About La Veneta Restaurant

Italians migrated to Australia from all over, and the repertoire of Italian restaurants in Melbourne represents the diversity of traditions that exists back in the bel paese. La Veneta, as the name would suggest, specialises in the cuisine of Venice, the home region of the father of owner Annette. She chose the female form of the name – La Veneta, as opposed to Veneto – in tribute to the women of the region, and the menu brings the best that the north-eastern city has to offer, as well as a few Italian classics that we all know and love. Northern Italian cuisine is slightly heavier than that of the South, a result of the colder climate, and thus the specialities on offer at La Veneta on Mt Eliza Way include lamb cutlets with potato, chicken breast with basil pesto or their house signature, La Veneta linguine, with olive, thyme, spinach and capsicum. Take the trip out of Melbourne proper to Mount Eliza for an Italian meal to remember at La Veneta – just remember to book ahead!

Amazing vegan food with friendly staff and an excellent wine list. This is a great family dining experience or equally as good for a social night out or a romantic dinner for two.

La Veneta is our favourite restaurant not just in Mount Eliza, but in the Mornington Peninsula. The food, the service and the atmosphere are all top class and for a very reasonable price.

We had a nice table near the window, our meals were excellent. Our waitress was very professional and we discovered it was her first shift, she is a keeper and will only get better. The kitchen was one down on the night which explained the small wait between course, but the quality of the food more than made up it.

Excellent food and service as usual! Friends who dined with us enjoyed their food too. We will certainly return to dine at Annette's delightful restaurant. :-)

La Veneta experience was most enjoyable, being a vegetarian menu options can be limited, sometimes to only one choice but I had a number of dishes to choose from, the food and service were excellent and made for a great evening. 😊 Going back tonight for another try......could become my go to restaurant.

The vegan menu was limited, however the meals were totally on point. The pasta was superb and the risotto was full of fat plumpy mushrooms - delicious. The pizza wasn't quite up to the same standard being soggy in the middle. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Great vegan menu! Plenty of seating and window seating on the upper floor have a nice atmosphere. Thought some pasta dishes were slightly overpriced for what they were, but not ridiculously. The vegan pizza was extremely filling and tasted great.

Excellent food and service! Somewhat concerned that our waitress seemed to think that we were "worried". At the end of each sentence she said "no worries ". She must have said this at lease 10 times!

A gorgeous little restaurant with authentic food and fabulous service. Perfect for a date night or intimate soiree, this is a local favourite. Plus its BYO which is wonderful.
