Italian
The Venetian’s award-winning Italian cuisine (including what critics call some of San Diego’s best pizza), relaxed setting and casual atmosphere have earned generations of fans since Vince Giacalone first welcomed customers in 1965. Sons Joey and Frank proudly continue their family traditions, making sausage, soups and sauces from scratch and drawing a devoted, all-ages clientele. Highlights of the menu include bruschetta, seafood pastas, chicken and veal piccata, and thick- or thin-crust pizzas with either traditional or trendy toppings. Located in Point Loma, The Venetian’s friendly service and “Cheers” style vibe make it a favorite destination for date night, happy hour, dinner with friends or family celebrations. Seating includes the lively bar and patio (great for families and larger parties); comfy booths and banquettes; and a private wine cellar that can be reserved for parties of up to 16. Dinner nightly; lunch Monday-Friday; Sunday brunch; full bar.

    Would not recommend Aglio e Olio unless you tell them to hold the marinara sauce. Veal and scallops were great but small side of pasta way overdone. We were charged for anchovies that we didn’t receive.

    The Venetian has been my go-to Pt Loma Italian restaurant for years. Even though it changed owners a couple of years ago, the food is still outstanding and the service great! The news owners have spruced up the interior with new paint and pictures which gives it a fresh new look. I would have given a 5 star review, but the prices have skyrocketed and a 5% service has been added to your bill. I will continue to visit the Venetian, however just not as often as I would like.

    Between the four us, two ordered dishes with chicken. With each dish the chicken was dry and tasteless. Unfortunate experience for our Mother’s Day celebration. I spent almost $200 without tip and will not return.

    Great time and family friendly. Calamari strips, cheese bread and traditional pizza (cheese, pepperoni and sausage) were all delicious

    I had not been to the Venetian in over 10 years! A friend of mine wanted to celebrate her birthday there and so we went! I have to tell you, it was delicious! Much better than I had remembered it being. I will definitely go back again! I had the cannelloni - fabulous! The only thing I would change would be the bread. It seemed like it was a hamburger bun turned into garlic bread.
