Venezia Exeter is located on Exeter's beautiful Quayside.


Best Italian Restaurant in the South West on Restaurant Guru.

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 and 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 and other items.

As the popularity and demand increased we slowly started adding up other items, such as daily specials, pastas, seafood and 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.
