We always ask around to eat local when on trips, and found this family owned Italian gem! Everything was prepared fresh, and the wait staff was extremely attentive. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good, no great, old fashioned Italian dinner!

Wow!!! 100% Authentic Point Loma/San Diego TRADITION and "The World's Best Pizza"!!! Try Linguica/Pepperoni and Fresh Sliced Tomatoes or Anchovies with Black Olives. The steamed clams are also incredible. Ask for the founder, Joey, he's great! Don't miss this in spot...

The Venetian’s award-winning Italian cuisine (including what critics call some of San Diego’s best pizza), relaxed setting and casual atmosphere have earned generations of fans since Vince Giacalone first welcomed customers in 1965. Sons Joey and Frank proudly continue their family traditions, making sausage, soups and sauces from scratch and drawing a devoted, all-ages clientele. Highlights of the menu include bruschetta, seafood pastas, chicken and veal piccata, and thick- or thin-crust pizzas with either traditional or trendy toppings. Located in Point Loma, The Venetian’s friendly service and “Cheers” style vibe make it a favorite destination for date night, happy hour, dinner with friends or family celebrations. Seating includes the lively bar and patio (great for families and larger parties); comfy booths and banquettes; and a private wine cellar that can be reserved for parties of up to 16. Dinner nightly; lunch Monday-Friday; Sunday brunch; full bar.
