kept telling us how great this place is. They recently moved
to a bigger location on East Avenue and we finally stopped by. Veneto features wood fired
pizza and food from the Veneto region in northern Italy. We started with some red wine by the glass, Sanglovese Famese from Italy.
The place is beautiful. It has plenty of Old World Rochester charm and an open kitchen. This was early Friday evening and we were lucky to get a table. The folks standing at the counter in the picture above arrived right behind us and they were stuck here for awhile before being seated. There was a considerable line at the dooor when left so it looks like reservations are a must on the weekends. They are open for lunch as well.
The short menu includes insalta and pasts dishes as well as the pies. The wood fired pizzas are low, as in thin crispy crust, and piled with all sorts of grilled vegetables and meat. It's nouveau pizza not Nino's. We chose "Rustica" with pomoodoro sauce, sausage, onion and mozzarella and "Bilo Basil" with infused sliced chicken, artichoke hearts, tomato, mozzarella and fresh basil. They were fresh and fantastic. We headed out for the evening with some energy!
