    My wife and I went on a Friday night for our anniversary, It was surprisingly not overcrowded like alot of restaurants. You are seated in small individual rooms with 4 tables or less in them and it makes for a more private feeling experience. The wine, food, and service was excellent and they even surprised us with a dessert knowing it was our anniversary. It was our first time visiting Valentino's and we can't wait to go back!

    Awesome as usual. What an absolute joy to go to a restaurant that has great service with employees that enjoy their job & you can tell it by how pleasant & attentive they are to their patrons. The food - what can I say - it never disappoints, except I’m too full to have dessert. 😉 Thanks again all for an awesome experience.

    As usual, our visit to Valentino's was outstanding from start to finish. Their food is always excellent, and their friendly and attentive staff is consistent in providing a top-notch dining experience. We love this local gem of a restaurant and will continue to dine there as often as we are able. P.S. My wife ordered one of their special entrées for that evening - a salmon filet with crabmeat topping in a lemon-butter-caper sauce with roasted root vegetables. It was the best salmon filet that either of us have ever tasted anywhere, and I really hope that they will add this entrée to their standard dinner menu at some point.

    This has become our favorite date night spot. The cioppino was fantastic, this time I got the chicken parm and it’s definitely some of the best I had. My husband usually gets the lobster ravioli but got the sausage and peppers pasta and was just as good. Our server was attentive and kind. We’ll be back soon!

    Not super difficult too find, although it did lack for parking. Ambiance was outstanding, food was good, and was quiet. The only negative mark was that we ordered a $44 dollar bottle of wine, and then google searched the brand and found out you can get the exact same thing at Walmart for 12 dollars a bottle. Overall, good place to ear, but DO NOT go there to drink. They will intentionally overcharge you.

    We had the Caesar Salad for two (prepared at your table), Lobster Ravioli, and flourless chocolate cake with ice cream. We have never had better. Valentine’s treat. Some noise from diners nearby but still decently private. An overall stellar evening!!!

    Hands down, this is the best Italian restaurant we have been to in Nashville (we have been living here for over 2 years). Everything is fresh, authentic, and delicious! The service is so friendly and attentive; the atmosphere is warm and inviting. For this occasion, we were celebrating my mother's birthday and the staff provided a fabulous tiramisu, along with a wonderful rendition of Happy Birthday. This has become our favorite restaurant - it never disappoints.

    Classic old school Italian restaurant. Excellent service, great bar tender making strong drinks. Table side Caesar salad a must! Arancini was delicious. Lobster ravioli was very cream and nice. An awesome veal parmigiana! Gigi Toscano was great with spicy sauce. Banana’s foster another classic done table side, another show. Reasonable wine selection. Complimentary valet parking. Who knew… dinner and a show! We will definitely go back. It is expensive but definitely worth it. Nothing disappointed. Large portions, packed lots to go.

    First time visiting for my birthday and was very pleased with service and food. To start the valet guy was very friendly and patient. When we sat down we noticed the elegant ambiance. Our waiter was very attentive and didn't rush us. I ordered the seafood risotto and it was one of the best meals I've had. If you're looking for a cozy romantic date night spot this restaurant will not disappoint. We enjoyed the whole experience that we plan on returning next month for husband's birthday

    The food was amazing. The service was outstanding. Our server noticed that it was my birthday the day before, so after bagging up our leftovers, he came with a complimentary tiramisu with a birthday candle in it for me. The vibe there was so great to have an intimate dinner with my fiancé. 10/10 recommend dining here.

    I go here every year on my birthday because the place is a class act. Professional waiters who want you to take your time and enjoy some of the best Italian food in Nashville. They know their menus inside and out and they never rush you into the food and out of the building. Treat yourself and your friends someday soon.
