Veneto Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta
Proudly serving a large selection of moderately priced Italian Wines in addition to favorites from the Finger Lakes and California. Many beer choices as well including Peroni on tap.
Absolutely the best homemade pasta I have ever had, Flavors outstanding !
Food and service was great...I will definitely be back when I am in Rochester again...
Lovely night. Great pizza, wine and service :)
This was our second time at this reassurance and it was as great as the first.
James is awesome!
Love Veneto’s! I come every time I have theater tickets and appreciate the meal and wine beforehand! I know it will be a great experience!
Very comfortable vibe great value I loved my meal my wife liked hers but we both plan on going back. First time going and loved it.
Visiting Rochester and found this on Open Table. Lovely evening in a casual atmosphere with attentive service. Sat at the bar - our choice - and we were well cared for. Pinot noir (by the glass) was quite bland. Cabernet (by the glass) much better.
As always the food and service was excellent! I love the building itself with the exposed brick walls. We make a point of bringing new people every time we eat here in order to expose others to it
Food was delicious. Restaurant very nice and intimate.
Very pleasant experience each time we visit: the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella kicks things off great. Their Pollo and Rustica pizzas are perennial favorites, but was in a steak mood last time and opted for the 14-oz. ribeye which was a great choice. Servers are always so cordial and attentive. Climate control set to perfection, with no draft from front door: a welcome haven in chilly, wet Rochester!
This is the best restaurant we have been to in awhile. The food is amazing! I had the Pasta con Funghi with truffle cream sauce. It was unbelievable! The glass of wine was excellent and was a good size for the price! The waitress was awesome! I can't wait to go back again!
Consistently good food and great staff. The pizzas are the best in the city and the specials are always creative and delicious! The new owners have maintained the ambiance but added special touches and enhanced the wine list... we’ve been coming to Veneto for the past 10 years and will continue coming!
The first we noticed walking in the door was the enticing aroma. It only got better from there.
I would definitely recommend Venetos! The only negative for me was the noise level. Your survey says "energetic" but I felt it was more disturbing to a conversation and no matter how I tried to shut it out, it was always there.
The service was terrific but maybe a bit too fast.
Veneto Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta is consistently good and constantly getting better. The food is top notch and the service is outstanding.
We are regular customers here for very good reasons. Those listed above. We also feel like family at Veneto. And the people of Veneto genuinely and honestly care about us and all they serve.
Easy parking in one of Rochester's most lively areas of town. Such a great place!
This is just a terrific place to have dinner before a play or movie. Their wood fired pizza is great, and their salads are delicious. My husband and I split a pizza, salad and bottle of wine. It was perfect. Service was super-fast and everything was reasonably priced, including the wine. We’ll definitely be back!
It was good, not great. Food was decent, nothing extraordinary but would go again.
It was great! Found this place on Yelp since I’m visiting friends for a wedding in Rochester. The food was delicious, well priced as the service was amazing. Would totally come back again! The veggie burreta pizza was wonderful with the recommendation of it being crispy.
Veneto never disappoints. Our server Nate was great! He doesn’t rush you but is still very attentive. The food was amazing. We both got pasta dishes and they were perfectly cooked. We’ll be back for sure.
Food was very good, server James was excellent.
It was our second visit, we had excellent service and excellent food. We will go back and spread the word!!
Good wine and food at a good price for a date night with my husband.
Thanks for making Veneto your date night spot!
Excellent server, Ryan. Food and wine were delicious! A very nice experience. We will be back.
Thanks for dining at Veneto Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta and enjoying our food and wine!
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!
I am sorry that the food was not up to our usual standards that evening. We will be discussing this with the Chefs and making changes to the dishes accordingly (we are making some minor changes to roll out our Winter Menu in a few weeks).
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.
Thanks for dining at Veneto and enjoying our food & wine! Sorry, it does get a little noisy at busy times on the weekends.
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.
Thanks for making Veneto your Rochester restaurant of choice! The staff appreciates your patronage. Look forward to see you on your next visit to Rochester. Ciao!
consistently excellent as always. Same great Waiter (James)
Thanks for dining at Veneto Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta!
Great food, Great atmosphere, wonderful feel! Definitely a place to come back to!
Thanks for dining at Veneto Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta! Look forward to seeing you again!
The best meal ever - especially if you like mushrooms and risotto!! Delicious and great service from Christine. Definitely we will be back!
Thanks for dining at Veneto Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta! For mushroom lovers, I would suggest the owner's favorite pizza that has mushrooms and truffle oil. Look forward to seeing you again!
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.
Thanks for dining at Veneto Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta! Glad the server could make the "glitch" acceptable. LOL - the owner actually likes to eat salad at the end of his meal so hopefully the couple that got the salads late were still able to enjoy them!
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 !!
Thank you for your patronage. The bread has been a struggle for us . . . some like, some don't ... too crispy, too soft ... are servers cutting too much too early in the evening?, etc - - we do try to tweek & make changes with it (it comes from a local bakery).
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 :/
Sorry the chefs tried to make a sauce that we don't have and it wasn't to your standards. The steak we order is CAB, I will inquire if there have been other complaints with the meat being too fatty as there are none I'm aware of.
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!
