"Valentino has staying power! It has been around since the 1970's and keeps upgrading
ambiance and menu, plus an incredible wine list. The Selvaggio brothers are doing
a great job."

"Great old school Italian dining experience. They treat you like an old friend, very welcoming . The food was exceptional along with Paul our waiter who gave us absolutely impeccable service and was very knowledgeable with the extensive wine list & menu.
My compliments to the chef and all the wait staff who remembered our names upon leaving and came out to wish us well.

"Basic decent high end restaurant. Food above average. Nice specials. Impressive wine list size, BUT every bottle I requested was out of stock so while it's great to have a huge list, if it isn't in the cellar, it's just an intellectual exercise. Also, no help offered either by waiter or Sommelier (don't even know if one was present). That was disappointing."

"The "Artisanal SPAGHETTI Al Cipollotto-- With Pancetta And Blue Buffalo Cheese" was outstanding. Would come here again for the same dish."

"I remember going to Valentino's more than 30 years ago, and I have very pleasant memories, so when I wanted to celebrate our wedding anniversary in a romantic place, and avoid those noisy, high-energy restaurants where you have to shout to be understood, I thought of Valentino's. Booked it on Open Table, which also gave me the option of getting some roses delivered to the table. Worth the price of admission!
I also requested a quiet table, and we were seated at a corner table, which was perfect. All the staff were personable and professional--no sullen teenagers. My wife ordered veal picatta, which she thoroughly enjoyed. I had my favorite: osso buco, which was also excellent. It was surrounded by a cheesy risotto--delicious. I almost never order that dish because it's so seldom done properly. It came with a small fork to scoop out the marrow--the best part--which was ineffective, so I simply used to stem of the fork instead. We finished the meal with a very creamy and tasty ice cream, which was decorated with a candle and "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate. The wine list is one of the best, and there was a good selection of wines by the glass. I ordered two different Italian Reds, both of which were excellent. This is not an everyday restaurant, unless you have lots of money, but for a special occasion, it's hard to beat.

"Valentinos is an old school Italian restaurant. The food is terrific and the service is top drawer. The ambiance is perfect. You can actually hear what others at the table are saying....something that is hard to find in many other restaurants these days. We had a great time. Everyone loved their order."
