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....More

I did not have pizza, but instead a ricotta gnocchi with creamy pesto sauce. It was not very good at all - I did not taste any ricotta, and found the gnocchi to be heavy, with an undercooked flour taste. Good gnocchi should just melt...More

I usually park right on east ave. I've never had a problem finding a spot, although, I know there's a lot of construction going on right now... You should be able to find something on east or on a side street... Enjoy!

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.
