The food was excellent. Mushroom Raviolis were best we have ever eaten. The beat salad and pasta were great too.

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!

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.

Passed by many times. Booked reservation and found out this was the place I passed by.
Food was good. Service was excellent. John (tatoos) our waiter was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and attentive. Girlfriend and I got comfortable when they turned on the heaters. Very cozy and romantic. Will return again.

Visiting the area, hard to find dining, so gave this a try and not just better than expected but super experience. Don't let the fit into a tiny strip center worry you, the inside is very nice, only exceeded by the lovely patio. Ask for the patio. Seems like every angle has a good view, even of the building itself which has style. Our service by John was outstanding. Well informed, so patient with us "Midwesterner s" :-). Food was a little more expensive than we are used to but that was expected. It was super flavor and reasonable portions. Great little gem.

It was so nice to be able to dine outside with peace of mind. The tables are well spaced, the staff wears masks and keeps appropriate distance while still attentive. The patio is surrounded by trees in planters and we could see the changing colors of the sky as the sun set. These days, this is more than enough to make the meal memorable! For the food itself, our fried calamari was good and the saffron sea bass was well-cooked and tasty. However, the linguine with duck confit was a disappointment. The sauce added little and you couldn't really taste the duck.

I have been coming here for years. My favorite is always the scallops. They rest them in different sauces depending on the season. Tonight’s was a roasted corn and mushroom sauce. THIS WAS SO GOOD!

Outdoor seating is so nice. Service is so respectful of your space and they are very Covid conscience.

Thank you for being open and caring about your diners. The food has not suffered one bit since this pandemic as
others have. ❤️

Remember to tip. Many depend on this and some, this is the majority of their salary.

We loved the fact that the restaurant made a very generous effort to be open during these challenging times. It is a beautiful space with a wonderful patio that seems to provide a comfortable, upscale experience for small group get togethers around the fireplace. As a couple dining out while on the road, it seemed we have experienced better. The entree portions (four queen-sized scallops?) seemed ok overall but the appetizers and dessert were great. Spending close to $200 without a bottle of wine, I could be wrong but it seemed that there could be more of a “wow” factor.

we had dinner last Friday with my husband and we had such a great experience. It was our first time at Cucina Venti, and I was gladly surprised with the care the tables were set (distance between them, cleanliness) and the care and service from the employees. Everybody wears mask and gloves while serving food and drinks.
the food was delicious, well prepared and presented. S uch a treat during these challenging times! we will definitely go back.

Venti has always been a regular go to for us. During the SIP and our comfort level at any sort of dining out is outdoor patio dining. The patio at Venti is beautiful, the tables are properly distanced, and the food and service are always amazing! Thanks to Venti and their staff!

My sisters and I celebrated a birthday lunch on the beautiful patio of Cucina Venti.
Service was excellent, as was the outdoor ambiance. We highly recommend the Sangrias -
beautifully presented with a flower in each glass. The zucchini and focaccia appetizers were very good. We had a variety of salads for the main course - next time would ask for dressing on the side or order pasta which is a house speciality. The creme brûlée was nicely prepared, and the waiter brought a slice of excellent chocolate cake "on the house" for desert.

We were among the very few diners on the patio - social distancing was not a problem.
