I drive by Valentino daily and I'm looking at it from my office window as I write this review, but somehow never tried the place until last night. And last night was a challenging night for anyone in the restaurant business - Valentine's Day. Trying out a new restaurant for a Valentine's dinner is only a little less foolish than... More

Everyone in our large party had a great meal at Antonio's. We were in the private dining room, which was beautiful and the service was great. Very fun evening!

We really enjoyed our dining experience Here for my wife BD. My wife thought the shrimp fusilli was excellent. I had bronzino and the fish dish was probably one of the three best that I have tasted in my life. My son loved his pasta dish with scallops. Savory chocolate cake for dessert. Go there.

We dined on a delicious meal for New Years Eve and nothing disappointed. The food was terrific! We started by arriving early to enjoy a drink at the bar and moved to the table for delightfully different menu. The service was terrific! My only complaint and they are aware - it is so darn cold inside! They know it as... More

This asian-fusion tapas bar and restaurant is an absolute necessity in Fort Lauderdale. Great drink menu, fantastic bar tenders, and the best tapas food in Fort Lauderdale (think Miami Beach Drunken Dragon). Very impressed with the thoughtfulness in the food, the design, the talent and all around great effort. Must do spot in Fort Lauderdale, especially Friday happy hour.
