While we have frequented Venezia for years as a favorite for Italian food recently we were told it was the best kept Secret in New Orleans for a great steak especially on Wednesday night. So we tried it and were impressed. The restaurant had an updated decor which was comfortable and family friendly. The steaks were excellent, cooked exactly as we requested and served sizzling on the platter. We ordered a caesar salad which was enough to share with all four of us and the steak came with choices of sides all of which were excellent. One item that was surprising was the absence of a baked potato but we didn't miss it. So the verdict was yes indeed a welcome surprise, excellent steak in a New Orleans restaurant not known for it's steak ... that is until locals like me share this experience with family, friends and visitors. Watch out Venezia, new friends looking for a steak are on their way.

Overall the meal was good however the service lacked. There was no welcoming engagement from the staff at any time throughout the evening. Would try again as the food was good but the service needs to improve.

Bread was overdone, garlic bread was bland and pizza had a bunch of mixed dried herbs thrown on top which was overpowering and detracted from the flavour as a whole. Lovely service though.

We arrived just a few minutes late but were greeted at the door, seated without any delay. We had an early reservation as we were on our way to the theatre. The whole experience was definitely pleasing and we would go back again when in the area. The starters were well presented and had a wide choice, for the main we had the seafood special which again was very nice, we do not like olives or capers and as everything is to order it was no problem to make the order to our requirements. The dessert of Panna Cotta and Creme Brûlée was a perfect finish to the meal.
We wish that there were more restaurants of this quality in the south of England where we live

Pleasant surroundings, romantic lighting- though this can make the menu hard to read if your in a darker corner. Superb specials options. Service impeccable and staff very amiable. Fish dishes we had were cooked to perfection. Very busy on this night so quite hard to hear each other talking because of the volume level of everybody talking. On quiet night would be perfect for a romantic meal.

Told that the kitchen ran out of gas - after waiting 1.5 hours between our starters and main course.
When it did come it wasn’t worth the wait - lacklustre and unappetising food.
Order came wrong - how many Italian chefs/ restaurants don’t know what a pizza marinara is? Two orders for a vegetarian pasta, ordered off the menu were revolting - I asked for an aglio olió type pasta with courgettes or spinach - no mushrooms, peppers - the waiter offered me carrots and peas in it and I said no. It came up with carrots and broccoli. Never had chopped carrots in a past dish, unless it was bolognese.
They tried to rectify the problem when the bill came by apologetically telling us their restaurant is not normally like that. And offering some money off and the pizza taken off.

It was our son’s birthday and we had travelled from London to meet him and take him out. We don’t know the area and based our choice on previous reviews.

Rather un-inspiring fish was deboned at table by server who was clearly practicing. Took too long, looked a mess and resulted in cold meal. To make matters worse owner wanted to stream live on Facebook. We did not want to be filled and unsure as to the point of filming two fish being shredded. Would stick to the pizza!

Positives - Great setting and building, nice ambience, very good tasty food, very attentive friendly staff.
Negative - service was just way too quick, our starter arrived less than 5 minutes after ordering and then almost as quick as we had finished our plates were cleared and the main course arrived. We were literally in and out in 40 minutes. Might be fine for a lunch service where you need to get back to the office but for a Saturday night it all felt a bit rushed.
Didn't put us off though and would definitely return.

Our second visit to the venezia and yet again we had a fantastic experience. the Garlic mushroom starter was superb and well presented and the crab linguine was gorgeous. We drive 50 minutes to get there and it is well worth it. We will be back again and again.....
