The food here is amazing so I will go back. The service isn't the greatest though. They will charge you extra for every little thing and act a bit snotty.

We skipped an Italian restaurant down the road since it appeared to be geared more for families and found this gem. We had to wait a few minutes but it wasn't long. The hostess and our server were both very nice. It was obvious throughout that the servers knew many of the guests and that they are used to taking... More

We've been there multiple times with friends. EVERYONE said it was the best ever. Two brothers and a sister from Italy return there for new recipes each year. Authentic food. But the best part ... huge portions. Again, EVERYONE left with to-go meals. And the entrees are below $20, typically $12-14. No reservations, so you better get there early. No... More

Good food, some original dishes named after our area. Rolls are incredible!! Prices are reasonable. Staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant is smaller than it looks and slightly cramped. When the guest behind you moves their chair back from their table - you get hit.

They have moved to a beautiful new building in front of the Walmart on Lakeview Parkway. Not only is the building bigger and beautiful, they have more seating and parking. The food is excellent as usual and the service is just as welcoming and friendly as ever. Bring your friends, family and business associates, they will all love it!

Feb 23. 2017....My Husband chose Valentino's for his Birthday dinner. We were first time visitors... The sauce for the Stuffed Mushrooms we ordered was very good... The stuffing in the mushroom was VERY bitter and reminded me of a flavor from my morning sickness days... We asked 3 different employees what was in the stuffing and they said "crab, parm... More

Long time fans so we have tried half the menu but our go to is the best Cannoli with rich marina that you can find anywhere. Oh - and any dish that includes the mushroom ravioli! Family run and Val seems to always be there. And go once and he will remember you forever. New location is so much better... More
