    The food was fantastic, as was the service. The seared scallops were delicious. Pasta dishes were all very tasty. The restaurant was very full. I would like to try to sit in the patio next time when the weather is warmer since it looks so pretty.

    Fancy restaurant that is good for a date night. I had gone for the $120 per head New Year's Eve dinner with my spouse. The food was really good. I had the mahi tuna, an arugula salad, and lamp chops. The Tiramisu for dessert was really delicious, but I found the chocolate cake a tad too sweet (full disclosure, I prefer low-sweet desserts). The Old Fashioned cocktail was yummy.

    We were welcomed the moment we walked through the doors and everyone there smiled and said hello. The staff on duty were very attentive and genuinely nice. The ambiance was perfect for an anniversary date, and the restaurant looked nice. The food selection was great and the our order tasted delicious, just like what was on the menu. The drinks we ordered were tasty, too! We’ll definitely come back and enjoy another meal here.

    We were seated outdoors as we had an under 18 in our group, we were the only ones at our table and no one else was there. The road noise was too loud. The food was very average compared to other good Italian restaurants, none of us liked our main course items atleast the appetizers were okay. They charge a ridiculous 20% gratuity on the bill on top of their overpriced rates on the menu. Overall a very disappointing experience.. would never go back here and wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone I know. And the place it’s located is also very unpleasant.

    Food was amazing. We ordered grilled octopus it’s juicy and char and other appetizer flatbread homemade sausage, basil and goat cheese I can’t get enough ate those. For main course we order braised shorts ribs and fettuccine with duck confit, portion are big for us. Service was tip top. Wish they have more option of dessert but overall it’s was pleasure experience for night out dinner

    nice place for dinner, good service, many food tastes very good, but the order of serving needs to be improved. It's better to wait for the first Appetizers to finish before serving the main meal.

    I've been going to Cucina Venti for years. Great food, atmosphere, and location. Recently, it just is not worth it. This time, my son and I had two dinners (fish and short ribs), a wine, a beer, and desert... $190!!! including an automatic tip (even though it is just 2 people).

    The food was very good, the service was OK. The prices were very high. I was not thrilled about having the gratuity included in the overall price in advance. I thought this was a condition of parties of 6 or more. Further, one of the criteria for selecting this restaurant was the fact that I would have gained 500 Opentable points. I did not receive a confirmation of this, as I usually to among check in. I confirmed with the host that I had made a reservation on Opentable. No confirmation arrived.

    We had a very nice evening at Cucina Venti yesterday. The service was excellent and very professional, and we loved our dinners. None of us had been there before. I had the branzino, and my friends had the paella, the salmon, and the lamb chops. The lamb chops were rare rather than medium rare, but other than that, the food was delicious. It’s also a lovely restaurant with a large covered outdoor space.

    Overall it was good, but not amazing. The calamari was very good, but the bruschetta was only okay. The pescatore pasta was good, but the ribeye was overpriced and a little chewy. The crème brûlée was too eggy. Also the sparkling water was extremely overpriced, $10 for at most a $2 bottle. I understand a markup is necessary, but this was just gouging. The wait staff was friendly and the service was quick. Their child policy is ridiculous and really hard to find, so the first time I tried to go after not seeing the policy we were turned away. We only came back because a friend who highly recommended it gave us a gift card, but it's really not worth getting a babysitter if you have younger kids to go and experience.

    We went to wedding dinner and the service was super. We started by ordering smoked old fashioned which was presented aesthetically. We ordered flatbreads, octopus, zucchini balls, burrata, apples and green salad, pesto tortellini, mushroom ravioli, fettuccini and duck confit. Everything was delicious and fresh. For desserts we had tiramisu and crème brûlée. Both were decent and I have had better. The server was very sweet and courteous. He offered the couple a complimentary tiramisu and lottery tickets:) Overall a wonderful experience!!

    Very good paella, and with short notice. Felt a little rushed to get out when done, otherwise it would have been all around excellent. Also, on the OpenTable website, the restaurant is identified as entrées being $30 and under, it should state $30 and over as that is the price over 50% of the entrées. They are all worth the price, but your pricing scale looks out of date and gives people the wrong impression.

    My girlfriend and I celebrated her birthday at Cucina Venti and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner! We shared the Calamari and Bruschetta as appetizers. As our main courses, I had the parpadella bolognese and she had the pesto tortellini. Each of the dishes were delicious, the service was great and the ambiance was perfect for the special occasion! We then shared chocolate layered cake that was beautifully and tastefully decorated for her birthday. Overall, we I would recommend Cucina Venti to our best of friends and family and I am looking forward to coming back soon!

    1. Restaurant does not allow substitutions - even if client has an allergy to something like asparagus... If it accompanies your choice of a main, you are stuck with it. Not even a hint of apology from wait staff. 2. Food overly spicy. Even simple sauce such as Bolognese is spiced almost to inedible level, as was the sauteed spinach and roasted potatoes. Might as well save table space and dispense with the salt/pepper shakers, since kitchen overdoes those seasonings for us... 3. Reservation practice is outrageous. Fortunately we did not have to cancel reservation and did 'show', but $30/person cancellation policy seems excessive. This was my third visit here when I travel into the area from the mid-west and so disappointing from prior ones, and it may have been my last...

    There were people in hoodies and shorts. the food was warm, not hot like the skillet it was served in (we suspect it was microwaved). The restaurant is in a less than desirable location. The wine list is way too expensive. No, we won't be back,

    I love Cucina Venti so much! The ambiance is classy, sophisticated, yet relaxed. The backyard area is intimate, and the inside has a definite energy about it. The service is always incredible - last night we had Caesar as our server and he was fantastic. The food is always wonderful - my favs are the crisp zhucchini appetizer, the pesto tortellini entree, and their lasagna is my favorite on the peninsula. Love this restaurant!
