Best Itailian in Watervliet

Great food, good service. I say good because waiter was constantly going to the mens room, which we could see to use his cell phone. Every time he went (8 times) I counted he would come out with cell phone in hand .

Four of us went to Valente's before a meeting, and we all had a most enjoyable meal. Two had chicken parmigiana, which consisted of enormous chicken breasts that were moist and tender, covered with the expected cheese and an abundance of tasty marinara sauce. A teenager with us had spaghetti and meatballs and cleaned his plate. I had shrimp parmigiana,... More

We ate here last night. We both enjoyed our meals. We did have to wait a little for a booth to be cleaned, but I think it was so busy that everyone that had asked us if we had been helped forgot to seat us when the table was cleaned. Our waiter was great! Very personable. My husband got a... More

We were visiting relatives in N.Y., because of reviews they heard, they were excited to make reservations for 5 of us here. We waited 50 minutes to be seated for our "reservation." From the REFRIGERATOR (never experienced anywhere before) COLD bread and three pats of butter for 5 people, to the lousy service and terrible meal it took an addition... More

We used to eat here about once per month, either with some friends or just the 2 of us. The service has dropped considerably and the food is just plain awful. There is no other way to put it. During our last visit, even though the place was half full, I had to continually get up and look for our... More

Came here with my husband for an anniversary dinner. Very homey. The wait staff treated us very kindly and took a lot of care in suggestions for our meal. The husband had the Delmonico Steak, which was wonderfully seasoned and perfectly cooked. I had the more-than-generous portion of the Perfect Storm Mac and Cheese. The pasta was very good, Mac...

Went here with family on a Thursday night. Very good pizza and lobster mac and cheese appetizer. Nice, friendly waitress and relaxing atmosphere. Prices were average. Would go back.

We love this restaurant. We always have excellent service and wonderful meals. We have favorites from the menu but try different items at times as well and everything has been delicious.
