The man claiming to be the owner/manager was incredibly rude after we complained about bland, repulsive food. We also witnessed him treating his employees horribly. The entire staff was unprofessional.
Best Italian Food Around – Veneto's has exceptional food; large portions with reasonable prices. I have been several times and I always have terrific service with a fabulous atmosphere. You will not find a better fettucini alfredo anywhere!
Houston's Best Italian Outside of New York or Boston – I have been coming for quite some time now and am never disappointed. The food is the best Italian outside New York or Boston. Huge portions and low prices. Great service with a smile. Hank is the owner and almost always there to take care of business. Great Guy! And Lewis is always our waiter. Very knowledgeable and on the ball. You must try this place. Manga!
owner treats employee with disrespect!!! – I want to let everyone that goes here know how disappointing it is to know that this man treats his staff very unprofessionally and with very poor character. He used inappropriate language to a staff member that was only 16yrs of age and because of that I will never go to this place! This is very horrible and I feel that anyone that thinks the same will quit going there as well!!! Very sad to know that someone could talk to a child that way just glad it wasn't mine cause he would definitely hear it from me...I'm just feel sorry for the young girl that he did this to!!!!
Best Italian I've found in Houston – Food was great! Service wonderful. Amanda was so pleasant really made the visit. This is the best, by far, Italian food I've found in Houston yet. And the tiramisu!!!!! to die for!!!
Avoid it. I got really sick from the food.. – It was an awful experience.. The food can be called Italian based on the menu only. I ordered a salmon and there was a spoiled seafood in the plate which had really bad smell.. I tried a small piece and than vomited for 5 minutes in the restroom. I called a waiter and asked to return this dish explaining the reason. To my surprise, the bill included $5 for the salad which I ate (the salmon dish included the salad, so they did not charge for the salmon, but ONLY for the salad) and threw up.. I was amazed!!! Went to the manager, and he "kindly" explained that "some people order only salad and not the main course" so the salad is $5. From this explanation I understand that a food poisoning is a daily routine in this place and they try to compensate it by charging for "salad" (which barely costs $1). I'm at home now, and it is possible that I need to visit a physician since it does not get any better. Just wanted to warn you guys! I have never seen such a horrible service.. and I never complained before on a restaurant.
The Best Restaurant in NW Houston For Sure – Veneto is a great restaurant. The owners are always there. They have a piano player there every time we go. Service is good and the food is also. We love the bruschetta and raviola and chicken piccata and our kids love the pizza. Every meal we have had there has been delicious. Be sure to save room for their desserts!
Veneto Italian Grill DO NOT EAT HERE!!!! This was our 1st visit & it was horrible! 1st our waiter picked up a napkin off the table & wiped his mouth off right in front of us.GROSS!! I ordered the Manacoti & it was so tough.I asked the waiter to remove the item from the bill and when he came back he asked if taking half off was ok.I told him no so the Owner came over & told me that the dish was wonderful & that he would not take it off the bill b/c he cut into ...it & thought that it was perfect and cut like butter.The guy is an idiot.He refused to correct the matter.Read More
Best Itallian Food in NW Houston – Excellent food, good prices, romantic yet ok for families. We loved the patio, and will sit by the fountain next time. We have been there 6 times now, and it is consistently good. Bread & dip is awesome. They make it there. We got a dessert to split between us because we were so full, and it was awesome. Our waiter, Bryan said the owner's wife makes the desserts. My hats off to her, cause normally I don't like chocolate cake. I think the reason we were so comfortable and satisfied, was because the owner is always there making sure things are taken care of, and goes around talking to everyone. We highly reccommend Veneto.
Love the spaghetti & meatsauce! – We live close to Veneto's, and have dined there and had takeout many times. We like the menu, the atmosphere, and that the owners are always there. I can understand some people's comments about the service- although mine has always been good; the wait staff seems very young, kind of like they haven't been doing it that long. Anyway, back to the food. They start you off with the bread and dipping sauce, made from herbs and olive oil- sooo good! We always get the spaghetti and meatsauce, but when I've gone with family from out of town, they always enjoy their meal, too. The portions are enormous, so go when you're hungry! The atmosphere is nice, not too dressy, and on Fridays there are live musicians playing. I would also say that this place is kid friendly, even though I've never seen too many kids there. I've taken my kids, and each time there might have been one or two other families with young children in the restaurant. Also, when my kids were newborns, this was our go-to restaurant for takeout. We could order one meal and split it b/c the portions were so big! The price is right, too. You really get a lot for what you pay. As for the nay-sayers' comments, you have to understand that this is a neighborhood restaurant, not something in town. It's not that sophisticated, elegant, or expensive. All in all, I'd highly recommend Veneto's. Try it, you'll like it!
