Went to Valentina's using a Taste card last night with 2 friends. The waiters were very welcoming and attentive throughout, even when there was an issue with me giving them an out of date Taste card (my boyfriend had taken the 'in-date' one away with him by accident but they were happy with photo evidence!)
The three starters were lovely; the caprese was fresh and vibrant with oozy and delicious mozzarella, garlic pizza bread - large, thin, crispy and tasty, and the fritto misto was good, although the one prawn had been fried in it's shell, which was fine with me as I just took the head off and ate with the shell on but a lot of people may not have liked the extra crunch. Some kind of dip would have been nice too.
Main courses were delicious - Penne Napoletana with nonna's meatballs, spaghetti vongole (clams were plump, fresh and salty - just as they should be) and cappella romana. The cappella romana was very unusual and tasty although maybe a little dense with pasta and not quite enough sauce.
Overall very good service, food and good value (£20 a head including drinks and tip), will be going back and hopefully visiting the deli too.
