I found Ventuno when I Googled "Best Pizza in Sydney Rocks" and it lived up to the search term. I was staying at the InterContinental, so Ventuno was about a 15 minute scenic walk through the Rocks what looks like a newly renovated Harbor area. The area alone is worth the walk, as it retains all the character of an... More

Came here with friends - 10- before a show at the Wharf Theatre. Looked after well by Maître d' and orders came as expected. Some later additions, eg gluten free bread didn't arrive at all and further drinks orders mixed up. It was very busy but it appeared the system for orders other than the original one not working. Still... More

We had lunch here before seeing a show at the nearby Wharf Theatre, and returned after the show for dessert. The menu is not extensive, but there is a range of styles from which to choose - antipasto, pasta, pizza and a couple of specials. The drinks menu is extensive. The tortiglioni with veal ragu was delicious, and the roasted... More

We dropped in for an early meal before the theatre. The food was very good and the servings generous. We enjoyed the atmosphere and view over the boats moored between the finger wharves. Service was friendly. However, we had to remind the staff twice that our drink order had yet to arrive. When the bill arrived, the waiter grew a... More

Sadly, the attitude, service and kitchen staff sleeping in the main restaurant let down this great location. We ordered a bottle of sparkling on arrival and had to create our own seating and table, even though the pace was empty. You would expect a table at least for a bottle that costed at $58, but we're told we had to... More

Had a wonderful dinner here on a Saturday night with our friends. We had the Caprese (the Buffalo mozzarella was amazing), the Spaghetti pescatora, the Linguine alle vongole and the Pizza buffalina. For dessert we had Crespelle con crema all' arancio and the Frangelico. Everything was top quality with decent, yet sensible serving sizes and the service equally great with... More

Ventuno delivers friendly service (with an Italian accent), a cool atmosphere, and food that suits almost everyone. Yet somehow the flavour was just a touch lacking. As a gluten freebie, who doesn't really go for pizza and pasta, I would have preferred having a main course salad. The salads available were very nice, but the option of adding grilled chicken...

The manager was from Italy and very friendly. he said the Australians don't like their pasta "al dente", since I mentioned my pasta was a bit overcooked. The flavor aspect was missing from all of our dishes; pasta & shrimp, eggplant rollatini (was cold), and mushroom appetizer. All bland and definitely not Italian.

My wife and I had lunch at the restaurant as part of the Bike Buffs tour and returned a couple of nights later for dinner. The maître d remembered us and came by to visit, the food was great, service was excellent, and the lemon cella at the end of the night was a nice touch. Highly recommend this restaurant.
