Not the most convenient location to turn into & it's in the busy shopping center with Aldi and the new Ross, so traffic is not great in this area. Gotta love Chik Fil A! Food is always great ! & for customer service... Pretty dang awesome for a fast food joint. I HATE that they're closed Sundays! But... I respect it. Doesn't mean I have to like it though. Lol
Supreme pizza was wet and soggy, but delicious. No 5 stars if you can't pick up the slice without it drooping over and spilling into your lap even with the NY fold. Avoid slices because volume is too low. Adding toppings to a stale cheese slice and warming it up is simply not acceptable except at the mall. Lack of an 8" pizza really hurts here. Nobody is happy when folks are picking off stuff they hate off a big pizza. Ptui! If there is no 8" pizza option, at least put tweezers in with the other silverware. Avoid the garlic knots, which are just greasy refrigerator biscuits. Venice uses the ubiquitous cheap and crappy processed ham/bacon/pepperoni toppings. Enough said there. Bacon is not hard to cook, and top quality cold cuts abound. Just tell the food broker "No". I say no more than three toppings, and be careful to pick ones that work together in grease/moisture to avoid the soggy mess. Venice might become the best pizzeria in the area, but they are $2-$4 overpriced. Right now, they are not producing a product worthy of premium pricing. Tremendous potential for a new pizzaria, and they seem serious about achievement. Fresh rock shrimp, stone crab claws, dry salami and some gorgonzola cheese would justify their pricing. Reviewing a new restaurant like this is kinda cold but necessary. Diners, have modest expectations and be pleasantly surprised. Four out of five stars is damn good. This might become the best pizzeria in the area. Nobody else even tries. Also, waitresses should not be janitors. Having the person who serves your food sweep up around you is not acceptable. They should be sanitary. Come on, Venice! Fern Park eaters need you! Step up! You can do it!
Go to the Tuscany place instead. Short story: horrible service. I'll give you the positive sandwhich: menu looks good, terrible lasagne, large calzone. You could probably order anything you like off of the menu in terms of Italian. When we chose this place after checking out the flier, we ordered delivery. 45 minute wait at about 7 on a Sunday, and the togo worker was very unsure about the menu. The small meat lasagna, $12 tasted like it was previously frozen, and was very watery. The meat was not tasty at all, and the noodles were not cooked all the way. The calzone we ordered was huge but the crust wasn't anything to write home about. We also got a side salad that was lacking. Overall sucky red sauce. When I called to mention the lack of quality, I was guaranteed a credit on my "account". Once we decided to give this place another chance, they were rude on the phone when trying to "look up my account". No credit and an abrasive attitude. No thank you.
Really good pizza slices, they are huge, the slices in the display are from the house 20" pie. They have 12 different slices for sale in the display case. Cheese, pepperoni, white, lasagna, chicken spinach alfredo, chicken bacon ranch, BBQ chicken, Philly steak, Hawaiian, Venice supreme, meat lovers. They also have a huge menu of Italian foods, wings, pasta, salads, sub's even burgers! Music was good classic rock, not too loud. Service was awesome and friendly. They offer free refills on fountain coke drinks and iced teas.

It can be hard to find vegetarian options at Cuban restaurants, but this place has a few different tasty choices, including spinach or pizza empanadas, vegetarian steak, vegetarian sandwiches, pasta, congri, sauteed veggies, and yellow rice (in addition to the most delicious fried yuca and tostones). It's a small family-owned business in a shopping center, and the owners are very kind and helpful. The place is quiet and casual. All in all, it is a very nice place to grab a quick lunch or get some takeout.
Just stopped today for a little Cuban "brunch" action. We had some egg and toast breakfast and a steak sandwich. Both were tasty, and the cafe con leche was great too! Owners were very nice. I get a feeling it'll be one of my regular spots.
Ok. First thing first, NEW OWNERS! I have been in and out of Rey's for some time and never impressed. It was more of necessity since the best Cuban spot in the area closes at 5. However, they were recently taken over by awesome owners who are trying their best to change the poor, over priced food experience of the previous guys. I must say, these guys now have upgraded Rey's in my book from a cost and quality perspective. Give it a try guys. You will not be disappointed.
First time at Bob Evans. We used to laugh at the name and joke that we were taking each other there for a meal, but we finally decided to give it a go. Everyone who took care of us was very friendly, and you could tell it was recently remodeled. It was fairly clean. The food was well-priced and seemed on par with Perkins. Will be back.
My wife and I have been at this restaurant several times. If nothing else they have been consistent. Consistently very, very good. Excellent coffee, quick service, great deals, large servings, excellent coffee and very clean. You can't beat their prices and oh did I tell you about their excellent coffee? We have had the same waitress who was excellent: LINDA.
Bob Evans is tasty but full of sodium and sugars. Good place to go if you don't care about health . Chicken pot pie 2600g. Sodium... 2 days worth of salt. Waiter was nice quick with food. I won't ever eat in the restaurant chain again.
