Leading the charge at the Walsh Bay end of Millers Point, Ventuno is an elegant dining establishment serving contemporary Italian cuisine in a modern setting. Located on Hickson Road, the restaurant is known for its striking waterfront views over the water and its quality pizzas, even holding pizza-making courses for diners who want to know the secret behind what makes their pies so spectacular. Open seven days a week, this fine Italian restaurant is conveniently located near the Sydney Theatre Company and the Roslyn Packer Theatre, making it ideal for pre- or post-theatre dining over the other side The Rocks.
With gorgeous views over Walsh Bay from a prime location at the tip of Millers Point, it’s without any wonder that Ventuno is one of Sydney’s most romantic Italian restaurants. And the location could hardly get any better. Situated just moments from Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge and the historic Sydney precinct of The Rocks, Ventuno is right in the action; you can feel the buzzing energy of the city as you walk Hickson Road. Available for private functions including weddings, birthday celebrations and corporate events, the restaurant is ideal for any occasion. Reservations, no matter how big or small the dining party, are essential.
Head chef Robert Taffuri and his talented team are magicians in the kitchen, conjuring up homemade pastas, wood-fired pizzas and hearty mains using seasonal vegetables and only the purest ingredients. Be sure to indulge in a bottle of organic Sangiovese-Sauvignon from Tuscany while taking in the view of Walsh Bay from Ventuno’s al fresco dining area, then choose from an array antipasti (scallops wrapped in pancetta, for example) before diving into your main course. We can’t say enough positive words about the pizzas – take the golosa, a decadent pizza topped with tomato, fior di latte, ham, mixed porcini mushrooms, parmesan and truffle oil. Pasta lovers will find numerous delicious options, all homemade and with gluten-free varieties available. Seaside views, perfect pizzas and incredible Italian cuisine make this Sydney restaurant a standout in the neighbourhood of The Rocks and Millers Point, so make sure to book ahead and avoid the rush.
