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.

Great food in wonderful old 21 federal. Probably best for couples and friends. We had our kids with us and we constantly felt the need to ask them to whisper.

“Should be rated higher!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

The atmosphere is very nice, the service is friendly & attentive, & most of all the food is just great. A little pricey if you choose a good wine, but well worth it. We always go back.

“A real treat”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

This was the first time we've dined at this venue since the old 21 Federal Street. Beautiful surroundings, great service and excellent food. We brought guests, for a total of 11 of us, were seated promptly, and the wait staff could not have been more attentive.

“Simply Perfect”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

Wonderful and romantic for a couple's weekend. Highly recommended by a family friend and it was even better than we had anticipated. Lighting was soft and not overwhelming. Reservations accepted, but, if I recall, you didn't need a reservation to sit outside. Especially since it was over an hour wait to sit inside. It is a very popular spot, even more so since there was 30 weddings on the island that weekend. Wine was delicious, meat was juicy and tender. When I can afford a boat ticket, I will be back...hungry for more.
