About Ristorante Veneziano

Having started life as a humble pizzeria-takeaway, Ristorante Veneziano on Birmingham’s High Street in King’s Heath has firmly established itself as the home of authentic Italian food in the Midlands. The restaurant has gone to strength to strength under the guardianship of head chef Salvatore, while the kitchen demands the highest standards from its producers so the menu adapts to what is freshly available that day, and the wine list is a homage to the vineyards of the bel paese.

Further Information

We at Quandoo love a good pizzeria – after all, pizza is in the canon of takeaway greats. Yet, what the team at Ristorante Veneziano have done in evolving their simple High Street pizza joint into one of the undisputed Italian classics in Birmingham’s King’s Heath means we’ll forgive the move away from a purely pizza-based model. The kitchen focuses on serving Italian classics like carpaccio di manzo, linguine marinara, involtini di pollo and, yes, pizze.

The pedigree of head chef Salvatore, a native of Italy’s Varese, is peerless. He spent seven years working his way through the ranks at Milan’s L’Novecento restaurant, before moving over to Paris’ Convivium as well as stints in Manchester’s San Carlos and London’s Lidia before setting at Birmingham’s Ristorante Veneziano. His experience, then, with Italian cooking, ingredients and techniques is unparalleled. The restaurant welcomes diners for dinner service Tuesday-Saturday from 5pm and for lunch or dinner from 12pm on Sunday. The dining room is small and intimate and fills up with King’s Heath’s High Street locals quickly; therefore a reservation is usually a good idea.

Been here quite a few times over the last 5 years - never disappoints. We have 5 star treatment on my sons birthday where we all 'treated to' by the owner. Food lovely, very good ambience :)

We're a couple who enjoy good food and have eaten all round UK. We went on Christmas Eve and enjoyed good food (Venetian veal livers and chicken pasta) with really friendly, helpful serving staff. My partner stated it was best Italian meal she's had in a long time. Superb start to the holidays, thank you very much Ristorante Veneziano!

Had a wonderful meal at this restaurant last night. It is a little gem on Kings Heath high street, once inside youfeel like you could actually be in Italy. Couldn't ask for more from staff, we were served our delicious rose wine in chilled glasses and had a basket of fresh, warm bread and olives served whilst we perused the menu. The food we was served was freshly cooked, no pre cooked, reheated food here. And the fillet steak I ordered was exquisite, the most tender, melt in the mouth steak I have ever had. Would highly recommend. I will definitely be back.

We had a very good experiance dinning at Ristorante Veneziano. Food tastes great, the service was not perfect, the waiter was not familiar with the menu, obviously he was new guy, but still the most important for a waiter is to know the menu in details and to be able to give sugestions to the guests. Environment is nice and friendly. Deffinetely the owner needs to work more with his staff.

We had such a lovely meal at ristorante veneziano! The staff were so friendly, this is a real hidden gem! I've walked past the resturant a 1000 times on the high street, not realising caspian pizza (that used to be there) had closed and that this had opened. I'll be recommending it to everyone anyway so I would definitely recommend it to anyone considering going. The best calamari I've ever had, thank you for such a wonderful dining experience

Very friendly and hard working staff. There was a large party upstairs on the night I went so I suspect service was slower than usual. Food was good, starters outstanding. I had salmon with prawns my son had scallops in a white sauce. I had fillet steak for main and I asked for medium to well done. It was more just touching medium so slightly under cooked for me. Fish dishes, pasta dishes and rissoto looked excellent. Will definitely be returning.

Fantastic night out! The staff are welcoming and friendly, they were able to cater to all the dietary requirements within our group. The food was all freshly cooked to a very high standard and was excellent value for money. The restaurant was very busy but service was not compromised and staff remained attentive throughout the night. Would highly recommend this place, I'll certainly be returning!

They had no record of our booking when we arrived. Were abel to fit us in later, but effectively w booked for 7.30 and got our starters at just after 9 oclock. The initial greeting was less than helpful but once we returned after checking they now had a table, the service was slow because they also had a large birthday party to server, but generally good. The food is very good, basically a poor start but they recovered well enough.

Went for Sunday lunch, the 7 of us where the only customers...they opened especially for us. Great atmosphere, got to meet the chef and he personally explained the menu to us. Food was amazing, service was great. Will definitely be going back again and again.

A great little Italian restaurant, that only suffers slightly due to its location on the high street. Service and the food was excellent, carpaccio and the calamari especially. A great night out and reasonably priced( a three course meal for four including two bottles of wine and Proscecco £160). Will definitely be revisiting.

A true Italian gem in Birmingham. Excellent food and wonderful service, always a special night! This is how a real resturant should be and what every romantic meal out should feel. We adore this place and have already booked for St. Valentine's Day!

Good local restaurant with a nice atmosphere. The food is to a high quality and there always seems plenty of it sometime too much. Service level is just right between attentive but not too in your face. Good value for the price.
