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

After going online, making reservations and letting the establishment know that I was coming to celebrate my 4th wedding anniversary, when my wife and I walked in we were greeted with, "Hello would can I help you?" I told the host that I had a 6:15p reservation and she located my name. She asked where did I want to sit.... 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.

The place was very busy on Wednesday. The Green Pepper Chicken was very well done as was the Salmon special. The service was good, but the food is excellent. This is a casual fine dining location. n

Five of us met for a business lunch. I will review only my lunch and experience. The restaurant was not busy, only four tables were occupied. We were seated without waiting; however, it took some time to receive the bread, a highlight of the meal. I ordered chicken Milano, without knowing what to expect. The portion was huge but consisted... More

Great atmosphere, great service, and great food....the wait staff really works hard to make your dining experience special. The only downside was the rude person running the cash register; he was not a member of the wait staff. He may have been the owner or the owner's son, but his arrogant manner and rude treatment of the wait staff certainly... More

Choose to sit indoors or outdoors if the weather is nice, occasionally there is live music playing. The table cloths and napkins are white linen. The dessert selection is superb and very decadent. The food is a cut above with ample portion size. Reservations not required but definitely advised.

Good food, great atmosphere for formal or business casual dining, and a great array of desserts too celebrate a business luncheon or personal dinner. The rum cake is a must to be shared by two or more or even taken home.

We've enjoyed Venezia's a few times. Always our choice for those special occasions. Reasonable price for the quality of food. I've enjoy the veal dishes. YUM. Lasagna passes my sweetie's test, and he's tough on lasagna. The escargot is only topped by the baked avacado shrimp appetizer. I usually will order both. Great atmosphere, service and food is tops. We've... More

We love to go here on date nights. The porch is a great place to eat in the evenings and the service has always been great.
