Great outdoor but under cover seating at Ventuno, overlooking the harbour. Lamb strap special was good- simple but tasty. Pizza's looked great but something to try next time. Largely Italian wine list but the odd Aussie Shiraz and NZ Pinot noir. Coffee was served with a surprise shot of passioncello, which was very well received.

We had wonderful service, food and cocktails last night at Ventuno. We were staying at Pier One and booked last minute for dinner here and were more than happy with the waterside table we were given with a prime view despite the late booking. Food was delicious and service was lovely. Felt very Italian due to the genuine Italian waitresses... More

I was looking forward to trying this place after so many good reviews, most of which say it has genuine Italian food and flavour. I couldn't disagree more. The food is bland, the pizzas are average at best and the alcohol menu is limited and expensive. Service is terrible. I think giving it a one out of 5 is too... More

This Italian restaurant is owned by Italians. Staff members speak in Italian and the food is similar to what we eat in Italy. Love the location, great atmosphere, excellent prosecco and great food. We will return.

We discovered Ventuno on a walk along the Sydney Harbor from Pyrmont to the Circular Quay. On Walsh Bay, Ventuno is a great spot for a quick bite or a leisurely meal. We shared a couple of antipasti...baked zucchini flowers with ricotta and roast pork belly on Ciabatta toast. Excellent! Professional, friendly Italian staff.

Seated immediately, even without a reservation, with a great view of the water. Our pasta dishes were delicious, but our favorite part was dessert! If you like pizza and Nutella, you'll LOVE their Nutella Pizza! Drinks were great, too and the staff was amazing.

We dined here following a show at the Sydney Theatre Company and greatly enjoyed the meal. The two of us shared a pizza, a bottle of Barolo and Tiramisu for dessert and were very happy with everything we tried. The service from staff was also fabulous who happily showed us to a table despite not having a booking and being... More

We hosted a large group at this restaurant over the weekend. I couldn't fault a thing. The attention to detail was incredible. The waitress we had assigned to our table watched everyone to make sure they were eating, and quietly approached anyone not eating a particular item and asked if it was okay and offered to get them something more...

We booked at Ventuno for early Sunday lunch, knowing they had some large groups coming in later. This was our first time there and were hoping for a nice Walsh Bay experience by the water on the last full day of our two week stay nearby at Millers Point. They were quick to take our food and drink orders, presumably... More
