Everything was excellent, as it is every time we eat at The Valley!
The Tuscany soup was fantastic!
Fresh made pasta was so light and my boys loved the tiramisu we brought home for them.

As always the Valley Restaurant never fails to deliver! Lovely intimate atmosphere and food is outstanding. They went out of their way to set up beautiful walls to provide safe and intimate dining during Covid. We will be back again and again!!

We have passed this place for years & based on recommendations from many friends, finally checked it out. The pasta was homemade & delicious. It was intimate & the service was spot on. Would highly recommend this authentic Italian restaurant.

We tried the two specials of the day and both were great! Blackened Atlantic Salmon and Hot Italian Sausage Ravioli in a white cheese sauce!

We enjoyed a Friday night date night here and loved the food. Despite the COVID rules, they've done an excellent job introducing barriers between the seats while fitting into the atmosphere.

Truly a hidden gem. The drinks were made to perfection, appetizers, main courses and desserts were all outstanding! There was also a great wine selection. The flavours were incredible. You can feel the love and pride in every bite! The dessert selection was perfect... something for everyone! The cappuccino was incredible ! We had amazing service from Andrew. He was informative, knew the menu so well, super friendly and timed the entire dining experience perfectly 😀
We really liked the privacy of the walls built around each table, in addition to feeling very “COVID” safe the walls made for a personal dining experience.
Thank you for a great night out!

This restaurant was amazing! The food and the wine was worth the prices, however my partner and I felt the need to whisper because the place was so quiet. Other than that it was a 10/10!

The food and service was amazing. Choice of wines is great as well. I feel the little are we were in was a bit too small with the wood barriers, but overall our experience is a great one. We will definitely be back.

It was our first time dining at Valley and we will definitely be back. The charcuterie board was shared among 4 people and was more than substantial- it was massive! All 4 of us ordered pasta dishes- all fresh and delicious. The service was fantastic and the ambiance was so cozy and comfortable. We had a wonderful experience.

This is a classy little restaurant staffed by excellent mature servers and the food is superb and good value. Of course Covid restrictions have made for tiny spaces between temporary partitions. We look forward to post covid conditions for even better ambiance. We did struggle with reading the menu in this darkened space - old eyes.

The Valley has always been our favourite restaurant, so what better place to celebrate our 60th Anniversary! We had not been there for over a year due to COVID restrictions. We were very pleased with the service, the food, the safety protocols in place, and the entire experience!

This was my first time at the valley: and let me tell you... the food was amazing. Homemade salad dressing, homemade noodles and dessert .. the bread was to die for. I loved the environment and Our server “Pamela” was amazing and made our night even better. She was a lot of fun , attentive and definitely made our night one to remember! They were also very COVID friendly. They follow all rules to keep their guests safe. Hand sanitizer on table which I really liked. Separate from all other guests which was nice to be private as well. I will definitely be visiting this restaurant again soon to try more dishes.
