Quaint Italian restaurant and wood fired pizza shop. The food was excellent. We were seated at a four top at the front window and watched the world go by outside
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.
We absolutely love Veneto! Great place to eat, food is great and service is fabulous!
We ate outside, so noise level was mostly due to traffic not the restaurant.
Fabulous food and service
Excellent establishment with great food and service.
Great food and atmosphere... just seemed like the $$ was a little high. Overall positive.
The best. Always a great, homemade meal with super service!
Miranda our server (5 people) was outstanding. Very attentive, helped with choices, checked us regularly. I had the veggie cauliflower salad, others wedge salad, Rissoto and 2 pizzas. We were finished with plenty of time to get to Kodak hall for the Rpo concert.
The staff, service and entrees were exceptional. Our family ordered the ribeye, fettuccine rustico and gnocchi with creamy pesto sauce with steak. Everything was amazing. We will definitely be returning.
Alia was an amazing server. Isiah was very welcoming. Thanks for a great anniversary dinner.
For years Veneto was on my "go to" list. The last few years it fell off for no reason. Went back last night and will be back often. Everything was fantastic. Food, service, ambiance. It was so nice to be a part of a busy restaurant with so much energy going on.
Great food, in a nice space. We both had the rib-eye special, I intend to try one of the pizzas next time. It was definitely loud but not excessively so. Our server was polite, attentive and quick. Will definitely return.
Dinners were great. Staff was amazing and accommodating. I had to change our reservations at the last minute and they were able to fit us in. The one thing that was difficult was the noise level. Oh well, when it's that crowded I guess you should expect that.
We sat outside due to COVID. Our waiter, despite having indoor and outdoor tables, was attentive and super pleasant. Food was really excellent-I’ve never had such a delicious wood-fired pizza. Their crust is amazing-yeasty, salty and slightly chewy in a fabulous way. Excellent quality toppings. We also had the wedge salad(splint one) and the yummy pasta rustica.
East Ave is a bit busy and occasionally noisy but an interesting spot to watch the world go by on a early fall evening.
Service and food were both excellent! Couldn’t have asked for a better night.
We arrived at 5:30 with a reservation. We ordered an appetizer right away which came in a timely fashion. We ordered our entrees when the server brought the appetizer.
We were not served our entrees until 6:50, after asking 3 times what the hold up was with the food, and told all three times “it will be just a minute”. What we are assuming was a manager came over and said sometimes a “special” takes longer. We let her know we had theater tickets for a performance that begins at 7:30. We then asked for “to go” boxes and the check, inhaled a few bites of our dinner and rushed out to get to the show. We left without a word from any of the staff!!! Not even a simple apology!!! We also watched as three other tables were seated, served and left before we got our dinners!!
The service was outstanding and the food is top notch. Highly recommend!
Outstanding place to have an authentic Italian Dinner in Rochester.
The greens with sausage are the best in the city. Don’t miss them.
Still one of my favorite restaurants of all time!
Always a delicious meal with wonderful service. We arrived early for our reservation but they were able to accommodate us with no issue!
We're at Veneto at least once a week. The food and service are always excellent. Staff is both friendly and professional.
Very warm and loud but the food and service was Excellent!!
Great food and service! Nice variety and all is great!
We have been here before and my gf picked it for her birthday dinner. We all got different foods in the group and everyone was happy with their selection. I got the steak which was cooked to a perfect medium. The homemade white sangria was very enjoyable
yum - yum - yum!!! Had a most enjoyable evening. Friendly and efficient host - very good waitress. Thank you.
Food was delicious and our server was great, very attentive and gave great recommendations.
I have never had a bad meal at Veneto’s. It is our go to place to eat. The food is exceptional, the staff professional and friendly and very helpful. Since Covid, it has been remodeled and looks great. It was good to see it so busy when we were there…a sign of a good restaurant, great servers, and great food. They also can accommodate for gluten free….necessary for some of our family members.
We went for my mother-in-law’s 85 birthday! She loved it - our waiter was very attentive and put up with all of our requests! Food was very good, especially the dessert!
Three different pizza types, all were delicious and had quality ingredients, including the sauce. Service was excellent with a nice personal touch. Ambience is quiet and low-key with a well-decorated interior.
Always excellent food, excellent service!
That's why it's our favorite!
Tables were so close together, I couldn’t pull chair out without hitting diner at next tables chair
We were visiting Rochester and came to Veneto Wood Fired Pizza and Pasta because it was conveniently located near our hotel. We are so glad we did as our meal was fantastic, the service and atmosphere was excellent too. I would highly recommend Veneto to anyone looking for a great place to dine.
Friendly stall, great food. All great. Would recommend and visit again.
Amazing as usual! I won’t ever stop coming back… unless of course I get banned from too much laughing. 😁
Great food and service! James, our server, even remembered the wine we had last time we were in! Obviously, we’ll be going back!
We are never disappointed coming to Veneto's. It's our favorite "downtown" dining experience that feels special every time we have dinner there. The food is so incredibly good, the wait staff are all friendly and happy to be of service. And we love the ambiance - it's just alive with people have a great time. Go! You'll See!!
Very good Italian food in a casual, relaxed atmosphere.
The pasta special was unusual and creative and absolutely delicious. We chatted with several staff and everyone was relaxed, friendly and made us want to go back.
