About the restaurant
In May 2021, this 40year-old-neighborhood gem on a hill underwent a full renovation. Venetian Palace is now sporting new digs with crisp modern decor and an expanded wine list. The impetus for the revamp was new ownership. Yes, the rumors are true... Valentino’s Restaurant Group which began in NE Baltimore city has now come to Harford County!

The food is better than ever, with highlights being the seafood pasta, the jumbo lump crab cakes, the grilled lamb chops, artisan handhelds, and the breakfast choices served all day.  Whether you are dining in or picking up carry-out do not forget the dessert!

Come as you are, the staff is knowledgeable and ready to serve.  We also offer our entire menu for carryout.  For your convenience, The Venetian Italian Eatery has teamed with Doordash, GrubHub & Uber Eats.  

Buon appetito!

The wait to get a table was excessive and built a steady wall of people waiting for their tables. We were sat 40 minutes after our reservation time even though we arrived on time for our reservations. Service once we were sat was fantastic.

We made reservations. The parking was easy and led us right into the restaurant from the lot. The manager and staff was extremely attentive and got us seated right away. The salmon is delicious with the string beans. The chicken wing appetizer with the different sauces is incredible. The waiter we had was very down to earth and fun to talk to. The only issue was the Old Fashion drink my friend got. They took it right off the bill. The vibe was everything as soon as we stepped in and the music was going. Very lively place. I will be back.
