A visit to Via Veneto on W. Broadway...

A rep lunch today made me try out this place since I was not in the Cactus Club or Milestones mood as we usually do. I had read that this place is (run?) (owned?) by the previous owner of Amarcord. I never dined at Amarcord so I do not know if it is similiar or not.

I also rarely go out for Italian food. My ex was Italian and for about 10 years I ate his mama's home cooked food and I never desired to eat Italian elsewhere after that. I still don't, really, and I miss hers all the time.

The restaurant is nice. The menu is reasonable, I think with the highest price about $14 for an entree for lunch. I think the food was good. I think everyone was satisfied, but out of four, no one raved about anything. The person who ordrered Garganelli all’ Arrabiata said hers was VERY good. Nothing impressed me and I know personally, I won't rush back. Service was very good. Water, coffee was filled often, plates were cleared in a timely fashion. All staff were very pleasant.

Here's what the pictures are:
1. Table setting
2. Caesar Salad (I found a couple of bites of brownish, wilty lettuce)
3. Zuppa del Giorno (today was Tomato, Rosemary)
4. Linguine ai Frutti di Mare
5. Confit di Pollo con Funghi (what I ate - it felt a little bland and uninspired and can I add - visually unappealing)

Here's their website:
