I had my wedding reception at Venuti's in September 2013. Everything went off without a hitch and the staff was super helpful with all of our requests. The food was excellent. All the entrees are cooked to order, no heat lamp warmed steaks like I've seen at plenty of other banquet halls. The cocktail hour and hors d'ourves were great... More

The food was excellent, there was a large variety of foods. The service was ok. The restaurant was half empty when we arrived, although we had a reservation ad it was a large party they didn't seem to be able to manage the table appropriately. We were charged for things we did not order and although we had told them... More

Very impressive as you drive up – Greek/Roman architecture with valet attendants. Warm elegance as you walk in the dining rooms. Special occasions are a must at this restaurant. Tonight we ordered for Meatballs as our appetizer and our entrees were: Caesar Salad with Chicken Lasagne Bolognese - lean meatballs, ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan cheese, topped with a meat sauce...

The owner moved from Italy and it was his dream to build a building that made you think you were in Italy. He succeeded with a true Roman style structure. Ate in the lounge. Server recommended appetizers since they were half price. Had excellent crab cakes and grilled octopus! Hope I can return some day.

This is not the first or second time I have been to Venuti's. We tried the buffet the first time and the food is in the buffet is ok at 11am- after 12, good luck getting anything fresh.
