Phoned and ordered takeaway pizzas from this local Italian Restaurant. Pizzas were delicious, we have previously eaten in & would certainly recommend this authentic Italian restaurant. A local icon in Point Loma.

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 food is amazing, the service is impeccable. This is a wonderful location for a date night, family gatherings or even a business dinner. The portions are great. I make it a point to eat here every time I am in San Diego.

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.
