About Venezia Exeter
From the moment you walk into Venezia you cannot fail but to be impressed by the individual Mediterranean ambience and the historical unique location situated on the famous quayside beside the beautiful river Exe.
We can proudly say that Venezia Exeter pioneered the romance that is associated with Italian cuisine in the UK. We started our journey as Bar Venezia at a time when very few people in Exeter knew the taste & authenticity of this cuisine.
Neither Farfale, Fuseli or Regatone were commonly heard of nor were they available at stores in the UK. Venezia Exeter was more like a traditional Pizza house at the beginning with a limited offering of Antipasti & other items.
As the popularity and demand increased we slowly started adding up other items, such as Daily specials, Pastas, Seafood & Meat dishes along with our existing menu. Venezia Exeter became a huge hit with locals and visitors alike. It became a preferred dining destination for people of Exeter and the surrounding area.
Food was great and service was great. Will definitely be back again! And again, and again, and again.
Perfect afternoon. Fabulous staff and delicious food. Thank you!
We were the only ones there so can’t really give much more for atmosphere.
Our drinks and food took ages to come out. The staff were rude after ignoring comments i left when booking the table and when we queried it they never came back. However, the girl in the red north face puffer jacket was so lovely and helpful when we had issues.
Pizza-Vlaki is amazing! Good to be outside but still protected from rain and cold.
Majority of the staff that were working that day were so unnecessarily rude! Things that required the most simplest explanation, was delivered with so much attitude, that’s when their eyes weren’t on the floor trying to avoid serving customers. However I must say, the young girl wearing the red and black north face puffer jacket and lovely eyelash extensions, handled everything gracefully and professionally, as you would expect a paid employee to do so.
Absolutely lovely food, brilliant service but the drinks I feel personally are overpriced for what you are given regarding spirits. Can not fault the service, atmosphere or food, only the drinks are a bit underwhelming for what you pay for a vodka coke/ etc! Food is phenomenal, can not rate enough! Will be coming again!
Lovely friendly staff, even though a few new ones. Food always good.
Excellent service and excellent food as always!!
Our food order wasn't put through so a long wait but on the upside more drinking time!
The food and the location were great but the service wasn’t great, felt like a few members of staff didn’t really know what they were doing, I had to ask for some sugar 3 times! other than that was really nice.
We booked a table for bank holiday and when we turned up there were many tables unoccupied. The menu looked good and they took our drinks order. Then after about 15 minutes of being there, they then told us it would be a 45 minute wait for food. By this point we couldn’t take back our drinks order as it had just arrived. We could clearly see there was limited kitchen staff and on a bank holiday were gobsmacked. We would expect a 45 min wait if you are a walk in but we had reserved a table and there were no more than 5 other tables waiting to order so it was hardly rammed busy. It was very disappointing!
Was a lovely atmosphere and so pleased we had heaters as it was very cold. Friendly and helpful staff. 👌
We had a really nice night. The staff were very friendly and attentive.
Arrived about 15 minutes early but able to get our table. Asked after our booked time on two occasions for a menu, but none arrived. Decided after 20 minutes beyond our booked time to leave, as at least four parties who arrived after us had received menus and in some cases drinks. Asked to speak to the person in charge about this but person made themselves unavailable. A server did offer to serve us immediately then but told the wait for food was up to 30 minutes. All such a shame as we had a wonderful wedding anniversary here last year, but on this occasion didn't seem to care regarding good professional customer service. Can't be blamed on Covid restrictions, the bad weather or numbers at the venue. A great advert in how NOT to treat customers.
Service was a little slow, took around 10 minutes before anyone even came to our table to take our order. Food came quite quickly though which redeemed things!
Lovely meal again quick service and heaters to keep us warm
Booking was easy,service was polite and kind.Food was excellent, drink was usual
Could do with a screen / side to the river side of the outdoor seating to cut out the wind a bit.
I enjoyed my visit to Venezia. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was good. It was a bit draughty sitting outside but not much can be done about that. There were heaters that could be turned on. It was just nice to be dining out again. Well done for getting the outside area up and running.
Lovely afternoon outside Venezia, though took over an hour to get menus, though the Prosecco flowed well, some staff seemed stressed, pizza better than across the water, cannot complain! Need to do something about the missing toilet door in the ladies
Great food and atmosphere, lovely attentive staff
Had a great first day back on the beers,the table was cleaned and ready for us ,the service was good, and I'd definitely rebook.
Lovely staff, always made to feel welcome. Good atmosphere.
Such a lovely day yesterday spent late afternoon through evening at Bar V lovely staff nothing too much trouble food was absolutely amazing... can’t wait for the next time! Thanks to everybody working there x
