We ate at Valentinos again today. We have become regulars because the food is so good. We tried the "Rowlett Special" today!!!!!OMG. It was amazing. I was expecting nothing less than 5 stars but Val out did himself today! It was a 6 star meal and my husband agreed. It was lightly breaded chicken, with cheese ravioli, mushrooms, and heavenly...

I have never had such horrible food. Our entire table hated our food. We left without eating it and went somewhere else! Even the bread was cold and a joke.

Valentino's is by far the best Italian restaraunt around. Val and his whole family make you feel welcome and the food is delicious. We love eating at the restaurant and we also take advantage of take out when we don't want to cook at home. Chicken ala Bistro, Lasagna, and Val's Lasagna are our family favorites. The bread is also... More

Lasagna is very good. Chicken with lemon sauce and capers is delicious. Alfredo sauce is the bomb. And, the bread is great! Not too garlicky. Salad OK.

We ate dinner here while in Rowlett tx. It was a quaint place and the food, service and atmosphere were outstanding. It is still owned by the same family and attracts many of the older residents of Rowlett tx. A great place for Italian food!

Our new favorite restaurant!!!! The food is like you are in Italy and the family that owns and runs the place are so sweet and welcoming. Makes you think you are a guest in their home. The food is always fresh, well prepared and wonderful. The bread is so yummy. The wait staff are very nice and always very attentive.... More

My family and I have enjoyed Valentino's since it opened. The food is fabulous and Val and his family make everyone feel welcome. We always take out-of-town guests here and they love the food and atmosphere. It's one of my family's favorite restaurants anywhere!

I am very picky about Italian food. I lived 12 years in the NYC, NY area and got spoiled on very good Italian food. This place delivers. Though the pizza is OK (if you like a cheese-based pizza), everything else that I've tried has exceeded expectations. My favorite is the Parmesan Chicken. It is always very crowded. If you don't...

Valentine's is so great. Food is some of the best Italian food around. We go all the time because it is so close to home, but if it wasn't we would definitely travel to eat there. The staff is super friendly and attentive and they get the food out so quick. Yum, yum, yum. Couldn't recommend it more-a must try!

We were told that this was the best Italian Restaurant in Rowlett and we were not disappointed! Everything was made fresh, including the salad dressings. My Father in a Law was loving the homemade Blue Cheese dressing. The spaghetti was fresh and delicious! Our waiter was awesome and quick in getting our meals to us. He gave us good advice on...
