“BRAVO !!!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

This was absolutely the best restaurant. We ate there both nights while in Mahone Bay. The meals were delicious. The owners were so friendly. I live North Carolina and loved our trip to Nova Scotia. I would go back just to eat at Valentino's again. Thanks for a great meal and for the after dinner beverages.

“An excellent meal”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We (3 adults and an 11 year old) recently had dinner at Valentino's. We were seated in the beautiful garden. The food was exquisite. The mussels were probably the best that I have ever had. All of the entrees (pasta, steak, lamb) were delicious. The dessert was a chocolate cherry cheesecake which is to die for. Service was pleasant. We will be back when we return to Mahone Bay.

“Romantic & delicious all in one!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is a quaint little Italian Restaurant where their garden area overlooks Mahone Bay. Lovely spot to dine. The food was delicious and well served. Our waitress was very informative with lots of specials and information on the food items. Recommended great wine pairing for us as well. This was our most expensive meal in the area, but, it was worth it in location and taste.

Many Thanks (Molte Grazie) for your review.
We certainly strive to provide a great quality product by using local fresh or from our garden produce,local fresh fish and also our homemade pasta and sauces.
I will agree, we have an extensive choice of wines to be enjoy with any meal choice.
We are so happy that while dining you were able to enjoy our beautiful private garden patio over looking Mahone Bay.
If you ever visit Mahone Bay again we hope that Valentino's will be your number one ( #1) choice
Di nuovo Grazie - (again Thank you)

“A little bit of Italy in NS”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

It's a family run restaurant with small staff but very personal service. I think we were served by the owner's wife who was fantastic as was her son (we assume) who waited on us. A really lovely restaurant which I would recommend to anyone

“Romantic Dinner”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

We decided to try Valentino's after reading all of the wonderful reviews and we were not disappointed. I had a beautifully prepared seafood risotto and my wife had the Lobster Surf and Turf which she enjoyed immensely. We had dinner outside on the lawn overlooking Mahoney Bay on a nice summer night. Our only regret is that we will be returning home soon and will not have the opportunity to return for another wonderful meal at Valentino's.
