Peaceful lunch spot overlooking the harbour

Veneto is in a quiet location a few blocks up from the busy harbourside road, with a scenic view of the Venetian fortress which overlooks the port. There is a spacious, sheltered outdoor terrace as well as a charming interior room dominated by a quirky mural of Venice. Staff are very friendly... read more

We found the food quite nice and the staff really helpful. The restaurant wasn't very busy maybe because it's location is a bit away from the Main Street but still has a great view. Don't miss the cheesecake, it was excellent.

The food was delicious and the view of the sea was great. The restaurant was fairly quiet and off the busy main area so it was a nice escape from the busy streets. The girl who served us was also super friendly and made every effort to make sure we enjoyed our meal. Would go again.

The view from the restaurant terrace is lovely, but the food is pretty average.We ordered the daily specials - beef in a really delicious tomato sauce and saffron risotto. The wait staff was friendly and nice, but the prices were a bit high. All in all, a good experience, but nothing really exceptional.

Our delightful young hosts were very helpful in advising on our choices. The food is authentic, beautifully cooked & served. Very generous serves! We enjoyed our first dinner there so much we returned the following evening ( and ordered the... More

We went in today for an odd-timed lunch -- 3pm -- and while the restaurant was empty, we had a lovey time. We had our pick of the seats and sat with the impressive view of the harbor (and a political demonstration of some sort). The service and food were excellent! We ate the vine leaves, zucchini fritters (super fluffy),... More

Went here and overall was impressed and would recommend. Very nice view of the Venetian harbor. Interior is nice: rustic, exposed beam look with simple set up. There is a covered summer terrace for warmer weather. Food was quite good. Chicken souvlaki was spiced and cooked excellently. Feta and grape leave appetizers were quite good. Food is reasonably priced. Only... More

We went out looking for the closest nice-looking restaurant, and found Veneto. Attentive staff, nice drinks, great stuffed vine leaves, and perfectly done kalamari. Deadly cheese cake. Will return.
