Caesar salad, made table-side for two
Excellent lamb chops
This is exclusive, romantic and personal experience is worth every single cent. Amazing food! Don’t miss this hidden GEM in Nashville.
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.
Always loved this place. I do miss the wine cellar at the other location. The bananas foster is the best.
Consistently high quality. Will continue to go back and recommend it to others. Best Lasagna I ve ever had.
Wonderful service and delicious food!!! The table-side caesar salad was unforgettable!
Awesome food and service
Excellent service, food quality and portions. A very nice respite from the downtown Nashville scene.
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.
Absolutely the best group ever!
Great place for a romantic dinner or a gathering of old friends - the rooms are small the bar is wonderful and the food amazing
Our waiter was outstanding! Food was also very good!
We celebrated our 44th anniversary there. Loved our server, loved the food.
We had a great meal & enjoyed this restaurant.
Excellent!!! Food was really good and portions and service were very good!!! Highly recommend!!!
We choose Valentino's after waiter at hotel agreed with it over the others on our short list. We we celebrating 34 years of marriage and was seated in quite room with two other couples celebrating their anniversaries also. It was a very nice experience with great service and food.
Wonderful Anniversary Dinner! Some of the best Italian outside of Italy! Would do it again!
Quality food, great service, and a quiet setting. We enjoyed it quite a bit!
Andre is excellent
Just a totally wonderful experience! Everyone we came in contact with went above and beyond. Our server was excellent. We will definitely be back when we are in the Nashville are!
It was highly recommended by a buddy of mine we will definitely come back the next time we are in Nashville
The food is delicious, the staff are friendly and the service is excellent. We dine here every time we are in Nashville.
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!
Wonderful 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration. Food was delicious and Andre a delight. Table side Caesar and bananas foster an extra special delight. Hope to be back someday.
I would give service 6 stars if I could.
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!
Great Italian fare. Nothing but positive things to say about our experience. One of my favorite Italian meals. We will visit again whenever we are in Nashville.
Great food and service. Perfect for a romantic dinner.
Andre is the BEST and always takes the time to make sure everything is perfect!!
I decided to take my boyfriend out to a nice dinner for his birthday and this was the perfect spot! Our waiter was extremely friendly, very romantic setting, and the food was delicious! If you are looking to get nice Italian food, this is the spot you have been looking for!
Went for wife’s birthday. It was a perfect experience. Every component was tops. Highly recommend and look forward to returning.
V’s never disappoints, The food, staff and overall time was great
Delicious and warm bread!
This restaurant was amazing from the time we walked thru the front door until we left. Great job Lyman and Alexandria, the service was great. I had the Lobster Ravioli and it was delicious. this was my first time here and will definitely return when I am in the Nashville area.
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.
Huge portions, friendly, attentive servers. Food was just okay. Bananas Foster delicious! Enjoyed ambiance of the old house.
A beautiful hidden gem! The food and ambiance was spectacular.
On vacation, food was amazing with a nice ambiance
Second visit 25 years apart wasn’t disappointed though I liked the previous location better.
