VENETO is a dining experience that brings to life the history, culture, and traditions of a region in Northeastern Italy. It's a warm, enlightening setting that leaves bodies, minds, and spirits nourished through quality, handmade cuisine — best shared in good company, with love.

Our menu honors year-round classical favorites and seasonal specialties from the region of Veneto, with ingredients coming from Italy and the finest local purveyors. But it's the experience around those elements that you won't forget.

Being at VENETO is like being in Amy & Marco's home. It's a warm, inviting environment curated with one-of-a-kind antique European furniture and accessories, from the hundreds-year old Italian sofa in the dining room to the Italian marble in the restrooms. We want you comfortable, relaxed, and immersed in Italian culture as you ponder the menu, soak up new knowledge, and enjoy inspired conversation along the way.

    Excellent service, lovely place. Variable food, the pasta was undercooked - not al dente but maybe it was a one off. The fish was excellent.

    The staff is extremely attentive, the food is over the top. The portion sizes are perfect. This truly is a dining experience. Not to mention the wine is incredible. We shared a bottle of the Ripasso and it was phenomenal. If I had to complain about anything, parking is limited and the building is underwhelming considering the quality of the rest of the experience. Absolutely one of my favorite restaurants in the valley. And they follow the European tradition of no tipping allowed. If you haven’t had the opportunity to give this place a shot it should definitely be on your list.

    The food was great and the wine list was very impressive. While my server was wonderful, he was assigned too many tables so he could not be as attentive as you would want (or even expect). I do not know if this was a Sunday issue or whether the restaurant is understaffed all of the time. Regardless, I would definitely go back and I absolutely recommend Veneto.

    Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We sincerely apologize for any level of lack of attentiveness you received last night...due to illness of another server, our solo server was in fact doing his best to attend to all guests on his own and we regret that had a negative impact on your evening. We look forward to welcoming you back to one of our tables the next time you visit Salt Lake City.

    Very limited menu choices. Pastas were good but luke warm. Fish was very plain tasting. And if you like your meat cooked anything other than medium rare you’ll be out of luck. They won’t prepare it any other way. Service was mediocre. They never checked on us after we got our food. We won’t be going back!

    Wonderful food, but Veneto's follows the very Italian tradition of making a meal last 90 to 120 minutes. We were told this when we asked why it was taking so long for our second course to arrive - 2 orders of rare filet mignon does not take almost an hour to prepare, so apparently this was a deliberate delay, for which they apologized (but why apologize if this is deliberate?). Odd. If you are happy to have a long meal, then Veneto's is a fabulous place to have it.

The food is incredible and very authentic. This is our new favorite spot for Italian food in Salt Lake. Highly recommend.

    I had the tasting menu with matching wines and was so impressed I came back 3 days later for another dinner. The food is very well prepared and wines outstanding. The staff is attentive and friendly. I live in New York City and have travelled a lot in Italy so I am used to very good Italian food and Veneto right up there. If I lived in Salt Lake City I would be a frequent customer.

    Thoroughly disappointed with this restaurant. We chose this spot due to my husbands Italian roots and myself being from Europe and lived in Italy for a number of years. We arrived just as they opened with a reservation for 2. The place was empty for most of our dining experience but struggled to get a hold of waiters throughout our 90 minutes there. The questioned if we were celebrating (I had put that in the reservation notes which clearly weren’t read) as we weren’t starving we opted for steaks (we were not asked how we liked them cooked and were told they would be served medium rare as per the chefs recommendation - perfect we thought!) we started with a palette cleanser which was delicious. Our steaks first came out and upon cutting into them, we were met with lumps of fat (we ordered filet mignons) they were rare and cold - we immediately alerted waiting staff who took the steaks back to cook them more. 15 minutes later our steaks arrived, pickled in salt and lacking any other flavour. We then were served a sweet celebration dessert style treat. When requesting the bill it took over 25 minutes to get it, the waiting staff had 4 tables between 3 of them at the time. Would not recommend this restaurant. While the ambiance was nice, the food and service were below a fast food joint.

    We stayed an extra night after our ski trip to Park City, just so we could dine at Veneto . We had been there once before, in 2021, and will definitely return whenever we are in the Salt Lake City area. Food is great and very authentic. The owners are very friendly and interact with the customers. Service is great. Definitely a high end restaurant, but worth the price.

    For a true Italian experience Veneto’s is it. From walking in and being greeted to having the menu explained to you and receiving your different courses it is a wonderful experience and a truly epicurean delight. Amy & Marco know how to make you feel like you are family. The wine list tops any wine list in California’s wine country restaurants.
