Experience the setting, decor, hospitality, and the authentic food; fantastic. It's a place to feel comfortable, welcome, and well-fed. I'm now a regular.

“Just like being at a Family home cooked meal. Awesome!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2011

The atmosphere in this quaint restaurant is absolutely wonderful. The home style cooking is above anything you could imagine. The owner/chef Val has such passion for cooking you can taste it in the food. The leg of lamb was outstanding. Joanne, the owner/ hostess was so pleasant and made us feel right at home. When I return to Nova Scotia I will definately be going back to Valentino's Restaurante in Mahone Bay.

“A highlight of our trip to Nova Scotia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2011

Valentino's was such an unexpected find... who knew a small fishing village would have such a fine dining opportunity? But from the moment we walked in we were treated to food and service second to none. Chef Valentino created a memorable meal, including the chef's inspiration salad, the mussels, the seafood pasta, and the incredible full lobster. The dessert selection was heavenly, so make sure to leave some room if you can when you visit (and you must visit). While Valentino worked his magic in the kitchen, his wife Joanne worked her magic as our server, but it felt more like she was our hostess in her home. Attentive, thoughtful, and lovely to chat with, her presence added grace and charm to an already exceptional experience. Thank you, Valentino and Joanne, for giving us a perfect start to our trip to Nova Scotia!
