To successfully make pizza, one must toss the proper ingredients into a concrete mixer, wait for the mixture to harden, and then drop in a few sticks of dynamite to blast slices from the drum walls. Today’s Groupon leaves delicate pizza creation to the professionals: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and fresh Italian fare at Pizzeria Venti.
Continuing the Italian tradition of pizza al taglio (pizza by the slice), Pizzeria Venti offers a handful of oven-baked pizzas teeming with trans-fat-free toppings. Like a repertory theater, Pizzeria Venti's homespun crust acts as a stage for more than 20 pizza performances. The pillowy crusts are pedestals for varieties such as italian sausage, seasoned with fennel, fresh basil, and herbs ($3.25/slice) or chicken vesuvio, which touts a roasted breast of chicken, mushrooms, black olives, and garlic ($4.75/slice). Though pizza prevails as the pizzeria's main attraction, the menu is also stocked with baked pastas ($6.50+), salads ($6+), and soups ($3+) to create a culinary lineup that is more well rounded than a reconstructed Humpty Dumpty.
The spacious interior and homey décor of Pizzeria Venti plays host to dining parties large and small. A covered outdoor patio offers respite from the summer sun, blowing fresh air across fresh eats and preventing claustrophobics from shedding rivulets of frightened tears through their marinara.
