“Worth all five stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Great restaurant! Must go place. My son and I went with two couples. We were seated on the outdoor patio beside the water. Dusk came and a fire pit was lit beside our table. Beautiful.
Then came the food! We all had wonderful and well presented meals. Veal peccata, lobster linguine, fettuccine, and mussels that were awsome. My son got the tradional spag/meatballs, they came with two meatballs, that were both the size of apples! He could not finish both, so I ate it. Delicious!my brother, being my brother, ordered the Bbq ribs. He is still raving about them.
Very nice staff! They know their food and have an awsome wine selection. Great evening for all.
Will defiatley return again.

“Great Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

For the second year in a row, we visited Valentino's in Mahone Bay.
Both times we had wonderful, tasty meals both inside as well as outside down by the water.
Great service all around!

“A Lovely Restaurant...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

...serving Italian comfort food with style. There are few prettier restaurants on Nova Scotia's south shore and add to that a gorgeous garden right on the water where you may have before-dinner drinks and dine also, if you choose. This is a warm, one-of-a-kind, family owned and run ristorante where your wishes come first. My husband and I have enjoyed many delightful meals there, choosing from an extensive menu that "covers all the bases". One enormous bonus on a hot summer night is the air conditioned interior. Dine in comfort and return again and again to sample all your favourites!

“Wonderful food, people and ambiance.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

One of the nicest meals we have had in a long time. Home grown and prepared ingredients, family recipes, personal service all in a beautiful riverfront garden!
Highly recommended..... and thanks for the thoughtful shawl for my wife as the evening cooled.
