Diner Reviews
  • "The food is excellent. The decor is relax and warm. The service was very professional. I will return to try other dishes. Perfect for business diners. Excellent advice on the wine."

  • "A sure bet for a business meeting. Welcoming, accommodating (the host recharged my lunch companion's phone for her!), great menu, efficient service. Beautifully prepared 3-course meal. I reserved my table online. Glad I did because the house was packed - and we were still in and out in about an hour. Loved it."

  • "The food, service and ambience are outstanding. The pastas are all made in house and it makes a difference. The service was excellent, they helped make recommendations from the food and wine menus. A gem in old montreal!"

  • "Absolutely delightful and delicious dining in the heart of the Old City. Don't know how many times we've walked by without noticing Venti - won't happen any longer!! All food made on premises, unfailingly kind staff and very reasonable prices combine to produce an exceptional experience."

  • "My fifth lunch there; great Italian regional food, good (private imports) wine selection, but reds could be served cooler. Smart, knowledgable staff. Perfect size portions (not humungus), good easy pricing, very good espresso; what's not to like ? Noise. Acustics of a pretty room with all surfaces hard make the sound bounce off all of them. This time it was actually decent; they said they were working on it. When they fix it the very good restaurant will become great."

  • "Had a half portion of the gnocchi, it was delicious and quite enough. Had the squid salad to start which was fresh, lots of shaved fennel and lots of grilled squid. Unfortunately it was quite rubbery. Nice glass of wine, good service. Nothing spectacular though."

  • "It was not my first visit at Venti. The service was a disaster, 30 min to get appetizers plus 30 more for main course that arrived cold for most at the table. However, the food at the right temperature was very good. To continue on the nightmare, the 2 bottles of wine ordered were out of stock. They offer us a more expensive alternative and did not offer to match the price with the one originally ordered. A first for me. To finish, we realized that the bad service was cause by the fact that all the staff was taking care of a group of CFL football players. They had great service and dishes served promptly. After 370 $ for a lunch for 7, no apologize or any form of compensation, I have decided that it was my last visit so as my guests."

  • "Venti has been a favourite of mine for a little while now. When I want to treat myself to something nice, I know I won't be disappointed here. Strike up a conversation with the server to find out exactly what is happening with the menu that night. They will gladly accommodate and suggest something that you are sure to like. The charcuterie and cheeses are always an enjoyable way for me to start my evening."

  • "I made reservations based on a friend's recommendation. Glad I did. The apps set the tone. The Tuscan chicken liver crostini was the best! Creamy and flavorful. All members of my party were very impressed with their meal choices. Fresh ingredients and prepared with great detail. Portions are perfect. Not your classic 55 gallon drum of pasta if that is what you are looking for. Service was top notch. Our server offered insight and was patient. Brought drinks quickly and no one sat with an empty cocktail for long. Eating space was very comfortable. Plenty of room at our table and you are not on top of other guests. Great modern décor in Old Montreal."

  • "It was my 10th time that I go to that restaurant, but this time with a winning person in my "free lottery". She really like her experience and for me it was great as usual. They've change again their menu and some of the things that I was taking (are not there anymore). Still the menu has not over 25 choices or more...you gonna have something that you will like for sure."

  • "A festive atmosphere with hats, feathers and horns along with welcoming staff greeted us - the food was a fitting feast for saying goodbye to the old year and wringing in the new with the 4 course prix fixe and wonderful wine pairings - service was generous and spirited"

  • "Celebrated my wife's birthday with family and everyone was impressed with their meal. Simple yet really great tasting food always with a twist. Food is fresh, service is friendly and wine list is very good too. Great place to dine in Old Montreal for lunch or dinner in a cozy restaurant. Highly recommend this place. Buon appetito."

  • "The food was very authentic Italian. We had the antipasto for 2 but it easy could have fed 4. The rigatoni was handmade and delicious, the veal succulent (and enormous) and the olive oil served for dipping was very flavorful. I would definitely recommend. The only drawback was the cement flooring which was wet due to melting snow, but this did not affect our dining experience."

  • "The gnocchis that I ate were sublime; they were as good as those that I had in Italy a few years ago. I was delighted. I will certainly eat at this restaurant again."

  • "This was my third visit to Venti, and it has to have been my least favourite. My mother, my boyfriend and I each ordered the cod, which we all agreed was WAY too salty, it was as if the chef dumped the entire salt bottle on the fish. However, the other two dishes that were ordered at our table consisted of veal and lamb, and both of those dishes were very well executed and delicious. Other than the fish being too salty, service and atmosphere were great as always."

  • "Food was delicious with interesting choices. The special, pork chop with apples and raisins and roasted root veggies was very tasty, perfect for a winter's night dinner. The lamb shank was great and cooked perfectly. Crostini with wild mushrooms were a mouth-watering start to a good meal. For dessert, the apple and squash pie was exceptional, a great taste combination. The service was friendly and attentive. The noise level was high, but that's the trade-off for a two-century stone building. Will definitely come back and have no hesitation in sending my food-loving friends to Venti."

  • "Knowing that Mike Forgione was no longer associated with Venti, i ventured down and found that not only were his famous meatballs no longer on the menu, but other dishes were missing that pizzazz Mike was known for. My pasta dish was also served at a rather tepid temperature. Service was excellent but unfortunately the food was not even close."

  • "We had an excellent time at Venti. I had been there for lunch and decided this would be a great place for my boyfriend's birthday. We had the Tasting Menu and it was absolutely delicious. Our waitress was great as well as everyone who served us. The only downfall, the noise. However, as we left, one of our waiters did mention they were changing the floors very soon and that this will help with the noise level. It will be even better the next time we come!! Thanks for the amazing food !"

  • "A gem of a restaurant in Old Montreal tucked away on a side street from busy McGill street. The menu offers an array of choices from various italian regions with everything freshly prepared - you can watch the brigade at work on the bar side while sipping one of the signature "aperos". Service is attentive if a little pressed. Gnocchis and fish are wonderful with a nice selection of wine. Can be noisy when full."

  • "This is THE most affordable high end restaurant in the old Mtl, the food is very very high quality. I've eaten the best fish (Marlin) I've ever had in my life. Pastas are delicious... And the prices are ridiculous, bellow 25$ for a lunch with apetizer and desert. Ambience is very luxuous with stone walls from the very old buiding. Overall a great experience !!!"
