Cucina Venti Ratings and Reviews
We arrived at 8:50 PM for a 9:00 PM reservation via Open Table that was accepted. Sadly, the manager greeted us and although there were 15 diners still present, he said the kitchen was closed and there was nothing he could do. He was pretty rude and dismissive, never an apology and when we pointed out it was before closing, there were still diners present and they had accepted Open Table reservation, he said that was Open Table's problem. Then they marked my reservation as though I had not shown up. Ouch.
I have been to Cucinba Venti many times in the past ten years or so and have always had a good meal. Pastas and appetizers especially are excellent. I was a bit taken aback this time by the prices, which seemed higher than I remember, hence my "fair" rating on "Value." $114 for lunch (2 pastas and four glasses of wine) is more of a special occasion than an regular thing.
Cucina Venti is a great discovery that my daughter recommended about a year ago. The restaurant is very convenient before we attend a Pear Theatre production or a movie. The food is excellent and offer a variety of entrees. When I placed my reservation via Open Table and requested a booth, I was happily surprised that I received exactly what I had requested. Often, for many online services, this has not been my experience. We have introduced many of our family and friends to enjoy Cucina Venti's dining appreciation.
We had tickets for going to the Coldplay concert. Our server was so sweet and professional! The lamb chops were perfect!! Exquisite in fact!! Cooked to perfection, so juicy and tasty and bountiful!! We live in Marin County so not in Palo Alto ... but this surely would be our “go to” spot if ever returning!! Already have “talked it up!!”
I can't express enough how wonderful our experience was at Cucina Venti. The owner, Bella was so gracious and warm. She greets us at our table. Our waiter was also top notch. There was four of us there. Every appetizer was delist! The zucchini balls were scrumptious , all of our entrees were well made, done with quality food. We had the seafood paella, the sea bass with risotto, and the salmon with wild rice. All were perfectly prepared and presented. I can't wait to come back!every one here, including Chris, were so warm and professional at the same time. The ambiance is the icing on the cake. Romantic! Even the BATHROOM smells yummy and feels so good! PLEASE TREAT YOURSELF TO A WONDERFUL DINNER OUT!
We made a reservation here as the restaurant is conveniently located near Shoreline Amphitheater. Previous reviews were favorable. We sat in the patio, which was nice, but the server was overwhelmed. There was apparently no consideration given by the hostess and she sat too many people in his section. He did the best he could, but management should have stepped up and in to help. Appetizers were good, but main dishes were under seasoned. Two hours for a party of two is ridiculous. Definitely should staff appropriately when events are taking place at Shoreline.
Four of us ate here to celebrate a friend's birthday before a concert at The Shoreline. The zucchini cakes and calamari appetizers were perfection. My Duck Confit flatbread was a wonderful and everyone at the table enjoyed everything they ordered. Not just good food in an industrial area otherwise devoid of even decent food. This was superb food. A true gem!
Food Fantastic.!!!!!!!! We have been eating here for over 3 years and have never been disappointed!
The chef has a magic touch to make every item on the menu beyond excellent and served in a most appetizing presentation.
The prices are good considering this is in the heart of "Googleville."
Service is good.
The lamb chops are the best I have ever tasted....including Evvia's in Palo Alto.
