Thank You, Venice Inn, For All The Great Years

Eli Caniglia’s Vencie Inn is closing their doors. This Omaha staple located at 6920 Pacific street has seen its heyday come and go. Brothers and owners, Jerry and Chuck Caniglia have accepted a developer's offer and will be closing their restaurant on May 3. According to the Omaha World Herald, Jerry states “It has been a joy to serve those customers for all those years. And we would not have survived without our loyal staff.” Luckily, there is still time to partake in your menu favorite before this love story ends.
