I met a friend for lunch here on Thursday, March 30th, 2017. Our reservation was for 12:30pm and the restaurant was very empty upon our arrival for being lunch time. We were seated immediately, which is always a good thing in my book. The basket of bread that they provide was very good! There were a few different choices, all... More

Dined at their bar, all wine in bottles 1/2 off, not so with wines by the glass....... Duh, Bar food Meat Balls, Pork Belly and Pizza was good when paired with a nice bottle of Barolo at 1/2 off. Nice bartenders that are not so attentive..........

Ordered this with a Vallone salad for lunch - divine. I love Branzino and this was the best I've had in a long time. Bread is delicious.

Great service, very good food, and fine wines! Friendly bar! At the bar, ask for Maggie, she will pour on hell of a drink and offer you a slice or two of the best pizza in town!

I had the Vallone salad and Chicken Parmigiana. The salad was crisp and flavorful. The chicken was well prepared, not too rich and nice flavor. The side... More

I have been here many times and I think it gets better every time I have dinner there. It is awesome and I cannot imagine anyone not enjoying this wonderful Vallone Restaurant.
