Definitely a change from run of the mill restaurants. From the beginning, service and attention was complete. Starting with local wines and a very tasty appetizer of lightly spiced calamari. My wife and I like to eat in stages, as they do in Italy. We…followed this with a Ceasar Salad, made at our table, we enjoyed the entertainment side of this… We have tasted Ceasars from many different restaurants but this one definitely topped them all… We followed this with lamb made to our liking, very tasty and tender…and always a clear positive attention to our needs. We enjoyed coming to this new local venue at an older Hotel in Victoria B.C. Canada, The Hotel Rialto. We’ll be back..
Asked if we wanted still or sparkling but our server failed to mention that sparkling was $8. Dishonest sales techniques. Food was sub par Venato was a way better venue
