“Just down the road”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Looks good from outside, seems almost like a real Italian Tratt and the food was really very good indeed. I would go back :)

“Second visit as good as the first”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

We have been here twice now, the first being the day we arrived here in Auckland and we were taken here by friends. It's a nice relaxed atmosphere and the food is great (although the desserts are not as good as the mains). You can bring your own drinks which helps on the cost (which is good value) but they do also serve both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Hubby had a pizza both times and really enjoyed them whilst my pasta was also very good. We will be returning, no doubt. Probably a good idea to book if you want one of the two tables at the front of the restaurant which is open to the street with a protected area where people can eat outside if they want to (means people aren't walking right past where you are eating).

“This is one of our 'local' restaurants and it is still just as great”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

We have been coming here for years, as a couple, with friends, family and business associates, and never been disappointed. Many of our friends have also made it their 'local' because of it's seriously good food that is well priced and the variety on the menu always gives us alternate options if we want to move beyond the steak or chicken options. For me The Venice provides the best steaks you can get anywhere and if I'm ever looking to have a really great steak, this is where I head to. This restaurant has been in Milford, on Auckland's North Shore for many years and I hope it remains for many years to come. Parking in the evenings is also always within easy walking distance.

“Our favourite Italian”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

We have been here many times, perhaps 6-8? Always good value, lovely service, friendly staff, smile a lot. BYO is very helpful to save money on the wine and the corkage rate is reasonable. The food is delicious. The calamari entree is so yum! the female owner knows us and always welcomes us back, and especially our best friends who go there even more than we do!

“Fantastic dinning”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Went with six friends service was faultless and fast, surroundings are very pleasant, entrée, main and desserts fabulous. All six of us had the best evening for a very long time. Value for money was outstanding. Will return real soon.
Meals were large and presented hot.
