    We have not enjoyed dining out lately, even at upscale restaurants, because of the noise levels. We have found it difficult to hold conversations which makes dining less than pleasant . At Valentino’s, we had not only superb food and attentive service, but combined with the ambience and lack of noise we had one of the best dining experiences we have had in years! It was, in a word, fabulous from the initial greeting to the final door being opened for our departure. Valentino’s is my new go to restaurant !

    I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions or just a night out with good friends and family. The food is of top quality and delicious. Meanwhile, the portions were appropriate for the price. You won't go wrong with Valentino's. There is no dress code but there should be because of their standard of excellence. Thanks Valentino.

    This was a customer dinner and we had to stay within our company policy on dinner expense. Grant, our server was amazing in that he kept up with the running tab on the wine, keeping us well within our budget. He was welcoming and it was clear that he loves what he does! The food was wonderful and the ambience made us all feel like we were at home. I will be back in Nashville in a few months, and will definitely visit Valentino's again!!!

    The outdoor seating area looks like it would be great during cooler weather. The food is excellent, the servers are very experienced and attentive, the atmosphere is relaxing and can get a bit loud depending on other customers. A very nice, small bar that would be great to meet for drinks. My 3rd trip in about 6 weeks.

    Ate here for our anniversary on a Sunday night, pretty early, around 5pm. We had a small room to ourselves which is ideal for introverts like us! Another party was coming in right as we were leaving. Loved the ambience and the service was great. This is the second time we have eaten at Valentino's, first time at the new location and the food has been some of the best I've ever eaten both times! The steak was cooked perfectly and we got an order of a special appetizer they had, the arancini, and it was so tasty! Highly recommend for a special night out.

    Service was spot on. Food was great. The only thing I’ve got is the tomato base on the Osso Bucco was to much. Cut back a little bit to where the risotto shines with the meat you will be spot on. Thank you for a great time!

    The food, atmosphere, and service were top notch. We ordered two specials and two menu items. They were all excellent with reasonable portions (e.g., modest appetizers and deserts, large entrées). The immediate neighborhood is a little seedy, but it is beautiful inside and parking close was not a problem (valet available).
