Our second lunchtime visit turned out just as good as the first. We have to try different dishes each time and today the Linguine and King Prawns, Ravioli Burrata & Spinach with polenta and salad sides were as expected; tasty, freshly prepared and authentic. I didn't realise the amaretti biscuit came in crumb form on the Torroncino Affogato but when... More

Had a lovely lunch here today. Service was good, friendly staff and great relaxed atmosphere. As the weather was so good the big window doors were open so, although we were inside we were able to appreciate the warm weather and fresh air. We shared starters and all had different mains. Everything was delicious, hot and well cooked. We didn't... More

Lovely simple menu with delicious Italian fare. We had some calamari, pizzas, homemade ravioli and tagliatelle carbonara. All were well cooked, well presented and every plate cleared. Service was friendly and efficient. We had some very drinkable wine, some good italian beers and Aperol Spritz bringing back happy memories of Italian holidays. The restaurant was very quiet on a Monday... More

Went with my husband for lunch, we were impressed by the friendliness of the staff and Marco's welcoming approach. The menu is not very big but everything we ate was freshly cooked and so tasty!!! After lunch we stopped in the shop and bought some lovely food to take home. Amazing!!!

Had a great evening celebrating a family birthday, the whole team looked after us extremely well. The food and atmosphere was brilliant and just what you expect in a family Italian! The best Italian in Sevenoaks by far.

Food delicious, although usually quite salty. I ordered the Capella Romana - a baked tagliatelle dish with mini meatballs wrapped in speck and baked, and discovered that they now only put 3 mini meatballs in the dish. I passed this feedback to the manager, and they said that they have been told to do this by the owners!! and that... More

Description
Valentina���s Sevenoaks restaurant is the newest addition to this charming family of Italian deli restaurants. As well as a hugely well stocked delicatessen and a range of over 200 wines, the Sevenoaks branch also has a bustling 50 cover restaurant. The family run group has been satisfying southwest London locals from its Putney branch since 1991 and customers south of the M25 are already doling out rave reviews for the Sevenoaks branch. Enticing window displays, capable and friendly service as well as a classic Italian menu, reasonable prices and authentic Italian coffee all garner praise. Dishes like Capella Romana (tagliatelle with Nonna���s meatballs, wrapped in speck and oven baked, served with a bolognese sauce) utilise tried and tested family recipes and quality produce. Wherever possible, ingredients here change with the seasons, and egg pasta is made fresh on the premises daily. Slightly less Italian but no less beloved, breakfasts of scrambled eggs and smoked salmon are also very popular.
