Beautiful view, good food and friendly staff

Family owned restaurant which in my opinion serves THE BEST chicken cacciatore I have had. I have also recently tried the stuffed sole and that was also very good. Your meal is started out with a vegetable tray, homemade pepper biscuits and homemade bread. This is followed by a salad. I like my... read more

My husband & I were there about 18 months ago. We went back this past weekend and were pleased that not much has changed. Still a complimentary plate of crudité on being seated. Excellent Bruschetta warm and crusty & Eggplant Rolatini appetizers. Complimentary house baked biscuits with fennel, house-baked warm bread. Home-baked lasagna daily special inexpensively priced but very well... More

I had the chicken Marsala, it was awesome, best I have ever had. The salad was awesome, and I don't even like salads, the entire meal was perfect, the tiramisu was great. It's an older couple that runs the place, they are very nice and attentive. I look forward to my next meal there.

Valentino's sits atop a hill off Route 5 in the little hamlet of Cranesville. The owners are delightful people who strive to please your palate. Before your meal you are served a relish tray with homemade pepper biscuits. Then comes your salad. Then your meal. I have never been able to finish this dish and always have enough left for...

After dining here a number of times I am finally writing a review. The owners are from Italy and the husband was schooled at a prestigious chef school in Paris [think Cordon Bleu]. His heritage and schooling are evident in the menu selections. As noted in others the salad is very crisp as well as the vegetable platter. This last... More

I am surprised by all the good reviews this place has received. I can only say three good things about it: the view, the homemade bread, and the friendliness of the owners. The salad and small veggie platter were both excellent because they were cold and fresh. But the meal went down hill from there. I thought the mozzarella stix... More

Lovely restaurant with well-prepared food. The home-made bread and pepper sticks were delicious, the fresh vegetable tray and salad were crisp, the wine was smooth, and the main course was filled with old-fashioned good taste. The couple who own and run the restaurant are warm and friendly. The restaurant itself is old-style and quiet with a nice view.

A nice location with a beautiful view, food is average and prices too high. I would recommend this if it was your first romantic date or a very special ocsassion, but not just to "go somewhere to eat".
