“Great classic Italian”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Our first time here was just by chance - we were in the area and stopped in for dinner. Since then we go back whenever we can. Geat Italian food, great portions, and great prices, all in a nice environment.

We live on the east side of Rochester, so Valicia's is a little bit of a trip (west side of Rochester) compared to staying on the east side of town. But we make the trip frequently because it is well worth it. I've tried most Italian in town and Valecia's is one of my few top spots.

“Great Italian Food!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Joe runs an exceptional restaurant, everytime we've been in there the service was great and the food outstanding. The cocktails are priced reasonable and so is the food. Would I go back there again, darn straight. Also we have been in there when it was packed with parties, did our service go down the drain, NO WAY! The waitress was very attentive and the food was delivered in a timely manner. Kudos to the gang at Valicias!

“Our party was exceptional”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

We have arranged or attended a number of parties at Valicia's and always had a good experience. We were in charge of a party for 80 guests this past Sunday and did not have a single complaint. That's unusual. I think the sensible approach is to communicate well with the staff, both a week in advance, then right before the dinner to confirm your expectations and number of guests. They seem really eager to accomodate.There are a number of choices for buffets, all reasonably priced. We had a request for a gluten-free meal, which was no problem. We had a wine, beer, and pop station which worked out well with minimum waste and expense, replenished as consumed. We brought in a cake which they cut and served. All the food was hot and there was plenty. We'll be back!

“Not Recommended for a Party.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Baby Shower, 60 people invited and set up for. Only 50 people showed, and food ran out. Valicia's didn't refill the pans, People were scraping the sides of the pan for food. Service bad, waitresses hard to locate. Red Fedele's service far superior. The food did taste good though, guest walked away hungry. All the buffet's I have had and been too, I have never seen food run out. Only at Valicia's. Good thing it was all woman, if men were invited, what would we have done.
