Reviewed 12 April 2014

If you are in Karlovy Vary, at lunch this restaurant is one of my favorites.
You can chose whatever you like from the card, and you will never be disappointed, very good kitchen at a reasonal price...

“Touristy Italian - BUT tasty food and value for money!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

During our spa stay in Karlovy Vary we visited this place twice, once for lunch and once for dinner.

FOOD & DRINKS
We tried the spaghetti bolognese, the pappardelle with chicken, one of the many pizza types and the lasagne alla bolognese. We were very happy with all of them except the lasagne.

The spaghetti was al dente and the bolognese sauce tasty. The pizza came with a thin layer of dough and generous amounts of very fresh toppings (in this case mozzarella, ham and mushrooms). For the pizza there are two sizes to choose from, of which already the smaller one looks overwhelming. However, thanks to the thin dough it’s still possible to finish a whole pizza (that is, the smaller version).

The lasagne looked and tasted pretty bland, not exactly bad but not at all as tasty as the other dishes. It also looked like this wasn’t the first time it had been in the oven.

MENU
Typical menu for an Italian restaurant (pasta, pizza etc). The menu can be found at Venezia’s internet site. Besides in Czech the menu is available in English, German and Russian.

SERVICE
Fast, friendly and multi-lingual (English, German, Russian) service.
(At the lunch visit we were perhaps a bit lucky with the timing, though, coming just before a bigger crowd. Once they appeared the staff response time slowed down a bit, but at that time we already had got our food…)

We also appreciated that they didn't apply the 10% compulsory service fee, which several other tourist restaurants in karlovy Vary have.

ATMOSPHERE
There is a nice glass veranda, but there smoking is allowed, unfortunately. The inner saloons are tastefully decorated with pictures from Venice.

SMOKING
The restaurant has got smoking and non-smoking areas. As the doors between the two are always open, one shouldn’t expect to get away from the smoke completely, though.

NOISE LEVEL
Comfortable.

PRICE LEVEL
Very reasonable, especially considering that the restaurant is located in the spa area of town (although at the edge of it). 120 Kc for the pizza and 130 Kc for the spaghetti bolognese is nothing to complain about.

VALUE FOR MONEY
Good value for money!

SUMMARY
We have the impression that Venezia cares to serve tasty, well-cooked Italian food, even if probably 95% of their guests are tourists. If/When you get tired of the Czech cuisine during your stay in Karlovy Vary, this is a great alternative!

“Very unfriendly and unprofessional Customer Service”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

We were looking forward to a nice Italian Dinner which we thought this to be a good Restaurant. I thought it was just normal not to be greeted and not politely being answered where we could have our seat. We ordered our food and as it has arrived, they were bringing all the food we ordered at one time, the appetizers with the main Menu. I was also wondering, if it is normal to serve the salat without any salat dressing, just plain. And when i asked the Waitress, she was in a hurry and just said she would be quick and bring me the dressing without even asking what i wanted. I actually only wanted balsamico and olive oil. She returned and brought some salat dressing and i told her that was not what i wanted. She was angry, speaking to me in an unfriendly manner. For me Customer Service is very very low in this Restaurant. I absolutely not recommend this to Tourist who wants to enjoy their visit in Karlovy Vary. So sorry for the Restaurant Owner if Customers don't come because of Workers like her.

“Disgusting”
Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

I write briefly. Communism is still alive. The pizza was not a pizza but a hard cake. I should have ordered only water.

“Enjoyable Meal and Ambiance....”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

We enjoyed our dinner at the Ristorante Pizzeria Venezia so much the first night so we came back for seconds!

First off, they have a good wine selection... After almost a week in the Czech republic and being subjected to inferior Czech wines (sorry) we were sooo pleased that they offered some good Italian wines at moderate prices.I must admit that I overindulged!

We ordered the house specialty...Eggplant (Aubergines) Parmesan. It was delicious and served with a lovely spring green salad with vinaigrette. The fried Calamari was typical but good.

On our second visit we sampled the Greek style salad, fried mushrooms and fresh grilled trout... All was good expect the fried mushrooms...

The service was excellent, prompt and professional...considering that dining in Europe doesn't have a great reputation for customer oriented service....
