Legendary Omaha Restaurant Location is Now a Literal Location for Legends

Those who had been missing Omaha’s legendary Venice Inn and its brother owners were in for a treat on April 25. Chuck and Jerry Caniglia served as guest bartenders to celebrate the grand opening of Legends Patio Grill and Bar at Aksarban, which also featured a special performance from Omaha’s favorite blues musician Hector Anchondo.

Legends (www.legendspatiogrill.com) is a locally-owned sports-themed grill and bar now open on the location that was once Venice Inn, Chuck and Jerry’s family restaurant they sold in 2014. In honor of their guest appearance, Legends matched the tips collected and will be donating them to Heart Ministry Center, the charity the Caniglia brothers selected. Legends is also donating 10 percent of sales from that night to the charity.

Legends at Aksarben, located at 69th and Pacific, is owned by brothers Jamie and Nick Saldi who grew up in Omaha. They also attended the University of Nebraska Omaha, just down the street and were drawn to the area because of its proximity to the university and Baxter Arena. The brothers redeveloped the corner into a commercial complex called Aksarben Pointe. Legends at Aksarben is their third location. The first Legends Patio Grill and Bar is located in Cherry Hills Plaza off of I-680 and the Irvington exit.
