For over 43 years, The Venetian has drawn diners who prefer the very best in Italian cuisine. It is owned and operated by the DiLullo family, Michael, Fiorita and their daughter, Marilena.
Michael comes from Abruzzi, Italy, where he developed his love of the hospitality industry. He honed his talents at some of Rome's finest restaurants and hotels until immigrating to New York City in 1960. His talents were further embellished there by working at The Colony, The Brussels and El Morocco, all world-renowned for their exquisite cuisine and service.
Fiorita joined him in New York, and in 1970, they came to Torrington. The Venetian was opened on July 15th of that year by Michael, Fiorita, Michael's brother-in-law, Joseph, and his wife, Maria. Michael and Fiorita have operated it since 1990, with Fiorita as chef, and were joined by Marilena in 1996.
Marilena's talents are a combination of her mother's taste and cooking flair and her father's warmth and careful oversight of the customers. As a family, along with their loyal waitstaff, they are the perfect ingredients to a most satisfying dining experience.
