Love this place. The food, the service, and the atmosphere is great. Even if you just want Pizza, it is amazing. Very kid friendly as well.

This being our second visit to Valentino's we were expecting the same quality in food and service as our first visit. Valentino's delivered another very good meal. Service was prompt and unobtrusive. While on our first visit the order consisted of the eggplant parmesan and cheese tortellini with chicken. The second visit was calamari (as a meal) with marinara sauce and alfredo carbonara. Once again the meal was hot, seasoned well, proportions abundant and very delicious.
Reservations are a must on the weekends. The venue is rather small but tables appeared to be turned quickly. Clearly Valentio's is throwing down the gauntlet and challenging the other Italian restaurants in Rowlett. Bravo Valentino's! We'll be back.

Best Itialian Food. Clean, Constistant, Friendly, Fresh.
They make the dishes as you order them, so it does take a few minutes to get your food...even the soup is made by the Bowl, not just dished out of a pot. So if there is a wait for your food, its because they are making every dish for you, the way you order it. Dont see it on the menu?, no problem usually, just ask, and they will usually be able to accomidate.
Its owned and operated by 3 brothers (2 of whom were born in Italy), who are always there, cooking, serving guests, seating and chatting wtih guests. They are Very personable and friendly. Come in once and they will remember you the next time and welcome you back as 'friend'. Its a small storefront, so there has been a wait to be seated sometimes, lately, but thats because the secret is getting out. Great food, reasonable prices, great customer service...you cant beat it.
Be warned,...the bread and Garlic Oil Dip is totally addictive...
