I had heard great things about this place so we went for dinner last Saturday. Wait staff was very nice and very attentive.....almost too attentive. The place is very small and it was very warm in there. The food was good. I will go back and try something different. I had one of the chicken specials (4 sauces) and was not crazy about it. My husband who has been there several times and gets the pizza he loves it. All in all a good experience and will try it again.

Great place for a good and fairly inexpensive Italian meal. The restaurant has great atmosphere and decor down to the Italian owners and staff. The place is a bit on the small side, but the wait is minimal at best. What they lack in space, they make up in a generous meal portions and dinner rolls!

I visited Valentino's for the third time last night while on date night with my DH. The food has been consistently delicious each time. I have been there previously on a weekday during lunch as part of a girl's day out, and also for dinner as part of a girl's night out on a Friday night. It is family run and you can tell they care about making sure you are happy. They have a vast menu and it is all authentic Italian fare. Each time I have ordered something different and it has always been fabulous. The only downside, as others have mentioned is the location. It sits at the end of a strip center with only one entrance in and out from the parkway. Parking is sometimes hard to come by as there has NEVER been a time that I have been there that every table wasn't occupied. Having said that...there are always people waiting to be seated. To their credit, they handle the rotation of tables with ease and apologize for the wait with a genuine smile. Simply put...they are so great but in such a confined location that they really need to relocate to a bigger place! The décor is lively and fun. The staff are HOPPING!!!! They move through the intricate maze of seated guests with a finesse that is actually entertaining to watch. It's worth a visit if you are tired of the big chain Italian restaurants.
