Great restaurant - great risotto

My wife and I visited Valu our first night in Italy (in Naples). The restaurant was not far from our hotel, had a good recommendation and had gluten free meals. Since we were not very hungry we shared a salad caprese and a baccala risotto. Both were very good, but we really enjoyed the baccala... read more

Valu was recommended to us for our wedding anniversary and we were suitably impressed. We both had the special - steak and risotto. What a treat. The lady who served us i think she was called Serena was just lovely and even helped us learn some Italian!! Good wine menu as well.

We ate twice at Valu on a recent trip to Naples. We were looking for somewhere to eat that was not on the Main Street and stumbled across Valu. It's patrons on the days we were there were mostly Italiam. During the week at lunch there is a menu of the day which is excellent value for money. They make... More

We stopped here after visiting the Toledo area for a quick restorative. The cocktails here are really very well made and while we only had an antipasti it was generous, and of very good quality. We did some visual grazing of the plates coming out for other diners and they also looked fantastic (particularly the risottos which were being consumed... More

We arrived here just as they were opening on a Sunday night and got a table outside. It transpired that the risotto menu wasn't available that night as they were only serving food from next doors restaurant (part of the same family). It was all a little disorganised as they didn't speak much English and we didn't speak any Italian... More

We had a very nice meal here late at night on a Saturday, the day we arrived in Naples. Most of the places printed in our guidebook were closed (it was late, and August), but we randomly stumbled upon this place and a meal outside at a streetside table. The service was very friendly, and one of the servers spoke... More

We had a fantastic meal at Valu, which specialises in risotto dishes. The menu has two pages full of risotto ideas. We struggled to pick just one each! Mine had cheese, aubergine and a Neapolitan ragu. My partner had one with prawns (which needed shelling - probably left on for flavour, but a little inconvenient!). Huge portion of food. Nice...

A wonderful restuarant with exceptionally friendly staff - we rarely use the same restaurant twice whilst travelling, but this was so good we had to! A marvellous , family run, family friendly little gem :)

Lovely restaurant with also cosy outdoor seating. The menu is really focused on risotto. At 34 degress celcius this was too much for us and then the choice is limited. The bistecca was excellent, the pollo original but not convincing. A good rose wine. All in all good, but in a town full of great restaurants a bit disappointing... Certainly... More
