While trying to decide where to eat an early dinner we saw the Venetian and decided to stop in. The dining area is very quaint and comfortable. They have a nice menu, decent beer and wine selection. I had the spaghetti and meat balls which were very good. My wife had the tomato basil grilled cheese sandwich and thought it... More

This is our "go to" place in Hillsboro for lunch or dinner. The food is always good along with attentive service. The restaurant is housed in a building that used to be a movie theater in the early years of the town of Hillsboro. So, lots of history! There is also a current theater with occasional live shows. In the... More

Great little historic restaurant/theater ... quality live music, great atmosphere, and good eats make this a no brainer if you're looking to try out a new place !!! I've never seen them, but I've heard nothing but rave reviews about the local theater troupe that performs there, too!!

This restaurant is loaded with ambience and friendly, attentive staff. Featuring foods with an Italian flavor, their menu offers enough variation to please everyone. I have two nit picky negatives: They tend to put too much sauce on their dishes. The daily soup doesn't have a lot of variation as they seem to have mushroom soup most of the time.... More

Right downtown is this jewel of a place on Main Street. Super for people watching, good food and at the entrance of a restored theater. What more do you want?

Low-key vibe and always reliably delicious food. They have the best Hungarian Mushroom Soup ever, great dinner specials (lots of salmon dishes), gluen-free options, and amazing rolls. The Hefeweissen draft beer is too fizzy--too much air that dilutes the flavor. Otherwise, friendly service and always glad I've been there.

The upstairs Piazza Room was the perfect location for an after work gathering (~60 in our party). The buffet dinner prepared by the Venetian's kitchen was delicious and the wait staff and owners took care of us perfectly. A fun evening was had by all.

The Venetian itself sits within one of the Hillsboro landmarks... the Theater! They serve drinks with spirit to them... Meals that match... and the rumor that an actual Spirit resides within. The Venetian has been the the 'go-to' dining place for Birthdays, Anniversary and every other family event for years. Staff is excellent! Top that off with the dining entertainment... More

The food is wonderful and tasty, and not over priced. We have always had good service, and enjoy a good Italian Restaurant, and this place is lovely and warm.
