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.

We were seated right away- they have a decent Italian wine selection and brought fresh-baked bread slices. I ordered greens and beans and my wife ordered bruschetta for appetizers. The menu has a nice variety of choices, but we both ordered the special- 5 cheese and chicken ravioli in a garlic cram sauce with tomatoes and spinach. We’d definitely come again!

We had a party of 12 for a birthday dinner before heading to the Auditorium Theater to see ‘Rent’. Our waitress was great, food was amazing. I had the prosciutto, peas and Alfredo with pasta and it was so good!! I’ll definitely be back!

If you don't mind waiting for over an hour for your food, then this place is for you. It's not so much of the fault of the staff, since they were running - it's the lack of staff... no hostess, no bartender, no buss people. The waitresses had to do everything. This is a fault of ownership & management. There were 4 groups of people that were irate with the staff because of waiting so long for food. One couple that entered just after us, was leaving after eating and we still didn't have our food. To make matters much worse, a huge table of 10 came in, an hour after we sat down, with still no food and they were served right away. The waitress explained to us that they had preordered?! So they were eating right away and we were still waiting.
Wow, what a great business model - said no successful restaurant owner ever!!! When we angrily asked for the bill for our wine, they announced that our food was suddenly ready. We didn't have time to eat it though since we were already late for the concert we were heading to.
