Welcome to Valle Cucina, Delaware's best kept secret for thirty years! Our name suggests Italian, and it is the best around, but we are also known for our seven time "Best of Delaware" award winning 100% jumbo lump crab cakes, seafood dishes and the area's most amazing dry aged steaks. Valle also showcases a 100+ bottle wine list.


Come as your are or formal, everyone feels at home. We take pride in our friendly service.



Located in the Pike Creek Shopping Center, off Limestone Rd. Valle, opened in 1981 as a pizzeria and has become a must try. We are inviting you to experience what many have called their best dining experience.

Went for my birthday dinner. It was not actually the restaurant I had originally planned to go to, but my first choice was closing early for a private event.
We had not been to this restaurant for 20 years, only because I never think of it, we had been there when we first moved to this area and really liked it but just never made it back. We were really happy that I decided to go here today, the food was outstanding, service was awesome and the desserts were fabulous. We WILL be back again, and I am not waiting for another 20 years to do so.

We have dined here many times and have never been disappointed. Even during the pandemic, with the main area closed, the take out service was very good.

Table seating was loud by the bar so we asked to move and were given a very good booth at the back of the restaurant. Service was excellent. Rosotto was very good but not hot. We didn't complain. We will be back again.

Felt very rushed through our meal. We wanted to sit and enjoy the meal but our waitress kept rushing over to our table then rushing away. She then abruptly brought the check over. The she made us feel like we had to sit down, eat out food, and get out.

The food at this restaurant is exceptional. The variety of menu options is great.
The prices however are really really high, more of what you might find in a big city.
But we keep going back since it’s so tasty

We are new to the area and found Valle Cucina on Open Table. The service was excellent as were the cocktails and food. There is something for everyone on the menu. The adults enjoyed delicious steaks and crab cakes while the teens had pasta. We are planning to return soon.

The food was very good. The service was a bit slow, it was Mother's Day, so it just may have been because they were busy. I would definitely recommend Valle's.
