Reviewed September 12, 2012

Ventosa is a very lovely spot. Very well decorated and clean environment. They have an amazing back deck when weather is good. Some times they have live music. Staff is excellent! I would recommend Tony very friendly and know a ton about his wine.

“Great wine, great panini's!!!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Stopped here on our way back from our trip to Cayuga Lake. They wine tasting was only $2.00 for 4 wines and you received a coupon for the $2 off if you purchased a bottle, so it worked out very nice. The staff behind the wine bar were ok, they didn't seem focused on taking care of the customer. We decided to get some lunch and a glass of wine, this was a great choice! My wife and I both had Panini's and the sandwiches were incredible. The meat used was unbelievably delicious. We went outside to eat lunch on the patio deck, which had a great view of the vineyards and Seneca Lake. This is a must stop on your trip to the finger lakes. I would have given an 'Excellent' rating, if the staff behind the bar and at the checkout counter seemed a little more interested in their jobs.

“Good Food, Good Friends, Good Wine”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Stopped here for lunch with friends during a visit to the wineries in the area. Lunch was wonderful and the patio out back is a great place to eat and just relax. Wine tasting staff were very helpful in making selections.

“Great wedding!!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

I was in the wedding of a dear friend who had it at Ventosa. We went for lunch the day before in the cafe / tasting side and sat on the back patio. The back patio is the gem of this place!! The patio runs the whole length of the building with sweeping views of the vines and lake. The cafe food was excellent!! And for the wedding, the patio was an amazing spot again, guests enjoyed sitting out there all through the night. And the service and staff seemed excellent, very helpful, very pleasant! The food for the wedding was good, and the bartenders were fun. What more could you ask for at a wedding!? And best of all, when you walk into the large banquet room, you look past everything else, and your view takes you straight to the sweeping lake views. A great time at a great place!

“Great winery and restaurant”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

We ate on the deck overlooking the water. The pizza was the best we have ever tasted and we hope to return again and sample more of the menu. What would make this place even better is table service instead of cafeteria and the use of real cutlery. They truly have something special here and should exploit it more. The girl that worked at the wine-tasting bar was extremely knowledgeable and was genuinely interested in what we thought. What an excellent employee and she should be commended for her customer service. We were there Friday, August 3rd for lunch. We plan to return there on our next trip!
