    This was a great little Italian restaurant find for me. We decided to go there to celebrate my wife’s birthday and what a great decision. Right from the moment we arrived, we felt welcome. They were able to accommodate some changes to our entrees of choice and the food still came out excellent. The service was excellent throughout. They even surprised my wife with a complementary Tiramisu for her birthday, which in itself was worth the visit. Overall a great evening to remember.

    We had the table side Ceasar salad which was pricey but delicious. Then my husband and I had Veal Saltimboca. This was wonderful and the portion was just right. Then we have banana foster which was prepared tableside. Again very good. A great night. Service was really good. Great restaurant for a special night out.

    I'm a life long New Yorker and daughter of a Croatian immigrant, always looking for delicious, authentic Italian food (Croatian food and Italian are very similar!) Valentino's did NOT disappoint!! I got the gnocchi bolognese and it was fresh gnocchi and not the frozen type. It reminded me of the gnocchi my sister's late father in law would make from scratch. The sauce was delicious, fresh and perfect! Will definitely be back!!

    I took my wife here for our 1 year anniversary. This was a great experience from start to finish. The service was top notch, they accommodated my seating request and tried to get us some privacy. The food was amazing, we ate the steaks as well as lasagna. The bread was amazing as well. We were so happy with our meal and this was a great. We couldn’t find any faults at all. They even surprised us with a delicious piece of Tiramisu. We will absolutely be coming back. The pricing was very fair and great for the quality of food. Highly recommend this place! Thank you for the amazing experience.

    The food was not up to the usual standards of Valentinos. There was only salmon as a fish entree and it was mediocre. The Lamb was tasteless and the ceasar salad was a disappointment. Dessert was good as well as a nice pour for the wine.

    We had the calamari and arancini for appetizers and both were delicious! I had the halibut special which was very good. My husband had the bucatini and he said he would order it again. Both of our cocktails, a dirty martini and an Old Fashion were yummy!!

    As long as I have lived in Nashville, everyone has said Valentino's is the place to go for "real" Italian food. The two homesick Italians I took there last night disagree. Though the service was impeccable and the flatbread delicious, the entrees were disappointing. Both the veal and chicken were tough. While the prices were not unreasonable, one would expect much better food for the cost. We won't be back.

    I believe the waiter pulled the ticket too soon. Let the food sit in the window. The pasta was dry veal was also dry and soggy. My friend's lasagna looked to be previously frozen and also dry. The pasta noodle was pasty/soggy, where you can tell it was reheated and put under a heat lamp. The party next store was loud, and at times we couldn't hear one another speak. We also felt rushed by the waiter.

    Andre makes things fun and entertaining aside from giving exceptional service. The Filet, mash potatoes and Caesar salad were all amazing. We are planning to return and try the bone in Rib eye and some Mussels. Anyone who hasn’t been here and loves good food should go ahead and reserve a table for yourself. The patio also looked very inviting. Thanks so much!
