    Based upon prior visits, we hadn't been to Ventano for a long time because we felt the food was just OK. However, this time I can say that our meals were excellent and abundant. There was so much on our plates that we took some home for lunch the next day. All three of us in our party thought our dishes were delicious. The service was excellent. We will definitely return to Ventano more often.

    I was extremely impressed with this place as soon as I walked on the door. Although, finding the door was not as quick as I'd hope for it to be. The entrance was placed in an interesting location, facing a gas station. The parking is behind the building but they had handicapped parking right by the entrance, ask that's a plus for disabled customers. I came in during an odd time (between lunch and dinner) on a Friday and it was empty. It did make me second guess myself for choosing this place. I didn't see a hostess so I walked in further (Sign said: Please Seat Yourself). Service from the waiter and the other gentleman were excellent, no wait and very attentive. Food was delicious, plentiful, and rich. Price was decent. Running out of room.

    Our dining experience started out great. The restaurant has a great view. The food came out in a reasonable time and very hot. Food was great! But after we got our food the server(s) disappear. No one came by our table to fill our glass, check to see how the food was, or clear our plate. Our server was busy in the wine cooler looking for a wine they must not have had. It was 30 mins until we saw him again. I would have loved dessert but not after that long wait. We got our bill and left instead.

    Ventano is always one of our favorite places to go. Patio view is spectacular. We love to take out of towers there. Our most recent visit was on Halloween and the servers were in super heros costumes. Our server Michael "the Hulk" was great. He even took pictures with us!! The food is always fabulous!

    Enjoyed the dining experience here at Ventano, excellent staff and service. The food was awesome! Check out the menu, you will find some surprises in it that you don't find in many Italian restaurants. The only negative thing to say about it, and why I couldn't give it 5 stars: the table we had, while nice and cozy, was right outside the kitchen, and it was noisy. All in all though, a very pleasurable dining experience.

    For a last minute reservation it turned out to very nice. I would have preferred a table outside but that I'm sure you need to book in advance. We really enjoyed the food, the servers were very attentive and polite. The only thing that I can say is that It is a bit noise. I really prefer restaurants that have a quieter softer feel.

    Hard to find for an out of towner. All menu items were not available. I thought the prices did not match the food. $18.50 for chicken Alfredo? It was delicious don't get me wrong but 20 bucks? Waiter could have come around more often as our glasses were empty more than once.

    We have been making Ventano's part of our Vegas experience for years. We were very disappointed this year. Went on a Sunday night. Got to sit outside, great! But, what happened to our favorite Italian restarurant in LV? The clams were ok. My husbands chicken marsala, well, he couldn't eat it. The chicken seemed like processes stuffed and tastless. While my ribs were a huge portion, and should have been great, given the description, they weren't. Need more flavor. Please fix things up before our next visit.

    First time at Ventano, which is now a shame considering our 6 years in Henderson. My wife and I decided to go for the basics, I chose the Homemade Lasagna (Did the chef go home and make it?) and my wife had the Spaghetti Alla Bolognese. Both dishes were very good. We also loved the selection of splits on the wine list. The service was very attentive and the bread (served in a paper bag?), Caprese and main course were timed perfectly. I also love it when the chef comes out of the kitchen to check on your satisfaction with the food after you have had the opportunity to form an opinion. And all with a great view of the strip. We will definitely be coming back and we want to try the patio with the view before it gets too cold!

    Ventano is a pretty restaurant, with spectacular views of the Las Vegas Strip, especially from the patio. The meal was OK, but we were both disappointed with the bread served. It looked and tasted like something they took out of a package of frozen breadsticks, overwhelming chemical flavor.

    I have been to Ventanos on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The menu is extensive and they always have interesting specials. On this occasion took out a Vegan friend for a casual get together. I had the shrimp special and my wife the snapper special. Both were prepared to perfection. Our friend had a pasta arabica and loved it. Service is always good. The view of the Las Vegas valley at sunset is always awe inspiring. I think Ventanos is a restaurant that can satisfy many tastes and has become my "go to" restaurant when taking people out for a first dining experience in Henderson.

  • Average "chain"-style dining
    AriaVIP
    Dined on 8/24/2014
    The food here is very average - about the calibre you would expect from a chain restaurant (although I don't know if it is actually a chain). Salads are overdressed, pastas are heavy and oversauced, food is slightly oversalted. Service is friendly, if a bit clueless and sometimes slow. Menus are outdated, so some prices are actually $1-2 higher than what it says on the menu, and no, they don't honor their advertised prices. Ambiance is reasonably nice. Coffees and wines are average. Portions are generous and may last you a couple of meals. OK, all in all. Worth it if you are hungry and don't have a better option in mind.

    Have not been to Ventano's for quite some time since earlier experiences were mediocre. Well something has definitely changed for the better. The three of us ordered a variety of things from chicken to tortellini to the filet mignon special. All were terrific and portions were generous enough that we took home what we could not finish. Happy to have a local restaurant of this quality. It was a busy Saturday night and our server had his hands full. Will go back during the week to try the eggplant.

    We were on a recent business trip to Vegas, but wanted dinner somewhere that was more of a locals' restaurant. We found Ventano's through reviews on both TripAdvisor and Yelp and it sounded like a place we'd love... and it is! Food, service, ambiance and views were spectacular. We recommend the shrimp on stone and the mussels for apps. I had the cioppino and it was good, sorry to say I don't remember what my wife ordered. You receive complimentary bread and it's great too! We were too stuffed to enjoy desert, but I bet it's great also.
