We are regulars at Ventuno due to the consistent quality of the food and the brilliant service. Every time that we have dined here the staff have been exceptional. The pizzas are delicious, the pasta is always perfectly al dente and we love the Italian wines on the menu. The view is superb overlooking Walsh Bay into the harbour and... More

Pre-theatre lunch on a beautiful, if hot and humid, day. The service was impeccable, with the wait-staff always anticipating our needs. Entree was Caprese Salad with perfectly ripe cherry tomatoes and melt in the mouth buffalo mozzarella. Warm slices of doughy sour dough bread with lashings of olive oil and balsamic. We each had linguine with vongole for our main... More

After walking in and out of about 4 other restaurants (long waits, not so great looking menus, etc), we decided our next stop was going to be "it"! Tired and hungry, we stumbled into Ventuno's. It was really crowded and we basically said to the host, 'PLEASE tell us that you have a table for us?." He waved his hand,... More

After being turned away yet again by a place that doesn't take bookings we were able to get a last minute table at Ventuno. The staff were quick, attentive and very aware that we were pre-theatre patrons. They were happy to change ingredients in a cocktail without fuss and the manager helped speed up the dessert and coffee. The clam... More

Ventuno was a mixed experience. Located on Wharf 6 of Walsh Bay, it had a nice view out to Sydney Harbour. It also benefited from the nice breeze coming off the bay. We were seated quickly, and the service was good. Unfortunately for us, it was very noisy. There were a number of large, happy groups. The structure did not... More

I ate here with my wife on the last day of a long trip. It was a great last memory. We shared the calamari and a pizza. Both were great and the views of the bay were as good.

A great place for a relaxed family or friends get together. The staff are friendly and obliging and also have a sense of humour. They make you feel very welcome and happy for you to relax, order a few things, sit chat and enjoy the ambience. No rushing you out at all and the share platters and pizzas that w... More

Highly recommended by a local, we had a solid meal at Ventuno and would return again...here is how it went. Arriving around 8pm on Saturday without reservations, we were promptly seated inside. The inside decor is dimly light by stylish and pleasantly noisy. The seats by the water offer a great view and require reservations. Our waiter was efficient, a... More
