We tried Venero's pizza during the middle of the week not knowing it was 30 minutes to closing time. Carol was our waitress and was great. She told us the history of Venero's and suggested several dishes. We ordered a stromboli and a calzone and a few mixed drinks. The stromboli, calzone, and the drinks were very good. We would...

I've been coming here since highschool (around 15 years now) when it had a different name and I've always enjoyed the food. I have tried most of the menu but mostly I eat the stromboli. Good family atmosphere and nice setup.

Have driven by several time but never felt the urge to stop.... glad we did. Service was great and food was excellent. Had fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp... very good. While the draft selection was small it was adequate and included some local breweries. Pricing was reasonable and they have specials every day. Always nice to find a new place to... More

Took my family to Venero's for my wife's birthday. The food is exceptional and our waitress went out of her way to put my wife's cake in the cooler for us while we ate. She also served the cake with plates and forks. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone craving Italian.

We always enjoy eating at Venero's! The chicken marsala is off the hook, we love the New York style pizza with the thin crispy crust, and the garlic knots are heavenly! The atmosphere is very family friendly as the restaurant itself is family oriented. Our servers have always been friendly and efficient. The owners are some of the nicest people... More

Wife stated that it was the worst pizza that she had ever had. She ate one piece and quit say that she would rather do... More

Cafe style diner. Excellent selection of pizza and family oriented. Met owner who gave us history of all ingredients fresh and homemade. Very relaxing to grab a bite without having to dress up. Everyone there was so friendly. Wish they had one in Texas.

We were excited to try out Venero's Pizzeria on Highway 70 with family. The people working were super friendly, and the atmosphere (more small rooms than one big room) was great. We ordered several different pizzas, a cheesesteak hoagie, and spaghetti and meatballs. We thought the pizza was just okay (nowhere near the quality of NYC pizza certainly), but we... More
