This is an authentic Italian restaurant. If your idea of good Italian food is Fazolis or Olive Garden, this is not your place. The food, service, and atmosphere have always been excellent. Andre, our favorite waiter, goes out of his way

Absolutly spectacular service, selection, food. We were personally met by the owner, served by two waiters, and had all of our needs met.

For anyone visiting Valentino's, I strongly recommend the lasagna. The rich sauce was drizzled over a large variety of steamed vegetables and meats. The prices were somewhat high, however.

Valentino's has great food and an attentive staff. What more can one ask for? So far, I have tried the veal saltimboca and the veal piccata. Both were outstanding. My husband is a fan of the tiramisu, and I enjoy the chocolate mousse cup.

If you love Italian food and romance this is the place to go. The food was wonderful and the price wasn't bad. We would suggest the bananas foster for dessert. This is a great place to start a wonderful evening.
