The bartender at Washington Inn recommended this place for pizza. They have a casual patio that you can sit in after placing your order. The pizza was good. They do not have an alcohol license.

The night before Thanksgiving seventeen hungry family members were satisfied with several unusual pizzas. Particularly good were the sausage pizza and the olive topped pizza.

It’s a small pizza shop on the Murray hill road. They don’t have a dine in option but do have a patio which is quite pleasant during the summers. They don’t have a lot of variety of pizzas but any pizza you order is good....For vegetarians you can make your own pizza. The best part about the pizza is the crust which is so remarkably thin and gives it an authentic Italian taste. Must have if you’re a pizza lover.More

Its basically a take out place but they have a side patio. We decided to sit there only because parking was simple on that end of the street vs. where most of the better places are. Hubby and I each ordered our own pizza and...we split their valentino salad. There was nothing wrong with anything we had but not as tasty as we would have liked. My artichoke pizza had a lot of artichoke but really no other flavor. Hubby had the deluxe and still with so many toppings he was not impressed. Salad was OK. They were busy with alot of take out orders while we were sitting there so it must be a popular place in the area. We would not go back- other places to try out.More

Stopped in after seeing a sign in the window saying "pizza by the slice". Should have walked out after I saw how it was prepared - they used already baked slices that looked like day old leftovers, then the old guy working there literally counted...5 slices of pepperoni per slice of pizza (there was room for plenty more) and scattered a few shreds of cheese on top - I'm surprised he didn't count those too because there were so few he could have! When I asked if he could put on some more cheese, he said he'd have to charge extra. Then he tossed the slices in the oven to reheat. It looked a little better after cooking, but you could actually see just a few melted lines of cheese - nothing close to a layer. The crust tasted like cardboard and there was a stale odor to it when you held it up to eat. I wish I hadn't even had the few bites that I did before throwing it out. It was totally disgusting.More

I have eaten an estimated 1000 pizzas from Valentino's in the past 20 years. OK...I have gotten 1000 pizzas; my family has helped me eat them. We also get at least 1 or 2 white pizzas with artichokes and a couple of the red...either plain...or with pepperoni. The crust isn't thick....and it isn't thin.....just perfect.More

Walked over from our hotel on a Saturday night. There were plenty of tables on the patio, we ordered a white pizza and the works. Both were very tasty and well made. Service was good.

My husband and I wanted some Italian last night and were too lazy to go out. We would normally go to delivermefood.com, but lately after inconsistent service from the different restaurants we used, we decided to look elsewhere. We found Valentino's online based on some...great reviews. So we figured - what the heck it's worth a try. The menu was nice and basic, which always is a good sign that the restaurant does a few things and does them well. The delivery charge is $8, which is a little pricey, but since it seems they deal with the business lunch crowd, I can understand. Since we were also feeding my Dad we decided to order a few different items to make the delivery charge worth it and then have left overs. My Dad ordered the Rigatoni, which came with a roll, small house salad and romano cheese cup. The pasta also came with 2 large meatballs. All of this for $7.80! My Italian father loved it! He said it was simple and delicious and he is hard to please. My husband ordered the Rigatoni Parmesan which is similar to the above except the meatballs are smashed over the top and cheese is melted all over it. His also came with a roll and a salad for only $8.80. He raved over the roll, which he let me taste and I must say it was amazing! I had the White Pizza with Artichokes. OMG, it was amazing! The crust was unreal, truly the best crust I have ever had on a pizza. I ordered a small for $9.25 and ate 3 pieces, there are three left and I'm looking forward to finishing them today! I also ordered a side salad, which was larger than what came with the meal and it cost $3.50. The dressing was great and the salad was very fresh, well worth the price. We also ordered a large pizza with double cheese, kalamata olives, sausage, mushrooms, pepperoni and green peppers. It was $19.25 for a large. It was quite good but had become a little soggy by the time I tasted a bite. I think our mistake was ordering all the toppings. The crust is better with less on it and when we order again - and we will - we will stick to just a cheese and pepperoni and let the crust be the star. Obviously with all the other food we have almost the entire pie left over, but I think it will re-heat well in a cast iron skillet. Lastly was dessert. They serve one thing and that is the best freaking Tiramisu I have had in my life! For $3.50 it is like heaven. It is small but decadent and just enough. Actually, I would be happy with a couple of these for dinner. Just absolutely amazing!!! So if you live in the area - well worth the delivery fee and if you don't this place is worth driving to!!!More

Thin home-made crust, quality toppings and delicious cheese. I've been through Little Italy enough times to say this is the best pizzeria.

How is it that this tiny family-run pizzeria has qualified for a spot among the top ten of over 780 restaurants in Cleveland? We Clevelanders of 35+ years "discovered" this spot only last year when The Plain Dealer raved about the white pizza with artichokes...and olives. After "Friday in the Courtyard" at the Cleveland Museum of Art, we went up to Murray Hill and confirmed for ourselves how very tasty this thin-crust pizza is. So remarkably good that we returned twice over the summer...and we live across town. Still given that the only on-site dining is definitely no-frills outdoor seating available only a few months of the year, Valentino's is hardly a top ten experience.More
