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.

I lived in Vicenza Italy for about ten years and Veneto has done an amazing job of bringing dishes from the Veneto Region. This is true Italian Food!

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.

Ravioli was excellent. Steak entree was supposed to come with polenta and Parmesan. Neither item was on the plate. Asked the waiter about it, he said no, then came back and said yes but never brought the polenta. I would go back for a glass of wine and a pasta but not the entrees.

The bison was WAYY!!! overcooked according to me. When I asked the waiter he said "it is supposed to be WELL done, it makes it more tender". ( I have NEVER has a piece of meat cooked well done and had it be more tender) It was supposed to have a special wine sauce on it and it was nonexistent. My wife's salmon was good. and service was probably one of the best in town.

New Years Eve dinner had a traditional Venetian fish dinner with many good courses and a great wine pairing . The meal started withcaviar and bubbles that were perfectly matched and went through different type of fish including a great carpaccio to a wonderful fish pairing with a brunello if I recall. The meal was easily comparable to tasting meals in Michelin starred restaurants based on many such meals that we have had over the years.

This was my third trip to Veneto, the first was for a wine tasting, the second for International Women’s Day, and this, for a Christmas Eve dinner. We began our meal with a white wine called Pecorino from Arezzo which was very good. The antipasto we chose was the burrata e prosciutto crudo…the best prosciutto I have had outside of Italy!

My husband & I had the gnocchi sbatui di mala. The waiter described this as a heavy gnocchi due to the smoked ricotta cheese. The presentation was wonderful and through no fault of the restaurant, I might have preferred a different dish.

Dolce was the semifreddo con amaretti…. also quite wonderful.

I rated the ambiance a bit lower due to the presence of multiple ‘energetic’ small children in the restaurant at our meal time. It was very disruptive to have one screaming child, and another – literally – hanging from the curtains. One would think for a special, rather expensive, holiday dinner the parents could have gotten a sitter. Just my opinion.

Though the visit was overshadowed by the disruptive children, I would return to Veneto for future special events.

Goodness gracious this place was amazing. Every dish was cooked perfectly with subtle yet traditionally bold flavors together. I’ve never had pasta like the pasta here - al dente to a whole new level. Did I meant mention ... goodness gracious this place was amazing?! Ps wine by the glass, good but pricy.

Cibo ottimo, ho preso i ravioli con pere e formaggio poi la carne piemontese e la crema fritta come dessert
Tutto fantastico
La lista dei vini poi è lunghissima
Il cameriere molto gentile e professionale
Direi che rispecchia a pieno la cucina italiana
Non è prevista la mancia per il cameriere
Ottima esperienza che sicuramente consiglio

Having just spent a month in Italy, we were looking for a great Italian restaurant, this is the place!!
My wife always has her favorite dish in Florence,Italy at fantastic restaurant called La Giostra, it's a stuffed pear with cheese ravioli and Veneto has the same thing on the menu and she said it was as awesome as in Italy! Veneto also charges a copperto, very similar to Italy, meaning no tipping, of course you can tip if so desire. I highly recommend this place for special evening of fantastic Italian food. 5 star service, food and atmosphere.
