Back again in Surfside Beach for vacation, we headed for Valentino's II the moment we got the car unpacked. Wonderful calamari was just as delicious as remembered, and still served with the tangy marinara. The chef has a deft touch with the frier. The veal chop special was huge and juicy, served with garlic mashed pots and grilled asparagus. The... More

The restaurant makes it clear that the food could take a lengthy amount of time, but it took even longer than we anticipated. We had a party of 10, but several other tables that came in after ours had their orders taken and food delivered prior to ours. All that being said, the food was VERY good once it finally... More

This was a great, low key place. We are from Chicago and this place had better Italian than any place we have been to! Highly recommended!

From the moment we walked in the door we were treated like visiting family! Our food (fish and pasta dishes) was cooked to perfection and was very tasty. The server (Donna) made sure everything was fine, and Ilona stopped by our table to ask if we were satisfied with our meal and to chat a little with us. To sum... More

We ate here for the second year in a row and we're not disappointed! Excellent meal, as was the first time. The server was exceptional, made sure we had drinks, bread and were happy with our meal. The staff was amazing, and you could tell it was a family style restaurant by the pride the servers and staff took in... More

Have eaten there twice & both times the food was wonderful. The hostess remembered us from the first visit & made us feel like family. Now we have a regular place when we visit the area. I wish I could have given more than 5 stars.

The food was pretty good however the wait was very long to get the food. We arrived around 6pm. It took at least 45 mins to get our food. There was no wait to be seated and the restaurant was only half full. It seemed the kitchen was understaffed as you could see they we're bring out one entree at... More

Upon seeing that this restaurant was rated as #2 in Surfside Beach, our family was sincerely disappointed by our experience. The service was wonderful, but the food was extremely bland.
