Excellent place to go to. The food, service, and over all experience was great. Our second time here and not our last. We did our anniversary dinner the 2nd time knowing it would not disappoint us. I truly recommend Venetos. This is the Westside location.

The Prime rib special was tough and over cooked. They took it off the check.

BUT, the calamari appetizer, oil/bread, and wine was amazing.

Overall, was very nice and we will return again!!!

Recommended!!!!

The outside bare parking lot in the middle of nothing does not match the warm modern inside. The waitress was professional and personable. We orders the arancini to start, it was fabulous, but my Chicken French was rubbery & my friends Gnocchis with vodka sauce were dense and not very flavorful. Might try their other location, but won’t be back here.

The Arincini were excellent. I had the Pasta peas prosciutto Alfredo it was out of this world. My husband had prime rib with a side of ricotta gnocchi. The Marinara was excellent! The dinner music was wonderful. Very gifted piano player! Service was exceptional! Very pleased and will be going back very soon!

The service was excellent. They had a special that included bottle wine, salad, entree, dessert for $65. That was a very good deal given what I thought were high prices for pasta ($16-$17). But you did get a lot of pasta-actually too much-if they cut the portions in 1/2 which would still give you a good amount they could perhaps lower their pasta prices by $3-$4 or even $5. That being said, we had a nice time and people will not be disappointed eating there.

Great spot to enjoy dinner. Very family friendly. Food was delicious. A familiar, yet unique flavoring of Italian dishes. Has an open kitchen concept. Not an overly romantic feel but recommended for family or special occasions.

We had a very nice time eating outside. We have enjoyed Veneto downtown for a lot of years, so we are very glad to have it on the west side.

The food was ok - nothing exceptional. You do not get a salad with
your entree. That is extra. The portions were a good size.

We used to go to the East Avenue location all the time so we were excited to see a location had opened on the west side since we live on the west side. It was a great experience! The food and service were excellent. Bringing our kids back soon!

Very tasty meal, in a pleasant environment. The bruschetta was delicious as a starter, and all of our mains were tasty as well. The server was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu options. The room was very quiet, right for allowing conversation.

This place is fantastic. The wood fired pizza is always great and the specialty items are remarkably delicious. I recently tried the risotto - SO GOOD!
The service is great and the manager even helped me select a wine (I am very picky)
I am excited that they opened their second location on the West Side. I will definitely be a regular.

Initial impression was , it looks a little odd.
No matching tables, my chair was old and wobbly.
The table was bare wood. No place setting or table cloth.
There for it was a bit sticky.

The rest of the tables looked old and out of place.
The lighting was also odd. None of them matched.

Now to the good part.
I had a brick oven pizza , it was outstanding.
One of the best i ever had.
My wife had a sea food dish she said was delishous.

After the dinner the waiter noticed in our reservation, it was our anniversery.
He brought each a glass of wine. Then followed with a cordial.

The food was great. The tables and chairs though should be an item that should be changed.

Went here Saturday night and they had just opened on Friday for indoor seating. Could either sit inside or outside under a tent. There were three of us and we chose inside. All of the workers had masks on and it was set up for social distancing. We had arancini for an appitizer and caesar salads (with or without anchovy). Main course was chicken parm, chicken marsala and pizza. All meals were served promptly and were great. Because they were making a fresh pot of coffee and we had to wait for it, they gave us complimentary cannolis. Really enjoyed our meal and the service. We will definitely be back. We did have reservations thru Open Table and strongly suggest making them. Don't forget to wear your mask until you are seated...stay safe!
