For Kay Ann Kropac, Owner of Café Venice Restaurant & Wine Bar, it all began at Hellriegel’s Inn, her family’s restaurant located in Painesville Ohio. After working for Café Venice’s two previous owners she acquired the restaurant in 2006 and hasn’t looked back since. It is Kay’s involvement in the local community that allows her to grow her business and she continues to sponsor local charities and events. Kay is an active member of the Venice Main Street Association, Sarasota Originals and the local Chamber.
Homemade sauces, specialty side dishes, and delectable desserts will warm your heart and please your pallate. We offer beer and wine, and have recently expanded our wine list to include a reasonably priced Specialty Reserve list. This is something we change from time to time, as certain things become more or less available to us and we love to hear your suggestions. Look for our upcoming Wine Dinners where we feature a wine and winemaker and offer specially prepared off the menu courses which are individually matched with each wine selection of the evening.
