Welcome to The Venetian Hot Plate in Port Aransas, Texas

COVID-19 Update for VHP: Dear Friends, with our 25th anniversary coming up next week I think about when we first opened our doors all of those years ago. Since then you have each become part of the Venetian Hot Plate story. I couldn’t have imagined take-out orders and social distancing for this anniversary, though I am thankful that we can still craft Italian cuisine for our South Texas community. That craft is just as we envisioned all those years ago. TWENTY FIVE, can you believe it? Through challenges big and small, hurricanes and pandemics, and spring break right-hand turns through traffic, we’re glad to be Port A Strong together with you this many years later.

We are now open for dinner takeout and limited capacity in-house seating TUE-SUN 5:00PM to close. Please see the menu on FB and website. Call in advance for reservations and for takeout. tel: 361.749.7617

Masks are required for takeout, upon arrival or when moving about the establishment.

Ciao e Grazie

Linda and the Vhp family

The Venetian Hot Plate offers quality cuisine and a quaint, yet energetic atmosphere, bringing a touch of Italy to this casual island in South Texas.

Linda and Maurice Halioua opened The Venetian Hot Plate in Port Aransas, Texas in 1995 after moving to the United States from the area of Venice, Italy.
