About Venecia

For food that keeps you coming back and hospitality that makes you feel right at home, Venecia is your new go-to neighborhood restaurant! Venicia is proud to serve the Gastonia community, specializing in fresh Greek and Italian food.

Where It All Began

To quote Venecia’s recent write-up in the Gaston Gazette: “When I first started, I started in Manhattan and New York with Italian restaurants,” explained Said Graber, who partners with Abdu Arafa to form Veneica. “Everybody started the same way. If you want to own a business, you have to start from the bottom.” The pair has earned a great deal of experience through the years and it shows, we think you’ll agree! 

Come see what the buzz is about, Gastonia!

We’re Venecia Italian & Greek New York Style Pizzeria and we do two things better than anyone else in town. That’s hospitality and great food!

Venecia’s Story

Located in the former Shogun building, owners Abdu Arafa and Said Graber both possess culinary expertise that first began to form in childhood, as they grew up in Brooklyn, New York, a great place to learn about food! Their career culminates with the opening of Venecia, Gastonia’s newest addition!
