Born out of the Best of Philly award-winning Valente's Italian Specialties, Valente’s Cucina is a boutique, modern Italian restaurant inspired by the cuisine of Abruzzo with an eclectic, European touch.

Valente’s is located in the center of the piazza-esque Kings Court, which provides quiet outdoor dining, away from the traffic and noise of Kings Highway.

The restaurant has three dining areas: an intimate dining room, the Chef’s Table high-tops in the kitchen, and seasonal courtyard seating.

Due to the size of our dining room, all parties of six or more are seating at our Chef’s Tables or in the courtyard.

Food was outstanding, service was excellent. We went on Saturday night and the noise level was very high. I would suggest week day night.

Amazing hidden gem of a restaurant in Haddonfield. I will be telling all of my friends and family to try this out. Some of the best food I have had in the area at a very reasonable price. Service is amazing.

The food was “off the charts!” Grilled octopus and sautéed Brussels sprouts to start, shared the porcini pasta dish (to die for) and shared the grilled skate fish! Service was amazing — the wait staff couldn’t do enough for us! And Raj is such a great maitre d!! It was a great place to bring my 2 friends for their birthday. The desserts were fantastic — chocolate bread pudding with salted caramel ice cream — OMG!! The limoncello cake was fabulous as well!! This is a MUST try place! Wow!

First things first, we had several items but I cannot express how amazing the pork chop dish was!! Just soooo good 🤩 The staff were very nice and welcoming. We were in the area running an errand and found this place on OpenTable, gave it a shot and it exceeded our expectations. Definitely will be back with friends over the holidays!

We ate outdoors, was chilly but there were heatlamps; our daughter had dined the week before and gave such a high referral we opted to celebrate my husband's birthday with our adult children. Food was excellent, portions very generous. Will definitely go back!

We chose Valente’s for our anniversary because we enjoyed our experience so much last year. Eating in Kings Court on a perfect fall evening was the perfect choice for our anniversary dinner. We devoured our starters of burrata & also stuffed dates, savored two perfect plates of pasta & shared a lovely NY strip cooked to perfection. The tiramisu & seasonal bread pudding dessert were the perfect notes to end our special evening on. Owner Marcello DeFeo is the warm, gracious host you hope to find when you eat locally & want to become a regular.

Superb dining experience however food was served to fast. In other words, after appetizers, main course was served to quickly. Would suggest more time between appetizers to dinner. Otherwise, wonderful experience, great taste, how to reduce noise when dining inside.

Food was delicious. The lamb appetizer was memorable.The octopus was still a bit chew and not worthy of 20 dollars. The table where we were at was very close to the bathroom and everyone was walking by. It wasn’t romantic atmosphere, noise and very loud. Wish we could have sat outside but the seats were taken. This is my second time back, because I love the food but the seating is always an issue. First time we were seating by the chef and now by the bathroom.
