Description: Valentina's Sevenoaks restaurant is the newest addition to this charming family of Italian deli restaurants. As well as a hugely well stocked delicatessen and a range of over 200 wines, the Sevenoaks branch also has a bustling 50 cover restaurant. The family run group has been satisfying southwest London locals from its Putney branch since 1991 and customers south of the M25 are already doling out rave reviews for the Sevenoaks branch. Enticing window displays, capable and friendly service as well as a classic Italian menu, reasonable prices and authentic Italian coffee all garner praise. Dishes like Capella Romana (tagliatelle with Nonna's meatballs, wrapped in speck and oven baked, served with a bolognese sauce) utilize tried and tested family recipes and quality produce. Wherever possible, ingredients here change with the seasons, and egg pasta is made fresh on the premises daily. Slightly less Italian but no less beloved, breakfasts of scrambled eggs and smoked salmon are also very popular.

Excellent meal, on the whole best Italian in Sevenoaks. Great service and authentic feel about the evening. We will return

A group of nine of us went on Saturday (11th Feb) - the food was brilliant as was the service. The menu was slightly unusual with different combinations but they all worked and it is somewhere we all agreed we would be going back to.

A family atmosphere with very good food. also nice to pop in just for coffee. Even if we haven't been for a while we are greeted as friends. Not too noisy and has a lovely delicatessen. When my husband fancied something not on the menu they were happy to make if for him!

I have visited this restaurant a few times now, each time the food has been superb - fresh and imaginative. The service was exceptional, especially Marco who is very friendly, professional and nothing is too much trouble.
Situated at the very end of the high street its a bit tucked away - but what a gem. The deli attached is amazing with lots of yummy things to buy for yourself or for gifts for friends.
I have also had breakfast here - well, it was huge... I could'nt move for the rest of the day!
Try it for yourself.

I have taken my family to this restaurant a number of times,the food has been consistently good with 1 or 2 highlights. My favourite dish consists of parma ham wrapped pasta and meatballs which is both filling and very tasty. The layout makes it feel more like a cafe than a restaurant however I haven't been in the evening when the lighting perhaps would make it feel more intimate.
