It just wasn't good. Red sauce tasted like Prego. Thin watery. Eggplant parm was a big brick of sliced eggplant with a melted piece of sliced cheese on top. Terrible. Made me so sad. It used to be so good.

AMAZING experience!!! So glad we made reservations. Walked in and fell in love with the atmosphere. Rob's service was outstanding and entertaining. The Lasagne, Cannelloni, and Spaghetti with Meatballs was better than expected and I had high expectations based on the other reviews. We'll be going back for sure.

Cheapest colon cleanse in the city! Average cost $30 per guest. If your interested in cocktails the crack head on the sidewalk can hook you up quicker. Pass all this up and you'll find Brocata's a few doors down is well worth the journey. Skip the sewers of Venice tour. Not sure what you ate? Don't worry.... Neither were we.

One of my favorite Italian restaurants in New Orleans by far. The authenticity of New Orleans meet Italia in a setting that is pleasant to the eyes with pictures of the old times and relaxed Italian family flair. The food is second to none. The service always seem to be great in spite of their short staff. Even the manager is in on making secure everyone is served and well tended to. I just cannot say enough about this place. A very special thank you to the team working as hard as they do to make dining at Venezia's a great experience. Remember to support the local businesses or we will all starve....

I will start by saying Italian isn't my favorite type of food because generally I think only two dishes I ever order lacks flavor. Accordingly, take this review with a grain of salt, but it is certainly my truth! We made a reservation for dinner, but I don't know if that's required. They were very busy on a Sunday night around 6:30 pm so I would recommend it. We were seated near the back, close to the bathroom and bar. The waiter was slammed but did her best. We started with a small salad and fried eggplants. The eggplants aren't cut in discs, they are cut more like sticks or wedges. They were nicely breaded. They are served with a too small serving of marinara sauce. I ordered the eggplant parmigiana and again, the eggplants were good. The spaghetti was so bland and flavorless. The spaghetti serving was so large and I didn't eat most of it. I couldn't eat it the next day so I ended up throwing it out. The garlic bread was also too hard.

Gil was such an awesome bartender - Rob the manager was also nice and friendly! First time and I must admit I enjoyed. Will be back soon ! Stuffed mushrooms was the best I had

We just went to Venezia today looking for a good Italian restaurant that wasn’t overpriced. The food was great for a great price and it had a great family atmosphere.

We had reservations for 7pm and showed up hungry. We ordered fried mozzarella, spinach artichoke bread, house salad, oil & garlic pasta, spaghetti and meatballs and a pizza. Ok, let's start off by saying we ordered way too much, but we wanted to try so many things and there were 3 of us. The apps and salad were really great. Both pastas were super tasty and the pizza (bacon and Canadian bacon) was excellent. Service was great, thank you Maria! Our dining experience was awesome! If we lived here we'd be regulars without a doubt.

This was my 1st experience with Venezia where the food was mediocre. Not at all what we were used to. The flavor and rich textures just weren't there.

The service gives this place 5/5. Make a reservation ahead of time. We went on a Thursday and we're glad we didn't have to wait. The owners know almost everyone that comes in it seems! The service was great and we got some awesome recommendations. Ended going with the wedge salad, spaghetti and meatballs, and steak. Not the most amazing food ever, but definitely tasty and I wound not think twice about going back again.

The ribeye was recommended by a family member and it was fantastic! Nothing better than steak and pasta. Will definitely return for the steak. 5*

Met a friend for lunch as this would be our last outing together before she moves out of town. We were on a time restraint so ordered only entrees. Food was fair, and definitely no frills. Not the most exciting food or service, but an ok spot for a quick, hearty lunch.

Food was amazing and great service!

The cheese bread was so garlicky and cheesy. The pizza was amazing and the wait staff was the best. Would recommend to others.
