We’ve eaten here a few times under different operators and always enjoyed the meals we’ve had. Our server was very helpful and attentive.

I would always recommend Valentino’s for a good meal and a fine evening.

We ordered 2 lunch items. Quality was good and was tasty... One of the item was incredibly small quantity while other one was ok. So I may not go back there. I would recommend this place to someone with lil appetite

Ambience ok, noise level quiet, good. Appetizer tomato & mozzerella was excessively salty.
Chicken parm entree was chewy and tasted like defrosted frozen. Filet mignon was good, tasty but overdone (asked for slight pink, got dead dark). Bread pudding sounded real interesting, but like so many restaurants, it was frozen, so after being micro waved, had hot and cold spot interior. Wine list was un inspiring and slightly on high $ side. They took chicken parm off tab, but stll amounted to $180 before tip.
Overall probably would not recommend to others ...
Pricey, meh menu and sub par food prep.

The service was great.
The wine list is good.
The ambiance was wonderful
I'm giving this three stars because, unfortunately the chicken parm dish I got was not particularly good. It was really dense and hard to cut, which happens if chicken is micro-waved.
So I'm thinking this dish is not freshly prepared and I would never order it again.

It's really unfortunate that it brought down the rest of the meal. The meatballs were great and my wife's pasta was good too. But the memory of this really hard dry chicken is sticking with me. As of right now I could not recommend this as a place to eat. I honestly wish i could.

First time there, very good place. Everyone super friendly, food excellent. Wine a little pricey, but I was OK with that. After dinner we went to the bar area and another fine experience. Will go back again.

Food was very good. Only complaint was my steak was more medium than medium rare, and boy was it salty ! Next time I go back I will ask to be careful with the salt.

Mr. Gregg Aarons please don't publish false information. You received a undercooked Filet Mignon that we corrected and comp for you because of the inconvenience! We DO NOT service any frozen products at 103 PRIME! Thank you for dining with us. - Jerry Colella

Me and my boyfriend ordered the porterhouse steak and it was extremely delicious along with the Mac & cheese. Our server was extremely well spoken and delightful to speak too. I believe his name was Marc but I might be wrong. Regardless I enjoyed my dining experience.

WE found the food to be very good with one exception. The pasta dish came out cool and there was no meat in the Bolognese sauce it was a dish of flat noodles with a pink sauce .
We had the meatball as appetizers they were the best I have had anywhere and OI had the pork chop and it was certainly well worth it. Tender cook to perfection and tasty.
We thought that with the exception of the pasta dish it was very good.

For our monthly date nights, my wife and I ALWAYS dine at Valentino's. The decor is "retro" italian, with wall photos of celebrities from the 60's and 70's. Ambiance is intimate and personable. And the menu is amazing. Never had a bad experience. We now know the owner by name, who always greets us at the door when we arrive. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. A true gem and rare find.

I have been here several times for work related dinners. My wife wanted to try it out. While the food - Filet Mignon's and assorted starter/sides were outstanding, the table we had was awful. I took my wife there to celebrate Mother's Day and the table for two was long and narrow and placed in the path the waiters would take. When a waiter would serve the table next to us, I thought his rear end was going to end up on my plate if not my face. Each time a server would speed by, I thought they would crash into my table. The noise level was high - and made worse based on proximity to other tables around us. I felt that I could reach over without any effort and take what ever I wanted off the table to my right and left. I left a message at the restaurant and since then - they called to apologize and offered to send me a gift certificate to make up for the table problem and insure we have a table of our choice - we will see if that happens and follow up this review
