Venezia Restaurant Review

: Nothing much ever changes at Venezia, where traditional Italian food is served to the strains of Dean Martin’s “That’s Amore” lilting from the sound system. A face lift retained the old-fashioned décor of this Mid-City classic. You may wait for a table any time you show up, but the bar is a comfortable spot for a frosty brew. Food-wise, the Sicilian-style tomato sauce approaches purple in its cooked-down richness, and the fettuccine al’ Alfredo takes on gargantuan proportions. Traditional-style thin-crust cheesy pizzas loaded with fennel-flecked sausage or fried eggplant are the house specialty, while a culinary artifact such as “brociolone” translates as a stuffed and rolled veal breast loaded with seasoned bread crumbs and drenched in tomato sauce. Cream sauces cascade from the house specialties, the most formidable of which is a slab of fried eggplant covered with shrimp, crab meat and crawfish. Don’t expect an elaborate wine list. Desserts are pretty run-of-the-mill, but Angelo Brocato's Ice Cream & Confectionery is right next door.
