This place has Ageism all over it. If you don't have white hair and look like your are rich. Forgot about getting a good seat, this is the 2nd time I came here and both times they try and make me move my seat. They tried to sit me in the worst section of the restaurant, even though the place... More

A varied menu paired with a deep wine list makes for a wonderful dinner out. Have been several times and have never been disappointed.

For the main part, the food was creative and very eye-pleasing. The main dinner plate of pasta and osso buco was too salty. The beet salad as a appetizer was ok. Our other dinner was a fish stew and it was good but not overly spectacular. The service was good, the atmosphere is lovely, and if you have a bad... More

From the second we arrived our senses were heightened on many levels. The vib was organized chaos from waiters bustling to please the diners, and the chefs in the open kitchen area creating sumptuous plates of food. I had a steak that was cooked perfectly for me, med rare with the most flavorful seasoning. All that was heard from our... More

Seven couples had made reservations approximately three weeks in advance to enjoy Valentino's latest addition called One Door East. Word on the street was that the additional seating which was contiguous with Valentino's allowed Valentino's to get its liquor license. We all knew that prices were going to be high and servings sizes were going to be small, as that... More

Trendy, Loud, Imaginative Cuisine - could be amazing, but it falls short. The ambience is nice, reclaimed wood, high ceilings, central bar, but the tables are too close together and the noice level is too high. Service was horrible, maybe they were overwhelmed with patrons, but we waited a long time for someone to take our order. Afterwards, a second... More

Next door to Valentino's is his One Door East. Its not Italian its Asian, the decor is industrial with wood, and bare bulb lighting an open kitchen, a central bar. I had a tapa, grilled peach with cheese, ham, granola and maple vinegar.

If you consider yourself a "Foodie" then Valentino Cucina is a must try. We recently visited with a party of five and every dish was quite pleasant on the tastebuds. The service was impeccable and well the chefs are artist.

The food was amazing from the appetizers to the entrees and dessert. The restaurant excels in their homemade pasta with fresh ingredients and modern presentation. We tried nearly all the apps and would highly recommend. The filet, special pasta and scallops were unbelievable. Melt in your mouth. The desserts were indescribable. Absolutely delicious. Ask for David. He was a wonderful... More
