We decided to eat at this wonderful restaurant after going to see The Godfather at the movie theater ......our all Italian day!! We were greeted by Traci at the door explaining where we had been prior to our arrival there and all of us trying to speak with Italian accents! Traci turned out to be our waitress and we couldn't...

Great food with great service in a delightful atmosphere. It was a nice to have the owner come to our table and chat after dinner. We got talking about Italy and how much we enjoyed lemon cello when there. The owner advised that he just returned from Italy and brought back some special lemon cello. Of course we had to... More

We had a party of 8 ranging from 13 to 78 ... the food was delicious! White pizza, chicken piccata, veal parm, filet mignon ... all excellent. Tracy was a phenominal waitress ...wonderful personality and very attentive. Highly recommended.

My husband and I had dinner at Valentino's on Valentine's Day, appropriate, right? From the outside the restaurant appears small, situated in a strip plaza, but it is surprisingly large and had a pleasant atmosphere. They had live, soft music from a duo which added to the atmosphere. The meal included a salad, which was fresh, but nothing out of... More

Good Italian food at a reasonable price, good coffee too! Had a nice salad and Italian dish. We had a little confusion with the bill but everything was resolved. I would eat here again!

Since we have lived in this area for less than a year we are always looking for someplace new to try. We were so happy we decided to try Valentino's. We ordered baked ziti and linguine with red clam...both were excellent. The soup (vegetable with sausage...similar to a minestrone) was really quite good. Our server, Traci was delightful...personable, funny and... More

We stopped by this cozy spot for a late lunch and were warmly greeted by the hostess and seated immediately. The early bird specials were offered to us. I had chicken Parmesan and my husband had veal Parmesan - both were delicious as were the soups that were included in our meal. The wait staff was very attentive and pleasant.... More

Went to lunch today with a large group of women from Oceanside Village. Excellent food and excellent service for only $10.99! Can't beat it!

We set out originally to eat at the Valentino's II where we usually go down the road, only to find they were closed. We had been told that the original was better before, so we decided we'd try it out and see. It's in an old shopping plaza which was hard to find parking and some of the neighboring shops... More

Hubby and I had dinner here. He chose lasagna, which was the right portion with a very good marina sauce. I had the Manicotti,? which was two tubes. The waitress was attentive and quite friendly. A salad came with our meal, which surprised us. A performer sang while we dined.
