I have been here several times and have always been delighted with the food, service and charm of this little italian restaurant. This time I brought some girl friends and was very embarrassed when the service was terrible. Our waitress Jullian was extremely slow and...More

Nice, very popular restaurant with friendly staff and reasonable prices. Try not to visit when the place is busy. My thin-crust pizza was almost burned it was hard to cut or chew. My only negative observation is that their pizzas are thin-crust, and I like...More

I did not have pizza, but instead a ricotta gnocchi with creamy pesto sauce. It was not very good at all - I did not taste any ricotta, and found the gnocchi to be heavy, with an undercooked flour taste. Good gnocchi should just melt...More

The traditional margherita pizza was excellent. The sauce made it particularly good. We also had the Bianca, which was tasty too, but the margherita was really good. We enjoyed looking at the vintage photos of Italy, especially Venice, which were on the walls.

We enjoyed Veneto; the service and ambience were good, and the food was quite good, though the pizza wasn't mind-blowing.

Good was excellent. Service was great and the atmosphere is nice, kind of quiet. The chicken parmigiano was excellent. The only thing that is a downfall of the place is that the selection is limited, but they cook the food fresh.

I usually park right on east ave. I've never had a problem finding a spot, although, I know there's a lot of construction going on right now... You should be able to find something on east or on a side street... Enjoy!

Veneto is a casual dining restaurant located in downtown Rochester's East End district. For 13 years, we've specialized in from-scratch, light Italian food in an old world atmosphere. Our atmosphere is upscale, yet casual. The kitchen is our centerpiece, as it should be, and set up so that you may watch your meals being prepared right in front of you. The exposed brick in our 150+ year old building and wood furniture provides a warmth and if that's not enough, the wood fired pizza oven reaches 600 degrees. We'd be honored if you would dine with us and let the food, service, and ambiance speak for itself.Our Signature offerings include wood-fired pizzas and hand-made pastas.
