Total surprise. Been driving by for years. This is the first time I came in, thanks to my friend Jenny. UNBELIEVEABLE tasty and delicious. Great service and just about the right wait time.

I've been in the industry for 10 years and this is some of the worst staff I've seen. My family and I sat on the patio last summer and waited almost 1.5 hours for our meal. There was no communication and we even had to flag down a waiter for drinks. My dad and grandfather are big drinkers and as... More

Went on a Friday evening for pizzas and beer. Pizzas were very good (we had the arugula, traditional and a choose your own toppings) but the beer, which is made in house, was the highlight of the meal! I had the Brown Ale, my husband had the other, lighter offering (they had two distinctly different made-in-house beers available) and we... More

There were 3 other tables of 2 people in the restaurant. We ordered right away. We sat for almost an hour for 2 plates of pasta. The waitress... More

Took my family here for a mid week treat. The restaurant is clean and acoustically good which is important to me. Garlic bread and bruschetta to start which was really good. However, the main course took too long to come and was not hot enough which was a shame because the restaurant was basically empty by that time. Service was... More

Valentino's was recommended by hotel front desk as one of the best Italian restaurant in town. I made reservations for seven of us for dinner. When we got there no one was there to receive us. I grabbed one of the server and told him about our reservations. We were reluctantly told to go and sit on a table, which... More

Valentino's was in its hey day during the 1980's and even the 1990's. I guess the owners are not interested in who they hire (I assume they are hiring family and/or friends) because you really don't get that warm welcome when you enter this restaurant. The food portions have also decreased in size yet have kept the same price. And... More

Valentino's location is off the beaten track. It deserves lots of business. We ate there on a cloudy evening. The restaurant has recently been redone inside and out and looks quite smart.Our server, Kayleigh, was superb. She was attentive but not obtrusive. She had a pleasant, friendly personality. We ordered pizzas and a chef's salad each. The ingredients in the... More
