not sure what to say other than pasta side dish was the worst I have ever had. Hard, dry bla truly disappointed. I understand chinese 19 has killed the business but Saturday night only two tables of people and no reason not to have fresh pasta. No lasagna seriously

Very clean. Took us 10mins before our reservation as we were early. Prompt service. Great food. Highly recommend.

Real petty but one area to improve. Warm that butter please. Spreading cold butter is a pain.

This was our first experience dining inside and we were nervous but the tables were appropriately spaced, everyone had masks till seated—we felt very safe. We’ve been going to Little Venice for over 50 years and were not disappointed.

I had reservations for 1130am. Website and open table have them opening at 1130am. We got to the restaurant and found out they open at 12 noon. Hostess was kind enough to seat us anyway. Food and service was outstanding. Just need to make the opening time change on all media.

My wife had the Chicken Pizzaioli which was very good. I had the Little Venice Original Chicken Parmigiana which was very dry. I was very disappointed in my choice. The service was excellent. Our reservation through OpenTable was handled very well as were were seated without any wait.

This is our favorite restaurant to take our son and family. His children have food allergies. But, preparation as we request, is never a problem. They can confidently enjoy the experience.
Part of our visit is always includes Grandma taking them to the gift shop to look around. We sent 4 Binghamton Tea towels and sauce to our new “Virginia” relatives via other son’s marriage!! Great reviews for the Sauce!

Birthday dinner for my daughter. I will say the restaurant didn’t acknowledge her birthday at all even though we put it in the reservation. Usually issuing open plan the restaurants acknowledge the special occasion.

Service was excellent in a real “old school” Italian restaurant. The restaurant is amazing and the food does not disappoint. There are no bad choices. Save room for a trip to the Gelato Shoppe and a killer Cappuccino.

My husband introduced me to Little Venice a little more than 15 years ago and it has been "our spot" ever since then not only for special occasions, but just because we're craving it! The food is always delicious and the servers are always friendly and are right on the job.

Place was amazing. Nice atmosphere, not too crowded. And the food was off the chain, come with a big appetite because the servings are for the hungry and I can say I was satisfied. Also nice attentive waitresses, didn't have to wait to long for anything.

Old School Italian place in downtown Binghamton. We loved it. Homemade pasta, good sauce and hearty huge portions. Very fun dinner. Our waitress was amazing!! So friendly, knowledgeable and made our experience very pleasurable. My nephew just started at Binghamton so we will be spending a lot of time at littleVenice over the next 4 years. We found out go to place for our weekend family trips. Thanks for a great night and dinner out.

Decided to come to this restaurant as a meeting place for friends from our of town. Timing of our meal Saturday afternoon allowed us to visit and enjoy the company and food at the same time. Friends from out of town were happy with the quality and portions provided. I would recommend this restaurant in the future.

Little Venice is a landmark, and so glad to note that the food and service are still excellent. Such a friendly greeting at the door, and very prompt, timely, and accurate service. My wife likes her martini in a particular way, and it was perfect. All of our food was so tasty. I planned to take some of my chicken parm home but ended up eating all of it!

Great job, definitely worth a visit.

Our first visit. Waiter was great! Attentive with nice sense of humor. Fettuccine Alfredo was the best I have ever had! I am not an Italian food fan but I can’t wait to go back and have some more of their homemade pasta!

It had been a while since my family had been to Little Venice but it has always been a place we loved. At this visit our service was very slow and our food was COLD (not even room temp, cold).
