“Another great meal!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This was my second visit to Valentinos with my boyfriend, and it didn't disappoint! We shared a starter of garlic cheesy bread which I had been looking forward to from our last visit, it's really tasty but not for those on a first date as its rather pungent!
We had the spaghetti carbonara and fillet steak mains, and were very impressed! The fillet steak was tender and flavourful, and at under £20 served with onion rings, tomatoes, mushrooms and fries, it was very good value! The food is always piping hot and portions are very generous, which is another reason why I really enjoy dining here.
Staff were friendly and polite and we were not constantly bothered by them which meant we could enjoy our meal without having our conversations interrupted.
Would be here every weekend if we lived a little closer!
First class restaurant in Worcester, we will be back!

“Best Italian in town, extremely reasonable prices”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

My boyfriend and I regularly visit Valentinos , along with other friends and family. The food is nothing other than fantastic, extremely well priced, and proper portions. This is why we visit. Wine menu is good too. You probably should book a table as it gets quite busy, also great location within easy walking distance to town, I would fully recommend Valentinos to anyone looking for good well priced food, it ticks all of the boxes for me. Infact I have just returned from there completely stuffed :) thanks valentinos x

“lovely good Italian”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Great little proper Italian restaurant close to the City centre. We booked a table for the Saturday night and a good job too as within 30 mins or so it was packed out, but I didn't see anyone being turned away. Service was friendly, the menu is an Italian food lovers delight (brought back good memories of eating in Rome, although maybe not quite the same. . . extra Parmesan!) the Pizzas certainly look fantsatic the pasta was well cooked and seasoned and proper Italian sized portions. The only niggle was the length of time the service took after we gave our order, and the Bruschetta was cold. . .it would have been so much nicer if it was slightly warm. . but little niggles that could be sorted easily, other than that a very very enjoyable italian.

Dear Heather S,
Many thanks for your positive words on Saturday night with us.
We're glad that you enjoyed your evening, and your meal.
Apologies if service was deemed slow, but we try to not rush the food out to customer, as we don't want them to feel pressured.
Regarding the Bruschetta, we always freshly oven grill the oiled bread, and add on our wonderful chilled, homemade tomato salsa at the point of serving. This has always been extremely popular, and most people love the contrast of just toasted bread, with chilled salsa.
However, we do appreciate your opposing view on this, especially as the winter months draw in.
Kind regards,
Valentinos

“Traditional Italian food”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Looking for somewhere to eat quite late on a Saturday night and this place were really accommodating and managed to squeeze a table for two in. Great friendly atmosphere, there were a couple of big family parties in there but didn't spoil it for other diners. Great menu, very reasonably priced too! Wine choices were good if you wanted to splash out but the house red ( Merlot) was equally reasonable and very good. Owner comes to check everything's okay and will offer you a traditional Italian drink after your meal......try it, it's delicious!

Definitely go back again, too many other dishes that need to be tasted. I'd recommend making a reservation just in case you're not so lucky as we were.

“Very good”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

4 out of 5 not 5 as the service was a little slow, it was far too warm in there and the portions were absolutely massive! Other than that couldn't fault it

Dear LGB186424,
Many thanks for your feedback.
Presumably you came in on Saturday night, as we were very busy, and sometimes service is a little slower. However, we never try to rush customers, and prefer to give them time to relax and make conversation, rather than feel hurried.
The portion size is a common comment, and we believe it sets us apart from popular chain establishments, which can often serve portions leaving the customer feeling short-changed!
We hope to see you back soon,
Valentinos Restaurant
