Nice restaurant with ambience and attentive Service. Able to turn around a work lunch in short time. Spaghetti with clams was good

Everything here is utterly delicious. The chef is extraordinary. My favorite entree is the short ribs with polenta. OMG. My favorite salad is the arugula with mango. It's huge and truly refreshing. Great services; many of the folks have been with the owner a long time. Really nice people. Lovely outdoor seating front and back as well as a unique... More

I had been intending to visit this restaurant for years (the owner used to include recipes in local newspaper advertisements). The food was delicious, especially the chicken marsala ($24) and the spaghetti Bolognese ($19), and nicely proportioned. The Italian Sangiovese was perfectly acceptable. The service was prompt, yet not intrusive. Ambiance is casual. Highly recommended.

I've seen this restaurant when we go to the movie theater. It's across from Cinemark. I checked on "yelp and tripadvisor" and there were some good and some..just okay reviews. We haven't found a "worthy" Italian restaurant since we moved to the area 9 months ago. I don't consider "pizza" a true "Italian experience", yes I can be a snob.... More

We've been here a few times before catching a movie at Shoreline. The food is pretty good, but a bit pricey. Great ambience.

Cucina Venti is near The Computer History Museum so we walked there to eat lunch after our museum tour. One of us had the Venti Meatball sandwich (sliced meatballs covered with Venti sauce, melted provolone cheese, on a ciabatta roll, served with their specialty salad.) The other had Pollo e Mozzerella con Prosciutto (Ciabatta roll, grilled chicken, prosciutto (Italian ham),... More

Came here with a large group. Wait staff was very attentive. Nice wines. Got the mussels and they were very fresh. Would definitely come back. Parking was tough but I lucked out and got a spot right in front.
