Caffe Valentino - Philadelphia

Beautiful Italian BYOB, and a staple for the last 7 years in the Pennsport area of South Philadelphia. Traditional cuisine and fresh pasta dishes are what make this little known gem so special. Formerly part of a trio of restaurants, Caffe Valentino now stands and shines alone after its new expansion: Caffe Valentino seats 45 downstairs in its rustic first floor dining room and a maximum of 100 guests in its elegant second floor dining room with full, open kitchen. If you haven't dined at Caffe Valentino before, it is a definite "must try" for your next dinner out or family gathering. Great for large groups as well as romantic dining.

"Our reservation was for 6:30 and we were seated right away. We ordered appetizers but they brought our salads first and then it took another hour before we got our appetizers. When we finally got our dinners the food was tasteless and definitely not worth waiting 2 hours for."

"Had the strangest waiter ever. Kept coming back over telling jokes that made no sense. He practically never left our table. I asked for their antipasto that I have had at parties before and they were happy to make it even though it was off the menu. Only problem was, I have no idea what they made me! They sent over a huge plate of marinated cabbage and chick peas with 2 grilled veggies. I wish they never offered it if they didn't have the right ingredients. I have been there for parties and had a way better experience."

"Very bright second floor dining room , banquet hall for Valentines day . the antipasto was good not great ,second course of Gnocchi Scampi : Gnocchi and shrimp in thick pink vodka sauce , very filling, not much on taste , third course : Mini lamb chops, I mean Mini , 3 , no sauce or gravy over Cool Mashed potatoes and cool overdone broccoli . 4th course Tira Misu and mini cannolli
overall very unimpressive : wish i had sat downstairs where the lights were dimmer , there were more people who i sensed were getting the authentic Italian food we did not get .

"We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. It's usually crowded on the weekends but it adds to the overall atmosphere. Noisy but lovely. It is worth your time and effort to dine there. I don' think you will regret it and I feel reasonably certain that you will become a regular."

"The food at Cafe Valentino is as good as any Italian restaurant in Philadelphia. The ambiance is definitely "South Philly" which I love. My review would have been "outstanding" but for the bread. Bread is usually the first thing that you taste prior to any appetizers or main courses. The bread we had was, in my opinion, chewy and very well could have been frozen and then heated prior to serving. There are so many excellent bakeries in the area that Cafe Valentino could start your dining experience with top of the line bread. We will most certainly return."

"Caffe Valentino came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. The food was great and the service was very good. We had a group of 8 which they accommodated easily. The noise level was moderate. I was grateful that they take reservations since many BYOBs do not."
