This was a welcome stop from the heat on a Saturday afternoon. The antipasto for two was perfect. The wood fired foccaccina was wonderful as was the percorino cheese.

Venuto is a great, relaxed venue in a dramatic setting. Housed in a heritage building that once provided the hydraulic power for the wharves, the back of the restaurant opens onto the water, so that you can dine with the water almost lapping at your feet. We stopped by for a pre-theatre dinner and were not disappointed. The shared antipasti... More

I have now been going there for about 6 times and just recently in December 2016 had my 50th Birthday there with 20 members of my family. Gianluca who I met the very first time looked after my booking and it all went like clock wise just perfect. Coming from an Italian background all my guest were over the moon... More

How could have i by-passed this eatery over so many years? I have supped and chi-chi'd my way through the Walsh Bay precinct for yonks, but there you have it, i have missed out on a gem. Dishing out an extensive antipasti, pasta and and the ubiquitous pizza. Decked out alongside the wharf its easy to unwind. Its location makes... More

Although it seemed a little out of the way this restaurant was easy to find - and the bus stops roght outside. We started with a cocktail called Thank God I'm a VIP and it was delicious. The menu was authentic Italian fare with generous servings. The antipasto for 1 - 2 was more than enough and consisted of cheese,... More

With a great Italian menu and Italian waiters, you would have thought you were enjoying lunch in Italy. The wine list contained white and red wines from Italy and the price of the wines were on the high side. But if you know your wines and regions then you can make your own judgement as to what is a reasonable... More

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
