Poor service, worse food. The service is incredibly slow, no awareness of the tables. The tagellitelli with beef tasted like a tin of “beans and sausages” sauce dumped over some rehidrated pasta and poor quality meat. The only reason I ate any of it was...More

Description
Located on the first floor at Mermaid Quay, Cardiff Bay, Signor Valentino undoubtedly occupies the best position on the waterfront. With views to die for over Cardiff Bay and stretching to Penarth Marina, there balcony of Signor Valentino is a truly remarkable setting for al fresco dining. It feels like you could be anywhere in the Mediterranean. When launched, Signor Valentino became an overnight success in 2001 due to its strong ethos in excellent food and service was a Mecca for dining enthusiasts. Due to the great succes of Signor Valentino Mermaid Quay, we were excited to launch our second locaton in St David's shopping centre providing hungry shoppers with a hot spot for great food, stylish surroundings and great service. The emphasis in both locations is on the delcious Italian food we produce, sourcing the highest quality, locally sourced produce, cooked by our highly qualified team of chefs, the open kitchen in both locations gives our customers the opportunity to watch our teams hard at work producing dishes for your enjoyment. We are very proud of what we have created and we hope you enjoy dining with us as much as we enjoy welcoming you.
