The sign outside says "Pizza Pie" but Venezia does so much more than that. It is a quality restaurant serving great Italian and local fare. On a recent visit, my wife and I ordered redfish, me blackened, her in lemon-caper sauce. Both were fresh, very...More

The food is always yummy. The service great and a fun atmosphere. We went to celebrate my birthday and it met my expectations! Food is abundant so I had left overs for the kids.
