    This was a customer dinner and we had to stay within our company policy on dinner expense. Grant, our server was amazing in that he kept up with the running tab on the wine, keeping us well within our budget. He was welcoming and it was clear that he loves what he does! The food was wonderful and the ambience made us all feel like we were at home. I will be back in Nashville in a few months, and will definitely visit Valentino's again!!!

    The outdoor seating area looks like it would be great during cooler weather. The food is excellent, the servers are very experienced and attentive, the atmosphere is relaxing and can get a bit loud depending on other customers. A very nice, small bar that would be great to meet for drinks. My 3rd trip in about 6 weeks.

    Service was spot on. Food was great. The only thing I’ve got is the tomato base on the Osso Bucco was to much. Cut back a little bit to where the risotto shines with the meat you will be spot on. Thank you for a great time!

    The food, atmosphere, and service were top notch. We ordered two specials and two menu items. They were all excellent with reasonable portions (e.g., modest appetizers and deserts, large entrées). The immediate neighborhood is a little seedy, but it is beautiful inside and parking close was not a problem (valet available).

    Six of us had a birthday dinner at V. Nice they have a valet. Excellent service throughout meal. Was not overly impressed with all dishes. Guests enjoyed the cioppino and mahi mahi special, as well as the Caesar salad. The lasagna and chicken Marsala less successful. Also my melon with prosciutto was not good. Melon rock hard and prosciutto didn’t look Italian (maybe American version).

    Delicious all 3 courses, fantastic server. Wish I could remember his name, very knowledgeable and friendly. We started with Prosciutto and Melon, Calamari, and Scampi, and split the Osso Bucco, Wild Boar Lasagna, Veal Parm, and the Lamb Special. All the entrées were outstanding. Had tiramisu for dessert which was light, fresh, and chilled to the right temperature.
