If this is the best Denver has to offer then it's a sad statement for how far this city still needs to progress to compete with the larger cities. As far as cuisine itself goes the restaurant is not too bad. Still nothing to write home about. The service however is where Venice really fails. Our waiter was very rude and complained about a standard 20% tip that was given to him stating oh "it's worse than I thought." Most people would of given him a 1% gratuity based upon the service he had provided to us. Westword needs to choose it's best of list with more care as Venice should be in your worst of category. As far as restaurants go, Denver is still a small cow town when compared to real restaurants like Bertrands at Mister A's in San Diego and George's at the Cove in La Jolla. Please get it right next time and remove this atrocity of a restaurant named Venice Ristorante.
