If you love food, wine, great service and warm hospitality you share something in common with the owner of Valentina's and you are going to love his restaurant! Every aspect of the dining experience reflects his rich culinary family history and his more than 40 years of experience in the restaurant business. One glance at the wine list, with its eclectic mix of lesser known wines that are interesting, imminently drinkable, delicious and affordable and a foodie will recognize all the signs of a restaurant that is founded in a love of food and pleasurable dining over profits. Most of the wines are priced under $40 but don't mistake that for a lack of quality (you will also find some more recognizable higher priced wines if you are so inclined).
After perusing the wine list, I couldn't wait to open the menu and I wasn't disappointed. I won't go into the specifics of the wine list or the menu because according to Michael it is every changing with the seasons and his whims. But the menu offers innovative small plates and entrees made mostly from fresh local products and based in his Italian heritage and the chef clearly knows how to cook. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed every flavorful dish we ate. We were there for our 31st wedding anniversary and Michael started our evening off with a delightful glass of sparkling wine on the house. Just one of the many small gestures that make eating at Valentina special.
If you are in the Camden area (or even if you are not) head to Valentina's and you won't regret it. We cannot wait to go back!
