Good for a quieter, conversational atmosphere. Excellent food - the gnocchi was tremendous!
Great wine !
Lovely food wine and service, and the ambiance
Great romantic date place. True candlelight dinning.
Impeccable food and service. A great restaurant for a romantic meal. Gratzi!
Great little gem in Venice, amazing food and great service! Place is busy and its good to make a reservation ahead. One of the best I have had as far as italian food. My favorite pumpkin ravioli yam!!!
Excellent food, beautiful restaurant. Via Veneto can be a special event destination, or also a perfect spot for a cozy dinner for 2.
Love Via Veneto for its design - great crystal chandeliers and candlelight - a welcome, different feel for LA. The food is very good. But don’t go on a Saturday night. The service can be dreadful. And tables are so close together, that you have to want to make friends with the folks next door. We did and even shared wine. It took us over an hour to get our entree - and when I asked the waiter, he shrugged and said it was very busy in the kitchen. No excuse. They have been around a long time, are busy every weekend (if not always) and know how to run a kitchen correctly. Either stop overbooking to where the kitchen is so slammed or apologize better to guests or offer something to compensate. It’s a great place with some delicious food, but every guest wants to feel cared for - part of the dining experience at this price point.
Via Veneto is the kind of white tablecloth, candles on the table restaurant that, one would think, attracts a crowd with a sense of propriety. The descriptions online all say "dressy." It's not.
Granted, it's been around longer than the Silicon Beach crowd which can spend $150 per person and not notice it. Yet it would be nice if they spent some of that money on attire.
Why mention this before the food? Because my enjoyment of a meal involves decor, noise level, sight lines -- not just what's on the plate. So when I'm... dressy... and everyone around me is in t-shirts, torn jeans, and baseball caps (worn throughout the meal), I'm distracted. I start to wonder whether the other patrons are mutants or whether they know they look no different than the homeless people along Main Street.
Oh, don't try to check the menu on their website. It goes through a twelve-step program of getting ever-narrower and then vanishes completely.
Now... the food on that menu. I wish it justified its price. The zucchini flowers had sufficient piquancy, but the prosciutto with grape tomatoes and bufala (which was switched to mascarpone) lacked any perceptible taste. The blandness of the cheese eliminated the flavor of the ham and tomatoes.
The lamb chops were cooked perfectly, and the seasoning was complementary. Yet the Dover Sole was unremarkable; grilled without any distinction.
The vegetables (which are separate menu items) could have come from a steam tray in high school. The asparagus seemed devoid of seasoning, and the spinach tasted as if they found its flavor, extracted it, and threw it away.
The wine list is expansive and expensive. Even for geeks. We did find a very good Italian white which added to the taste of the food.
Dessert was a tartufo-like concoction that went well with coffee and port. The service?Perfunctory. Maybe, being "dressy," they thought we were staff. If there's a next time, we'll wear beach clothes... to look more like the other patrons.
Terrific food and service. Thank you. Excellent server from Milan.
Excellent everything. Authentic Italian.
Still a winner every time I go. Eye rolling good. Osso Bucco was excellent, carbonara can't be beat. Best italian food I know of and its an hour drive for me but we find a way to get there once a month.
Beautiful room, great food.
Had a great time with my wife. We loved the food!
You get what you pay for at Via Veneto. Great food service and ambience. A tad expensive but very romantic and fun.
The place is beautiful, food very good but a bit pricey for what it is and the portions.
It was too bad the owner had an attitude when we didn’t all order appetizers.( we had some beforehand and were not hungry enough!)
Amazing from start to finish. NYE meal featuring white truffle. Trust me...make the splurge.
Beautiful spot with great service and average food.
