I ordered a Margarita Pizza and a caesar salad. The salad was just OK, nothing special. The pizza did not have much flavor. It was very blah.

We debated whether to go to Angelo’s or Valenti’s. The latter won because we both wanted an antipasto and pizza for lunch. We were last in Valenti’s Dec 2013. We ordered a large antipasto and medium combination pizza and the bill was $33.42 before tip. A couple days ago, we ordered a small antipasto and a large combination pizza and... More

Friday nights with Valerie and Company singing is truly an entertaining evening! Dancing the Cuban shuffle and the Electric slide was a blast! This is a place you can feel at home with friends and family. We had a party of 20 and made reservations. The staff is wonderful and the pizza is great! We had teenagers and elderly and... More

Need to get service more consistent. Sometimes they are right there to help other times you have to hunt them down

This is a nice Italian restaurant with a wonderful atmosphere. The food was good and service great. The homemade lasagna was delicious! It was a nice break from the mounds of seafood we'd consumed while in Venice for the week, albeit delicious.

Having heard good comments about Allegro, my cousin myself and our wives tried it out last Thursday evening. The food was good, but the entertainment was exceptional! Guest artists from the crowd, including an incredible finale by the owner, sung in Italian, really was a special treat.

Visited here specifically to hear the Patricia Dean trio, with Danny Sinoff (fantastic jazz!!) and was very pleasantly surprised by the food. Shrimp scampi was tender and garlicky - just the way it should be. Tried some penne with marinara - sauce was very good, made with fresh ingredients, pasta was al dente, as ordered. But the absolute star was... More

Great food! Always have leftovers for lunch. Staff is very friendly and they have entertainment. (We have not participated but seems to bring in a crowd.)

We stopped in for lunch and had a wonderful meal. I had the ricotta ravioli. The pasta and sauce were very good. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs-also very good. I'm Italian and have found it rare to enjoy sauce dishes in Italian restaurants, but Valenti's is an exception. Really good, authentic Italian food-at least the two entrees we enjoyed.... More
