Venturi

Serving Italian pizza made with the finest ingredients.

Reviewed By J.J. G

Excellent Neapolitan pizza. You need to open minded if you never eaten this type of pizza before. Go with the margherita pizza. The pizza is not cut so use your knife to cut into four pieces. Then it's easier to pick up and fold as opposed to using a fork and knife. They are 10 to 12 inch pizzas so for two people, I would split a salad and one pizza. Great place for a date.

Good beer, nice industrial decor, reasonable prices. Just went for a beer and desert after pizza elsewhere . Only one option, they should consider more, but the desert was great says my wife. I had a flight of beers. I really liked the bad wolf. Goshen, for some reason, is a stout and IPA beer town. No matter where I went, that's what I found. I'm from WI so i welcomed the change. Nice microbrewery, I be back when my traveltakes me through northern Indiana.

We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. They have a big menu selection and the portions are large. Should not leave hungry. My family of 4 can eat for around 30$ so food is priced well too. I really enjoy the Grecian chicken.

Reviewed By Hockeymom2024 - Plainfield, IL

My family has a lake house near by and for the last several years I have wanted to try this place. Well we finally made it last night and we were not disappointed. Our party of five started with tapas- olive tapenade, coconut shrimp, stuffed dates, and crab cakes. They were all excellent. We then split the grilled peach salad. This was my favorite. Love anything with goat cheese. Definitely enough to share. I had the scallops special entree and it was delicious. Very nice service and stylish atmosphere. There is a bar next door as well that looked fun. Will be back. Only complaint is that it was on the pricy side.

Rosy and her staff were extraordinarily helpful and patient in explaining their offerings. The place is centrally located, clean, and tasteful. And, the food is AMAZING! If you find yourself anywhere near Goshen, Indiana, go here.
THANK YOU, Rosy, for being so friendly, welcoming, and warm. And, for walking us to the Back Alley Brewery when we asked you on the street "why are all the bars closed on Monday afternoon?"

Right downtown, the Constant Spring is a handy local spot. Food is good. Selections are new variations on some old favorites. Just be prepared for salty bill. Two of us shared a burger and macaroni with two drinks for $40 including tip. A little pricey but we'll be back.

Jo Jo's Pretzels

Reviewed By aryamydog - Goshen, Indiana

I lLOVE Jo Jo's pretzels! I have tasted others' pretzels because they had a special, but Jo Jo's are so much better. They are crisp and buttery on the outside and soft, but not too soft, on the inside. I'd rather eat them than a candy bar. My favorite is the whole wheat which I eat without extras because I just want to enjoy the flavor of the pretzel.

Hacienda Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By loonqueen - Harrison, Michigan

Service was great. Meals were overpriced for ,mediocre Mexican food. Sour cream and guacamole had an extra charge and you only got a dab. Server never informed us of extra charges. My friend ordered cheese sauce and when we got the bill we were shocked at the price. These restaurants are a chain and affiliated with LaSenorita in Michigan. Don't care for either. Blandest salsa for chips and chips were tasteless.

Hoppers Pike Street

Reviewed By Michael L - Port Saint Lucie, Florida

I disliked Hopper's from the March visit, but our group of 10 wanted to go. I must say my opinion totally changed from negative to a positive. Our server Jerri was OUTSTANDING. She had all of us in stitches and still served in a professional manner.
All meals were prepared perfectly...ie Chicken, Burgers and Shrimp. On a constructive note. I love to buy T-Shirts from a nice business. I was told the office is closed at 5:00 so no shirts are available. Humm? I hope that was also a joke. As a test, I have family in the area, and will have then ask for a T-Shirt before 5:00pm. Oh Yes, They were extremely busy. Patrons were waiting to be be seated.
