Excellent meal and great selection of wine and cocktails. I thoroughly enjoy the Branzino ai Carciofi - pan-seared fresh wild-caught Chilean sea bass with garlic, artichokes and capers in a lemon wine sauce, seasonal vegetables.

The limoncello salad was amazing, the wild boar pappardelle is to die for, the zabaione was from heaven and the service from Ash was impeccable. This would make my mamma very happy.

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.

Ash was our waitress, she was very knowledgeable of the menu and really cares about what she was doing. Couldn’t have asked for better service and would definitely return back to this establishment 10/10.

Romantic ambiance, dimly-lit. Service was very good and food was even better! I got the salmon and it was some of the best I have ever had. Everything tasted very fresh. The wine list was a little jumbled and the space is a little tight overall, but a nice experience.

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.
