Restaurant description

Bringing a vibrant slice of the Mediterranean to the Exeter quayside, Venezia Exeter is a wonderful fusion of international flavours. There is al fresco seating with stunning river views, live salsa and jazz events, and even outdoor shisha smoking at the connected Cafe Baba.

Cuisines from across Europe are covered on the Venezia Exeter menu. There is a great selection of freshly made pizzas, with the Italian flavours continuing on the pasta menu. A selection of meatballs from around the world includes Bombay kofta, and a Mexican recipe made with chipotle and coriander. Fresh seafood treats can be found with dishes like linguine with king prawns, clams and mussels, while the grill selection includes prime steaks and burgers.

Authentic Italian gelato is a popular dessert choice at Venezia in Exeter, with exotic flavours like mango and coconut. There is also tiramisu, various cheesecakes, and a full wine list and beer selection.

Filled with international energy and offering a range of live entertainment, Venezia Exeter is a 10-minute walk from Exeter St Thomas Rail Station.

    We ate outside - good speed of service, as friendly and chatty as we wanted to. We ate two fish different dishes, both delicious. At diner's request, potatoes were included with one, at no extra cost. Two puddings - very generous portions.

    After waiting 20m for someone to come to my table, i had to go to the counter and ask for food and drinks menu although no one came to our table. I realised there was only 1 person doing both behind the counter duties as well as serving tables outside and inside a well as taking dishes out... It is unthinkable that one person could do all this work so we ended up leaving as the atmosphere was very noisy too!

    We have been regulars at Venezia for many years. The location by the river Exe is excellent especially on a warm summer evening. It is good value and the service is friendly. We tend to major on pasta and pizza. The garlic bread with cheese is also a favourite. Also great for a coffee during the day plus a walk along the canal and river. This visit was for their special Valentine's menu on 14th February which we enjoyed but was not quite up to the standard of their normal menu.

    The decor and ambience didn't appear great when we arrived - the venue could do with some titivation - but the food itself was very good and reasonably priced.

    Welcoming staff that couldn't do enough for us. A great atmosphere, the singer added the perfect accompaniment to a great meal. Reasonably priced, I would definitely go again
