VENETO is an experience that brings to life the history, culture, and traditions of a region in Northern Italy. It"s a warm, enlightening setting that leaves bodies, minds, and spirits nourished through quality, handmade cuisine — best shared in good company, with love.

Our menu honors year-round classical favorites and seasonal specialties from the Veneto region, and our ingredients come from the finest local purveyors. But it's the experience around those elements that really sets the scene.

Being at VENETO is like being a guest in Amy & Marco's home. It's a warm, inviting environment curated with one-of-a-kind antique European furniture and accessories, from the hundreds-year old Italian sofa in the dining room to the marble in the restrooms. We want you comfortable, relaxed, and immersed in Italian culture as you ponder the menu, soak up new knowledge, and enjoy inspired conversation along the way.

Fantastic! You simply won't find a more genuine Italian dining experience in the Rockies. Wonderful execution of seasonal ingredients along with a thoughtfully curated wine list, Veneto is a must-try if visiting Salt Lake City. Bravo Marco and Amy!

Love the new menu. The maccheroncini with oxtail is so richly flavored, and salmon with cherry tomato and olive sauce were a delight. The Wagyu steak was out of this world. Best panna cotta in the states! Can't wait for the next visit!

Very welcoming staff and environment.

The food was good, but not brilliant. It lacked those little finishes that make good food great and memorable. But it has potential to be great, I think.

And I know that the Veneto is the terra firma behind Venezia, but shouldn’t there be a little seafood on a menu in a place celebrating the Veneto and (presumably) Venice? Just curious.....

The food is divine, and you are given time to enjoy it as befits its' excellence. We got there just after it opened, and few tables turned over in the course of our 2.5 hour meal. Every dish was to die for, and the wine was very, very good. It's a nice cozy space and would be perfect except as the evening wore on, and more wine was consumed, the noise level became unpleasant and dissonant with the wonderful caliber of the food. Perhaps something could be done to ameliorate this...

Salt Lake needed to have a very European food event as Veneto offers. True northern Italian cuisine and excellent wines from all over Italy and beyond. The service is extraordinary and friendly. Amy and Marco have created a very pleasurable spot to come "home" to.

This was a very fun and welcoming place to eat. The menu had some interesting items that one would think wouldn't go well with the proteins.

We had 3 in our party and ordered a lot of items to try and share. It was a blast!

Service was attentive and spot on. The only thing we wished they had were some fresh baked bread and butter with a smoked sea salt or something similar. I mentioned this to the owner's spouse, not sure it would happen but would take a perfect meal and elevate it even better.

Can't say enough about this place and glad we got reservations cause this place fills up quickly.

For sure will be back.

What a wonderful, special place! Was traveling through Salt Lake and was looking for great Italian. It’s a quaint little restaurant and appears to be a small home converted into a restaurant. We were blessed to be given the owners table (we know that because Marco the owner delivered and poured our wine and told us as much)! Fantastic food, ambiance, and service! 5 stars for sure!!!

The atmosphere to Venetian is terrific. Small and intimate and the staff is extremely attentive. We did the menu special of a four course dinner and each choose different items so we could experience the various tastes. The stuffed tomato and mushroom soup were excellent and the risotto really good. The Milk Fish was a little bland and had bones in it which I wish I had been told. The chicken dish was amazing. Definitely worth the visit but save for a special evening. Our bill was well over $200 which included only two glasses of Prosecco.

Veneto is always a great experience. We had one of the gnocchi specials. The pasta was perfectly cooked in a tomato/basil sauce. The second dish was the pasta with duck ragú. This is one of my favorite dishes at Veneto. The third dish was a meat dish and the filet was perfect. It was a rare center cooked in a delightful wine reduction. We brought a bottle of Silver Oak Cabernet for the occasion. I must say that Veneto has a singularly incredible wine list and their sommelier will never steer you wrong. Bravo, Veneto.

Amazing little place with great ambiance. They were behind on our reservation and treated us like royalty because they felt so bad. It wasn’t even their fault, just diners who overstayed. The gnocchi is life changing and our server Claudio was hilarious and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

The food is dreadful. Gnocchi ( translation “little pillow” ) ended up being like 2 large empanadas. The rest of our meal was barely passable. I do not have a problem spending $285 for dinner and 1 bottle of good wine but this was not good a good meal.
We filled out the small comment sheet at the end of our meal answering honestly about our experience. 3 days later we get an email for a trip to Italy but not addressing our concerns about their food.
I would not recommend it.
Perhaps the chef was off that night and we had some I experienced cooks preparing the food.

Veneto is such a nice addition to Salt Lake's dining arena. The food offerings changes each month so repeat dining doesn't wear on your adventuresome palette. Many of the wines are not available at the state stores, so further adventure and wine knowledge can be gained with each meal. Thank you Amy and Marco for choosing Salt Lake for your restaurant.

The front desk people were very nice and the ambiance was nice and quaint like a good locals restaurant should be. The waiter was hard to understand and seemed nervous to talk to us. The food was at best average. Maybe that is to help bring out the wine flavors but it left us wondering why they charge so much for below average food.

We've been to Veneto twice, and the food is always excellent. This visit, however, was experience was hampered by astonishingly poor service. We were asked to make wine decisions before we had even seen a food menu, we were served our wine and our first course didn't arrive for at least 45 minutes. In the meanwhile, a server slapped a basket of bread on the table with no plates or any olive oil or butter to go with it. Our second course was served at least 45 minutes after our first plate was taken away, making the whole process very drawn out. I asked for coffee, and had to flag down a waiter to get cream to go with it. We really do enjoy the food at Veneto, but will think twice about returning after our last experience.
