The owner Beth is always friendly and recommends items on their menu. We go after tennis class and have the pizza special, They have live music on certain days and it's an open dining area

We'd heard about the new ownership at the Venice and a group we liked was playing there so a bunch of us made the trip over from Marquette on a Tuesday night. It was great. The Tuesday night special was a large pizza for only $6, so even by the time we added on some extra toppings and a couple... More

For my main meal I ordered the Fettuccine Alfredo. I was very skeptical at first before opening the lid because I was expecting to see what you get at most places, which is noddles literally DROWNING in white sauce. This is exactly how it looked when I took the lid off. The Alfredo sauce was so light and buttery that... More

There was a family reunion happening in the large back room so we stayed up by the bar. The pizza was great! Not... More
