Once you enter the doorway of Valention's, you are met by very friendly staff, and I can really only mention one, Joseph, who is the front-of-house manager.
This gives you an idea of what to expect from your evening. Food is served promptly, wine dispensed with aplomb, and as the evening progresses, a party atmosphere seems to permeate throughout the entire restaurant.
Typical Italian food is on the menu, and once you become a regular, which has already happened to me, you work your way through the whole lot before you settle on what will become your favourite.
It is not necessary to book in advance, but I'd advise it, just in case there is a last minute rush, for the evenings are very popular for the Bournemouth socialites!

I went to Valentino's last night for the first time with 5 friends. We all had a three course meal with tea and coffee afterwards and it came to £15 each! The portions were really generous and very tasty and the waiters were fun and attentive; just like being in Italy!
I would recommend this restaurant to couples and groups for a casual meal or special occasion. There is a large carpark just next to the restaurant which is cheap and the location is very close to the town centre for post meal drinks.
Loved it and looking forward to going back soon.

Great little Italian restaurant with good basic Italian food at an affordable price. Booked by chance as going to a concert at the BIC. About 200 yards away. Service was excellent; they were aware of time constraints and I would guess that most diners were going to the concert as well. Would definitely book again.
