    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!

  • Disappointing bread
    LVFoodie
    Dined on 9/18/2014
    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 Menus are outdated, so some prices are actually $1-2 higher than what it says on the menu, and no, they don't honor their advertised prices.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.

    Food quality has gone down terribly. Lasagna was solid meat with a little cheese on top drowning in sauce. Eggplant parmigiana was three THIN slices of mush. And mushroom risotto was nasty, maybe old mushrooms? Not sure when or if we will ever go back.

    The food was very good, especially the calamari appetizer. That was surprisingly tender and flavorful. It was a huge serving though, so my daughter and I couldn't finish our meal. My only complaint was that we had reservations at 6:30 and didn't get seated until after 7:00. If you are looking for reasonably priced yummy Italian food in Henderson with a great view of the strip, this is the place!

    We've been looking for a "go to" Italian dinner spot and we've found it. After a few visits we find the consistency of the food to be excellent, always on spot and a varied menu to boot. We've had the Chicken Parmiagiana, Lasagna, Lamb, shrimp and pasta and loved each dish. The spinach salad is the best. Great atmosphere and good service, a little slow at times, but overall good. Including the atmosphere the experience is very good.

    It has been a while since we've dined at Ventano's and I was surprised that the dining room was filled for a Sunday night. Both entrees were good but the lobster ravioli was swimming in sauce. The bread wasn't great; seems store bought? The window closest to our table was smudged and oily from the previous seating.
