The high quality dishes prepared from fresh ingredients in this restaurant deserves a five star right there. The restaurant just a very short, walk from Piazza Grande, well worth checking it out.

My man & I had dinner at Da Valentino prior to the recent Bocelli concert. We were seated on the outside balcony with lovely aromas of jasmine floating through the air. I ordered an apple tarte tatin topped with foie gras and berries for starters. It was simply out of this world and I have recreated it several times at... More

Top of the line, what can you say more (but I have to say a minimum of 100 characters). Outstanding food, fantastic list of Ticino wines. Plus great ambiance in historic building. Outside patio in summer. Prices moderate for what you get.

The 'Ristorante da Valentino' is a bit hidden but very near the Piazza Grande. However, it is worthwhile to look for the restaurant bevause the food is excellent and the service competent and friendly. Prices are a bit high but this is easily forgotten when you taste the food.

It turned out that me and my wife had a very relaxing and romantic dinner in a very fine environment, the waiters were very kind... More

Da Valentino provides fine dining close to the Piazza Grande, and was indeed packed. The menu and the wine list were extensive and on the expensive side. The food quite good. The staff were a little stretched with the popularity.
