Very good italian food, perfectly cooked and presented, and excellent service. However, not sufficiently novel or creative for the rather high prices. Too expensive, in our view.

We were staying at the Residence Inn and this restaurant is just a few steps away so we decided to give it a try. Beautiful romantic interior. Amazing service and the food was also very good. We also thought the prices were quite good for this kind of fine dining. My husband comes to town often and is plannning on... More

As luck would have it, we stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant and had the best time. The restaurant is in a heritage house....built in the 1800's. It is warm, inviting, cozy....and the food is superb. The lasagna and short rib were both amazing. The staff was attentive and professional and the service was perfect. After dinner we went... More

If you've checked the very large number of reviews I have contributed on Tripadvisor you'll realize that this one is unusual in it's comprehensive report. That's because this little restaurant warrants more than a cursory review. For a truly memorable (in a good way) dining experience, all aspects of the experience must be excellent; ambience, flavor, service, location, price of... More

We had a large family group and called ahead to make sure this wouldn't be a problem. We were assured that it would be fine and that they would have extra staff with us in mind. The service was atrocious. There was three waiters available who apparently thought they were only allowed to wait on us one at a time.... More

What a treat! I felt like I was in NYC with the seasoned interior and the bar upstairs. Our waiter Andre' was wonderful. He really knew the menu and understands the fine points of great service. Never too far away but never hovered. We had Ceasar Salad made the way it should be made, at table side. The lettuce was... More

Our Labor Day evening began as a big disappointment. My wife and I had plans for a nice dinner at a romantic restaurant. As we approached our chosen restaurant we noticed they were closed for the holiday. As our evening seemed to be unraveling before us, my wife remembered a quaint little Italian restaurant around the corner... Valentino's Ristorante. Our... More

Ask to sit downstairs of the charming house converted to a restaurant. The service was great they were awesome with the kids. Every bite I took was great and meal was well timed out. I would go back any chance I get.
