), to name just few!)

The wine list is fantastic and it has a wine or every taste and item on the menu. The decor of the Greenwood Village Venice is beautiful with the vaulted ceilings, white table cloths and the beautiful glassware and lighting in the restuarant.

I could go on, but what I'm trying to say is that, you must call Venice and experience it yourself, you will not bve disappointed! Ciao and Bouno Sera!

Incredible restaurant for an elegant and romantic dinner – I was reading reviews listed at city search and couple of them were not so good.

I had been at Venice before for business meetings and it had always been fantastic.

I decided to take my wife last night. I was impressed to see a name tag with my name on the table ( I did not know who owned the restaurant ).

The manager Nunzio is always attentive, but this time he was extraordinary.

Last night we had the best food ever and my server was very helpful than ever before.

At the end of the dinner chef owner Alesandro approached our table bringing a fabulous dessert.

Was our best experience ever in a restaurant.

Venice is becoming the best restaurant in all Denver.

Great atmosphre, good food and attractive murals – March 14th 2008

This Venice in DTC is a jewel.

The manager (Nunzio is a showman). He told us that next week they will do Flambe' service table side.

This will be the only restaurant in Colorado to do table side flambe', i'm very extited.

At this Venice I had mozzarella caprese to start, I must say I never had mozzarella so fresh ever before.

Pappardele with wild boar was my pasta dish. UNBELIEVABLE............

My crepe di pere were outstanding.

My dinner was truly great.

The music is very romantic, but I suggest to have more diversity ( they play Bocelli for more than two hours ).

Don' t get me wrong, I like Bocelli but...............
