This is one of our favorite on the island. Fresh ingredients - trust the "specials". Only downside is that it can be noisy -- housed in a colonial home, some of the rooms are small. Combined with hardwood floors and low ceilings you hear too...More

We were a party of 11, so each person chose his own main course of fish, chicken, or pasta, and the rest of the dinner ( 3 appetizers, 2 prime patti, and 3 desserts) were served "family style". More than enough food, all delicious. Excellent...More

Things don't always go as planned, and often, that's when it's most evident if a restaurant (or any business) is merely good or if it is excellent. And excellence starts at the top, with the owner. On our recent vacation in Nantucket, our daughter and...More

Appetizers were delicious, burrata and meatballs. The fritto mistso average. All over priced. Pasta super boring, bland and not cooked al dente and same price as the lamb $36. If you are going to charge those price the food should be spectacular. Great wine list...More

After a week in Nantucket - we have hit a lot of very good (and expensive) restaurants - Ventuno is my favorite. Although the room is a bit noisy, the food and service was outstanding. Excellent wine list as well.

Ventuno is a stylish and buzzy restaurant. Unfortunately, I felt that the food did not quite live up to the buzz. I had very high expectations, but sadly was underwhelmed. I didn't love my chicken, and my husband didn't rave about his lamb dish. I...More

I will not go back to Ventuno. The food was very good and we tried a variety of things on the menu. The best thing I ate was ricotta toast with native honey. However, it was so loud that I couldn't hear even to my...More

Ventuno is an island restaurant inspired by the frascas of Italy, small farmhouses which opened themselves up to friends and neighbors with wine and homemade food. Executive Chefs Gabriel Frasca and Amanda Lydon, with Chef De Cuisine Andrea Solimeo, delight in imagining Nantucket shellfish, fish and produce in Italian hands. House-cut pasta and simple takes on the bounty of sea and land are complemented by a carefully curated Italian wine list. Drink and eat our entire menu on either dining room floor or bar, or the open-air back bar, with comfortable service and the inviting breeze of the ocean.
