The chef was very accommodating. We were there on Mother's Day and they had a brunch, however the chef allowed my father to order off the menu since he has bad arthritis and finds it difficult to get up and down.

Great & reasonably-priced
Great & reasonably-priced lunch menu. Excellent service. Owners visited our table to check on food quality and service. Will definitely return.

Will try again
This was our first visit to Valenti's, and we will be back. The food was very good, nothing that knocked our socks off, but everything was done well. Only minor complaint is that the pastas were swimming in sauce. Service was excellent, though we were there on a slow Sunday evening.

Was pleasantly surprised
First visit to Valenti's. Didn't know really what to expect. Service was fantastic, although it wasn't very crowded when we dined. Food came out quickly, was hot, and very good. Will definitely visit again.

Food is delicious, portions
Food is delicious, portions ample. Plenty of fish and vegetarian choices, hostess and wait staff couldn't be friendlier, more accomodating. Inside rooms are spacious, dressy, nicely decorated. Outside patio is screened by trees, with wrought iron umbrella tables, very relaxing place to sit on a pleasant night. Only drawback is that smoking is permitted outside, altho there were, thankfully, no smokers the night we were there. We lingered after dinner and noone rushed us.

I really enjoyed this restaurant very much and so did my friend. I have been telling other people about it! Sure glad we ate there.

Food was good
We were celebrating s reunion of sorts and it was the perfect place. We all enjoyed our meals. First time any of us were at Valentis and we were surprised that the pasta dishes did not come with a side salad. That seems pretty typical in Italian restaurants. Oh well. We didn't drink do can't comment on the wine list. Maybe next time.

This italian restaurant has a very nice patio, with torches, and nicely hidden by pine trees.
Excellent pizzas, salads and entrees. Moderately prized, unlike it's neighbors.
Service was attentive and excellent. Live music inside... We didn't hear it in the patio. Nice bar inside.
Definitely worth trying!

Great Italian food on patio
We had a delightful dinner here on the patio. Just charming. Everything was delicious. Service was great. Not fancy but a super place with "grandma's kitchen" type of italian food. We'll be back!

Pleasing casual dinner near hotel
Energetic Italian spot close to hotels in Beachwood. Very good, old style Italian, great specials. Not so easy to find without GPS. Could have a group conversation without worry about bothering others.

Great Food and Service
This was our first visit and won't be our last. We started off with Calimari, which was excellent and then on to a Caprese salad, both very tasty. My wife had Salmon for dinner and I had the Eggplant parm. Both cooked very well and tasted great.
Our server was attentive, knowlegable about the menu, helped my wife pick a wine that she was very happy with, and kept my iced tea glass full. He was very nice.
We had a nice experience sitting outside on their patio.

Great food, great service
This was my second visit to Valenti's, and both experiences were great. This time, I dined for lunch, and the food and service were beyond reproach, and the restaurant was busy. I brought a friend who was visiting from New York, and who is very hard to please. She said the minestrone soup was the "best she's ever had," and her salad with chicken breast (which was perfectly cooked) was "excellent." This is the first time I've ever seen her clean her plate. I had gnocchi with Bolognese sauce; the gnocchi were cooked perfectly and the sauce was very tasty (I'm Italian and also difficult to please). My only "complaint:" they could use a better Prosecco by the glass. Otherwise, outstanding!

Food was good! Service was good - not too much, not too little service - just right!
Atmosphere was just okay - would not recommend for a romantic evening, better for groups.

All the waiters were very
All the waiters were very friendly and crosscovered for each other. The menu is vast and what we had at the recommendation of the server was all excellent. The price is also very reasonable. Wine by the glass was good and not expensive. A great place not far from where we live.

Service was outstanding. Sat on the restaurant side which was very comfortable. Next time I'll sit on the bar side and have their puizza which looked delicious. My veal was very good and the misto salad was delicious. Excellent find, my friends felt the same and the desserts we had, spumoni and ricotta pie, to die for!
Not loud which was great

Perfect for a lunch meeting!
I had a business meeting scheduled and was very pleased to see our table clearly reserved. The restaurant is roomy enough that you don't feel like you're crammed into the space or on top of each other. The server was attentive but not overbearing and our food was absolutely delicious! The place was spotless including the restrooms. I passed a beautifully set table for a group that makes me want to go back again with more people to enjoy! I only wish there was a location on the west side of town where I live so that I can enjoy it more regularly. I won't hesitate to go again or recommend it to others.

Everything about our meal was excellent...the waiter was one of the best anyplace.

Wonderful dinner experience
Monthly dinner meetup for coworkers. Great atmosphere, courteous, prompt service, delicious Italian food selection.
piano music in bar area, extensive wine list, knowledgeable staff. An experience to savor for lunch or dinner, can't wait to go again. Pastas, eggplant dishes, even pizza. Ask for Marc & have a lovely time. Makes a nice group, date or special night out occasion.
