Happiness found! We Vistans were so sad at the loss of our wonderful Marcos Restaurant but we have found Veneto’s to be as good or better. Tonight we ate delicious food in a quaint atmosphere with great wine and terrific service.
It was about a block and half from my hotel and a little walk but i made it walker and all. On a budget i had the Lasagna and it was the best Ive ever had. Really, so I assume the rest of menu the...same. I was surprised at the menu pricing and the waitress was so nice. Being alone about 7 pm I took it to my room as it does have some odd folks around but no one bothered this 76 year old woman, everyone was very nice. I was amazed at this place, small and cozy. I think you will love it tooMore
This place was a gem of a find. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the ambiance-kind of traditional European vibe, music not too loud. We had a Bruschetta appetizer. Our waiter was attentive and pleasant. I had lasagna and was quite satisfied....My wife had a salmon and shrimp dish and was very pleased. For dessert we shared a lava chocolate dish, with coffee, that took the whole experience to the next level! We would eagerly eat there again the next time we pass through Oceanside.More
We thoroughly enjoyed this meal. It was so wonderfully prepared in the flavors were so bright. Very very good Italian. They were very short staffed but their quality didn’t slip one bit. Really enjoyed the meal.
We ordered pizza for pick up from Venetos and it was a great experience. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The pizza was delicious. We had pepperoni with fresh mushrooms, sauce was great, oregano taste. Crust was crisp and chewy, just the way I...like it. Perfectly browned too. Nice Italian decor in restaurant, I will go back and dine in once Covid is over. Easy parking in restaurant 's own lot.More
We ate at Venetos tonight and where very happy we did. The restaurant is on a busy street and does have patio seating, but happily we sat inside where it is quite charming. We enjoyed a reasonably priced and great Montepulciano red wine, assortment of...house made Italian breads with olive oil/balsamic vinegar ( i could have stopped eating with the bread sooo good). My wife had the chicken marsala and i had the evening fish special of fresh sea bass over spinach and a lemon caper sauce. Both entrees were very comprised of fresh ingredients and delicious. We finished the meal with the Tiramisu. Venetos is an authentic Italian restaurant, owned and run by Pino who is a great host. We wish Venetos was in La Mesa so that we could go once a week, but will differently come back when we are in Oceanside.More
Decided to get away from the fish for a nice meal and we weren't disappointed. All 4 of us had something different and were very pleased. Very Italian staff that was friendly and good. Good place to eat in Oceanside!
Food was fantastic. The owner even came out to box up our leftovers. HE never introduced himself as the owner, but you could tell by the authority he carried. When we was leaving there was a cool article on the wall about the owner. Loved...it!More
We were driving into town and felt like Italian food. We asked Google and Venetos popped up. We've lived in the area and had never heard of it but decided to give it a try. Wonderful food, great customer service, nice atmosphere. Try it....you'll like...it!More
Great Lunch after the 4 of July in Oceanside California.
The owner Pino was also Our Server.
Lots of Old School Italian food and charm.
The lady had a Great Lasagna and I had the Fresh seafood medley special in a beautiful sauce that was...served our linguine.
Easily a must visit spot when in and around Oceanside and Carlsbad for me.
Thank You Pino!More
Always amazing! From the ambiance, live music, homemade Italian food, wine, friendly & great service... all of it makes for a perfect night out! My pesce alla linguine had incredible flavor and generous selection of seafood. My husband had a favorite Chicken Parmesan, add the...homemade tasty garlic knots and a special Chianti from Italy... bellisimo!More
Small and friendly with seating outdoors and a real plus- parking just next door to the north along North Coast Highway, which happens to be essential because parking along Oceanside's main drag is hard to find. Now for the special part: great, authentic Italian food...that's served with music on Friday & Saturday( phone for times). Just about anything you order you are bound to like so explore the menu. Also serves Pizza. And...there's wine tasting. So chill out and enjoy one of O'sides most memorable restaurants.More
We had to wait almost 30 minutes in a queue stretching out the door before finally being seated despite the restaurant being half empty. It seemed that the owner was the only person allowed to seat customers, which he seemed reluctant to do (possibly because...he did not have enough staff). This frustrated all of us waiting in the queue. After finally being seated we had to push to have our order taken. When the food came we found it to be very basic and not at all up to the recommendations we had read beforehand. Perhaps the restaurant was just busy but I certainly would not recommend Venetos. There are far better restaurants in Oceanside with much better food and excellent service.More
