We enjoyed a fabulous dinner celebrating my husband’s birthday. The music entertainment was really great. Our server, Madi, was great as was the bartender, Dylan. We love their offering of dinner specials.

Food and service were excellent. Small but very nice bar. It is very nice to have music however for the first 1/2 we were there is was a bit too loud. During our meal the music level was fine. I would definitely dine here again.

This last visit there was for a business lunch and as usual they do not disappoint. Food is always delicious, service was on point .. just enough attention without hovering. This is a great find on the west side and a welcomed treat on Buffalo Road!

Wood fired pizza was great! Other dishes being served looked appetizing. Resturant was very busy and lead time (walk in) reservation time to table was 30-min. Getting drinks at bar while waiting took 15-20 min. Waitress forgot to bring bread (had to ask) and overall was unattentive & had to get another waitresses attention for a few things like bread and leftover pizza box to take home.

Great pizza and salads. Nice outdoor seating.

Rude hostess that did eventually apologize. We booked online. We called after making the reservations for outdoor seating the day before and were told no problem. When we arrived the hostess told us unfortunately they could not accommodate us as they were expecting 3 bigger parties (all tables were empty at this point). we requested to see a manager and were eventually ‘allowed’ to dine with our meager party of 4. She became rude and then stormed us to the table. Later after a party no showed she apologized to us appropriately. However our salads came out after the pizza despite us requesting the salads first and one of the orders didn’t come through. She then mixed up the two credit cards we provided her with.

It was our first time at this location and will not be our last!! The service was outstanding! Our server was warm and welcoming, alert to our needs, had a great sense of humor and personality galore. She, plus the excellent food, is the reason we’ll be returning often. Plus they had a piano player and vocalist! Great experience! Acoustics are a bit loud, but then we’re old! Also, love that they take reservations so no waiting.

Great atmosphere with a partially open view of the coking area; outstanding food with many, many more options than just brick oven pizza - but the pizza is really good! Plentiful portions. Attentive staff. Surprised with live music on a Saturday evening.
Will definitely be returning soon. Excellent value.

Tried this restaurant last night for the first time. What a delightful surprise! The service was friendly and attentive, menu had a lot of interesting choices along with some nightly specials, the drinks and the food were outstanding. We didn't realize there would be live music, but the combo playing last night was superb. We didn't want to leave! Happily there will be live music there on Wednesdays and on weekends. We can't wait to come back! So great to have a wonderful place on the west side.

The food was very good once we got it, but it took a very long time before we were served. My Chicken Marsala needed more flavor but everyone else said their food was very good. My glass of red wine, the Primitivo, was ample and served at the right temperature, which not many restaurants do correctly. We were sitting right by the musicians, which made conversation difficult, so we left to have after dinner drinks elsewhere; but we had a good time overall.

First time at the Gates location. Definitely not the ambiance of East Ave. The front entrance and outside is really sorely lacking. Front door and entrance is not welcoming. I had the chicken bruschetta pizza. It was mediocre. Thin crust was good, but the chicken was dry and tastes like it might have been reheated in the microwave. The pizza itself, had little flavor. My friend had the pasta special and she said it was delicious. They were out of sparkling water, and no club soda is not the same. The service was fantastic. I was overall disappointed, and will not be returning to the Gates location.

My wife and I went to Veneto's on the westside for the first time this evening. I had the chicken riggies and it was FANTASTIC! Portions were huge, the wait staff was excellent, and prices quite modest. We also enjoyed the live music as well. We'll be back again soon.
