The bread! Unbelievable. And the service - personalized. We felt like part of the family visiting Nonna except that the variety was even more impressive! There were almost as many specials as items on the menu. We really enjoyed the evening and the owners were omnipresent ensuring that all of their guests were treated like regulars. Thanks to the entire... More

We visit Sal and Mo every year on our trip to Myrtle Beach. It's the best! You cannot find better service or food or atmosphere anywhere.

They claim to be the original but their not.. You want authentic Valentinos?.... Go to Valentino's II. There you will be treated like family. The owner and her family run the restaurant and you will not leave disappointed.

Valentino's is the most authentic Italian restaurant I've eaten in since leaving jersey 23 years ago. The food and service is 2nd to none. You can appreciate the Italian's love for food at Valentino's. Kudo's to Moe's and the staff.

Loved this place. Food and service was great. The bread is awesome. Everything we had was good. There were 8 of us. The owner greeted us at the door and took such good care of us. He even gave us free cappuccinos at the end of our meal. A must place to eat. Large portions and enough to take home.

We came here as an off-the-cuff decision. We were immediately seated and catered to by our waiter, Chris. Don't be fooled by appearances - this place looks like a pizza parlor, but is so much more. Clearly, the pasta is hand made, and the meals are to die for. Each of us ordered something different, and we all cleaned our... More

My parents, boyfriend and I came to eat here after reading excellent reviews on Yelp. We do not usually do Italian restaurants when we are vacation but my boyfriend found the restaurant and mentioned that we should try it. Everything was amazing from start to end! I can't remember ever eating at an Italian restaurant that I liked better. The... More

Chicken Parm is worthy of the praise it has received, the portion is big enough to share. Lobster ravioli and spaghetti and meatball dinners also were praised from our group. The kids portions were equally large and priced reasonably.

Oh, wow! The bread was so good! Husband had veal ala john which was very tasty. I had the lobster ravioli. Definitely not from SAMs! The music seemed very canned at first, but then I started to really like it. Not too loud.
