Pappardelle noodles could have been cooked more. It was less than al dente. Also the ricotta cheese on top of the dish was cold so that through us off. The cozze and pollo was delicious though. The service and ambiance was superb. I would come back.

Food has been consistent and service is great. We Sat at the bar and had the ravioli special and the ravioli on the menu, which were both very good. We always bring our wine because our wine cellar is much better than any restaurant, but they would not allow us to bring our wine. Always happy to pay a corkage fee but We were very disappointed! Not going back anytime soon.

Good food and service. A bit noisy as we were sitting outside and there was a speaker right above us...when we requested to have the music turned down a bit, it took a while and then it went back up again. Made it difficult to hear each other for conversation.

The service was great and the staff is very friendly. The menu is on the smaller side but the food overall is good. The glass of wine I ordered was delish! Great for a weeknight dinner.

We are regulars and first time back since regular seating. Sat outside on picnic table. That okay and service okay. Mussels good . Caesar salad good and also pasta but disappointed by the Fritto misto butembarresed to say the breading and frying made for bad taste. Nice to have complementary birthday dessert but other than the mussels which we frequently carry out it was just okay evening meal.

The food and service are up to Valenza quality and flavor. Our reservation seating had us way back in the private party room so it was not the Valenza ambience we normally get in the inside main dining tables for 2 or on the the outdoor patio courtyard.

Sat on the patio, which was perfect for social distancing. Hand sanitizer on the table. Staff had on masks. Saltimbocca was delicious, as was the pasta. Such a treat to eat delicious food and feel safe during the pandemic.

We were given a table right next to the open sidewalk and when we asked for a table without so much traffic we were given a table right where the waitstaff walked to pick up the meals, plus 2 tables beyond us and people using the restroom meant several times a minute people were walking right next to the table. We had assumed all would be an enjoyable meal to celebrate my birthday but unfortunately not.

We attended the lasagna special night. Unfortunately, the lasagna did not have much of a taste/flavor.
It did not meet many of our earlier good choices on the menu.
Salad, wine and service were good.

The saltimbocca was overcooked and tough, and a pasta dish was very heavy, with very large and thick noodles. The waiter was clearly trying to turn our table quickly, to the point that he brought the bill before it was requested.

On Wednesday evenings from 7 to probably 9, Joe Gransden and a keyboardist play. They are absolutely superb and we cannot believe that Valenza doesn't advertise this on their website. People pay gladly to see him perform and this is free!

My wife and I love going to Valenza! We’ll use any excuse to go out to eat. I feel as if there’s a group of grandmothers in the kitchen cooking.
