Valanni restaurant opened its doors in September of 2000, introducing "Medi-Latin" cuisine to Philadelphia. Situated right off of the "Avenue of the Arts," Valanni has become a pre-theater ritual and place to meet for a night-cap for many who live in and around the neighborhood. The bar at Valanni keeps up with the creative food served by offering an assortment of sangria, mojitos and other specialty drinks.

After being disappointed in the ambience on our last visit (very loud and over-crowded), we had a quiet, delicious meal on a Sunday night. will definitely return. highly recommend the calamari

Great mezzo plates to share. The grilled octopus was excellent! Very convenient to Kimmel Center for dinner before the orchestra

Went there pre orchestra. Very nice server. Nice drink menu. The two entrees we had were delicious- chicken saltimbocca and scallops.
Always liked the place for its variety of tapas, location and cozy atmosphere but now I know their large platters hold their own as well.

First time there and I would definitely go back. The food was amazing. The noise level was little high when we first arrived but as people started to leave it dies down. Ee did a combo of tapas and regular plates. Everything was amazing. I recommend the cheese board and the fried goat cheese and the oreo beignet for dessert.

What a gem! Amazing food and cocktails, a nice blend of neighborhood vibe and hot spot, and a lively mix of people to watch and mingle - definitely worth checking out, and I would recommend making it a regular.

The service was poor at best. I ordered a glass of champagne and it took 15 to 20 minutes. We both ordered steaks cooked to different temperatures and they switched the plates. They didn't bring us silverware when needed, spoon with soup, knife with steak, etc.

I had a great experience at Valanni. The cuisine was creative, yet fit for everyone. Pricey, but worth every penny.

Have been to Valanni several times and have enjoyed the food and atmosphere. However, when my boyfriend I decided to go for Valentines the experience was horrible! I am beyond disappointed! For $65 per person we were given basically snacks that were not up to par with the quality of Valanni I had before. The shrimp in my ceviche were still raw. The ceviche itself was literally one shrimp and scallop cut into many small pieces. My boyfriend had the pork belly arugula salad. It was beyond bland with one piece of pork belly. His steak was well done and was served with frozen fries! They did not even ask how he would like the steak to be cooked! The mezze board was laughable with one piece of Brie. Portions were beyond small, quality was beyond poor. Service was decent. When it comes too fine dinning I never mind spending money, but the dinner was not even worth $25 per person let alone $65! Honestly the entire experience put a damper on on Valentines Day! HORRIBLE! I will never go there again. Seemed like they were exploiting couples on a night where they knew people would pay good money.

Corey was super attentive. Fun atmosphere. Lots of fun tapas-style options to share. Will definitely be back!

The food preparation was imaginative and wonderfully executed. There were many tapas selections that I have not seen in other tapas-style restaurants. Six plates was plethy for the two of us.

Our 5:00 dinner reservation was during happy hour, so we took advantage of half price tapas and craft beer on draft. The calmari was very lightly breaded and extremely fresh. The oysters were also extremely fresh. The (large portion) paella was flavorful, with (again) extremely fresh shellfish. The service was excellent.

Very limited menu and very pricy.

Happy hour and restaurant are a bargain
