We went for pizza -which was good. Several non-standard options including roasted vegetables with balsamic drizzle. We had that and were pleased with it. You can also "build" your own. There are also many non-pizza options. We ordered cocktails and were given the option of trying the owner's "homemade" organic vodka. Slightly more per drink, but it's a nice, smooth... More

I ordered an individual sized pizza with ham and pineapple. The pizza was not done and the dough tasted like off the grocery shelf pita bread. The sauce was average. Any chain pizza would taste better. This was the only entree ordered. The other selections available may be better.

Ordered the eggplant parm - the eggplant was overcooked - tasted burnt. The spaghetti sauce was tart and side of fries salty. I was excited to eat there since I had heard nothing but great things but the only thing to applaud was the service.

This place has fabulous Italian food and the homemade bread is out of this world. The pasta is delish!

Informal, well prepared dining on the Square without being too pricey - though the online menu doesn't list the prices. The pesto primavera gets five stars to my taste. The chowder is excellent, though peppery. In fact, the chef obviously has a heavy hand with the peper. The oil for swabbing the starter loaf of bread was too peppery and... More

We seem to only visit here when we have friends in town. Not sure why. They have pretty good pizza it's just located on the square and it's hard to find parking. Hubby really likes the crust he says it's just the right thickness with some crunch and it's not sweet. I always go for the pasta. It's worth a... More

The service was excellent, but the food was average. The egg plant was overcooked and lacking in flavor. The lasagna OK, but again nothing special.

Great place to grab pizza or you can build your own. The crust was really good and the ingredients were fresh. Nice selection of wine & beers. Service was ok considering it was very very busy!!

We visited Old Venice for a lunch on our way out of town. I LOVE pizza, and they did not disappoint. The others in our party opted for various other meals, and all were excellent. They have a nice variety of pizza toppings and combinations. Additionally, they have a modest selection of other Italian dishes such as raviolis, lasagna, etc.

Went to visit son #2 at Ole Miss and he suggested we eat here. Oxford has some amazing food and this is one of the places you can find it! The bread was wonderful and fresh. The appetizers are great-especially the crab rolls-WOW! The crab and crawfish chowder was nothing short of amazing. The mains were great as well. Everyone... More
