The lasagna was yummy!!!!
I visited Ventano's before a concert and thoroughly enjoyed the foo, service, and atmosphere. Whether you are a table for one or ten, they will take good care of you! Enjoy!!!!

Rich but delightful
We always enjoy shrimp on the stone and the calamari is the best. Dishes are rich but yummy. I don't think I have ever finished my dinner.

Great food, wine, view & ambience!
We quite enjoyed our first visit here, and will return often. It's a striking room with Mediterranean decor, well-spaced tables, and nice view of Las Vegas strip.
Wine & food menus were broad and interesting, and execution outstanding. My wife is in the wine business and hard to impress, but thought wine prices quite fair and their featured 2010 Malbec a great find. Hostess was very quick, gracious and attentive, and food preparation was excellent. Our only complaint was slow & erratic table service for a fairly quiet weeknight, maybe their "first string" had the night off.

Celebrate in Style
Just did a birthday party for my 90 year old mother at Ventano. They handled our group of 19 that ranged from 10 months to 94 years old with grace and style. The varied menu allowed for our meat eaters (who loved the honeyed ribs) to the vegans (fabulous eggplant parmigiana) to enjoy a special occasion immensely. Started with tasty shrimp on the stone to appease the hunger and the kitchen managed to get everyone's 'off the menu' selections to the table at the same time ... marvelous. Our guests LOVED the food and the service.

This is just one of those
This is just one of those special restaurants that is always an excellent experience from the hostess greeting to service to food to view. The Las Vegas area is home to many top notch restaurants and this one is a locals favorite. Away from the strip and always enjoyable. You can not go wrong with this casual gem. Serving sizes are big, make sure to try the shrimp on the stone appetizer.

As always, food was excellent. Service was good. We would & did recommend the restaurant to others! Loved being able to reserve on line !

Amazing Eggplant Parm
The title of the review says it all. The eggplant parm was made with ricotta cheese and it was very good. I had veggies with mine, but others chose pasta. Great choice either way. The view is nice, the staff is pleasant, and the food is delicious.

Amazing place with a view!
Ventano's is truly a neighborhood gem! You won't find it on the strip or in some over priced casino setting. Instead, this delicious food and excellent menu is in a little neighborhood in Henderson. Great lighting, an AMAZING view of the city, courteous staff, makes this a great place to go no matter your agenda.
6/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great neighborhood spot.
Want to have a nice dinner but don't want to travel to the strip, then Ventano's is the place to go. Very nice neighborhood Restuarant.

Solid Italian Food Well-Prepared
Ventano's is a large restaurant in Henderson that serves excellent Italian food mostly to an older crowd and families, although the Italian food is as good as most higher-profile places on the Strip.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great view and good food
If you get the outside seating on the patio at night, it is a good view of the strip. The food was above average for Italian food, nothing spectacular. Good romantic setting if you want to come here with a date.
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Dining Experience
The food is fantastic (think 'melt-in-your rib-eye" or a suace so good you'd eat it on it's own!) and the service is outstanding. A knowledgeable, well-trained wait-staff can absolutely "make" an evening. The staff at Ventano is terrific!
6/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food and service is always consistantly outstanding. I love thyis resturant
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food Great Service & Great pe
I brought my wife to this olace for her 50th birthday dinner. We both loved the place for great food, wines and location. We enjoyed 4th of July fire works from our seats.
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Last Friday was our third time at Ventano and it was consistently good. We were seated fairly quickly, service was courteous and fast, and the food was excellent. The menu is varied, with a good selection and more choice than at many Italian restaurants. Portions are plentiful and we always have enough for a second meal with the boxed leftovers.
The view out over the patio is superb. As the sun sets, it shines directly in the eyes of anyone facing that direction, but the staff usually closes the blinds promptly. I want to come back when it's cool enough to sit outside for an even better view.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
what a view
found this restaurant on trip advisor. They were right about the scenic view ... outstanding. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Mixed reviews on food. Loved the salad dressing on the house salad. Cheese ravioli was very good, as was chicken parm. Diner who had veal parm thought it was just OK. Fourth member of party disappointed when she ordered penne pasta and it came out with spaghetti instead. Mistake was addressed rtight away, but had to wait 10 minutes for new order, which meant everyone else was well into their dinner by the time her meal arrived. Overall I would definitely recommend. Food mixup happens sometimes no matter where you dine.

Delicious every time
Great food no matter what time of day. Wonderful service. Beautiful area/view, especially at sunset !!
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thats Italian !
Made a reservation online through open table with only a hour lead time no problem !
Had a nice booth by the window, service was very attentive bus boy brought us water, bread, oil and vinegar dip with in minutes of being seated.
Eat a lot of Italian food and this was has good as I have had, we were pretty simple though salad, spaghetti, and chicken parmigana. I like to test the basics on a first time visit, I will have no problem coming back for something a little more creative from the kitchen.
Generous portions, great service, good price value and a nice view of the strip. Definitely recommend
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful strip view and on our eveving, an incredible sunset!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great little gem that we happened
Great little gem that we happened to find. We are from out of town but every time we come to Vegas we eat here .
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had my 70th birthday at Ventano last Saturday. Had a great time with my wife and 4 of my friends. We really enjoyed the food and the service. Arnauld, the Chef, came to our table and mused us with his charm and humor. Definitely going back again.

