ABOUT Cafe Venezia

After achieving a huge success at Cafe Renaissance on Kings Highway, Shaul and Tikvah Ashkenazi wanted to let the people who work, live and shop near Coney Island Avenue and Avenue J enjoy their fantastic cuisine as well. They brought Cartier Replica Watches back an old friend to help them to do just that. Chef Gino, one of the finest Italian chefs in Brooklyn, is back home. But you might not recognize him. 

To the old timers of Cafe Renaissance, who remember Gino, he is looking remarkably well after shedding over 100 pounds. He must be eating healthy. And that’s nice to know about your chef, because Gino only cooks with the finest and healthiest ingredients. Yes, he’s back in the kitchen, hard at work, creating new items for the new restaurant. For instance, the Stacked Eggplant Florentine, which is an eggplant tower layered with ricotta, parmesan, baby spinach, mozzarella, and marinara sauce. Also, the Venezia Sole is a wonderful baked breaded fillet of sole with lemon juice.

And one must not forget their authentic brick oven pizzas like the Pizza a la Roma. Gino and the restaurant were written up in The Jewish Week Magazine as offering one of the best kosher pizzas in town. The menu also features a variety of terrific pasta and fish dishes that will thrill you, as well as many sushi favorites like the Angel Roll. One thing that separates Cafe Venezia from almost all other Brooklyn restaurants is their 2nd floor private room. Very often after patrons eat at their restaurants, Shaul and Tikvah are asked to cater their affairs. And while some can be accommodated in the restaurant, there are always times when a larger room or a more elegant affair is needed. Cafe Venezia has an extremely spacious and elegant 2nd floor that can accommodate up to 120 people. There are not many places in Brooklyn that have the space, decor and ability to satisfy your one-of-a-kind Sheva Brachot, Birthday parties or business conferences. They are, indeed, the ideal place for your special occasion.

Mezinke Sheva brachos - 06/11/15

Preparing for a family sheva brachos I didnt know what to expect. I was skeptical thinking about the amount and variety and our budget ,what would my family say and think. Boy was I wrong. As we were greeted into a spacious space beautifully decorated and exquisitely set. Coffe and tea waiting enough for all without having to wait for a waiter etc. On the table 3 choices of salads drinks and just a very heimishe feeling. From then on food just kept coming out with very friendly and professional waiters. The staff was great and accommodating, they even lowered the music when it came time for the gevaldike divrei Torah that was given followed by the showering of brachos to the beaming chosson and kallah. Dessert was mouthwatering and they didn't bother us when we stayed a tad late. It was a great simcha and I'd like to thank cafe Venezia. Mazal tov on your simcha

Bracha komarov- 11/01/14
Back in June, my high school class celebrated our 15th year reunion. While I originally suggested a different restaurant, one classmate recommended Cafe Venezia -- and the other agreed -- and for good reason! I don't think I have been there before and now I know to return there when I want elegant dining! It is located right in my neighborhood -- a definite plus! The staff was very accommodating and gave us a nice table with room for us all (plus my friend's baby carriage). The staff was friendly and food was served in good timing. I had a salad (I think it was the Arugula salad) and it tasted fresh and tasty!

New York is known to be home of exquisite dining. Whether your'e in the mood for deli on the lower east side, or Pasta in Little Italy, your taste buds will always be satisfied. For years I've tasted and enjoyed New York's many restaurants, and it is quite a flavorful experience.This past week I was lucky enough to dine at Cafe Venezia, on Coney Island Ave., right in the heart of Flatbush. I was greeted so warmly by the staff. I felt great vibes immediately. The decor is exquisite and the venue is clean. when it was time to order, it took me a while to decide what to order off the elaborate menu, but I decided on a Haloumi salad, my favorite! IT WAS SPECTACULAR; the fried Haloumi cheese was piping hot and had an awesome contrasting flavor with the rest of the salad. All ingredients tasted so fresh and were so colorful. Although I would like to keep Cafe Venezia to myself , I do not think that would be fair. Now you know my secret!

Amazing authentic flavors! The flavors of the Penne A La Toscana - Penne with shallots, red and yellow peppers, capers, black olives & cherry tomatoes mixed in light olive oil was such an experience that I really felt like I was in Italy--seriously. I'm not sure what type of herbs were used, but whatever they were... they transcended my expectations --and kosher too! This is the best kosher restaurant I've ever experienced.

yitzy, i guess you ate something that just didn't agree with you. sat. nites are one of our busiest nites of the week from opening to closing. we hadn't had one phone call or complaint by any other patron. if something wasn't good we would have been swarmed with calls.

David Bravo- 12/10/07
Contrary to a previously stated comment stated by Mr. Cohen, the prices for great kosher food are very reasonbly cheap. I'm only a gentile but the best authentic italian food is found at Cafe Venezia. The service was amazing and worth more than the 16% that they charge, so i gave my waiter extra than 16%.

Come On, I agree i think this post was made from a family member or the owner, what in the world would a gentile be looking at great kosher restaurants for? I still stick behind my comment - stay away from the pizza! you want authentic italian pizza i'm yet to find one - but in italy on my visits theres a fantastic dairy restaurant called Yatvata - now they know what there doing with pizza!!! you want to talk pasta - real italians like there pasta al dente not like cafe venzia makes it. but all in all i have to say the truth i'm a meat guy and if i have an option for meat or dairy at these prices im going meat

oh p.s. if you do decide dairy i love T42, Orchedia, and Back to Nature and of Course Va Benne in the city besides that go meat!
