“VERY TASTY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

One of the best Italian places around! Very good authentic food, sometimes, Jorge tends to oversalt---but non the less, very good! One tip, tho, Jorge, try to keep your salad plates in the fridge, so when it is served, its cold! Also olive oil is a must on salads!

“Very nice Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2011

My family and I have been here many times and I have never had a bad experience or a bad meal. It is a BYOB and their prices are reasonable. I have always been able to get a table and the staff is very friendly. The owner has stopped by our table more than once to see how the meal is. I recommend that you give Valentina's a try.
