OUTSTANDING

Having come from New York, I consider myself an expert on real Italian Food -- not the Olive Garden variety -- and this is the real deal. All dishes were prepared with excellent ingredients and flavor -- THERE ARE TOO MANY SUPERLATIVES TO STATE IN THIS REVIEW -- BUT ALL THE DISHES and especially... read more

Chicken piccata and Flounder Florentine, delicious. Jenny, our server, had a great, funny personality, easy, roll with the flow and great service. Music was really nice too-keyboard w/singer of ballads you would expect. Crowded, parking a challenge and sooooo worth it.

We met two other couples there for dinner. It was a pleasure. I was dying for eggplant parm, and I satisfied my craving. The service was friendly and relaxed, there was live entertainment and the prices were appropriate. I never had the turn em and burn em feeling you get from some restaurants. In fact it was such a nice... More

Can't say enough positive things, service was wonderful, food was delicious and portions were large. So glad I read other reviews and gave it a try. Will definitely visit there again. Husband is not crazy about Italian food so he had Surf & Turf, said it was delicious.

I dined at Valentino's twice, both being in the past 2 months. Each time was excellent. I plan to return soon! Their eggplant parmesan is wonderful and so is their pizza, especially if you enjoy a lighter crust with quality cheeses cooked to perfection. The hostess and waitstaff was delightfully friendly and did such a fine job. I met the... More

We were hunting for a special place to eat on a rainy Sunday evening during our visit to Myrtle Beach, and we found it! The immediate pleasant surprise when we came in the door was live music of smooth romantic jazz. We got the lamb chops with mushrooms, so tasty and tender, followed by the tiramisu and excellent cappuccino. The... More

Went their last night. Food was awesome !! I had chicken marsala and it was to die for. Service was excellent & the owner Mo makes everyone feel at home. They even have background live entertainment on the weekends. Valentino's is the place to go for authentic Italian food.
