I ate at Venice Ristorante with my colleagues for lunch. The location is great, right across from Union Station. The service was outstanding! The menu had some interesting choices, along with old favorites. The calamari was a hit- lightly breaded and fried. I chose the Cappelletti de Zucca, which is ravioli filled with butternut squash and walnuts, with a tasty... More

Venice Ristorante is located at the corner of 17th and Wynkoop, rich across from Union Station, a happening place itself these days. This is a very popular area.We were very pleased with the ambiance, the colorful mural of Venice, the bar, and the quality of the food. I am a fan of carpaccio, and this was exceptional. I loved the... More

The ambiance was bustling with energy and excitement. The bar was packed but I was able to sneak a seat in. I had my Peroni, as usual and proceeded to have their Pappardelle Chingiale. (Pulled pork ragu served over thick Fettucini-esque pasta). Very delicious. For my dessert I was offered a chocolate soufflé and it was as yummy as I... More

Have previously been to their restaurant in Greenwood Village and thought we would give this location a try. So we met another from Erie there as a good halfway point. They had never been. They were not disappointed at all and have been back since our visit. The service is always great and I mean great. The food has never... More

Accidently happened on this place after walking past it for a meeting at Union Station. This is the epitome of fine dining. Very gracious, knowledgeable staff. The food is wonderful, the wine selection is spectacular. Enjoying a business lunch mid day, with the beautiful music and amazing food - it is hard to believe busy Downtown Denver is just outside....

We ate here two nights in a row and had wonderful meals and great wine. The staff was different both nights but the service was consistently very good. We will return here many more times. Looking forward to eating outside when it warms up.

This was a special dinner for eight people in celebration of a fiftieth wedding anniversary. We had requested a quieter section of the restaurant and although it is a large and fairly open space we were seated where noise did not seem to be a problem. We were all seated quickly and received excellent service from our waitress as well... More
