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.

We went to Valentino’s as a table of 5 for my son’s 10th birthday. We had such a lovely meal, amazing choice (you must try the flambé prawns cooked at your table), the staff were amazing and the maitre d was beyond welcoming!!!!! Really a...first class dining experience!!!! Many places you go to eat nowadays you are treated like a number but at Valentino’s you are treated like family!!!More

Oh dear, such nice staff and good service but the food was really poor. Maybe we chose badly but it all reminded me of a three star hotel in the 70s. We had the £22 set three course menu, good price for three courses. We...both started with a mushroom and asparagus fusilli dish. Sauce honestly tasted like a cheap dried packet mix, almost pot noodle like. The Parmesan was absolutely tasteless and I quite like the stuff you get in a cardboard tube. For mains I had a pork dish served in exactly the same mushroom sauce the pasta had been served in and husband had a spinach roulade. Pork overcooked and dry, roulade bland and almost unpleasant. Nice veggies and salad. Finally we both had ‘homemade’ creme brûlée, it was ok, but I’m almost sure it was a packet mix. Sorry. Loved the doilies though.More

Easy to book, lovely decoration and atmosphere. Very welcoming restaurant. Good choice on the menu, which also caters for a family member who is gluten free. I’m a bit fussy with what I like and this restaurant always makes me a tailor-made meal which I...absolutely love. The food is so tasty - our family love it here, especially for a special occasion.More

The food is amazing, great range with large portions, real value for money. Reminded me of being back in Italy! The service was incredible, everyone was friendly but not overly so. Felt so comfortable. The dessert was incredible! Decor is cosy and homely. If you're...expecting a minimalist chain-style restaurant this is not the place for you.More
