This is a typical Italian restaurant with all the choices you would expect. We particularly enjoyed the antipasto plate which we shared, Everyone was happy with the food. The wine list was very good . Service was a little slow but in fairness they were very busy. They only seemed to have two waiters on the floor. Staff were friendly.... More

Recently dined at Ventuno for business lunch. The restaurant has great views over the wharf. Menu has a good variety. The antipasto plates and lamb papadelle are good. Venue can also accomodate larger groups.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner including appetizers and the best tiramisu we have ever had. The restaurant was very busy as it is near a couple theatres, however, the staff was efficient, friendly and dishes came out promptly. It is recommended that you make a reservation as it is not a large restaurant. The water views add to the dining... More

Dropped in for a quick drink on our way to another restaurant. They weren't exactly welcoming - even though not full. Pleasant atmosphere and the large pizzas looked amazing ..but won't rush back.

Came for a function and was mislead that a surcharge was to be paid to start with. Food was clearly mass produced and seafood tough and from the freezer not fresh. Staff clearing table without asking if meals or drinks finished. Banquet very poor quality. will never return

Fantastic food and view over the moored boats makes for a great pre-theatre lunch. Service has improved since our last visit and the restaurant has a great feel to it.

The food is so good and staff attentive. Everyone loved it. Will go again when next in Sydney! Overlooking the water creates a beautiful atmosphere.

Ventuno is consistently good Italian food. Came here for an early dinner - had great pappardelle pasta with lamb ragu and a diavolo pizza. Great food and good service.

Was invited here for a Melbourne Cup lunch with 14 other colleagues. There were many other groups on the day and they handled the service of food and drinks very attentively which is not always easy when mass catering. It is quite a large restaurant with outlooks over one of the old shipping berths with its rustic converted old warehouses... More

We needed to get to the theatre on time and Ventuno delivered a terrific meal and all on time. I rang to book but left a message. They rang back to confirm a booking. All in all it was a great night. The food was A+ and very fast. The wait staff were attentive, happy and friendly. What more could... More
