Venezia's Pizzeria is a family-owned and operated series of restaurants in the Valley that incorporates the finest flavors of Italy and the fun and nostalgia of New York style pizzerias into their business. Founders Frank and Clara have retired and son Domenick Montanile has taken over the delicious Venezia's empire with the commitment to food quality, devotion to outstanding authentic flavors and a promise to deliver the best in Montanile Italian family recipes.
One of Venezia’s daily specials is a delicious way to discover Venezia’s New York Style pizzas and still leave your wallet intact!
“We basically have 8 different specials for under $8. The nice thing about that is that it also includes a drink,” says Domenick Montanile.
