Description: We are an intimate bistro style restaurant located in the Historic District of Downtown Venice. Our Menu is Continental with a French and Polynesian flair. Don't let the name fool you-this is not an Italian restaurant. Walk or Bike to local shops and beaches and parks. Outside dining is available. Reservations accepted and walk ins welcome. Separate Lunch and Dinner Menu. Casual Fine Dining and Wine Bar (we do offer a full bar). We are very close to Venice Little Theatre now known as Venice Theatre. We are happy to accommodate all Theatre diners. Restaurant and full service catering are available. Lunch 11:30-3:00 (Mon - Sat),Dinner open at 5 (Mon - Sat),Sunday hours are dinner only (SEASONALLY)-call for availability. We serve a smaller menu between 3pm and 5pm outside or at the bar as well.

Reviewed 6 December 2007

We were in Venice for an informal family reunion of sorts. Girls and kids. We were limited to dining out as we have 5 boys among us ranging in age from 18 months to 10 years,and no sitter.
We usually get take out to bring back to the room or cook ourselves. One night we got salads from Cafe Venice. We ordered one of each on the dinner menu! Delicious! Wish we had ordered more! The place was packed on a Saturday night. It is cute inside. Nice bar area. Everybody we encountered waiting for our order was pleasant and smiling. Can't wait to go back and actually eat in! Tables outside also looked inviting.

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 3 October 2007

Friendly staff; original menu and perfect wine parings. We were allowed to mix and match a delightfully customized dinner for a mid-week break. The lavender rice, couscous, maple nut sweet potato, "fried" spinach, butternut squash, all combined with fresh blanched vegetables left us wanting to come again. There were many wines available by the glass as well.
