    Though the service was slow the food was amazing. You felt chef’s personal touch in every bite. We were visiting from California and got very impressed. We will stop by again when visiting next time.

    The food is consistently amazing, service was quite slow for a Tuesday evening unfortunately. I believe they brought the wrong dish out to our table as they took the ravioli back to the kitchen as we ordered gnocchi and it took an additional 20 minutes for the mains to come out. The table beside us came in, ordered before us and were out before we received our mains. Mistakes happen but please own up to it or offer compensation.

    This was a first time visit by our party of 4, and we were celebrating a birthday as well. We felt like we had our own private nook through their use of decorative “movable” wall partitions. We all enjoyed the Caesar salads, and each of us thoroughly enjoyed the 4 different entrees we tried (Positano, Pasta di Nettuno, Pollo Ripieno and Filletto di Manzo). Our guests were very impressed with menu and quality of the food. We are already looking forward to our next visit to try other menu items. Highly recommend!

    The food was incredible but we waited 20 minutes just to be seated with a reservation. It took a long time to even get water on the table. Our reservation was 6:30, we decided quickly what we wanted but didn’t get appetizer until almost quarter to 8, a salad, and it was a very long wait for the entrée, if not for the incredible food, we would have complained. We decided they must be short staffed and let it go however.

    The restaurant has put up heavy divider walls inside. I understand this is due to Covid but we were in a corner and it was too tight. I’m not at all claustrophobic and I literally broke out in a sweat twice. Food and service are amazing here… ALWAYS… but I will wait until patio season before I go back. Dining inside last night was a truly uncomfortable experience

    Had a lovely evening at Valley restaurant with my wife and another couple. We were seated promptly and our server was excellent. The food was excellent- extensive wine list. Parking could be better- but managed to find a spot. Great ambience- I especially liked the temporary Covid walls between tables- it made things very private and intimate.
