    We were only in Denver for a couple of days staying at the Crawford Hotel at Union Station in downtown. Right across the street was this excellent looking Italian restaurant so we gave it a try. It was quite good, a little noisy, but the food and service were excellent. Would suggest it if anyone is staying at the Crawford or a hotel in the area.

    Food was fantastic, service was wonderful. Sabrina, our server, was very friendly and took excellent care of us. It was a lovely evening so we got to sit outside, which added to the experience. We very much enjoyed our time at Venice Ristorante & Wine Bar and will go back if we visit Denver in the future.

    I usually really enjoy Venice! But the service we received last night was terrible. We were sitting outside and seemed to be ignored for the most part. We never received our appetizer that was ordered and waited over 30 minutes to receive a glass of wine. Just sad service. Food was great!

    The ambiance, food, and service was spectacular. Also, we loved the wine list. What we did not like was the very loud, and very cheesy Italian music. Also, you were out of the banana bread pudding which disappointing so we will back to try it another time.

    The food was absolutely delicious- fresh Burrata with Arugula and roasted beets with very fresh, crispy Italian Bread was a great start. Fresh pasta and tortellini with the mist luscious Gorgonzola sauce and personal service from the sommelier made the experience very enjoyable. Great wait staff and ambience. We will return!

    The service was very, very slow and indifferent. It took about 30 minutes to get drinks and the various courses were noticeably delayed. We asked for more crackers and our request was ignored. The food quality was not good. The gnocchi tasted like something out of a vacuum pack in the supermarket. Yuck!

    Was looking for a restaurant to take my husband out for Father's Day and finally found one that looked great, it was of yours Venice Restaurant & Wine Bar. Well I made a great choice!! This place is awesome, food, atmosphere, are great. Can't even describe how good the food was. And I was surprised that the prices were not extravagant. We enjoyed our dinner very much and would go there again. You have to try this place, you'll love it as we did.

    The sever was super nice, everyone was very nice. The food was delicious, wine was good. However the service was insanely slow. It took almost 2 hours to get food. Also it is insanely loud in there, which is only a problem if you’re expecting a quite Italian meal. Still a good restaurant.

    Recently dined here. Good meal, all courses were tasty and well presented. It looked quite busy for a Monday night and our waitress, charming as she was, seemed a bit overwhelmed with the number of tables she was looking after. Consequently, our meal took an inordinate amount of time to complete (two courses each, some wine and coffee) and we were one of the last to leave having had an 8pm reservation. The restaurant should ditch the iPad for ordering drinks. It doesn’t work. Our waitress took ages to locate one and then it was inconvenient to use.

    Service was not great. Drink orders were wrong. Waited way to long to get wrong drink order. Had to to constantly flag down or wait for waiter to get another drink or something else. Overall the food was good. I'm not a fan of the wine list. Seemed limited. Why do they not list the full bourbon list on the digital menu?

    Service was good and food was excellent. Some of the presentation is lacking for example the risotto was on a plate vs a bowl with no fresh garnish. The noise level when busy makes it difficult to have conversations. Not as relaxing as it could be.

    Lacking and inattentive service with multiple lengthy delays including drinks, food and table clearing, linguine seafood dish with mushy spaghetti instead of linguine and questionable quality "fishy" unfresh and occasionally closed mussels, odd prominent taste of truffle in Bolognese dish, billing mistakes. Good appetizers, good other two main dishes, but 50% of main dishes ordered were questionable, coupled with poor service. Questionable items were removed from bill, then bill was corrected after mistakes cited, but generally you just want a decent, hassle-free experience at full price and just enjoy yourself without worrying about all these annoyances, especially when it is a birthday celebration -- we would have rather stayed home and celebrated.

    Food is fantastic, but unfortunately the restaurant is LOUD where we could barely hear each other and service was incredibly slow on a Wednesday for dinner. But value and quality are great. We've had nice experiences there before, but this time was a little disappointing.
