“A small town gem!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Friendly staff, delicious meal and excellent service for a reasonable price. Happy hour beer and appetizer specials, with a salad bar that had exquisite garlic rolls!

“Nice Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

We wanted some good Italian food and Little Venice Ristorante was recommended to us. The food and service was excellent and was well priced. You got plenty of food for your money. We would go there again.

“3.5 stars-Huge portions, taste just okay”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

The small salad bar was a surprise and I appreciated that it came with the meal. The homemade pasta (which is only some of their dishes) was not nearly as good as other homemade pasta I have eaten. Everything was edible, but nothing was spectacular.

One of the worst dining experience ever at Little Venice tonight. We had about 2 hours to dine while our daughters were at the MIddle School dance. The restaurant was busy but not unusual for a Friday night. We were seated about 7:10, our drink orders were taken shortly thereafter but we didn't get our drinks until about 7:35-- placed our dinner order sometime before that (burger and fries for me, scallops for my husband). Meal was delivered to our table at 8:10-- my burger and fries were, at best, lukewarm; coleslaw was also lukewarm. Husband's scallops were lukewarm and butter/broth was congealed. 8:20 server returned to check-- was told of our dissatisfaction. Took the meals, brought the SAME food back that had been reheated. Really? Cold food, reheated? Even more stale? Complained again...and dollars were taken off our bill but that wasn't really the point. We were hungry when we came in and left hungry because the food was inedible. The server didn't want to alert the manager nor did he want to complain to the cooks because he didn't want to make them mad.
You lost some local customers and earned yourselves a number of bad reviews on as many social media sites as I can find.

“Hometown restaurant where everybody knows your name”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We don't have many places to eat in Trumansburg. If we did, I think Little Venice would still be popular. Mostly because of the wings. You can get any number of custom sauces, and even BONELESS wings. Which makes it a little too easy, but I'm not complaining. Fish fry is good. French fries are good. Tons of italian meals that I'm too chicken to try. Huge space. Pool table. Good for kids, or to sit at the bar and watch cooking shows and baseball. They give out poker chips for free drinks (well and draft) during happy hour. A lot of the servers are sweet.
