It was decent at best. Service guy really didn't focus too much on us once we ordered our food. Website was not clear on valet.

This restaurant is a hidden jewel. It's a little off the beaten Nashville path, which is a good thing. Food and service were fantastic. If you're looking for an old school italian vibe, Vanentino's is for you.

All is forgiven! About 20 years ago I had made a reservation for an anniversary dinner for two. I had asked for a cozy corner table. When we got there and the Maitre D saw that it was two women, he glance at the empty table in the corner and proceeded to try and sit us in the middle of the room. I said "oh no, I called in and ask for a corner table, like that one over there"...long story short, he did seat us at the corner table. But, I never went back....until today for lunch. The move over to Hayes Street was a good one! The separated rooms, white tablecloths, and beautiful decor, made it an extremely pleasant afternoon...at the cozy corner table that I had not even asked for. :-) Service was impeccable, I had a shrimp and pasta special of the day and my friend had the lasagna. Huge portions, especially after having good bread and olive oil to start. They brought my friend who was celebrating her birthday an excellent tiramisu with a birthday candle on the house. All in all, it was a most enjoyable lunch, old school, just how I Iike it! I will go back!

Have been coming to Valentino's intermittently for 15+ years. Their location on Hayes is charming, quiet, and the food is wonderful. The flatbread antipasto is a favorite. Grant, our server, was very attentive and friendly. Will definitely be back!

Once again Valentinos made a very special occasion even better. The stuffed eggplant appetizer was phenomenal. Dinner, as usual, was way above par. It was our anniversary so we had the ‘Bananas Foster’ for dessert. It was the best we’d ever had!
All and all a wonderful evening.
