Veneto Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta
Proudly serving a large selection of moderately priced Italian Wines in addition to favorites from the Finger Lakes and California. Many beer choices as well including Peroni on tap.
This was our first visit and we enjoyed our dinner. We were celebrating my son’s graduation from ESM. The service was fantastic. Our server was very good and kept our glasses filled and fresh bread on the table. We all really enjoyed our meal. The only down side was that some of the items on their menu were unavailable. Apparently they were switching from their winter to their summer menu. It was disappointing to be told that what you wanted was not available. That said the food we did receive was fantastic.
We love Veneto. The menu is fantastic and the quality of the food is high. We've never been disappointed. It can get noisy! And there are times when service is a little slower than it could be. They may need to hire more staff for busy nights. But overall, it's one of our favorite spots.
Love Venito! The only downside to this visit was our waitress, who did not live up to the normal incredible service we have come to expect after many years of patronage.
Great food and excellent service from Nate! Restaurant was a little loud but that is expected on a busy night.
One of my favorite new places to go! The Shrimp dish is amazing and they have a great wine menu.
The ambiance is very comfortable and the staff is very friendly and helpful!
Small place with great ambiance. The service was great and the pizza was delicious.
Our meal was awesome! We celebrated our 15 th anniversary and everything was yummy.
We will be back!
This was my first visit,and I was very impressed. The service was excellent and the food was even better. We had the mediterranean pizza,the arancini and the grilled prosciutto. All were delicious! I will definitely make a return visit.
We celebrated my 26th birthday at Veneto. Upon arrival we needed to make last minute changes. Our server made the entire night unforgettable
Happy Birthday! Thank you for choosing Veneto to celebrate! Hope to see you again soon.
Never a bad meal here!!! Staff is always friendly.
Thanks for your repeat business. Our staff works hard.
They had in the past an Olive oil and garlic over pasta dish. It wasn't on the menu this time around but they made it for me anyway. Very classy.
Glad we were able to accommodate. Our summer menu is coming soon and will have a few new dishes.
Enjoyed their great wood-fired pizza
Thanks for stopping in - glad you enjoyed the pizza
My date's Pasta Rustico (? the one with marinara, bits of sausage, peppers) was too acidic for her taste, to the point that she couldn't eat it as a full meal, and she ordered something else.
Thanks for the feedback. Glad the staff was able to get your date another meal.
The food was delicious & well portioned. Prices were fair.
Thanks for coming in!
Have been coming here for years and has continued to be a favorite place
Thanks for being a regular!
Service was great, very professional! Best chicken Milanese I have had! And, they had fresh strawberry shortcake for dessert which was fabulous!
Glad you enjoyed! Chicken Milanese and Strawberry Shortcake are some of my family's favorites too!
It was our first time and it will not be our last, the atmosphere was very open and bright, the staff was very friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed the beet salad and the pollo pizza, both were very good.
Look forward to seeing you again!
Service was great , nice cozy atmosphere . Will be back
The food was really good, hot temperature and tasty. My friends who we invited enjoyed it. The server I think his name was Nate was excellent. It was a very busy Saturday night so it was really loud in the restaurant. I used Open table to make my reservations which worked out great. Had to wait a bit for a table to open up but the good food made up for that.
Thanks for the positive review. Hope to see you again soon. Sorry about having to wait - sometimes the tables don't turn over as quickly as we anticipate!
What a great night out! Easy to make online reservations, tasty specials, salad, bread and pizza!
Loved the cioppino.
James the server was especially grateful and attentive. We'll definitely be back and will continue to spread the word on Veneto
Foreign object in my veneto greens salad, I was still charged for it.
Food was great. Definitely go back.
James, our server, was also great.
So glad we discovered Veneto. Great balance of the intimacy of a neighborhood restaurant and a modern open concept with warm interiors. They were busy on a Friday night, but not overly so and we never felt crowded or rushed. Service was excellent, timing and pacing of the meal just right — relaxed but not much waiting. Food was also excellent, salads, pasta, and risotto dishes prepared with care in proper proportion and reasonably priced. We both agreed we could see ourselves becoming regulars at Veneto!
So happy you have discovered us and look forward to having you back!
Great prices and the food was delicious. Our waiter and hostess were friendly and chatted with us throughout our dinner but did not interrupt us at any point. I will definitely go back next time I visit Rochester.
Good food always but can be quite noisy at times. That happens everywhere!
Everyone was pleased with their meals. We'd like to see a new menu and perhaps bring back chicken French.
Veneto is one of our favorite restaurants. The food and service are exceptional.
The food was excellent and the service was good as well! Will definitely be going back
Definitly would recommend it.
Food was excellent. Such a nice warm friendly atmosphere. We will return again soon!
We went there on a Sunday before our theater show. The place was fantastic and the food was amazing. We will be back again for sure.
Nice atmosphere and the pizza was delicious. Next visit will be pasta because the selections sounded delicious, too.
My family went on a Saturday night to celebrate a birthday and were very pleased with everything. The waitress was pleasant and provided water throughout our dinner. We were given bread promptly and our food arrived quickly as well. The food was very good and the ambiance and lighting were pleasant. I can't wait to return. The calamari was fresh and very tasty and the proscuitto wraps were delicious.
Wonderful atmosphere and the wood fired pizzas were the best I had ever tasted. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find parking in the area and we went on a weeknight unless you want to pay $10 in the adjacent lot which I found excessive. My daughter did not like her pasta sauce but the cannolis were also the best I've ever tasted. The service was a bit slow but the waitress was upbeat and adorable. Would definitely go again.
Was a cold night and with reservations they tried to seat us a the first table by the door.was cold in the restaurant
Our server was distracted and did not get our complete order. He offered to rectify but were in a rush at that point and couldn’t wait for the time it would have taken
We had a reservation, although it wasn’t that busy. Nice wine list, we ordered a bottle of 2013 Nero d’Avola Terre from Sicily, which turned out to be an excellent choice. We started with soup and salad, both of which were delicious. Followed by Sunday Sauce over homemade macaroni and meatballs. It was so good, just like grandma used to make!
The service was exceptional. Our server took great care to pace our meal perfectly. Also, even though he had only been there a few months, he was very knowledgeable about the wine list and dishes.
Not sure how we missed this gem all these years (I think they have been around for 17 or 18 years), but we’ll surely be back.
We are long time customers (over 10 years) at Veneto. We understand that it has changed hands and the change is obvious. We are now retired and oftentimes wish to share a salad and entree. We came in with another couple, who we introduced to the restaurant, over the weekend. We were served our portions without individual plates and the portions were noticeably smaller; there was no effort to accomodate our sharing, which was unfortunate. The noise level the evening we were in made it impossible to talk with our guests across the table. We were seated in the window area, which we love, and a large party were seated nearby and the noise was deafening. Perhaps large parties should be seated on the side or near the back where the noise will be less of a factor. We hope that the new management will take these comments to heart as the quality of the restaurant has been the reason that it has stayed in business all these years. It is one of the long standing good restaurants in the downtown. Please don't cut corners. The ambience, the music, the food and the service have long been of very high quality. Please consider this as you go forward and please return to what worked!
Food and service very good. We have been there a few times over the last year or so. Would like to see the menu change up a little
