This was our first visit to Valente's and our entire experience was exceptional. We started with the grilled octopus, shared a portion of cacio e pepe, followed by a seafood pasta dish for my husband and grilled black sea bass for me. We savored every tasty morsel. Our server could not have been better. Nestled in Kings Court in Haddonfield, this is a real gem. We felt as though we were sitting in a restaurant in Florence! The outdoor lighting, music and tables provided the perfect ambiance for dining alfresco in our home town.

We highly recommend dining at Valente's. We will definitely be back. And they also offer catering, wine & dine and pasta making classes.

Go ahead and treat yourself to an authentic Italian meal. Make your reservation today!

Our experience dining here was fantastic. Due to Covid, only a few people can dine in but the atmosphere was quite fun. The food is amazing. The artichokes app was outstanding, along with all our other selections. The owner was also our server and was very friendly and attentive. Great!!!

We were lucky to grab a last minute reservation Saturday night at Valente’s Cucina. The owner and servers were working hard under the new outdoor seating restrictions but were always attentive and so nice and enjoyable! Our meals were fantastic and it was a wonderful early Fall evening. Can’t wait to go back!

Our food was delicious and the seating was very comfortable outside. The only thing I would change would be to add some light. Romantic is one thing, but the light was too low to be able to appreciate how the food looked.

Thank you for the feedback. We actually have light on the way. We ordered pendants with lower lumens heat lamp bulbs to provide both light and warmth for customers!

Overall experience was wonderful! Didn’t wait for seating and got sat on time. The menu option was on the smaller side but we pick delicious meal with good recommendations for the waitress. Lastly it was affordable but the quality of food blew my expectation. Overall I would definitely recommend this this restaurant to friend

Great food and pleasant outdoor dining in King's Court. The big highlight was actually the watermelon salad with mint and gorgonzola. I'm typically not a fan of that kind of dish, but this was outstanding. Highly recommend giving them a try.

Delicious and wonderful meal and dining experience! Lovely quiet courtyard with outdoor dining with tables spaciously apart from other diners. I was a little hesitant to start dining out again with Covid-19, but this restaurant is perfect! The food was amazing, reasonably priced, atmosphere wonderful, and all incredibly clean and safe. Portions are generous, and I enjoyed everything we ate. I especially loved the Mediterranean Board because the cured meats were top notched and there were no "filler" cheeses (which you often find even at top restaurants in Philly). The calamari fritti and carbonara were both especially delicious. I liked that the calamari fritti was a little spicy and don't be fooled by the yellow sauce that comes with it (which I originally thought was mustard and it was the most amazing saffron aioli). Even though we went during the Summer, I was very comfortable with the shade from the trees and the umbrella at our table. Parking was easy to find. Will definitely be dining here again and recommending it!
