Success! Thanks for posting your review of Via Veneto. You’ve done the world some good today.


Went here for a date night with the husband - as some other reviewers said, it's pretty pricey. That said, for a nice date night and delicious food, it is worth it every once in a while depending on your budget. The atmosphere is romantic and the staff were very pleasant and accommodating. My husband ordered the octopus salad and I ordered the minestrone soup to start. Both were fantastic! I had a few bites of my hus... view more

Editorial review from Citysearch

We were warmly greeted by your staff and offered one of the front tables, which I was eyeing. Instead of choosing our meal, I told your staff to bring us what they recommended. They brought out two appetizers. The tuna tartare was truly the best I have had in Santa Monica, if not all of LA. Fresh and light and perfectly seasoned. The mushroom appetizer was rich and flavorful. The sampling of raviolis was our personal... view more

Excellent Food!

My name is Sarah and I had dinner in your restaurant this past Saturday. It was my first time to Via Veneto and it will not be the last. The food was excellent and I thought our server was wonderful as well. I thought I would pass on the compliment and let you know that I wrote an excellent review for you on TripAdvisor. As a small business owner myself, I know how every little review can help. I wish you continued s... view more

Terrible Food and Service

This place is so cute and comfy BUT the problem is with the food and the mean waiters- I appreciate good food and service and have dined at many fine places in NYC and all over the world- This place is a joke- A cruel joke even- The food is not prepared fresh-the pasta bland and the sauces so-so-and the prices outrages for such below average food and service They don't seem to know the diffenece between sea bass and ... view more

High Class Italian Restaurant

Loved the atmosphere, Loved the cuisine, Loved the service. If you appreciate good food then you will know that these are people who know their food! To the lady with the partner who wanted cheese on their seafood, maybe you should try a different restaurant where their are cooks, not chefs. They are bringing their Italian traditions with them and sharing their wonderful food with us, they know how to serve it and th... view more

Romantic - Pricey

Great atmosphere. If you're on a date, it's sure to impress. As a married couple, frankly, I thought we could have made a better choice. I hate to say it, but after a number of years, you just don't have to try so hard. The specials were fabulous, but my wife's langoustine plate was about $70. Ouch. Great wine list though, and the waiter was very knowledgeable so he helped me make a great choice for a bottle under $5... view more

Unless you own a private jet and can shuttle back and forth to Rome, italy- this cozy and elegant restaurant will spoil your taste buds endlessly. The feast is decadent and the owners, Marco & Fabrizio and their team of Italian waiters will pamper you with effortless charm. A must-do in Santa Monica!!

I really wanted to love you

I had dined here years ago, loved it, and had yet to return. It was easy to make a reservation, even at 8 PM on a Saturday night, which was fine with me. The lobster ravioli was our appetizer, and it was good. I ordered portabello ravioli and my date ordered the seafood pasta. All dishes were above average, but nothing mind-blowing. Here's the thing -- they literally didn't allow my date to have parmesan cheese on hi... view more

overpriced with arrogance

I am all for paying for a good meal. The wine started at $72. a bottle and went beyond $2000. That would be okay except the $100 bottle of wine is really $20 and not worth that kind of mark up. \r There are a lot of specials that you have to try to understand as they rattle them off quickly in a heavy Italian accent that leaves you kinda stumped (I over heard the other table say the same thing we did: why don't they ... view more
