with all the hype on line and a heartfelt recommendation from our hotel we were disappointed in dinner last evening. Did not mind that only waitstaff was clearly new and being trained (one couple sat with menus but no interaction for about 10 minutes and left). One dish of 4 was wonderful, the other three,including two pasta dishes while flavorful... More

I believe our two best meals in our two week Italian vacation were eaten at Via Venti. The host was very nice and his wife was an amazing chef.

Went here for a light late night meal one night and have to say their pear and cheese ravioli is fantastic! Probably my favorite pasta dish in over 2 weeks across Italy. Definitely give it a try!

Cinque Terre This little Italian find has indoor seating and also accommodates outdoor seating with large umbrellas. We were seated outside and the weather was a little unpredictable.....the umbrellas kept us dry. The family restaurant is well run and the owner is always attentive. We started with drinks which came very quickly then starters some us had the soup of... More

The food and service here is absolutely fantastic. We chose this restaurant after all the positive reviews, and it did not disappoint. The pear and cheese stuffed pasta is out of this world... a must try!

This restaurant was recommended to us by Fausto, the owner of Il Giardino Incantato where we were staying. Since the reservation was made at the last minute we "forced" to sit inside near the back of the restaurant by the bar. It is nice to be forced into an area that was quiet, delightful with great service. The owner was... More

Dropped by for dinner as I was attracted by the seafood displayed outside. The crab meat crumbled to bits indicating it was not fresh. The prawns were fresh but tasted ordinary. The place is quiet with both indoor and outdoor seating. Presentation was delicate.They took time to serve and booking is advised.

Our dinner at Ristorante Via Venti wasn't very impressive. We started with the bruschetta with assorted meats which was good though pretty par for the course in Italy. For main dishes, my wife ordered the gnocchi with crabmeat and I ordered gnocchi with pesto. Her meal arrived a full 15 minutes before mine did which was pretty disappointing -- she... More

Don't really understand what all the fuss is about. We stopped here for a late antipasti dish. The presentation seemed to be the most important part of the meal. There didn't seem to be a wide variety of fish - mussels, an anchovy, swordfish, calamari, all prepared differently and the portions were tiny, when compared with other restaurants. It was... More
