“Anniversary dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

My husband made reservations for our first trip to this restaurant. I've been coming to Westerly for over 20 years and never knew it existed. I had the seafood fra diavolo, which was delicious and he had a steak, which he said was good, not $30 good, but good. I think it was really $27, but close enough. Oddly, while we were there, an employee started yelling very loudly at a coworker. No one came out to apologize which we thought was odd since the owner or manager was there the entire time. We didn't let this ruin our night, it was still a nice dinner. I'd recommend leaving the lights on low to keep the mood romantic.

“Nice Dining Experience ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

A nice restaurant. We needed a light dinner and Venice was perfect. The pizza, while not what I was used to in a pizza was still good. Linguini and clams - delicious. Service was very good.

We went to the bar for the view and get the dining room menu there. Best braised ribs and risotto ever. Nice wines

“Good meal with a great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

On our short stopover in Westerly we found very few choices for dinner, but one doesn't need a lot of choices if there are a few good ones. We decided on the Venice and we were glad we did. We had enough sense to ask to go up to the top floor to the "bar" where there are still plenty of tables and the same menu that is found in the first floor restaurant. The advantage of the top floor is all the glass that offers a full view of the shoreline, and in our case the setting sunlight on the whole area. The menu is not huge, but the choices are quite varied and as we found, quite well prepared and tasty. I had a perfectly prepared prime rib shared with a perfectly prepared order of fried clams. The salads and sides were fresh and perfectly prepared. And of course the chocolate cake wasn't going to survive our visit. Service was excellent and attentative, and the whole experience was a nice relaxing evening after a relatively long hard day of travel. If you're on the beach in Westerly make the Venice a stop on your agenda.

“Great food year round!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

We enjoy eating here because the food is consistently delicious, presented well and in a timely manor. The service is outstanding and they make you feel that they are glad you came to dine and they want to make your dining experience memorable. We have had both fish, meat and pasta dishes. They will also substitute extra veggies for the potato side, if you are watching your carbs. If you have any room left, try the bananas foster. It's to die for!
