We were greeted by two beautiful young women, nice start! As we were shown to our table, waiters (in nifty uniforms) all said hello. Beautiful room, Victoria sat by the window with a fancy pillow to her back, sweet. Our waiter John was warm and so professional, he 'recited' the evenings specials and took our cocktail order. He made it... More

We had the Langostino ravioli app $32.00 came with 4-5 quarter size ravioli and 2 jumbo size shrimp(langostino). Shrimp was really fishy, 2nd was so soft i was afraid to eat it in fear it was bad. Didn't finish the app and the waiter didn't even ask why we didn't finish it. Entree's we ordered were the Carbonara stuffed Ravioli... More

Great place for a special dinner. Service is attentive but not hovering. Decor is clean and modern. Noise level just right for a crowded but well designed seating layout. The veal and lamb were perfect and the pasta fantastic in texture and flavor...the Cassoncelli our favorite along with the rack of lamb. Too many inviting dishes to choose from; cannot... More

I love luxury but even for me Valentinos was a bit over the top. 4 people 1 bottle of wine the bill was $457.00 and the portions were small and fancy. Valentinos is definitly a Ft Lauder hot spot. It was extremely loud, very expensive but the food is very good. Super fancy, not your typical Italian restaurant as far... More

First time here was in January and we had to wait over half an hour for our table, despite the confirmed reservation. Food was OK and the ambience very noise. We decided to give it a second try and the experience has been the same. Unbelievable 40-minute wait, food OK, but far from exceptional.

Restaurant was recommended by friends and we also took the friends advice and sat at the open kitchen bar. Would highly recommend this as it allows you to enjoy the process of the food preparation as well as the outcome. The hostess, waitstaff (Janet is a treasure) and kitchen staff were all very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The... More

Restaurant is very good. Location is a little inconvenient. Service is excellent. Put us at table in corner near service area - asked for change - no problem.

Having fallen in love with this restaurant years before they relocated into their beautiful location, it is my pleasure to recommend Valentino Cucina Italiana. Pay attention to the list of specials because there are so many fantastic choices. The wine list is stellar and the appetizers, entrees and desserts are better!
