Had a fabulous experience on sunday for my daughters communion she loved the pizza and toffee dessert and they even made her a little bunch of flowers from the napkins and gave her a box of malteasers it was very thoughtful she was delighted thank you for that.
My vegetable pasta was a delight and my boyfriend loved the steak . we will be returning

I really enjoyed the food. It was very fresh. Cooked to my liking. The workers were very friendly and attentive. The restaurant wasn't busy when I got there. The noise level wasn't too loud.

Had a very enjoyable evening in Little Venice last Saturday for my husband Paddy's birthday..
We were joined by family and everybody enjoyed the food. The food was excellent and certainly all orders were very good. Staff were excellent and one of the waiters showed my niece how to make a rose from a napkin...
Thank you for a great evening and look forward to visiting again soon!

Staff were warm and welcoming. Food was of a high standard. Cost was acceptable. I was overcharged for wine but that was satisfactorally sorted the next day.
Unusual unpleasant smell however overall a good experience.

Staff didn't seem to know about our booking when we arrived and left us waiting for about 5-10 minutes while they found a table for us. The waitress was quite nice and helpful. The others in my group enjoyed their food and drinks. My burger was brought out but it was not what I ordered, I mentioned this to the waitress who said she would check with the kitchen. She came back a few minutes later with the correct burger and was very apologetic - in reality, the chef had taken off the onion ring and replaced it with jalapeños to make it right, this meant the burger was freezing cold by the time I got it.

The restaurant itself had a nice, cosy atmosphere but had a very damp smell which took away from the vibe. I wouldn't return or recommend it to others.

It was nice brought my girlfriend for dinner only issue I had was food came out way too quick we had our starter litteraly 5mins after we sat down and whe the waiter came to take our plate from us our main was with us within 5mins . So from the time we sat and time we had our main was like 20mins. Now me personally I do prefer food to digest a bit but everything else good

Myself and my husband go out for an early meal with our now 9 year old every year for new years eve. This year we brought my brother and his family with us and thought we would give Little Venice a try and boy where we delighted we did. From entry to leaving the staff where absolutely amazing. Service was fantastic and food was to die for.
We would all highly recommend this little gem. We will be back.

Living locally, just looking for an occasional dining out venue. We were a party of 4. Everybody enjoyed the occasion. The value was good especially the bottle of wine at €12.50. The service was excellent.There was a nice atmosphere and the food was very good. Overall , an enjoyable experience.

We booked through Open Tablebut they didn't have a table so they sat us upstairs in dining room all by ourselves. That was fine but made the servers a bit less accessible. Great great food.
