Described Happy Hour specials but had extremely limited selections- 2 different draught beer and no real attempt to promote it with the service- wait staff or host.
Food described inaccurately.

As usual our meal at Veneto was great! We have been going to Veneto for at least 10 years and are never disappointed. The service was excellent and the food was great . We ordered the special pasta and pizza and it was delicious!

Great restaurant, great location. Food was very good and service was decent. I don't like when someone comes over to the table and says that the main course will be over soon and then comes back and says that it is delayed because of "a party or something" but it will be soon. Then offers nothing. That was a bit offputting but not enough to make it ruin the experience.

I love this restaurant! The service is always great and they really care that you are ordering something you will like. The wood fired pizza is always done perfectly!
Also, I love that they put a carafe of water on your table and fill it as necessary.

We took advantage of mid-week dinner special for $70 which includes a bottle of quite decent wine along with two salads, two dinners and desert. Food and service were very good at a reasonable price. Have been going here for years and will be back.

Veneto is a favorite destination for my partner and me. Our most recent visit was particularly good. Our waiter, a young man, was very attentive and pointed us toward a new wine that we loved. We each had a wood fired pizza, and they were both fantastic. Looking forward to our next chance to return.

Love this restaurant! Service is nice and friendly. Food is excellent, although I'm stuck on their Pasta con Funghi. Pizza is also a favorite. This is a great place to go after the theater.

I have been twice now and really like the menu and the coziness of the restaurant. Food is great and prices are reasonable.
The only problem is the noise level. The first time there we sat in the corner near the window and the noise was ok. This last visit we were seated next to the bar. We had to shout to our friends to be heard and my throat was raw by the end of the night.
I think my husband and I will go by ourselves in future. Then we won't have to shout to others at our table.

We loved the prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella appetizer. My halibut with parsnip puree and Brussel sprouts entree was excellent. The only negative was a lack of pricing on the specials menu.

It was the first time I had been there, but had wanted to try it for awhile. It was great! I had pasta con funghi and it was even better than I thought it would be. Our server was amazing and we will definitely be back.

This is a very cozy place with great food. We had reservations but tables were overbooked so they offered the four of us a glass of wine. Very nice.
It was our husbands' birthday and they gave us a bruschetta for that. Also very nice. Will definitely return. Very considerate to customers.
