Autentic Italian Cooking
In 1965 a young man named Vince Giacalone turned a dream into reality by opening a restaurant where people could enjoy food from his family’s heritage. Since then, the Venetian has been passed on to his sons Frank and Joe who proudly carry on the family business. Throughout the years the Venetian was part of the prestigious Zagat Rating, featured in San Diego Magazine, and revealed to numerous viewers of various local television channels. Even after receiving numerous awards this local Point Loma restaurant is still humbled by the fact that many professional athletes, TV personalities, established Chefs, and Food Critics enjoy their delicious Italian cuisine.
This little Italian Restaurant has stayed true to their family recipes for over forty years pleasing generations of families. The community of Point Loma comes to enjoy the great food and locals expect to run into someone they know. The Venetian encompasses a great family atmosphere and if you stop in enough you will feel like family too. Owners Frank and Joe appreciate the local business and enjoy meeting the community that helps their restaurant prosper.
