    Run! Run away!! Save your intestines. I've never had a good meal at Venezia. I doubt it's improved any from the last time I was there.

      I use to really like Venezias until about 4 years ago when it became very inconsistent. The last time I went was about 1 1/2 yrs ago when evidently, they decided to become a more "hip" restaurant by using square and rectangular plates, decreasing portion size by 1/2 and raising prices by 25-30%. They oversauced my entree after I had asked that a very light amount of sauce be used. They did just the opposite. There was so much sauce on my plate that you couldn't see what was under it. I asked the waitress to take it back. She had an attitude and when she brought it back to me, all they had done was to have scraped the sauce off. It looked as if the same cheese had been pieced back together on the chicken, and there were remnants of the sauce all over the plate from where it had been. It certainly didn't look appetizing. I sent it back again and asked that a fresh one be made. We haven't been back since. Siros at Marina Bay might be a better idea for you.
