“Great Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Had the pleasure of eating at Valentino's recently and from the time the front door was opened to the smell of "real Italian cooking" to the end of the meal it was delightful!! The service was just right ... not overwhelming, but just enough of the right touch of service! Our waiter was attentive and great with explanation of all the daily specials. The meal itself was wonderful. The red "gravy" is subtle and delicious. My pasta and chicken were cooked just right. A place I would highly recommend to any local or visitor. It's great to have the original family back serving great Italian food. Just don't be confused by the other restaurant with almost the same name ( Valentino's II ).

“Stop here!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Again, we went with 40others to Valentinos in surfside. Do yourself an Italian favor and stop here for dinner. I had Veal Parmigian . IT was delicious. The sauce is so great and portions were abundant. James was our waiter and he was both curtious, helpful and professional. Great night. So glad to have you back. Thank you.

“The Real Original Valentino's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

I rate an Italian restaurant by their sauce and food. This is a very small place but the owner and family members are part of the wonderful staff. My Eggplant Parm was fabulous. We loved the ambience and John's singing was a hit. We will be back. Service was very attentive. They do have Early Bird menu, too.

“Lovely Atmosphere and Good Food!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Be aware -- there are two restaurants in the area with almost the same name -- this review is for Valentino's, NOT Valentino's II, which is owned by someone else. My wife and I visited this restaurant just in time to take advantage of their Early Bird Specials. We were not disappointed at all. The portions were a very good size and the service was excellent. If you're looking for some good Italian food while in the Surfside Beach area, make it a point to stop here. You won't regret it!!

Ken at the hotel recommended this restaurant and it was excellent! If what you want is not on the menu, the chef will cook it for you!
