This restaurant may not look too impressive from the outside, but the food is amazing and the staff are very friendly. On one of our visits we chatted to the chef and discussed various dishes with her to aid our choices. You can take your own drinks which means you have more money to spend on the wonderful food!

Good food, varied menu, friendly and efficient service. Great value gem, just off Ripley Market Place. Just moved into the town. This is set to become a regular haunt :)

We live in Alfreton and often visit Valentino’s for special occasions.

The menu is not huge but does have a good choice.

The soups are fantastic. Always homemade. The tomato and mascarpone is to die for. We went last night for a late birthday celebration and the soup of the day was minestrone with bacon-also delicious.

I had chicken Valentinos which is always nice. Get lots of chunks of chicken, it really is good value for money. You get a slice of garlic bread with a main meal too which is good as often in restaurants you would have to order this in addition.

There were 6 of us and the only complaint was from one member of the party who ordered spaghetti bolognaise and thought it was a bit dry.

The chef is very accommodating and will make anything not on the menu if she has the ingredients!

Definitely worth a visit!

Can also take your own alcohol now which makes it even better value for money!

Been here on a couple of occasions and always found the food to be excellent.
Great selection of dishes, I would have thought something for most tastes.
Freindly welcoming staff and the owner\chef always comes over and explains specials etc.
Also good value. Would reccomend it highly.

One minor point - there are no opening times in the window and have on occasion found it difficult to get through to them to book a table. Not something to put you off as the food more than makes up for this minor niggle.
