    We had a delicious meal with a starter flatbread appetizer. We've tried two different flatbreads and they were outstanding. Our main entrees were delicious as well. It was a bit of drive from our residence in the US, but worth the trip.

    We went here on the recommendation of a waitress from the winery Colaneri. It was amazing. Authentic Italian food. The flavors were perfection. Eggplant rollatini was the perfect balance of ricotta and Romano cheese with a great marinara sauce. The veal was so tender you could cut it with a fork. Seafood was fresh and squid ink pasta was made to perfection. There was a Great selection of menu items. Quaint and cozy atmosphere and The service was impeccable. This is a must try!

    It was our first time there. Focaccia bread was light and delicious. The mushroom app stuffed with risotto and lobster was tasty. Portion could have been larger as well as more lobster and less risotto My husband had the gnocchi with Gorgonzola cream sauce. The pasta was light and tender, sauce was great. He felt the portion was small. I had the veal in lemon sauce with risotto and vegetables. Very tender. Our desserts were good and our server Pam was lovely. Good and friendly service. Yes I would recommend this restaurant.

    We forget about the Valley sometimes. Our meal and service was great. Proper pace as we worked our way through appetizers, drinks, mains and after dinner espresso. We will make a point of getting back a few times this summer to chill and enjoy other items off a great menu

    The food here will always be fantastic. We have been coming here for years and it never fails. However, on our most recent visit, we were the first people in the restaurant and our food took over 45 minutes to come out. I am not sure what happened as we were the only ones in the restaurant and did not order an appetizer either. The server and head chef apologized for the wait and accommodated us with an additional glass of wine and free dessert. At the end of the day, it was terrific and we understand mistakes can happen.

    This was our first dinner at Valley, and the entire experience was outstanding - immediate access to a reserved table, the welcome by, and friendliness of our server Lia, a reasonably priced wine selection, and outstanding food. We really appreciated the opportunity to select from several special dinners. We just found our new favourite Italian restaurant and will definitely be back. Already recommended it to someone today.

    Pam was our waitress. Funny, attentive and great service. We were with friends and we had a very enjoyable evening. The noise level was very acceptable, we could carry on a conversation normally. Food was wonderful, fresh focaccia to start and very tasty wine. Main dishes were very flavourful. Can’t wait to revisit and try something different. Thanks Pam, see you soon. Noreen and Jeff
