The food is ok... nothing special. Delivery service is simply horrible, it takes them over an hour to deliver, and nobody wants to eat cold food. Their excuse is... they only have one delivery driver, if that is the case it would be nice to let customers know that the food will take longer than expected and it would be... More

Went here tonight for dinner, my hubby & I decided to have the Italian Cheese Steak which is NY sirloin, mozzarella, sauteed bell peppers, onions, crispy potatoes. However when the waitress brought us our food and we began to eat it it was soooooooooo spicy. We are not spicy people so we figured maybe there was something listed on the... More

Every once and a while, my wife and I want a quick Italian meal....I like pizza, she is into veal and pasta..Valentinos offers both. The meal always comes quickly and the kitchen is accurate...no foul ups. The pizza is good and the veal is fine.but there is no WOW factor. Also the noise level is a challenge....having a conversation is... More

Very popular pizzeria and trattoria in Snowbird Season. Often line out of the door especially on weekends. Much quieter off season. Clean, well run restaurant with lots of great choices including vegetarian and gluten free. Gluten free pizza outrageously good - Quatro formaggi (four cheese) my favorite! My husband enjoys the meatballs as well as the clam and mussel pasta... More

I note that this place has good reviews generally, and I think people have widely varied expectations with respect to pizza. Having said that, my wife and I did not like the pizza here. It was thick and heavy and the tomato had a bitter taste. We ate less than half of the pizza. The wine pour was very short.... More

This restaurant was basically empty on a Friday night, which gave me cause for concern. The first appetizer to arrive was mussels in white sauce. These were the blandest mussels I have tastes. The addition of salt and pepper did not help. The calamari was not much better. By this time I was in full blown apprehensive mode. Entrees arrived... More

Been having dinner at Valentino for years and have never been disappointed. Service and food are top notch. We often go in for appetizers; tonight we both had Mussels Robb in hot marinara sauce and shared an order Meat Balls Alforno which was more than enough for a couple. We just love their hot garlic rolls dipped in garlic. In... More

Cute place and nice service! The Grouper Piccata? was wonderful and the Ice/ coffe/ caramel dessert was to stay for! We dated going back the next night but went to PHO 99 as a new treat

Great place to eat. Decent ambiance. Was quick to take our order and not long to get our pizza. I did think the prices were a little high, not bad. But when the pizza came it was LARGE! And it tasted great. We enjoyed it and will be back!
