It’s Impossible Not To Love This Boston Restaurant Right On The River

The restaurant reviewers at Open Table selected only one Boston-area eatery to include on its “100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America” list for 2017, and you’ve probably never even heard of it! That’s because Venezia is something of a hidden gem, tucked away in Dorchester. Most people zip (okay, crawl) by it as they travel along I-93 to or from Boston, unaware that they’re missing out on an Italian eatery with unbeatable river views.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.

We agree with Open Table’s assessment: this serene spot is definitely one of the most scenic restaurants in Boston! Have you dined here? Share your experiences and favorite dishes in the comments below.
