I have known the Venetian for many years having first come here as a youth with family in the 70's. I have brought my own family here in the past and the place had not changed much. But on this visit I was happy to see a complete remodel had taken place. The revamped décor, personal attention by our waitress, and menu made the visit very enjoyable for my wife and I. Over the years, several good local Italian restaurants have disappeared. We can happily say we have found a replacement.

Had a terrific costumed Halloween dinner for 10. Private room. Food was so good. Had “soup to nuts” including multiple apps, charcuterie boards, entrees, dessert trays, wine, mixed drinks, expresso martinis etc. Great value for $80 pp. which included tax and tip. John our server was outstanding. Very attentive. Everyone was served at the same time. Perfect spooky night ! Thanks !!

Fantastic meal with impeccable service. The Sunday gravy was probably everyone's favorite but loved the Carbonara, Pizza and Parmesan too!

Second time in two weeks- definitely ask for the first two main dining rooms- was half full and the hostess walked us right by a dozen comfy Empty red booths and fun ambiance and sat us in the back room which is more like a function room set up with uncomfortable chairs and the room is super noisy listening to every tables conversations. Def. needs some sound deadening. Wasn’t relaxing like the first visit. Wait staff varies too- first visit- Caesar came out split for us- nice touch,- carbonara was a little mushed and salty, NY STRIP was cooked nicely. Cocktails varied as well had the same manhattan featured on their menu both weeks- first week came out on the rocks and well balanced with the vermouth, second not the same and straight up- not a problem but consistency is something restaurants strive for. We will give it another shot but request sitting in the better ambiance.

Yes, I would strongly recommend going. The food was expertly prepared and appreciated the balance in the flavors of the dishes. It has recently been renovated and it looks great.

The meal was good. The waitress was helpful & pleasant.

A little too dark when it came to reading the menu.

Also would prefer the scali bread the restaurant had before!

Food was very good, priced right but a glass of wine was 18.00! The wine cost more than the meal. We discussed it with the owner/chef but he was dismissive and unconcerned. The wine was priced too high for a Weymouth neighborhood restaurant. With 4 of us enjoying more than 1 glass of wine the bill was a little shocking. I doubt any South Shore restaurant is charging 18.00 a glass.

It's great to have the old neighborhood restaurant back, but with a few updates! Food is much improved, lighter and fresher, but the generous Italian sized portions remain.

Good italian food, nice casual atmosphere. Pleasantly surprised as we hadn’t eaten here since previous ownership and didn’t care for it back then. Will be back
