Restaurant review #2

Friday night we decide to try a new restaurant, I had been here for a luncheon but Charlie had not.
Ventano's on Horizon Ridge and Arroyo Grande.
Nice place!! Italian food....Love it!
We started with an appetizer of shrimp served on a hot granite tile. Highly recommend this!! Wow, it was sizzling shrimp and the granite stayed hot!!
The bread they serve is yummy with the oil and vinegar.
I had the ventano spiedini, which was chicken breaded and stuffed with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, charlie had what the waiter recommended not on the menu but the chef was famous for...adobe chicken and shrimp, charlie liked it had a teriaki flair to it. The people were extremely nice and friendly and fun, and the atmosphere was wonderful with windows for a view that looked over the entire las vegas valley and strip.
This place gets 5 stars and I can't wait to have that shrimp appetizer again!! It may just replace a shrimp cocktail in my book!!

I 100% agree! The shrimp apps are the BEST! My fav is their Grilled Hearts of Romaine Salad; they actually grill the lettuce! The owners are our neighbors, just one street over from us!!! I'll have to tell you the story how we met next bead class. One of my favorite resturants! *****5 Stars*****!
