Awesome all around. I am very pleased that I went out of my way to find this restaurant. Plus, since it was a Saturday night live entertainment was had.

The Atmosphere was great! The night we were there they had a singer doing Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra songs. My granddaughter gave a suggestion and they sang it. We had a great time.

Recommended to eat here by some local and very glad we did. Made reservations on line and had our seats right away. Fresh bread and very speedy service. From the time we ordered only here 40 mins and we were not rushed at all. Husband...and I both had lasagna.More

Food was good at a previous visit. However I called to place a to go order today and the woman who answered the phone said can I put you on hold? I said yes and after holding for more than 7 minutes I hung up...and called back. The woman who answered asked me how she could help, I told her that I wanted to place a to go order and she immediately said ma’am I have to put you on hold in an annoyed tone and proceeded to do just that without giving me a chance to respond . I waited on the phone for 3 minutes this time before hanging up, I won’t order from them again and I ordered from another restaurant who was very polite and accommodating.More

Arrived at our resort, needed a late dinner, and looked up restaurants near us on Travelocity. Chose Valentino's for the variety and 5-star rating and were not disappointed. Bill, our waiter, was outstanding explaining the origin of the owner, offering bonus samples of their food...and thoroughly enjoyed our choices. All of the staff were friendly and the whole atmosphere of the place was enjoyable. I would recommend this restaurant over the "big signage restaurants" in the area based on price and quality.More

Our last night of vacation, we made reservations but didn't know they had live music. Our table was in the room with the musician and it was loud so they graciously moved us to another room that was quieter. The owner stopped by several times...to make sure everything was okay. Food was good. My niece devoured her spaghetti.More

We are locals, before the virus we would go here often. First time back in a while, Sal the owner is still there and walking around. They had music, nice soft dinner music. The food is still good, we had a stuffed artichoke, really good....For dinner we had chicken Francese very good, brockarobe with sausage very good, a couple of beers. They are still doing a good job, service is good.More

Broad Italian selection. Timely service but never rushed throughout the evening to enjoy your meal and company. Generous serving sizes. Being Italian I can vouch for the authenticity of the food. A must for those looking for a great Italian meal.

The menu is broad and quite authentic to a typical Northern restaurant. Appetizers , salads and entrees are well done and carry great flavor and freshness . The ambiance is basic with simple chairs , tables and wall murals . Great bar service and beverages...too ! Couldn’t believe how many wonderful Biden and Democrat supporters my friends and I met while dining … great experience overall .More
