Lovely ambience, service & food

Right across the street from the Computer Museum and close to the movie theatre complex as well, Cucina Venti is a find. The Greater Palo Alto Area seems hard pressed to offer restaurants that allow for conversations where one doesn't have to shout louder than the next table. At the Italian Cucina Venti , one can find that quiet as well as good food and friendly, attentive service which can also make allowances for special dietary needs

Excellent food and ambiance

I visited twice in Dec. once for a large office event and once for a small group. They accommodated me exceptionally well in both cases. I had the ground lamb skewer on one occasion. It was very well done. It can become a go to dish for me. Reasonable price point at $22. On the next visit I tried the lamb chops. Also very good. Cooked perfectly. Tasty sides. Still reasonable for what you get at $32. I preferred the ground lamb skewer. Just sooo tasty. Flatbreads were good as was the calamari and bruschetta. Everyone enjoyed all the appetizers. Good wines. Decent cocktails. Good service. Nicely decorated. Cozy seating available for couples and nice large tables for bigger groups. Lunch time crowds make parking difficult but you can find something on the street if the lot is full

Great for business lunch or dinner

Variety of menu is wonderful - so many diverse dishes and everyone enjoyed their selection. I suggest making a reservation since the restaurant is popular and fills up quickly

Good food, good service, convenient location

This restaurant is across one street from the Mountain View movie theaters, and across another street from the Computing Museum and Tesla Superchargers. We came in for a birthday dinner and then went to a movie. The service was quick and attentive. My dish (Mediterranean Sea Bass) was great. Some of the others in my party thought what they got was so-so. The room is nicely done, very pleasant
