A Veneto Pizzeria Ristorante – Where Big Servings are Worth It

Categories: Gastronomy;

We love Italian food for its simplicity in preparation and yet its complexity in flavors.  So for us who lead hectic lives as part of the work force, a chance to enjoy these meals within our limited lunch breaks or free time is always welcome.  Nothing says comfort than something warm, meaty, and smothered with cheese.

You can find a lot of these on A Veneto Pizzeria Ristorante’s menu.  The restaurant’s name uses the inspiration of Veneto, part of northeastern Italy, and which the famous tourist destination of Venice is the capital of.

It’s a given that they offer pizza (I usually get a slice of the All Meat kind) so, what we opted for were other unsung heroes from the list:  Baked Ziti with Meatballs (Php305)  and Buffalo Wings (Php170).

The Baked Ziti is served on a hot dish after around 10 minutes or less with three BIG meatballs.  Coming from our attempts at burger making, we know they used extenders like veggies for them but it wasn’t so bad.  The serving size is decent and good enough for sharing and comes with a layer of melted cheese that you’ll like.

Okay, so we know Buffalo Wings aren’t really authentic Italian but they just went well with the pasta. And this was flavored for the Pinoy palette with its tamis-anghang (sweet and spicy) sauce.  The chicken was cooked through and a serving has 6 big pieces for you to dig into.  If we will think of how Buffalo wings are really supposed to taste like, we believe the closest in Manila that we have are those from Sunrise Buckets.  But that afternoon, we were happy with our sweet and spicy remix.

So the next time you find an A Veneto branch nearby, you can give the pastas a shot.  They have several choices for baked ziti alone.  And you have five branches in Metro Manila to choose from.

  3. we love a veneto’s buffalo wings! their prices are reasonable and their servings are big! 🙂

    I remember going here before because my companion really wanted to introduce me to their Baked Ziti. I think that’s all I really remember about the place. ;p I really like Buffalo wings though (moreso than pasta), so I’ll definitely remember to order that next time!

      It’s a fairly decent meal. Their Buffalo Wings seem to be more on the “Pinoy” kind because of that sweet and spicy flavor. 😀 Let us know how you find it!

    they also have a branch in BF Homes, Paranaque… really big servings!

    • rftreyes says:

      You know, I’ve actually heard so much stuff about the foodie finds in BF. I think we need to go there for a visit one time 😀 . Recommendations from the locals there would be highly appreciated 😀

    I miss A Veneto! I used to frequent the place when I was in college. Maybe it’s time for a revisit. 🙂

    • rftreyes says:

      Same here. Went to the large branch in Libis before. Too bad that closed down. Well, at least there’s one in Hypermart 😀 !
