Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

AMAZING 🥰🥰🥰 Children are treated as special mini adults and the adults are treated as special guests … the only thing better than the service is the food ♥️🥰

Fabulous restaurant, well situated and wonderfully hospitable staff- so professionally friendly and they go the extra mile. A busy Saturday evening but we were well looked after. The restaurant is cosy but not cramped. Nice wine selection and half carafe options too. An extensive traditional...menu - spoilt for choice. Bruschetta, seafood and salmon pastas all highly recommended. Can’t wait to return !More

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 If you're after authentic Italian flavours and a cosy family atmosphere, Valentino's is the place to be! From the moment you walk in, you're greeted with smiles and the delicious aroma of homemade dishes. Their pizzas are amazing – crispy crust and generous toppings....And don't even get me started on their pasta dishes! Valentino's is a total gem!More

Squid rings were the smallest I’ve seen. Pizzas couldn’t be thinner. Bolognaise - two of had it in the group, one portion was small and one was a third of the size of the small one.

A gem in the heart of Ripon. We stayed here for two nights. The room was immaculate and so clean. Breakfast was very Italian. No bacon or sausage in sight! Had dinner on Saturday evening which was fab. All of the staff were so friendly...and we just loved the place. Thank you. We’ll be backMore

We visited when staying with family nearby, so we were a large table of 8 plus high chair. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially with the demands/grumps of over-tired children! Everyone enjoyed their meals and all plates were cleared, the toddler enjoying sampling...from everyone's plate! The menu was varied and quite large. I particularly enjoyed my olive and bread starter and the orange sorbet dessert, served in a frozen orange! This is our second visit within 6 months, and no doubt we will be back again soon!More
