Pesto sauce, topped with chicken, spinach, roasted red peppers, mozzarella, and goat cheese
Toasted Italian bread with basil infused oil, diced tomatoes, mozzarella and finished with fresh basil pesto
Sunday Sauce at Veneto has become a regular high note for us nearly weekly. The Veneto recipe is simply superb. And the meatballs are to die for.
The ambiance and service at Veneto are always top notch. We feel welcomed and deeply appreciated.
3 of us came from hours away to visit our girls at college and went to Veneto's for dinner. They accommodated all 7 of us and even let us be seated early since we had nothing else to do to kill time. Food was amazing - service was quick and pleasant and next time I am back up there, I will definitely visit again.
First visit, server was knowledgeable and very friendly. Salads and pizzas were delicious! Ambience is very welcoming. Definitely will return. Very enjoyable
The food was excellent. I love the sauce on the Margherita pizza and our server, Aaliyah was awesome! Love Veneto!
Arancini was amazing! Also enjoyed the margherita pizza.
Every employee was courteous and respectful. Made it a very comfortable night talking with everybody that was involved with Veneto. Can’t wait to go back and enjoy sitting at the bar and watching the cooks do their thing !!
Veneto has consistently great food and service. It’s a great little spot downtown.
Arancini's are a must!
We would highly recommend Veneto Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta. We ate outdoors so there was some noise from cars and motorcycles passing by, but other than that our dining experience was excellent. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and very professional. Our waitress made a meal suggestion and we thoroughly enjoyed her choice. If we lived nearby, we would definitely make this restaurant one of our "go to" places!
The comprehensive yet brief menu is just right, featuring pasta, pizza, and salads with a small variety of entrees - great choices but not overwhelming. A clearly experienced server offered just the right amount of attention, and didn't hesitate to entertain my request to modify a certain pizza with a flavored olive oil base vs pesto.
My husband had a shrimp and scallop pasta meal and he said it was much too peppery. The other three of us had meals that were great
The food was very good. This restaurant has a great vibe and is one of Rochester’s stable’s. Good for a date night or business meeting
Excellent Italian restaurant not far from Neighborhood of the Arts. Recommended after visiting MAG and/or George Eastman museum.
Veneto's was absolutely amazing. The best date I've ever been on. We got the bruschetta and Pollo pizza with a Finger Lakes reisling and it was perfect. Would be regulars if we lived in the area!
The food at Venetto is always amazing. Our server was great and gave us plenty of time as we were in no rush to eat. We were enjoying the beautiful weather.
The food was great and the service was fantastic.
Great food and service. Our server Aleah (?) Was excellent. Thanks! Vince
Had a delicious meal while visiting Rochester dropping my son off @ RIT . Ambiance , service and Safety protocols were all great. The only issue I had was a $25 parking ticket from the lot next to the restaurant. Who charges that on a Saturday night. Not very friendly for restaurant trying to survive during COVID .
Great food, great service, we sat at the bar and couldn't have asked for more the food came out quick. We had key lime pie for dessert and it was exceptionally good maybe one of the best I've ever had! Would 100% go again
The food was delicious and the bread I believe is made in house. It arrived hot with a very crispy crust and a soft, chewy center. The entrees arrived fairly quickly. The portions are large. We were able to get 2 meals out of both. I wish we had room to try the dessert. Maybe next time because we will definitely be going back.
Veneto was fantastic. The pasta was authentic Italian and the pizza was incredible. All around amazing experience. Our service was top notch!
Portions very small nothing to write home about service was kind of slow for the amount of people
One of the best Italian restaurants in Rochester, seriously! The atmosphere was so cute and our waitress was SO nice. She labeled all of our left-over boxes. I wish I remembered her name because she was just so sweet. They had a special for 2 side salads, 2 entrees, dessert, and a bottle of wine for $65. We asked to take one of the salads home and same with the wine if we didn’t finish it. I got the pasta with vodka sauce and my boyfriend got the chicken parm. The chicken was amazing. You could tell it was a homemade breadcrumb recipe, it was delicious. It came with 1 1/2 pieces of chicken and a ton of spaghetti! The vodka sauce was amazing and the portion was huge. We had enough food for dinner the next day. The dessert was 2 cannolis and we had 1 there and took the other to go. The cream was so good. If you are looking for a nice Italian restaurant, I would 10/10 recommend going here. We will definitely be going back!
Good food. Delicious red sauce, but a little too much sauce on my wife’s Margarita. My white pizza was outstanding.
The food was delicious. The server was great. My daughter wanted something more simple to eat and she made sure that we got the dish made to order.
Food was exceptional. Each dish was better than the next. There was a steady stream of take out pizzas so I think we’ll have to try that next. Service was outstanding. Prices reasonable.
The food was excellent and our server was outstanding. Have been there in the past but our experience this time was the best we ever had.
Our Bruschetta appetizer was to die for as well as our dinners. My husband had the Pasta con Funghi and I had the Black Angus Steak Salad. We had the chocolate cake for dessert and it was decadent. Our waitress, Susie, was very friendly and efficient. We love that place.
Great service and great food.
Always a great experience! I’ve never had a bad meal . I’m coming back soon ! Great service as always !!
First time out to eat since March, very happy it was Veneto. Our first time there and it was a Birthday Dinner. Everything was Wonderful from the time we walked in the door We ordered Traditional Margarita wood fired Pizza, GF Primavera Pizza which was out of this world with flavors, Pasta Rustica and Home made Ricotta Gnocchi with the Pesto Cream ... You can see into the pizza kitchen area and it was fun to see them create our pizzas... EVERYTHING was AWESOME! Caring service... Will be going back to try more!
The bread is fantastic. The pasta rustica was very good as was the chicken parm. Once the waitress came the service was very good. There seemed to be some confusion as to who our waitress was supposed to be. Venetos has been a favorite restaurant of ours for many years.
Veneto is always such a welcoming spot, with very good food. I think they've even kicked it up a notch now! The chicken french may have been the best I've had in a restaurant.
Great food, great service, great place! I would highly recommend Veneto
We have eaten here many times over the years. It is still as good as ever. We ate inside and were pretty isolated from everyone except our waitress, who wore a mask. The food and service were quite good. We'll be back again.
We always have a great meal at Veneto. My daughter and I always go before RBTL shows. This time we went with the whole family for her 20th bday. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was excellent, and for 6 people the bill was under $150. I thought that was pretty good!!
Wood fired pizza is to die for, pasta dishes are also amazing... Great ambiance and great Service every time we go!
Everything was very good. No real complaints to speak of
It was our first experience and it won't be the last!!! Great relaxing ambiance!
Great chicken parm and amazing pizzas! Bruschetta and greens were a great appetizer !
