Our appetizers were fine, calamari and the wedge salad. The entrees were good, the filet and the veal in cream sauce with shrimp. The desserts were NOT GOOD. I am a baker and the Italian Creme icing was all wrong. Tasted like lard and powdered sugar. The rum cake had to have been a box mix. They were both disappointing.... More

I ordered eggplant Parmesan and I got a big glob of over cooked eggplant topped with what looked like cheese whiz (their special sauce?!?) . Sent it back got another disgusting plate. I've been there 2 times in 2 years and terrible food both... More

Always impeccable food every time I eat here. Try the escargot appetizer...it's fantastic! I've NEVER had a bad entree from here, food is always amazing! Service is on point and usually fast.

Made reservations for Christmas Eve night. The atmosphere was lovely. Ordered calamari. Was very good but rather small serving. Entrees were lasagna, eggplant parmigiana and chicken dish. All came with a side of fettuccine alfredo. Everything was bland and barely warm. Very disappointed. Would try again when in town.

I went here on the recommendations of a co-worker, I wanted a good steak. When I arrived and looked at the menu I quickly changed my mind. The ribeye was $37.00. There is no way I am paying that much for a steak, even on expenses! I had the veal parmesan. It was good, still over priced though. Not a... More

Can't beat the atmosphere and quality food. It was quiet and the perfect location for a business lunch. Most restaurants are so noisy you cant have a comfortable conversation. This was very pleasant. Food was superb. Had a salmon Caesar salad. The salmon was cooked to perfection. Perfect portions and staff was top notch.

As an Anniversary Dinner Surprise, my husband took me to eat at Venezia last night. While the restaurant is beautiful, my first impression of the staff was not a pleasant one. We entered the restaurant smiling, dressed in a suit, dress, heels and shawl, and the hostess asked "How can I help you?" She didn't acknowledge that we were here... More

We once again enjoyed this lovely Italian restaurant in Midland. The service was flawless, and the food delicious. They have several veal dishes on the menu, and my husband and I each ordered one. Both were very yummy. The restaurant is well located in a convenient strip mall. It is very attractive and comfortable.
