“Good Italian Food and Yummy Bread”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

Hubby and I went to Valentino's on the recommendation of friends and we loved it. They have a great Early Bird Menu. The food is fresh and well prepared. Portions are good and it is very reasonable. Hubby has been know to eat two baskets of bread....they serve it with dipping oil and it is delish!

“Good food, loud music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

The specials were all loved by my party. I had an old standby, Chicken Parmagiana and it was good. We had a reservation for 7 and when we got there we were going to be seated directly in front of the live music. That would have been painful, so I politely requested another table and they were accommodating. The service was good and prompt and the food delicious.

“THAT'S ITALIAN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

We have wanted to try Valentino's Italian Restaurant for a long while, and had the opportunity to go there a couple of weeks ago, and we were not disappointed. This is one of the better Italian Restaurants in the area, and has some great early bird specials. We decided to try them one Sunday evening for the early birds, and were pleasantly surprised at the great quality of the food and the excellent service. The Bride always likes to try Spaghetti and Meatballs the first time we go to an Italian Restaurant. I had a nice Veal Parm. with Angle Hair Pasta. A very nice, cold salad served with warm Italian Bread started our dinners. Each meal was priced at only $10.99 each, plus soft drinks. The service was fast and pleasant, and not overbearing. This is now near the top of our Italian Restaurant list, and we can't wait to try some of the other dishes. It is a place that we can recommend to everyone to enjoy a delicious Italian meal. It is also open for lunch.

Been there every night for dinner, during my two week stay, thank God I found this restaurant. No other place compares to Valentino Original Italian Restaurant... Thanks staff they were all great. Loved the new owners. They were funny and appreciative.
