Very poor value for money. Food quality and taste is very poor and overly priced. No authentic taste of Italy. LA has much more better Italian restaurants than this place

It is refreshing to see some of the old timers still enthusiastic about giving their customers what they were used to have many moons ago and embracing the new trends by being innovative enough. Piero is an inspiration.... It is also a pleasure to be served by true professionals.

Very good food, including some unusual combinations (grilled octopus on a couscous with squid ink). However the service was very slow but the dinner was New Years eve and the restaurant was full and with their regular menu, so it may be justified.
I'll be back in a more normal day and see if the service is better

The service is terrible. I can’t imagine even no one would open the wine for us until I asked for.

Valentino is like a 60's fine dining restaurant preserved in amber and I don't particularly mean that in a positive sense. Having said that I appreciated the quiet in a room that conversations were possible. The service was good, although a bit impersonal. The meal was also good with the exception of my wife's veal chop which had to be sent back to the kitchen to be cooked to the requested doneness. Overall, our experience was good but definitely not great.

Valentino's has a lot of elegance with fine food and established and long lasting waiters. One of them, Paul, goes out of his way to be helpful. He also recognizes most of the patrons that frequent the restaurant.

A perfect Christmas Eve dinner with culinary delights, top notch friendly service, and one of the best wines we've ever had. Run don't walk for special occasions and everyday dining alike!
