The renovation of this restaurant is absolutely stunning. We sat in the back patio for a birthday celebration and the ambiance was just so perfect with the great tunes playing and the gorgeous setup and of course the sunset at the time. Food was delicious. I had the mediterranean sea bass and we got the calamari and bruschetta for appetizers. Definitely recommend Cucina Venti for either a group get together or a romantic dinner for two.

We LOVED the food. The braised short ribs were insanely tender and the flat bread with honey and sausage was perfectly salty and sweet. Our waiter shared information about our wines, including how the different grapes were grown. Also, the inside and back patio are very romantic!

the temperature was freezing; they kept every door open even though it was quite chilly outside. covid19 rules don't require that but that was their excuse. waiter never came and asked us how our food way and my entree was not good at all. we finally told him when we got the bill and he did nothing , like comp our dessert. wasn't impressed.

Everything from the way they created an inviting outdoor space to dine to the authentic, excellent Italian food made us want to come back soon. We loved the mushroom flatbread, grilled octopus and spaghetti with clams. This was our first time here and we will definitely be returning.

The restaurant's decor and ambiance greatly exceeded my expectations given the location. The owners have taken great care to have a beautiful space in an unexpected location. The food was great, came quickly and the service was also fantastic. The hostess was very helpful with my reservation and really went the extra mile.

I'll definitely be coming back as it's one of the top Italian restaurants in Mountain View! A great place for a meal before or after a movie at Shoreline.

There was a mess in the bill that in the end I had to pay 2 bills.
In the end I don't even know which bill I paid and I hope that only one will be charged.
The food was excellent.

This was our second or third visit but our first during the pandemic. Not many customers so service was excellent. We saw lots of takeout orders... who wants to cook on a Saturday! Good food variety, food was hot and tasty. Bread was hot and delicious. We will return.

This was my first time at Cucina Venti and we celebrated two birthdays. Bread prior to food was divine and so was the creme brulee. My main course, the salmon, was pretty good but not outstanding. Service was great, but they kept opening the doors and overall it was very cold—we kept both of our jackets on during the entire meal.

CUCINA VENTI IS INCREDIBLE!

We booked this restaurant on OpenTable for my daughters 21st and we really have not been many places during SIP. They have a great rating and clearly it's for a reason!

John was our server and made us immediately feel like he's known us for 20 years. Friendly, professional and attentive.

Natasha was our mixologist - she is FIERCE, fam. Spitting some fire with her talent and there was not a SINGLE cocktail we didn't love!

Hector was also supporting service and the was SO KIND and patient to our special needs son. I mean, we immediately felt like family here.

The FOOD!!! Omg! I think I sent compliments to the chef 3x. Those short ribs? It takes me all day to come even relatively close to what we are tonight. Their EC is no joke and knows his stuff.

Request John!, he’s amazing!
Be nice to Hector (he's an amazing human) and get some drinks from Natasha - she does not disappoint. She could be the CEO of mixology.

Confirmed we will be regulars at this place. They may not know it yet but we just gained some friends. What an incredible place and Covid is taken seriously.

Outside dining at its best served in a pleasant outside backyard patio (so much nicer than sitting in a sidewalk or parking lot).
They welcome you with a delicious bread and spread, which we followed with pesto tortellini and a duck confit pasta. Delicious and satisfying, with excellent service!

The restaurant is located in a strip mall near Google HQ but the food and service are top notch. It was our first time here and we can't wait to return soon. The chicken Marsala, scallops and salmon were all delicious and cooked perfectly. Our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. This was a 10/10 score and we shall return soon!

The dinner wasn't completely smooth but it was made right, even with the hiccups. Because of the times, it was quieter than usual, which is a little sad, but hopefully they had enough take outs to make up for the empty restaurant - inside and outside.

It was really pretty outside so that was nice.

Great food, great service. Staffing was just a bit thin (not too many working) but that is understandable since we are still in shelter in place.
