The food was phenomenal!! The portions are huge, we probably ate 1/3 of our plate, plus add the delicious knot-bread, you better bring a truck to get the leftovers home!!

I have now eaten at Valentino's twice & it is really good authentic Italian family owned restaurant. The menu is good , but not overwhelming. We had the calamari & it was cooked just right. It was crispy & tender, not chewy at all. The marinara sauce is to die for. So much so, I had to come back for... More

They have a great menu with lots of options, and always a friendly staff. My favorite is the signature bread pudding dessert.

The server was attentive and the food was delicious. However, the only reason I didn't rate this higher was because we felt rushed. Our food came out before we were finished with our salads and then we felt pressured to finish our entrees so they could turn our table.

Ample portions, always take some home. Rolls are excellent. Is very busy on weekends, but worth the wait.

Sweet family from Italy owns and runs this restaurant. The pasta sampler is great & a very good deal. The rolls are huge, fresh & tasty. Too bad its not BYOB or we would come quite often. The service is always top notch. It can get quite crowded b/c everyone enjoys the family so very much!!

The best dish I tasted was the alfredo which is usually my least favorite. The sauce was not great, but I enjoyed the bread.

We decided to come here because wait was too long at our first 2 choices. Turned out to be a good decision. The pizza is New York Style, extra cheesy and delicious. We ordered a medium pepperoni for 2 of us, had enough to bring home. The calamari was cooked perfectly, but very bland on it's own. It was accompanied... More
