Amy and Marco Stevanoni are proud of their dedication to the history, culture and tradition of Veneto, Italy, at VENETO Ristorante Italiano. The Stevanonis offer wine, food and hospitality from the mountainous region to provide a transportive atmosphere. The softly lit interior is decorated with dark furniture and intricate rugs. Italian folk songs float over the sound of popping corks throughout the evening. Together, the Stevanonis bring the true Veneto experience to Salt Lake City.
“The smoky ricotta from Italy truly takes you on a journey, giving you a very different experience.”
The menu changes with the seasons, using a combination of locally sourced and imported ingredients. The spring menu includes
dishes such as Gnocchi Sbatui, which is hailed as the ultimate Veneto mountain comfort food. “The smoky ricotta from Italy truly takes you on a journey, giving you a very different experience,” Amy says. “It is a dish served and made in only a very small area in Veneto—even in Italy people travel to the mountains to experience this special dish.”
VENETO’s snug kitchen functions like an artisan’s workshop. Every hand is essential, the team relying on method, timing and trust in each other to construct an authentic culinary experience. Quality components are carefully considered: Cuts of tender Wagyu balance atop rainbow carrots and a fennel salad. Steam from fresh Branzino entices hungry patrons through the swinging door to the dining room. “Our Piemontese beef is an exceptional example of how and why Italians eat meat,” Amy says. “[It’s] lean, simple and full of flavor—exactly how beef should be prepared and served, without the distraction of pepper, butter or any other sauces.”