Ventano's never disappoints
Ventano's never disappoints us. Its a relaxed atmosphere with top notch service.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, wonderful view of the Las Vegas valley, superior service, Ventano is well worth the price. I would highly recommend the "shrimp on a stone" as an appetizer, but if you prefer, the chef will gladly do "scallops on a stone." Just because one of the dishes is prepared with a certain sauce don't be afraid to ask for a different sauce. I prefer the miso sauce on the fish and my wife prefers the sweet chili sauce. For dessert try the bananas foster pie, unbelievably delicious.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ventano's is consistently
Ventano's is consistently good, the food, the service and the view. We will go back again and again. Brought someone with us and it was their first time and they feel the same way we do.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Generally good, but . . .
Spare ribs were too sweet - not a good choice in an Italian restaurant.
Lamb chops were overcooked - as on 2 previous visits but staff redid them beautifully.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ventano's was great. A little on the pricey side for italian, but the food was great and the wine list had some reasonable bottles to choose from. We sat on the patio, which had a great view of the sunset and the strip, but ended up being a bit warm. Overall, the service was great, the food delicious, and the price was reasonable. The portions were very large as well. I don't think any of us finished our main course. I would definitely go again or suggest it to a friend.

Ventano Exceeds the Expectations
I live in Aliante and make the drive happily as I know that everything is going to be perfect. I have been going to Ventano for over 7 years and repeatedly they make that special something that makes me wish I'd never leave. Whether it be a combination of the decor, the view, the food and/or the FANTASTIC wait staff (Carlos was our head waiter) I anticipate my next visit. It is more than apparent that time is used in receiving, prepping, preparing and presenting the food because when it arrives the portions are more than what is expected off-Strip and usually need a box to take home. This time I had a party of 13 to celebrate my birthday and of course everything was picture perfect...thank you as always Ventano and especially Carlos.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Place In Town
This place has the best food around town or anywhere for that matter. The service is always great! The view is spectacular.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ventano never disappoints.
We enjoyed a special "farewell to Las Vegas" dinner at Ventano. Partly because they have one of the best views of the strip, and partly because the quality of their food and service is always the best! It was a great way to toast a farewell to Vegas and remember the many other occasions we've shared at this first class eatery.
We now move on to be new eating adventures in the Phoenix area. But we will remember with great fondness the taste treats we've shared at Ventano. We will miss you!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing for our anniversary
The gang at Ventano's can't be beat. We went to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Between Carlos taking excellent care of us, Mike finding us the perfect bottle of wine, the food being fantastic there couldn't have been better place to celebrate. Thanks for all your great service and care.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place. I visit it for my special occassions...Anniversary, Birthdays, Christmas Eve dinner.....
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food and service! While the menu items are excellent, it's the chef's daily specials that are out of this world! I can't recall the last time my wife and I ate at Ventano and didn't have one of the daily specials. We like different sauces on our fish dishes, my wife prefers the sweet chili and I prefer the miso. Not a problem! You may order the sauce you prefer on any of the dishes. Don't like the sides? No problem, they'll glad substitute another side (at no charge).
For truly outstanding service ask for Carlos. He's attentive without being obtrusive and he knows the dishes and sauces.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
You have to try it at least once...
This was my 4th visit to this restaurant. Which I had high regards for. This last visit not so much. While the staff was friendly and helpful, the food was excellent but there was something missing. I rave about the view from this place but the blinds were drawn as there was an event going on in the banquet room. The food is always very good here, but this time my daughters food was way too hot for her to eat. It was still steaming as we asked for it to be boxed up. 20 min later :( It is a bit pricey for Italian Food but again everything that I have ever ate here has been good. You have to try it at least once. Go right before sunset and hopefully you will be able to see the sun go down over the strip.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing View in the Neighborhood
Long time favorite. great food, amazing view, great service and all for a deep discount to strip pricing.

Spectacular view, plus best baby back honey ribs on the planet!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, great service
The Owner and Chef are in the dining area ensuring all is up to standards. It is wonderful to have them come to your table for a quick chat. The food is abundant. The service is excellent. The view from the patio is wonderful. We would definitely return.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Meal and Service.
The food is always great! It can be prepared any way you want or need it done. The staff and the owner are always on top of their guests and try to make you feel as a welcomed guest. Keep up the good work!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
not my first time
Been here before and will go again. Arancine (rice balls) are closest I have found to what I've had in New York. Food is fresh and flavors are blended perfectly. Great menu selection and even had my red sangria. Service was excellent. Will definitely go again. One of our favorite places.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love this restaurant. We always try to go for special occasions. Mike will make you a great martini!
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful food and service, great neighborhood spot. Only downside was they were jammed with large parties and courses came out of order, we were party of 2. I hope they value those who aren't part of a group of 20. We will be back soon!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM

Greeter and waiter provided excellent service. Food and drinks were promptly served
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM

11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM

11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have been to Ventano's numerous times and it keeps getting better and better. Brought a friend this time around and we all enjoyed our meals and the ambiance. We will be back again shortly.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was a special occasion - the one year anniversary for daughter and her boyfriend. I recommended your placet (I work for Zappos and you are one of our favorite places.) My daughters' comment was "Wow Mom, you were actually right! The food was great, the girls who took our picture were a lot of fun and the view was fantastic.. This is now my picky Italian boyfriend's new favorite place!"
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything here was really good except the service. There seems to be a possible staffing shortage so expect to wait a bit.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great basic Italian pasta dishes and some decent specialty items. Try the Spaghetti Bolognese - it's excellent!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a great experience.
We have been to Ventanos several times now. The food is always amazing and the service is the best in town. The staff is friendly and always make us feel right at home. Mike goes out of his way to come over to the table and welcome us. Whenever we have family and friends visit from out of town, we bring the to Ventanos. I can't think of another restaurant that compares to Ventanos. Besides the food and service, the ambiance and view are also amazing. Plus, it is so close to home. Ventanos will have our business for years to come.
