There was a mixup about our reservation which we weren’t even aware of until after the fact. Our dinner was delicious. We both had different veal entrees, salads and shared a chocolate mousse cake dessert. The service was excellent & staff very pleasant.
We will definitely return,
awesome food and best service around
Always amazing!! Food, service are excellent.
The food was excellent, however the butter came prepackaged. I would have like it presented in a way that reflected the the quality of the food.
This is the best place ever to get eggplant in any way shape or form. Seriously they offer three different eggplant options and each is fantastic. Plus their other choices are great!
A great special occasion spot with outstanding Italian food. As we would expect Saturday Eve was especially busy but the service was good but a little rushed. I highly recommend but will probably return on a weeknight.
The food was excellent but they were out of limoncello cake. Connie did her usual great job as our waitress. Biggest problem was the lights going up and down with the ac kicking on and off.
Absolutely my favorite “go to” place for a special Italian dinner! Never disappoints! Highly recommend... especially the veal! 👊🏻
Great food. Nice quite no frills atmosphere Service was very good.
My wife and I moved down from New Jersey a little over a year ago and have been searching for what we consider a "neighborhood" Italian restaurant. Our year-long search is over. Bello Valentino provides the intimacy of a local restaurant with old country style Italian food. From soup to dessert, everything was excellent in both taste and service. The wine list is a bit pricey, but the carafe of house wine was quite good and was more than enough for my wife, myself and our grown son. One shortcoming: parking. There are few spaces immediately adjacent to the restaurant. We had to park way back in the rear in a dark, poorly lit grass area. Other than that, no complaints whatsoever. We have found our "favorite" Italian restaurant and will return often.
Food was outstanding. Best Italian restaurant I have found in our area in years. Family-owned and operated. Friendly service from greeted warmly by the chef/owner's wife the minute we walked in the door. Their eggplant parm is amazing. We will be back and we have let our friends who don't already frequent this restaurant know how awesome it is.
Very enjoyable dining experience, would recommend to friends and will return.
Enjoyed our visit. The bread could have been better, but food was very fresh and tasted great.
Bello Valentinos is an excellent restaurant and a great find. Family feel to the whole place and the entire staff is super polite. The food is excellent and the menu is well thought out. Thank you for a very enjoyable meal out!
Great food!! Great service. Haley was a great waitress.
Absolutely the best Italian food in the area! A little pricey, but well worth it.
The restaurant was good as always but they were unaware of the reservation that I made and was confirmed on open table!
What a great little place! We had a really nice dining experience, it was exactly what I was looking for. A round table with a few friends, a bottle of Italian Red & tasty food. Everyone loved their dishes, & my special requests were fulfilled. I had the zuppa di pesce, which I like with angel hair on the side. Perfect! And the seafood was cooked to perfection. The other plates were linguini with clams, veal picatta & rigatoni. All done quite well. I don't know, but I think there must be an Italian in the kitchen. 😁
Love this place good wine , food and service, would recommend you try
Food and service were excellent. Some guests were a bit loud but overall it was a great meal.
Great experience with two other couples. We all enjoyed it! The food was fantastic if you are familiar with Bostons' North end. Same approach of small but remarkable cuisine. Just be careful with Paula, she is too much fun... we excused her since her husband is the chef :).
The reason I did not gave 5 stars is due to an excess and usage of salt (in my opinion). That said, I did not request to minimize salt prior to order which I will do next time.
In all, do not miss this unique and taste experience at fair pricing!
A delightful dinner. We had filet Marsala. The steaks would perfectly cooked medium rare, very tender and juicy. And the Marsala sauce with mushrooms was nice and light, not overwhelming. Lemon cake was excellent. We plan to return and bring friends!
This is our favorite Italian restaurant. Friendly , great service and amazing food.
Very reasonable prices for good food. Way better than the majority of Daytona/NSB Italian restaurants
Great food and great service. It reminds of the small, family owned Italian restaurants in the north east
This was our first visit to Bello Valentinos and we are already looking forward to our next visit! The food and service were outstanding. The staff, and especially our server, were very helpful and patient.
The first time I went was very nice where there weren’t as many patrons as there was on the weekend 2nd visit , The food was excellent on both visits though .
First let me say this is one of our favorite restaurants. The Saturday we went recently, they were extremely busy, all tables full, people were waiting to be seated as well as having a group of 20 sitting at a large table in the rear, AND they were short a wait person. Only two waitresses for the entire restaurant - they never missed a beat! Service was outstanding, food perfect and - everything came, time wise, as expected. Awesome, simply a fantastic place.
Overall, very nice dining experience. Highly recommended
As always, Bella Valentino delivers a delicious meal--worth a drive!
My husband and parents and I were there on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve and as always the food was fabulous and the service spectacular. Bella Valentino’s has long been a favorite restaurant of our family’s and we can’t recommend it enough! Ask to be seated with Amy or Haley - you will love either of these super ladies!
Just moved from NY and was desperate for a really good Italian restaurant. We found it! Treated great from when we entered till we finished. Authentic dishes with really good sauce (or gravy depending on where you’re from!). Good portions and not overwhelming.
We were there New Year’s Eve and the noise levels was pretty high, but there were big groups in a fairly small place. I assume and will see if it’s a little more subdued next time.
This will be my go to place for a special Italian dinner.
We haven’t been here for at least 5-7 years. Why? We don’t know. Everything was as good, if not better, than our previous visits. Grazie.
Don’t let the location or outside appearance dissuade you from trying this restaurant. It’s everything you want from an Italian restaurant: cozy, warm, inviting, friendly service, and excellent traditional Italian food. My husband and I were on vacation here for New Years and are fairly particular about our Italian food and this place exceeded all of our expectations. Would absolutely recommend!
We went for an early New Year's Eve dinner with friends. They were very busy but our 6 o'clock reservation was honored promptly. The service was excellent. Everyone had veal of some type and it was all fork tender. Romaine lettuce was back in the Caesar salad. The desserts were delicious. This is one of our top 2 dining choices in New Smyrna Beach.
Went on Christmas Eve with a party of 6. Food was outstanding and plentiful. everyone raved about their meals. Appetizers were delicious. Food was superb. As busy as they were service was outstanding. We will be regular patrons
Always good here!!!
Our group had a fantastic dinner the service was excellent and the food was wonderful. Great atmosphere too.
Started going to Bello Valentino last year. Always a wonderful evening. Just the two of us or when we bring family and friends - food is exceptional, wonderful service and great atmosphere. Friendly welcoming front desk. Do yourself a service and make a reservation. Our favorite place.
Friendly service and great specials!
