Little Venice’s Manicotti is unique in that it is made with homemade crepes instead of dough. The crepes are filled with a creamy ricotta filling.
When ordering pasta at Little Venice it is as fresh as if you made it at home. Little Venice’s pasta dough is made daily, however your pasta is not rolled out until you order it. Spaghetti, Macaroni and Linguine are rolled out when you order using a hand crank pasta machine designed by owner Romeo Lisio.Raviolis are made each morning with the same homemade dough then filled, with a creamy ricotta cheese filling.
“Why aren’t the meatballs round?” This is without a doubt the most common question asked by new customers. Little Venice meatballs are uniquely shaped and are often referred to as “meat logs”. The meatballs have been shaped like sausages since 1946. Aunt Carmella, the original cook, always made her meatballs long because she insisted the long shape allowed the meat to cook more evenly. Aunt Carmella didn’t like how round meatballs would burn on the outside before the middle was cooked.

NO! and contrary to many rumors there is no peanut butter or grape jelly in the sauce either. Thick, smooth and sweet Little Venice’s homemade tomato sauce is unlike anything other. The sauce recipe is a guarded family secret known only to 3 people. During the 6 plus decades that Little Venice has operated only 6 cooks have ever made the sauce. Rumors persist about the sauce recipe, but the truth is the correct recipe is not on the internet.
The restaurants unique décor is the result of Rocco “Rocky” Carulli’s passion turned obsession for the arts. Rocky would regularly travel throughout New York, Pennsylvania, and New England to find interesting works to add to the collection. Over 150 original signed paintings are currently on display at the restaurant. The collection includes work from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries.
