Description: The Venetian’s award-winning Italian cuisine (including what critics call some of San Diego’s best pizza), relaxed setting and casual atmosphere have earned generations of fans since Vince Giacalone first welcomed customers in 1965. Sons Joey and Frank proudly continue their family traditions, making sausage, soups and sauces from scratch and drawing a devoted, all-ages clientele. Highlights of the menu include bruschetta, seafood pastas, chicken and veal piccata, and thick- or thin-crust pizzas with either traditional or trendy toppings. Located in Point Loma, The Venetian’s friendly service and “Cheers” style vibe make it a favorite destination for date night, happy hour, dinner with friends or family celebrations. Seating includes the lively bar and patio (great for families and larger parties); comfy booths and banquettes; and a private wine cellar that can be reserved for parties of up to 16. Dinner nightly; lunch Monday-Friday; Sunday brunch; full bar.

Found the restaurant on Open Table. A very nice evening, would return if back in the area again. Food was above average Italian fare.

Hard to imagine, but it is difficult to find a classic linguine a la vongole, or pasta with white clam sauce. You can find that dish and other simple italian food at this restaurant in Point Loma. Service was a little disrupted by multiple servers who appear young and inexperienced. The room is very loud, which is puzzling since there... More

I do a lot of reviews and I am usually pretty generous with my ratings and very rarely have I had to write a review such as this. We have been going here for years. We have eaten at the restaurant, gotten delivery and take out. Their food has always been excellent. We ordered our pizza and were told about... More

The food here is as good as it has ever been. I grew up eating Venetian pizza, and the incredible taste hasn't changed in over 30 years! Outstanding food and friendly staff.

If you enjoy fine Italian cooking with palate pleasing taste and freshness, may I suggest a visit to The Venetian Restaurant. Well known and frequented by local's, this establishment is worth visiting while staying in San Diego. The Pizzas are P-E-R-F-E-C-T!! The blend of sauce, seasonings and varied toppings and cheeses make for great dining in or take home experience!... More

If you're in the neighborhood of Point Loma, don't miss The Venetian. Their pizza is the best around, but their entrees are fabulous as well. It's a locals spot because the food is always great and the prices are so reasonable.

My family has been going to the Venetian since we moved to California in 1969. It is a tradition when all of us get together to have a great meal at Vince's, which is what we have always called it due to Vince who started the restaurant that his sons now own. I love this restaurant and will continue to... More

We happened upon this restaurant in a part of Point Loma we hadn't discovered before. The tomato, mozzarella and basil appetizer was good, I like my tomatoes more ripe but it is January and they are out of season so, not something the restaurant controls : ) My friends had calamari and didn't care for it. They said it was... More

We were introduced to this restaurant years ago by one of our friends from Point Loma. The food is fabulous and I've been here a number of times--literally, every time I'm in San Diego. The calamari picatta is to tie for! Pizzas are great too. Desserts are wonderful. Everything is great. Very low key, reasonably priced Italian food in a... More

We entered the restaurant through the front door and found a very attractive dining room with booths lining the sides and tables in the middle. The room looked like it would be a very comfortable room in which to dine. Although some of the booths were occupied, the noise level was nice and low. We were greeted immediately, and, learning...
