GATES, N.Y. (WHEC) — Veneto Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta is opening a second location on Buffalo Road.

The restaurant is called “Veneto Westside” and is opening at 1308 Buffalo Road on Thursday. It was originally scheduled to open back in April, but was delayed due to the pandemic shutdown.


"It's not ideal to open during a pandemic but we're excited to move forward," Veneto owner Don Swartz said. "We are eager to let the community know we're here. Then, by the time the state allows us to open up fully, we'll be ready. Everything will be smoothed out."

The original restaurant has been on East Avenue for almost two decades.

The Gates location will also provide a "Dinner for Two" deal, offering a large salad to share, two entrees, dessert to share and a bottle of wine for $55.

Orders will be taken over the phone and available for takeout and curbside pickup until government restrictions are lifted.
