I have been twice now and really like the menu and the coziness of the restaurant. Food is great and prices are reasonable.
The only problem is the noise level. The first time there we sat in the corner near the window and the noise was ok. This last visit we were seated next to the bar. We had to shout to our friends to be heard and my throat was raw by the end of the night.
I think my husband and I will go by ourselves in future. Then we won't have to shout to others at our table.

We loved the prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella appetizer. My halibut with parsnip puree and Brussel sprouts entree was excellent. The only negative was a lack of pricing on the specials menu.

It was the first time I had been there, but had wanted to try it for awhile. It was great! I had pasta con funghi and it was even better than I thought it would be. Our server was amazing and we will definitely be back.

This is a very cozy place with great food. We had reservations but tables were overbooked so they offered the four of us a glass of wine. Very nice.
It was our husbands' birthday and they gave us a bruschetta for that. Also very nice. Will definitely return. Very considerate to customers.

Visiting Rochester and found this on Open Table. Lovely evening in a casual atmosphere with attentive service. Sat at the bar - our choice - and we were well cared for. Pinot noir (by the glass) was quite bland. Cabernet (by the glass) much better.

As always the food and service was excellent! I love the building itself with the exposed brick walls. We make a point of bringing new people every time we eat here in order to expose others to it

Very pleasant experience each time we visit: the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella kicks things off great. Their Pollo and Rustica pizzas are perennial favorites, but was in a steak mood last time and opted for the 14-oz. ribeye which was a great choice. Servers are always so cordial and attentive. Climate control set to perfection, with no draft from front door: a welcome haven in chilly, wet Rochester!

This is the best restaurant we have been to in awhile. The food is amazing! I had the Pasta con Funghi with truffle cream sauce. It was unbelievable! The glass of wine was excellent and was a good size for the price! The waitress was awesome! I can't wait to go back again!

Consistently good food and great staff. The pizzas are the best in the city and the specials are always creative and delicious! The new owners have maintained the ambiance but added special touches and enhanced the wine list... we’ve been coming to Veneto for the past 10 years and will continue coming!

I would definitely recommend Venetos! The only negative for me was the noise level. Your survey says "energetic" but I felt it was more disturbing to a conversation and no matter how I tried to shut it out, it was always there.
The service was terrific but maybe a bit too fast.

Veneto Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta is consistently good and constantly getting better. The food is top notch and the service is outstanding.

We are regular customers here for very good reasons. Those listed above. We also feel like family at Veneto. And the people of Veneto genuinely and honestly care about us and all they serve.

Easy parking in one of Rochester's most lively areas of town. Such a great place!

This is just a terrific place to have dinner before a play or movie. Their wood fired pizza is great, and their salads are delicious. My husband and I split a pizza, salad and bottle of wine. It was perfect. Service was super-fast and everything was reasonably priced, including the wine. We’ll definitely be back!

It was great! Found this place on Yelp since I’m visiting friends for a wedding in Rochester. The food was delicious, well priced as the service was amazing. Would totally come back again! The veggie burreta pizza was wonderful with the recommendation of it being crispy.
