Wow! Everything was absolutely flavorsome. Moreover, they delivered top of the line service! Our group ordered 3 different types of pasta dishes, a fish dish. a chicken and various appetizers. Nothing went wrong. It was just perfect!

I came here for my bachelor party the other night. We are all from different states and this was the last dinner we’d have together before we parted ways. The service was great and Ash(Ley) was very attentive and made our experience better than we expected. The drinks were great- a couple of us had some cocktails off their fall list and a couple had some wine from their extensive wine collection. Everything my friends and I ordered off the menu was a hit. I’m pretty sure we were silent the whole time eating. But thank you Ash and your amazing team for a wonderful evening.

I have two words for you guys: Mille Grazie!I'm glad that I found you! I'm glad that I had dinner at your wonderful place! Most of all, I'm glad that you have pleased my tastbuds and belly! You're the best! I did a comparison with an authentic Italian restaurant I once visited, and there was no difference at all! Keep up the good work!

I recently moved to Denver and have found many of the highly-rated restaurants to be lacking in flavor, quality, and service. Most of my experiences have been mediocre food at high prices. Such is not the case with this gem of a restaurant. They have an extremely diverse menu at reasonable prices in a more "upscale" ambiance. The servers are all helpful and attentive. The food is great as well. I have eaten here four times and every time has been wonderful. From pasta dishes to seafood, you can not go wrong here. I highly recommend the Cioppino! Cheers to you Venice for rising above 99% of the restaurants in Denver while keeping your prices reasonable.

Came for weekend dinner. The ambiance was good and they had pretty decent choices. The pasta was delicious. The texture was just right. Neither dry nor soggy. The filet mignon was delightful. It was seasoned and cooked well. The tiramisu was fantastic as well. Awesome hospitality and such an enjoyable night. I would love to visit again with family or friends.

I don’t frequent Italian restaurants very often because most are disappointing. Venice is the exception! We came with a large party for a birthday celebration and the service and food were impeccable! We will be back this next weekend for another birthday! I strongly recommend!

High-end atmosphere (accordingly pricy), very courteous and fun staff, and food is OK (deserts are better). Item (food and drink) shortages were sure a thing today... (maybe pandemic related). Vine galore. Conveniently located across Union Station downtown Denver.

Our Denver Italian Restaurant Feedback

Reviews

{We met friends for dinner who happen to have traveled in Italy with us. Each of us enjoyed our meals. Our waiter was attentive, but also let us relax and visit. We had been to Chianti before several years ago and will make more of a point to go there again soon.
Open Table Diner, Denver
{One of the few places where food has been the closest to authentic. The seating is a bit tight but the atmosphere and the service is at the top of the charts. I took my granddaughter there for her birthday. The staff was on top of things and brought out the most gorgeous and delicious desert. Absolutely fabulous!!! Thanks to the staff who made our dinner that more special.
