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.

We fully enjoyed our meals. My husband ordered the chicken parm w/ a side of angel hair. It was huge. I ordered shrimp with white clam sauce on Linguine. I couldn't finish it. Service was decent. The room we were in had a number of young kids. So it was kind of loud. But that should be expected for a... More

My first visit, but not my last. I ordered Char Grilled Delmonico steak. Perfect in every way and perfectly seasoned. Wait staff was accommodating and personable. Very comfortable atmosphere.

What happened here ? Terrible service. I can see why everyone has a coupon. When a restaurant starts offering coupons continually you know something is amiss. Skip this place. Not with your money.

Now I know why they are giving such a great deal with coupons... The veal parm was nasty and my wife had the eggplant parm and only took two bites.The worst sauce I have ever tasted in an Italian restaurant. Don't waste the trip to try this place, total disappointment.

My husband and I dined at Valente's for dinner last night. I ordered the Veal Marsala and I was very impressed with the care and detail taken to prepare this dish, The veal was pounded thin, it was absolutely delicious! I decided to eat it all and save the rigatoni for tomorrow night's meal. Their chicken Alfredo was a big... More

This review is about my visit to Valente's last night for a turkey club. It seems that a turkey club is pretty standard for most restaurants and usually you can hardly get your mouth around one of the quarters...with three slices of bread, tomato slices, crispy lettuce and piles of turkey and topped with crispy bacon. Not!..... My turkey club... More

We have gone to Valente`s on many occasions on our way to Albany for events. The food is outstanding and the portions are out of this world. Personally I lean towards their veal dishes(tough to find great veal at a good price), the Veal ala Dan is incredible and can feed you twice. All the other food is top notch... More

I have lived in the area for several years now and have never noticed this hidden gem before receiving an entertainment coupon. When we first arrived, though the parking lot was full, we were seated right away. Our server greeted us promptly and our soup and salad's came out fairly quickly. We looked over at other diners after we ate... More
