This restaurant has set the standard in authentic Italian Cuisine including full liquor service from its antique service bar.  The Venitian is known for its quality, consistency, and longevity in the community. There is an opportunity to grow this business for the next 100 years. The owners seek to find a new operator who will carry on the legacy with their own vision and style or chose to keep the homemade traditions that have been successful for the past five decades!

This restaurant triumphed over the pandemic, first by transitioning to a take-out menu and later obtaining a permit and installing a tent in the parking lot.  Now it has expanded its hours again to serve both lunch and dinner.

The seller will consider a flexible long-term lease with the option to buy with a downpayment of $100,000 and a $3,900/month base rent or an outright sale for $549,000.

Seller financing is available to a financially strong purchaser with a 50% downpayment.
