Best food ever! Love the location, atmosphere and wait-staff. Excellent!
The food and service was wonderful as always but it was SO HOT in there!
This was our first time here at Valentino’s and will definitely not be our last. We had the Espresso rubbed filet and the veal saltimbucco! Both of our meals were AMAZING. Grant was our waiter, he was just as exceptional as the food! Highly recommend Valentino’s
Absolutely fabulous dinner - we loved everything about it.
Food was fabulous and wait staff were very efficient and friendly. Will definitely return.
Wonderful old school table side service. Loved it!
Great meal which was made more enjoyable by our waiter, Andre! Can't wait to go back!
Celebrating a birthday. The food was good, but not great. Actually expected better. Bigger concern was though we are hopefully coming close to end of Covid-19 apparently the servers and staff wearing masks is optional. Our main server did wear one but the one who helped did not. Plus he wiped his nose with his hand while moving through the dining room. Felt uncomfortable after that. He was an attentive server otherwise, but that kind of took some of the ease out of our eating there. I know everyone wants to get back to normal (as I do) but restaurants can help me and perhaps others by voluntarily taking precautions.
It was great to see the place thriving again like it once was.
We were seated in a small room, four tables full, a bit noisy for my taste. I tend to picture respectful quieter people eating in fine dining establishments, over loud, cackling hens.
The food was quite good--the chef prepared a special dish for me bc I have a cheese allergy--linguini with white clam sauce. My friend had the lobster ravioli which was delicious, as well. We split the flourless chocolate torte, but wouldn't recommend it, the texture a bit like fine cornmeal. A poor choice on our part, given that Valentino's has the best Tiramisu in all the land.
Great place to celebrate a special evening with a special someone.
Excellent, as always!
Great food and wine. They had a lamp chop special that was to die for
We found the ambiance at Valentino's to be excellent. The food was superb and the service by Andre was absolutely top notch. If you are looking for a special evening dining experience give Valentino's a shot. Be prepared to pay a little more but it's worth it.
Another great meal at Valentino's restaurant. The excellent combination of good food, great service and the comfort of a home ambiance make for a fabulous night out with friends.
So romantic and the food is BEYOND! Such a beautiful setting for an intimate dining experience!
We had the most amazing service and the food was spectacular. The espresso rubbed filet was to die for, and the ambiance was cute and quaint. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
Once again dinner at Valentino's was a memorable occasion. Everything from the bottle of Barolo to the mixed green salad to the wild boar lasagne and gigli toscano pasta and the chocolate mouse was delicious. Our server, Grant, did an outstanding job. We highly recommend Valentino's for an authentic, delicious Italian dinner.
Peter was a fantastic server, offered excellent wine choices, as well as food options.
Our party of 4 enjoyed our night out
Wonderful food, service, and ambience. Pricey, but worth it.
Wife and I anniversary. I feel like this is the best kept secret in Nashville! Food is amazing.
I celebrated my graduation dinner here and it was an amazing experience! The food was amazing and the service was exceptional. My parents have now made it their favorite place to visit when they come see me in Nashville.
We celebrated our 5 year anniversary and they gave us a free tiramisu. The food and atmosphere was great.
Food was a little better than average, but really overpriced. I had chicken parmigiana which was good, not spectacular, but good. The Caesar salad was good, again, not spectacular. Service was very good.
Terrific experience from beginning to end friendly and effective service food was terrific. This is our first trip here and we look forward to returning often in the future
We had a great time! Our waiter was helpful with recommendations and funny! Unfortunately we do not recall his name. He recommended the Risotto which was great. We had a bottle of wine, calamari, caprese, chicken parm, risotto, salmon, and lobster ravioli. We all cleaned our plates (to the best of our abilities, great portions) and finished with tiramisu! We will be back soon!
I cannot say enough good things about Valentino’s. Andrei was a very attentive waiter and had super assistance throughout the meal. Nothing was rushed but we never felt like we were unduly waiting. The food was wonderful. A shared Caprese Salad was just right. The entrees were amazing. My Osso Bucco was fork tender and the portion was huge. My wife had Chicken Parmesan was also delightful. I know for sure because I tried some of it. If we were not staying at a hotel I would definitely have taken some home. Pricing is on the higher side but definitely worth it. I would absolutely recommend Valentino’s.
Andre our waiter was wonderful
Ambience is fantastic. Converted old house.
Food is excellent
Everything about Valentino's is perfect! I highly recommend.
What a great restaurant. Grant was an amazing server My wife and I had amazing meals just a great night out.
Had another fabulous dinner there last night, and again, Valentino's never disappoints. Service, food quality, ambience all exceptional. Will be back soon, highly recommend this restaurant.
The ambiance was quiet - intimate rooms, great playlist. Grant was appropriately attentive. The Caesar salad, cIoppinno, veal, and bananas foster were all delicious. Moderately extensive wine list. We chose an Italian white that was perfect! Truly one of our favorite Nashville restaurants!
Both the food and the service were excellent! We were seated at a quiet table in the corner of one of the rooms. It was my husband’s birthday and they brought him his favorite dessert (tiramisu) with a candle in it!
Usual superb service and food.
Exceptional service along with great food. Definitely a place for a great dinner date.
Loved this place! Went here for the first time to celebrate me & my boyfriend’s one year anniversary! We loved everything that we ate but we throughly enjoyed the bananas foster dessert the best!
Excellent service and food
The food was delicious! Although we were looking for more options on the menu they did not disappoint. Service was excellent, very attentive and they kept the fresh warm bread coming. We will definitely be back.
My favorite Italian restaurant in Nashville, can't wait to go back.
The food was terrific and the service was superb. Our waiter was so authentic, he even whistled in Italian. Whata guy. This was our first time at Valentino's but it won't be the last.
