The Venetian Restaurant
Very Nice Restaurant....we will be back, the food was wonderful and our Waitress is very nice as well.
Florentine pizza was amazing. Fettuccini alfredo was a little bland and a little undercooked in my opinion. Restaurant is noisy and somewhat crowded as far as the seating goes. Service was good. Prices are a little steep but decent for what we got. I would go back, lots I want to try there!
We love the Venetian and have been dining there for over 25 years. The food is delicious - best pizza in San Diego! Service was excellent on a very busy Saturday evening. The owner even helped seat us and kept a close eye on all tables to assure excellent service for all customers. We live 35 minutes away but always look forward to a special fabulous Italian dinner at the Venetian! 😊
At the Venetian you expect to have good service and good food and they always provide that.
Probably my favorite Italian Restaurant in San Diego where i've lived for over 50 years. Good people and good food is the culture of the place.
I love the Venetian's pizza - have always down take for pizza. Decided to take some friend there and have dinner. The service was great. I had veal marsala, it surprised me on how bland it was. It seemed, and everyone at the table had a taste and agreed, that there it didn't have marsala in it. I was dissappointed but the others enjoyed their food. Not sure I'll go for dinner again but I still love the pizza, though it has gotten a bit expensive.
We always have a delicious meal and a great dining experience when we eat here. We often start with the fried calamari rings, which are so crispy and tender, then a salad and entrée. Our favorite dishes are...all of them! I know you will not be disappointed if you dine here.
The Venetian is nothing like it was 5 years ago. The pasta was cold, to which they added hot Alfredo sauce. The chicken parm was decent but came with cold pasta that they put like warm sauce on.
The bill was $93 for 2 people. We had 2 entrees, 2 cocktails, and shared a salad. This was in no way a $100 dinner.
Typically when we have dinner at The Venetian it can be very noisy with everyone talking loudly. But this last visit time, we were pleasantly surprised that we were able to talk and actually hear each other. Although I have to say that the restaurant was not as full of people as a normal Saturday night. I guess they don't have any acoustics in the restaurant.
But, because of the food and great service, we try to go back about one a month.
Great food and great service. One of the best experiences my family and I have had in a long time.
Venetian never disappoints ! Delicious food, great service, very reasonably priced. A perfect couples restaurant or family restaurant!
A very good place for us to meet our grandsons. We all like the food and it's very comfortable.
My favorite neighborhood restaurant serving my absolute favorite pizza. It just feels like home. Great staff, inviting ambience, terrific food.
The food and service were EXCELLENT despite it being a very busy night.
Another outstanding meal! Service was excellent as always and we took home food as always!
Food was fabulous and everyone very friendly - made for a very nice evening!
Food was excellent. The scallops are made to perfection! The bread and cedar salad was great as well. I would highly recommend this establishment.
Our server was excellent. The food was delicious and the environment was wonderful.
Great neighborhood spot, lively atmosphere. Delicious scallops appetizer. Portions are big!
Awesome, hidden gem in Point Loma. Very good Italian dishes and maybe the best caesar salad I have ever had.
The veal piccata was breaded and fried, so not my preference for preparation. But, the flavors were great and the portion was large. Service was great. My husband enjoyed his penne bolognese.
Always a go to for Family Italian food. Service is great as is the food. It can get a bit noisy when the restaurant is full, but otherwise I nightly recommend it.
The restaurant is incredible. Never disappoints. The Server Janine Foy is outstanding. Her knowledge, humor and attentive attitude was out of this world. The veal picatta gives your palate life. Wonderful on every level.
Our go to Italian for 15 years. Smiling faces, attention to detail, family friendly, full bar. we love it!
The people who own/manage this restaurant are very nice! We will eat here again next time we visit OB!
Our server Quinlan was phenomenal. He made us feel welcome and at home, in addition to providing well-described recommendations and wine pairings. I plan to return often due to the amazing service and equally amazing food! One of the best italian restaurants in San Diego for sure :)
We always look forward to dining at our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Four of us ordered pasta: seafood, clams, clams & scallops, and spaghetti w/ meatballs. One had salad w/ grilled shrimps. It's nice to have the option of white or red sauce. Awesome experience as usual.
A note about the noise:
I just wish people who bring their toddlers realize that other diners don't want to have to put up w/ their screaming kids.
Great food and service. Large portions !
Nice place. We like to come here to celebrate birthdays, etc.
Great Italian food, great service, and reasonable price.
Always delicious, though a little pricey. Makes for a nice family out. Busy as always -- because it's so good. But got seated right away on Saturday night with Open Table booking.
Thanks for reserving us a great place to visit over dinner, with friends.
VENETIAN IS ONE OF OUR FAVORITE RESTAURANTS. CAN'T BEAT THE FOOD AND FRIENDLY SERVICE.
Lots of great energy. Popular. Great food.
A great place to celebrate a special event or to just share a pizza.
Excellent restaurant. We’re never worried when taking people over. We know they will have a great experience and last week was not different. Our friends really enjoyed it. Thanks Venetian Staff.
We had a very good experience this time, waitress was very attentive, and our dishes were cleaned up in do time and our take home bag was placed on our table with a smile. The pesto was a bit salty but otherwise dinner was delicious. Also the Tiramisu was outstanding. Everyone in our party was very happy with their dinner and service. Bread was delivered on time and water glasses were refilled as needed. Great job! Good to have things back to normal. ☺️ Thank you.
Our family loves the Venetian! It's our go-to for Italian - and we are from Chicago so we recognize a great plate of pasta when we find one.
Great food and ambiance. Great for all.
This place is great! The ambiance is very relaxing and enjoyable. The food is absolutely amazing, and if you can somehow eat through your huge plate of food, you’ll want to check out the desserts as they are also incredible. I highly recommend this place and would not hesitate to send any family member or friend to this location for any occasion.
Love it here; one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego; reminds me of fabulous Italian family restaurants back East, where I lived until 7 years ago,
Love this place for 14 years now. Great food, god service.
