Wood-fired pizza and steak salad- both presented nicely, and tasted great. Salad was greens not just lettuce. Our server was wonderful - friendly, attentive without being overbearing. Nice Saturday afternoon lunch.

Very busy evening, however, timing of food being served was fine. I had a Steak salad. It was good but the price seemed high for the amount of steak that was on the salad. My husband had the chicken parm and enjoyed it!

Food was delicious! I had homemade ricotta gnocchi with vodka sauce and it was amazing. Service was wonderful and they were very accommodating to my daughter's request to modify her menu choice. Would definitely recommend!

This is our 3rd visit in 3 weeks! The food is delicious and the service is outstanding. It was fun to watch the chef make pizzas and slide them into the wood fired oven.

We sat at the bar. It was really nice- lots of room, soft lighting and quiet. The food was delicious and it was great to see the same wait staff we’ve seen for years. Our waitress was perfect. Loved the wine too

Great food and service as always. Even brought complimentary cannolis out for us as it was someone’s birthday. Pizza and prosciutto wraps best in town. Entrees we’re delicious.
Service is very attentive and they go out of the way to make sure everything is perfect.

I had the chicken french, my husband had a wood fired pizza and my sister had the ravioli. It was great all around. The host was funny and entertaining and our waitress was super attentive and yet brought a great balance of checking in without being annoying. PRO TIP: There is a parking lot next door. It belongs to the church across the street. Veneto owns the spaces on the right as you pull in (up against their building). DO NOT PAY FOR PARKING. It will cost you over $10. Instead, after parking in one of the spaces on the right/against the building, walk into Veneto and ask for a parking voucher. They'll give you a free parking pass to display on your window, otherwise park on Anton.

Didn't think I could finish, the prosciutto wrapped cheese, but despite being a little salty, I finished it. My friend's mushroom pasta was good also.
