Lovely dinner with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while. Service was excellent ..slow paced between courses allowed us to chat.
Food quality & preparation was excellent.
Planning a return trip with 4 of our other friends we haven’t seen!

I have been dining at Cafe Venezia since the beginning. The food is delicious and consistent. The service is excellent and the staff very attentive.
The only things that I noticed and the reason why I didn't give it a 5 are that the prices have gone up enough to make a difference, and the side veggies and potatoes (which I love) are smaller than they use to be!

Food was very good and we tried some dishes like the Fried Calamari Venezia that was delicious and prepared differently from most restaurants. Definitely worth the hour drive!

I have been to Café Venezia multiple times....actually its my go to place with my girlfriends & husband. I have always loved it. The owners are so welcoming, accommodating and friendly. This time we brought our in-laws who were visiting for the weekend. They honestly couldn't say enough good things about it, and continued to talk about it throughout the weekend. My father in-law is a hard one to please....and he gave it a thumbs up.

Literally one of the best places I’ve dined in Jersey. The food was not only terrific but unique. The passion in what went in to the menu is realized when you discuss the items with the owner and his equally engaged staff. The service was truly exceptional. I can’t say enough about the attentiveness of the entire group and taking the extra effort to make everything special.
Definitely remember to BYOB (wine store a couple of blocks up the road) to complete this excellent experience.
Ciao-
I will be back ...

The best
Bruno, Eddie, and Leo run a fantastic restaurant. Service is always great, food is outstanding. They put a different twist on classics but don’t worry you won’t be disappointed. Their fish is the best! My husband doesn’t bother looking at the menu he just asks what’s the best fish dish is that day and orders it. He is still a happy camper.

We have dined at Cafe Venezia many times and are never disappointed by the superb presentation , the specials and quality of food , the terrific and attentive service and the benefit of byob.
The recent addition of a room for larger parties is another step in the evolution of this Fine Restaurant
Cafe Venezia is the combination of all of the above and LEO who rocks!

I was once again so pleased by my dinner at Cafe Venezia. I had the mixed salad with goat cheese, pears, and raspberry vinaigrette which was delicious, Chicken Bella Vista with portobello mushrooms, roasted peppers, and fontina cheese which was excellent, and the decadently yummy Tartuffo for dessert. Service was exceptional as always. Highly recommend!
