Just came back from a group dinner at Vento (not my choice or my check). I was unimpressed all around. I had the scallop crudo which was fine and the steak salad which was less than adequate, it could have been done better at a diner. To compare, I had a shrimp caesar salad at Pig N Whistle for lunch which far execeeded it. One member of my party requested her salad without vinegar because of an allergy, and the salad came swimming in vinegar. Dinner, with drinks, was $65/person. We sat on the second floor and the restaurant was less than half full. There was no buzz whatsoever.
Even thought Fiamma is a bit more money, it is far more worth it. Fiamma I recommend, but I would not recommend Vento.
