Great place for food and drink and their seafood linguine is to die for the best I have ever had. Conveniently located on the Quay in Exeter I am always made very welcome even though I might be on my own.

We booked but being a very cold evening in January the place was very quiet. No matter, we were soon welcomed and warmed by great food. The Roma pizza with a little additional goat's cheese was brilliant and I would recommend the Venezia polpette. We had starters and mains and a couple of drinks each. The bill was £50 and... More

We went here for a family lunch with friends and it soon became clear why it was empty. The restaurant was freezing cold with a small heater in between some of the central tables. Service was certainly NOT with a smile and staff were rude! We won't be returning! Food was ok but definitely nothing to rave about!

We held our works Christmas party at the Venezia, the atmosphere and ambience were superb with a great choice of menu, we were well looked after by the waiting staff and the drinks were a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend this establishment for any occasion.

We visited Bar V on New Years' eve, they had live musicians singing & playing during dinner which created a nice atmosphere. We ate from the NYE special menu, three courses & a glass of sparkling wine, a good choice of dishes to cater for a tastes. Tables cleared after dinner to make space for dancing with a mix of...

Popped in for a morning coffee and cake my husband had a big bit of chocolate fudge cake and I had a cherry flapjack that I shared with my two year old son. The cakes were yummy but the chocolate cake a little expensive. The cappuccino was good. The server was nice and its a nice place to sit and... More

Sat at one of the many benches outside the restaurant alongside the river in the sunshine, and watched the world go by on a Sunday afternoon. My family had cold drinks and I had a cappuccino, with some snacks - would recommend the cheesy garlic bread on a pizza base. Note your outside table number, order inside and the food... More

Filled with Venetian romance and Mediterranean spirit, Bar Venezia sits on the tranquil quayside, next to the River Exe. The extensive menu not only offers Italian classics, but also Portuguese, Spanish, French and Greek delicacies, which are perfect to enjoy with river views on the ample al fresco seating. The Mediterranean buzz kicks up a gear with the regular dance classes and club nights, making it a true slice of the continent.
