Veneziano Italian Restaurant’s talented kitchen staff draws on a menu of traditional Italian recipes tweaked by multiple generations during more than 60 years in business. Guests can dive into seafood dishes such as scallops parmesan ($17), a catch of sautéed scallops tossed in marinara sauce and baked with cheese, or sort through maritime treasures like Poseidon during tax season with the shrimp, calamari, and mussels of the frutti di mare ($23.50). Beneath the gleeful clutter of murals, mementoes, and stained glass that festoons the walls, Tony’s beef braciolia napolitana ($17.50) tempts palates with a savory pinwheel of beef rolled with eggs and pine nuts dunked in ragu sauce with mushrooms. House-made pastas such as manicotti, gnocchi, and cannelloni fill platters with freshly minted noodles customized with a variety of traditional sauces and butcher-fresh meats atop festive red-checked tablecloths. Patrons can share custody of dinner with a menu of hand-tossed 16-inch pizzas such as the veggie pie ($18), a crisp crust bedecked with mushrooms, spinach, eggplant, and notes from adoring farmers.
