Good, service, ambiance and price are the best combination ever, we had the best meal in our second visit. Arturo and all his staff are amazing and everything is perfectly taken care of at all times. A pleasure to go out to this restaurant.

We were in town for a conference, and I found the original owner’s picture endearing in my restaurant search. We assumed the restaurant was an authentic casual place, but when we showed up, we felt underdressed. I told my friend that it didn’t really matter, if this is truly a good restaurant, the service will be great. It was! Our server was kind and open to recommending what suited our needs best. We ended up sharing the pasta sampler and finishing with the lemon gelato and tiramisu. Everything was excellent, from the bruschetta at the start to the biscotti and drinkable chocolate at the end, all of which were complementary. This establishment is superb!

Got there right at 5:30 scored a seat at the bar Eduardo was on duty he puts on quite the show making drinks and providing excellent customer service. Luis took my order and started off with outstanding bruschetta the tomatoes are so fresh and flavorful then comes the house made bread with the anchovy and garlic sauce pour lots of it on there. Then came the house made pasta with the meat sauce unbelievable. The wine by the glass selection is unparalleled. Unmatched anywhere that I travel!

Impeccable service, and our dinners were wonderful! I loved the traditional atmosphere and forgot to purchase a cookbook. A definite second visit when we are back in SLC.

This place is the real deal! From menu to service. Everything 6 Star! Giovanni was our Server again this year. He’s a Fan Favorite…… exceptional knowledge of the menu and its preparation. You have to have the pasta appetizer sampler to start. I had the pasta and seafood in a red sauce. “Full of Flavor”! My son ordered the rigatoni with the Chef’s bolognese twist per my sons request. “He ate it all”. Great wine selection. I wish they had a few more Bourbon Selections. However, they have High West which is a Park City Local Distillery and my favorite so I’m good. This place is hopping’! The girls at the hostess stand are very friendly and personal. The entire staff is professional. Make a reservation or good luck.

This is a great spot for Italian in SLC! Sooo much better than Veneto which we ate at a week or so ago. Loved the atmosphere. The food was delicious. We shared a Caesar which was prepared tableside…sort of. We had to encourage our server to be front and center rather than have me turn completely around. Really? The entrees were lasagna which may have been the best I ever had. It was a huge portion! My wife ordered a veal dish which was outstanding as well. We just could not get past the service. It was poor to terrible. Tony just didn’t want to engage at all. No dialogue happening here. My wife asked him three times to tell us the type of crab in the risotto. Other servers nearby were super engaging and made it fun. Jose in particular made us jealous we weren’t in his section. Pistachio gelato was good, not great. The small cup of chocolate was devine. No doubt 5 stars if the service was at least average. Corkage was $25. Would definitely go back again assuming we could request our server.

I should have believed the other underwhelmed reviews on this page. We flew to SLC for a special event so wanted a special dinner to highlight the event. The atmosphere and service were outstanding. My husband and I each had an appetizer, entree, and shared a one mixed fruit drink, with tipping and the $11 valet fee our bill came to $230 for not a lot of food. I would not have minded the price if the food had at least tasted slightly special and had any flavor at all. The texture of the salmon/mustard sauce entree was excellent but still not a lot of flavor, but my lemon caper chicken had absolutely no flavor; the tomato with my tomato/burrata appetizer was green and unripe, and the shrimp/sauce on watermelon part of the appetizer was just an odd combo. Will skip this restaurant on future visits.

My meal was very good but expected to be better based on the rating/ranking and the reviews. The cocktails were a great added surprise.

Where to begin with this review. If you do not visit this restaurant at least once in your life you are doing yourself a disservice. From the moment you walk into this gem you are transported to Italy. The decor is beautiful and makes you feel right at home. Very classy with the white tablecloths/napkins, and waiters in black ties, but doesn't feel stuffy at all. The restaurant was packed, which told me we were about to embark on an amazing meal. Boy was I right. Our waiter was phenomenal. He steered us in the right direction throughout our entire meal. We decided to start with a glass of champagne while we looked over the menu. It felt like the right thing to do. While we perused the menu and sipped our champagne the bread basket came with a dipping sauce. When I say dipping sauce that is an understatement. I could put that on everything. It was divine. Not wanting to fill up on bread we only had one piece. We started with the Caesar salad. It was good, but when you put the garlic dipping sauce on it, it brought the salad to another level. When I have an Italian meal I like to start with soup or salad, then move to the pasta course, on to meat then if there is room café and dessert. The waiter must have read my mind. He recommended the pasta sampler plate. This delightful plate came with a sample of four different pastas - a butternut squash ravioli, spinach ricotta ravioli, gnocchi with wonderful marinara, and spaghetti carbonara like pasta. The raviolis were delicious, but the gnocchi were the most pillowey dumplings I have ever tasted. The carbonara like pasta was my favorite. When they serve the dish they present the pasta in the pan and then plate it table side on warm plates that melt the cheese they place on it before plating. All I can say is wow. Next came our main course. We decided on the short rib special and the veal with mushroom sauce. Again we could not get enough. Every bite was better than the first. It was so good!!! A lovely couple sat down next to us, which made it an even more enjoyable evening. I forgot to mention the red wine suggested by our waiter. I wanted something dry and full bodied from Italy. He suggested his favorite. It was absolutely perfect. It complimented the meal beautifully. At the end of the meal we asked him to bring the perfect dessert. He brought the limoncello sorbet drizzled with fresh honey. I have had limoncello sorbet, but never like this. The honey cut through the tartness like a dream. In all my dining experiences this was the most perfect meal I have ever had. My co-worker and I both said it was like an out of body experience. I am already planning my next trip to Valter's. If I had to choose my last meal on earth it would be any or all dishes from this amazing restaurant.

The food was really very good but not really that much better than the Italian food I've had elsewhere. I would recommend this is you really want to treat someone special as they do have 5 start service. But just for a normal dinner nigh out not so much.

My wife and I, accompanied by a friend, enjoyed dinner at Valter's and it was beyond our expectations. It is true Italian fare, pared with the old-school European-trained formality in all of its wait staff. I cannot even describe how authentic and delicious the food was - at all stages: from the bruschetta, to the bread's dipping sauce, to the Caesar's salad made tableside, to the pasta sampler, to the chicken marsala. It was by far our best meal after a week of skiing, and a great way to put the bow on the vacation. Be smart and make reservations. And show up hungry.
