Description: 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.

“GREAT Dining!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

A must try! Veneto's on East Ave has a variety of pasta's, pizza's and made to order specials that are delicious. I have been there multiple times, and always try something different, and every time I am extremely pleased with my results. I would say if you are just visiting Rochester or a local, Veneto is a place to keep coming back to!

“Disappointing meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

I had the Aglio e Olio, and was disappointed with the bland flavor. I paid $4 extra for two shrimp that were grossly overcooked and tough. The bread that came with our meal was the overly soft grocery store type, delivered in a basket with manufactured pats of butter. What you'd expect at a diner, but at an Italian restaurant?

“Excellent Quality Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Veneto's is a very popular restaurant in the East End. The quality of the food and service is consistently positive and they have a regular following. Get there early on weekends and reservations are suggested.
