Description: 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.

I was initially hesitant about dining at an Italian (rather than a seafood) restaurant on Nantucket, but a friend from Milan highly recommended Ventuno. Since then, we've returned here multiple times every summer. The building is charming, the scene lively, and the food always fresh and delicious. After too many disappointing dining experiences on the waterfront, we usually limit our visits at those other venues to sunset drinks, and then head to Ventuno for a wonderful meal.

We started with ricotta crostini and panzanella. That was ok. But, the parpadelle with lamb ragu was off the charts! So succulent. We also had a perfectly seasoned ribeye and excellent wine to wash it all down. Very professional knowledgeable staff.

We had dinner at this restaurant on Thursday night of Christmas Stroll Weekend. We both had the seasonal Nantucket bay scallops and they were delicious and cooked perfectly! The service was great. There is a fun and busy bar at this restaurant along with an outdoor bar (covered by a tent with "see-through" walls) at the back of the restaurant. It was a very lively place with a lot of people enjoying great food, drinks and a fun atmosphere. Ask for a table away from the bar area if you want a quieter experience. We will definitely return to this great restaurant.

Very good and solid choice for classic - with an inventive spin - dining on Nantucket. We were there with a big group and we had great service. The restaurant was packed even though we were there in the off-season. The restaurant has a very nice wine list with a wide-range of price points. I would definitely dine here again.
