Good Ambience and service. Zucchini cakes were good. I ordered Seafood Paella which was little bland. Mushroom flatbread was okay.

Outdoor dining in the time of COVID. It’s different, of course, but simply a way to block out street noise, especially near the freeway is something that can be partially mitigated. Food was superb and although you missed out on trying to make the night extra special (it was our anniversary after all), the night out was worth it

Fabulous restaurant...one of my favorites in the South Bay Area. Consistently excellent in both food quality and service. Also...the menu is varied and never boring. Highly recommend!

Delicious food, good service. I recommend the salads. I don't find salads so delicious anywhere in this area. The flatbreads are awesome.

Fettuccine duck confit is yummy. Seafood paella has abundant seafood but relatively little rice & too much sauce. Service is very attentive & restaurant decor is nice. Worth the money!

Loved the restaurant's ambiance and staff. The food was delicious. My only minor criticism was that they charge a $35 corkage fee which was not listed on the menu. I've never paid more than $25 for a corkage fee anywhere, so $35 was a bit of sticker shock. Other than that, no complaints.

We come to Cucina Venti every couple of weeks. The food is always excellent and the service exceptional. John is an amazing waiter! Friendly, knowledgeable, attentive (not smothering) and lots of fun!

Drinks are awesome! Natasha makes one of the best Old Fashioned cocktails in the Bay Area.

My wife and I always feel like family--and we love the patio area.

Only negative is that the coffee/espresso machine has not been working for the past two months!! What!?!? Very disappointing not to be able to have a nice cup of coffee or cappuccino to finish off an excellent meal.

5 stars for food, drinks and service. 0 stars for the lack of coffee. Make a reservation now! You'll be glad you did!!

Emma/Dominico paired as our excellent hosts. My guy had Duck confit with mushrooms - he ate every delicious bite. I had the lasagna, baked with just the right amount of cheese and spice. Well done! We’ll be back!

This was our first time at this restaurant, and it was fantastic. John was our waiter. He was so nice and attentive. Our food was piping hot and delicious. I had the chocolate cake for dessert which was out of this world. We will definitely be coming back to this charming restaurant!

We shared a Mediterranean Sea bass dish and the Ceasar salad. The sea bass was fresh and the salad was no soggy but crunchy. They also have Illy coffee.

The food in general is pretty good. But the Tiramisu is really disappointing. It’s not authentic at all, and the flavor is not that good either. But other than the dessert, everything else that we ordered is great! The fried calamari is really tasty, and we also ordered duck confit pasta which is fantastic.

Lovely outdoor patio with little road noise and good social distancing. The food was very good, but a bit pricey for lunch. The service was excellent. I look forward to returning for the wonderful octopus salad!

Oct. 9, Friday, was my dad’s day of remembrance, his first death anniversary. Since the Covid 19 pandemic lockdown, last night was my first time to see my siblings, in laws, nephews and my mom and our family’s first time to dine together. Appreciate the staff of Cucina Venti and our server, Eduardo, for the excellent service and outdoor ambiance that my family experienced. Of course, the food were deliciously prepared. We adhered to CDC guidelines as well. Thank you very much and I give ten stars to Cucina Venti!

Fabulous! Beautiful place with delicious food. I fall in love with this restaurant from the first glance and already added to my list of the favorites restaurants. Only one problem - too far from my home. Looking forward to coming back again and bringh my family and friends.

Extremely pleasant, and friendly hosts and servers! Everything was great. I did not have to wait at all when I showed up for my reservation. Our server was pretty quick about bringing things out that we asked for as well. The only con was due to the outdoor dining, there were a lot of bumble bees that surface when our food was brought out. It made it hard to stay and enjoy the food.

What a wonderful place to have dinner. We dined on the patio and the tables and fire pits were the perfect ambiance. We had the prosciutto and melon app and calamari. Both really good! Entrees were the seafood paella and the chicken and sausage paella, both equally amazing. Service staff was very attentive (especially John) and food was fresh and served hot. Definitely coming back here!

The food was alright. They brought out the wrong dish for dinner and I had to wait 5-10, minutes for my meal. They didn’t refill my drinks often either. The restaurant is by an intersection where cars can get really loud.
