Venice Italian Steakhouse

venice-editorial-pgThe Venice Italian Steakhouse once a hidden jewel is now a major player in Northwest Indiana and the metropolitan Chicago restaurant scene. These days more and more foodies are discovering this culinary gem.     

“We are very proud of our restaurant and the fine cuisine we offer,” explains partner Sam Zivanovic, who works alongside fellow partner restaurant founder Seif ElSharif. “Our chefs are some of the finest in the Chicagoland and Northern Indiana area. “The young but well seasoned kitchen staff is up for any culinary challenge” explains Zivanovic.

Located at 275 Joliet Street or US 30 in Dyer, IN, Venice Italian Steakhouse features an abundant menu of succulent steaks, chops and fresh seafood along with a range of classic Northern Italian infused specialties. Served in elegant yet comfortable surroundings, dinner can become a truly memorable experience by enjoying one of the Steakhouse’s tableside dishes, such as Steak Diane Venice style or Banana Foster Flambé’, prepared to perfection right before your eyes.  

Executive Chef Robert Villa often tells guests that if they had enjoyed a dish in Venice, Rome, or Tuscany and they can’t find it on the menu, just provide him with the basic ingredients and he will gladly prepare it for them, Zivanovic adds “The sky is the limit at Venice!”

“I am very proud and excited to be an Executive Chef at Venice Italian Steakhouse, which I believe is the most prestigious restaurant in Northwest Indiana,” says Villa, a graduate of Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago. “I never let my guard down.”

If you are looking for something lighter, the restaurant also offers a delightful lunch menu of classic and seasonal dishes, along with a popular Express Lunch Buffet that is now served Monday through Friday 11:30am to 2:30pm.  

No matter the meal, make sure to try one of Venice Italian Steakhouse’s selections of fine wines by the glass, with over 70 wines from all over the world available, special Martinis or special tropical drinks during the hot summer days are a must. Make your experience even more special by enjoying it within the restaurant’s beautiful glass enclosed patio that opens to the skies and extends to the outdoor patio. Perfect for summertime dining; as you are serenaded by live romantic entertainment on certain nights of the week.

As the restaurant’s popularity continues to grow Zivanovic and ElSharif continue to point to their managers Kelly Pernie and Ryan Tosh, plus the talented staff as the reason for their success.  “Among all the beauty of Venice Italian Steakhouse, it is the devoted staff that we are incredibly proud of,” says ElSharif.  “From the bussers to the dish washers, servers, bartenders, and the hostesses, everyone is properly trained and knowledgeable of their surroundings and share the same mission of providing our guests with exemplary service, I have always believed that you are only as good as your last service, no matter what business you are in.”

Partner Sam Zivanovic is determined to make Venice Italian Steakhouse a destination point and to put Dyer, IN on the map for a fine restaurant, securing the place among some of the finest restaurants in the country.
