After being an icon of Main Street, Somerville for over 30 years, the Verdicchio family has expanded their business and opened The Venetian Grille. Using traditional Italian influences and the knowledge of the chef in American cuisine, our menu is a fusion of Italian and American tradition. We have a seating capacity to seat 100 people. We have the facilities to cater for any events at our restaurant or at your location.
We want our customers to to enjoy the nostalgic atmosphere with mural art of Venice in our traditional dining area, highlighted with wooden features with a warm ambience where you will truly enjoy a unique dining experience. For lunch or dinner, whether you are celebrating one of life's momentous occasions or just feel like enjoying a home-cooked meal, The Venetian Grille is the one dining experience that has all the right ingredients.
Every Friday night is live music night from 7pm-10pm at The Venetian Grille. Our usual guitarist is Mark Bodino, who plays everything from Beatles to classical guitar to today's hits. On the occasional night that he can't be with us, we have an accomplished young man fill in. Sixteen year old David Koenig sits in and plays the same type of mix that Mark does. Other musicians join us from time to time as well, both Friday and Saturday nights, so give us a call anytime to check who will be performing.
