Excellent server, Ryan. Food and wine were delicious! A very nice experience. We will be back.
We have been to Veneto several times and overall the meals have been good.
The service was good as usual. This time the food was adequate only. The amount of prosciutto in the pasta with peas was negligible (and I am being kind) which made it for a for a “pedestrian” dish. The bay scallops in my companion’s pasta was disappointing as well, but real scallops would have made a mush better dish. Otherwise, the dish was good! All and all, we have had better experiences at this venue!
The food is really delicious. I especially love the Arancini which changes nightly. Decent selection of Italian wines. Even a nice rose. It can be a little noisy but the food and ambiance make it worth it.
Good menu, good service and great spot. We have visited Rochester 3 times and each time we eat at Veneto. Our kids love their pizza and pasta.
consistently excellent as always. Same great Waiter (James)
Great food, Great atmosphere, wonderful feel! Definitely a place to come back to!
The best meal ever - especially if you like mushrooms and risotto!! Delicious and great service from Christine. Definitely we will be back!
We were 3 couples on a Friday night. Have enjoyed lunch at Veneto for years. Never had dinner. The fact I could book on Open Table was why we picked Veneto. Very nice atmosphere. Had a high top table for 6 in the back. Noise not a problem. Good service. Only glitch was she forgot to serve the salad to one couple. Served it and didn’t charge us. Very nice. Had a good time.
Great service and food is very good nice wine list fair prices. High tops are great because the chairs have back on them. Bread was a little hard and flavorless for my liking. Most certainly will go back !!
Good food & service. Nice view of the activity on East Ave. Good size bar if you choose. Easy open table reservations.
One of my favorite places to eat in Rochester. Fantastic selection, consistent quality, and amazing specials. Make sure to save room for dessert.
Always great food and great service!
That’s why we dine here frequently!
Steak was a little over done and fatty. Vegetables were tired and squash was wet and lifeless. Asparagus was meh. Did make a bernaise sauce on request, but not really a bearnaise sauce :/
I always look forward to our weekly dinners at Veneto. Food and service are always excellent.
Didn't even know this spot existed! Delicious wood fired pizza! Can't wait to return and try more awesome Italian dishes on the menu.
Missed some of our favorite dishes, like the sauteed shrimp pasta.
Great location to share with friends!
Wait staff was superb!
Will eat here again and again!
This was our 4th dinner at Veneto and as always the service and food were amazing. Nate, our server, was very knowledgeable about all items on the menu and made some great suggestions. Our party of 6 really enjoyed the experience. We will continue to stop in at Veneto on our way to the theater!
I always enjoy Veneto. It's a favorite - a place where I go often with my partner and with visitors from out of town. The menu is fantastic. It can get a little loud, but I guess that's what comes with a crowded popular place and people enjoying themselves!
Thanks for your continued patronage! Look forward to seeing you and your guests in the future.
Visited while on a family vacation, with 7 of us, three children. Wonderful menu options for the different pizzas - and other Italian entrees. Our server was terrific! She was friendly, kind to the kids, attentive. Portions are quite generous! Good wine choices. The location was an easy walk from the Hyatt Regency in downtown Rochester. Prices were quite reasonable.
I would go back!
Four different entrees, done to perfection. Outstanding wine list. Fresh strawberry shortcake. The biscuits were still warm.
It was far too noisy. So noisy, in fact, that we left as soon as we could finish our food and decided to go elsewhere for an after-dinner drink and desert. As we left, we noticed that the busy street outside the restaurant, did not have as much objectionable noise as inside the restaurant.
Your survey question re: noise level is flawed because it uses a positive term, "energetic" instead of "too much noise" to describe an overly loud environment.
I'm sorry it was noisy. Unfortunately on the weekends, when we are full, it tends to be very loud in the restaurant. We are trying to explore additional ways to absorb the sound but it is difficult with an old building with wood floors! For guests who enjoy a quieter environment, I would suggest giving us a try for an early dinner, around the time we open.
Service was slow and non-attentive. Water was never refilled and long wait for food while there were plenty of open tables. Food was a bit pricey considering the serving size.
I would inquire as to what you ordered that you considered a small serving as we generally do not receive complaints about the portion sizes. In fact, we go through many to-go boxes as guests take food home with them.
Food was good all around I tasted my friends pizza which had red sauce ...sauce was way to sweet beware if you don’t like sweet red sauce. My pollo pizza was excellent greens and beans
were delicious i tasted my friends chicken parm,it was ok he liked it tho. All in all i would certainly go back. Please stop putting to much sugar in the red sauce :)
Veneto is ALWAYS a good bet for delicious food and excellent service at a fair price! The Grilled Prosciutto Wraps are one of my all-time favorite appetizers. Love their pizza and entrees too.
From start to finish this was a wonderful experience. Service was welcoming, food was delicious, and the drinks were fantastic.
Service and food was excellent, make sure to get a cannoli
The service was good and the food was just ok. I am gluten free, so finding a pizza restaurant that has gluten free options is exciting. The downside was they do not make their own GF crust, which is kind of lame. Also, you have to pay extra for the GF crust, which would be fine if it was the same size (2” smaller) and quality. Probably won’t go back, Napa Wood Fired Pizza does it way better and they make their own crust from scratch!! Step it up Veneto!!
The place is nice .The service was very good . The food this night for me was below average. I ordered
the greens and beans and asked if I could have it for a dinner over pasta,she said yes and do you want sausage with it. I said yes.There was hardly and greens and beans in it and the sausage were like crumbs and it was sitting a bowl of liquid. The worst part was when I saw the bill the next day $11 greens and beans,$2 for the sausage and $9 for the pasta. everyone else said there meals were good.
We had dinner here during the Rochester jazz festival. Had Arancini and margarita pizza both were excellent!
Nate was our server and he was wonderful. We tried two of the specials and they were terrific. We are repeat customers and love it here.
Best little restaurant around. Always a favorite if we are in the city. Never a bad choice.
Hadn’t eaten here in years. Food was excellent, reasonable portion size for the price and server Alex was the best!! Will definitely go back.
Love the food there and the ambiance of the restaurant. We had the ariancci balls and calimari. The calimari was a small order in comparison to other places. Then we all had salads. My wedge salad was delicious!
Food was very late and with 2 young children it was frustrating. Plus we had to be seated each on one end of the table so that the waiters can pass through
Veneto is one of my favorite places. I go there often and always enjoy it.
Went to Veneto before RBTL performance. The food was amazing. We ordered arancini, pasta with proscuitto and peas, and a bianca pizza. We all tried a little of everything. One thing was better than the next. The waitress was very pleasant, and on top of things. It was a great location because it was just minutes from the theatre. I would definitely return.
Absolutely great service and the food was outstanding.
Food staff are just fantastic. Clean and they are always improving. Just love this place. East end close to everything👍
Veneto is our “go to” place in the city. The chefs produce consistently good food, and the wait staff is always friendly yet efficient. The menu changes slightly with the seasons and always offers a lot to choose from. There are always interesting specials as well. My favorites are the pasta specials! We’ve never had a bad meal there.
