    We still like this place with excellent outdoor seating. Parking was a challenge due to the Shoreline fireworks traffic that used up all the parking spots close by. The corkage charge at $50 is outrageous and the wines have become very expensive by glass. Almost $20 for an average glass of wine is 20 to 30% higher than comparable restaurants.

    We had never been to this Italian restaurant and was very impressive. The server, Martin, was outstanding-- very professional, knew the menu and made great recommendations. We had the linguini with sea food and the mushroom ravioli in marsala sauce. both great. we started with the Caesar salad which was easy to share. The bus staff was excellent- filling out waters and ice tea's without us asking. We highly recommend this place and plan to be back again. I understand they have private rooms for events too.

    My wife and I enjoyed our wedding anniversary with dinner at Cucina Venti. We dined in the outdoor patio under the chandeliers. We were early enough that there was no need for heaters and the ambience was as good as the food. Although this space is immediately next to a fairly busy street, the green barrier was both visually appealing and seemed to block out most of the noise.

    I almost never give restaurants 5 stars but…. First time here. Food was excellent (I had the short ribs), service was attentive (John the Maitre d’ was checking on the tables to make sure everything was going well), nice atmosphere and not too noisy so my dinner companion and I could actually talk! I’d also like to praise the freshly made bread! Many places serve you bread that’s hardly worth eating - but this was soft, tasty and served warm. I WILL BE TAKING MY GF FOR DINNER HERE WHEN SHE COMES FROM OUT OF. TOWN.

    My husband ordered the lasagna which was delicious. I ordered the Penne Francesca. The shrimp was so rubbery we sent it back. The second order was warmer but not much better. The manager graciously deducted this from our bill. Overall we feel the poor service was a direct reflection of our waiter. As we were leaving, he chased us down in the parking lot to tell us our card was declined. We gave him the same card again with no problem. Our desert was delayed until we reminded him. Not the best experience…..

    Decent restaurant, albeit somewhat presumptuous. Probably the most un-kids friendly place I’ve ever been to. It’s by design (they claim to be more of a “corporate restaurant”) but still. Food was ok. Service was … acceptable. Price … steep. Overall … not the worst place I’ve been to.

    Before you select Cucina Venti for your dinner, ask via phone whether the chef who cooked on Father's Day, (6/19/22) is the chef cooking when you want your reservation. Our food was so salty it was virtually not eatable. We were comped dessert, which was nice, and one of the two entrees was also comped. I know that was to have us return, but unless the chef from that day has been retrained, we will not choose Cucina Venti. The prices are definitely high end, so it's worth your checking before going.

    There were a couple of practices that threw me off about my time there. One, the idea that they will charge me $30 per person if I had to cancel at the last minute. Two, they had already added the tip to the bill when it was presented to me, even for a party of two? Both practices might be why the restaurant was less than half full.

    Our visit was ok, but no better than that. I asked for the lamb to be medium rare and specifically discussed with our server that I wanted it pink. But it came 'medium' anyway. The Calamari overcooked and reheated the ahi tuna appetizer was overpowered by the sauce. The other dishes that we had were uninspiring, but ok. Servers were just ok, as well. It's too expensive not to be better than this. A good selection of wines.

    The food made this meal amazing! But the service, especially from Martin, made this meal truly one to remember. Thank you for making my cousin's graduation dinner just wonderful! The meat was cooked to perfection, and my husband had the most scrumptious salmon maybe ever! We will be returning soon. Such a lovely hole in the wall.

    We hadn't been to Cucina Venti since before the pandemic. The restaurant has made considerable renovations and expansions. The patio dining area was elegant and the outside sectional seating was quite inviting; looked cozy especially with the outdoor heating throughout. The menu provided an abundance of appetizers and salads to choose from, we enjoyed the Chicken Piccata and Linguine Pescatore, both excellent! We'll be back.
