Business Scene: Pizzeria Venti Joins Midland's Italian Restaurant Community

MIDLAND TX | Wednesday, January 26, 2005

A taste of Italy has come to Midland with the opening of PIZZERIA VENTI in San Miguel Square, 3300 N. Midkiff Road.

Joel Fink and his wife Laura purchased the local franchise rights from the Geneva, Ill.-based company.

Fink explained that he was looking for a restaurant venture, but also one that local residents hadn't seen before.

"This was the best pizza I had ever had," he said of the restaurant's product, which is based on a recipe from Montalcino, Italy. In fact, the Finks were not only required to spend a week in Italy for a training session before being given the franchise but they import some ingredients - including the water used to make the crust - from Italy.

Pizzeria Venti features a glass case displaying 20 different kinds of pizza, which are sold by the slice or by the whole pie. They include cheese, sausage, pepperoni, mushroom, roasted garlic, green pepper, tomato & basil, onion, Chicken Vesuvio, meatball and green pepper, broccoli and "everything. Also on the menu are stuffed pizzas known as timpanini, with beef and green peppers, steak and onion, southwestern chicken, spinach and ricotta cheese, vegetarian or chicken venti. Baked pastas include cheese and spinach ravioli, lasagna, mostaccioli, manicotti, and pasta gnocchi and salads include a house salad, chicken Caesar, field greens and apples, tuna and white bean. Soups are available October 1 through April 1 and include escarole with sausage, pasta fagiole and minestrone.
