If you are going here for Valentine's Day, be prepared to pay. They don't tell you on Open Table or when you call to reserve. They have one menu, $90 per person plus drinks, plus tip. Was so excited to go here for the special day. We, among several other tables, got up and left. Good news! You can probably... More

Great area, nice vibe in restaurant. A bit on the loud side, so for business purposes, it can be difficult to have a discussion with a group larger than 2 or 3. Service is very attentive, at times almost too much so, in that you feel a bit rushed out. For example, they didn't even ask if we wanted dessert... More

Was here for a dinner party and found the food very good. I ordered Sausage ravioli which was solid. I don't think I would order it again. Someone at our table had the steak with tortellini, which looked awesome and was reported to be great. I didn't order a salad but had salad envy when someone had the Caesar that... More

I ate at Venice Ristorante with my colleagues for lunch. The location is great, right across from Union Station. The service was outstanding! The menu had some interesting choices, along with old favorites. The calamari was a hit- lightly breaded and fried. I chose the Cappelletti de Zucca, which is ravioli filled with butternut squash and walnuts, with a tasty... More

This is a very popular area.We were very pleased with the ambiance, the colorful mural of Venice, the bar, and the quality of the food. I am a fan of carpaccio, and this was exceptional. I loved the... More

The ambiance was bustling with energy and excitement. The bar was packed but I was able to sneak a seat in. I had my Peroni, as usual and proceeded to have their Pappardelle Chingiale. (Pulled pork ragu served over thick Fettucini-esque pasta). Very delicious. For my dessert I was offered a chocolate soufflé and it was as yummy as I... More
