This Restaurant is in a handy location Opposite the Roslyn Packer Theater, thus a great location for a pre-theatre dinner. There is both inside and out side seating with views across Walsh Bay. The wait staff are attentive and the meal was excellent. Try the mixed antipasto ..you will not be disappointed. I recommend this Restaurant if you like Italian.... More

We were welcomed by a waiter who assured us he is the best waiter in Sydney, and he is not wrong! We did not book a table but were seated quickly at a table by the window with views of the Pier. Our waiter was cheerful, attentive & professional. If you are into cocktails I would recommend 'Thank God I'm... More

Went to Ventuno only on web site info. From the booking stage till the last glass of wine nothing was a problem for the staff, very helpful with a nice bubbly atmosphere and great setting. Service was great and the food was just as good. We wanted a place that was a good location but not too pricey and that's... More

With a wonderful outlook over the harbour, our daughter suggested the three of us share a pizza and salad. I was very hungry and doubted the choice. I was wrong, there was certainly enough for the three of us, the pizza was delicious and I can recommend having it with a glass of the 2014 Tellurian 'Heathcote'. Could I have... More

The food is good and the service is fast. Tell the waiter you have a show at the theatre and they will make sure you have the perfect meal in just the right time.

Went there for a large group lunch a few weeks ago. All the food was pretty good, maybe 1 pasta dish was slightly bland, but all the others were very nice. The service was good, the staff were friendly and looked after us all well. Price wise its ok, it would be cheaper if you weren't overlooking the water but... More

Arrived early on a friday night. The restaurant was virtually empty. Five staff members walked past and ignored me before i was seated after waiting in the lobby for several minutes. The meatball dish came in a tomato sauce but the meatballs were overcooked and tasted like they had used cheap sausage. Our pizza mains were good but a little... More

Ventuno was a delight to visit. The service was professional and friendly, and the range on offer on their menu, especially the pizzas, was excellent. They also had a very nice range of Italian wines and beers. And the location was perfect, with lovely water views.

2.5 stars Negatives: food is average at best. Uninspiring menu. Bought two mains, $38 each, both served on the same ratatouille base. No sides included. Positives: nice location and great service.
