Extensive menu- difficult to make a choice! Everything was delicious! We had mussels to start followed by Neptune Pasta ( shrimp, mussels, scallops) and Fish of the Day. Both were great. The home made pasta is truly superb. Happy to have found the little gem of a restaurant. We will be back!

We found the Valley when we moved here 5 years ago. We go for special occasions and visits from family and friends. Nadia and her team never disappoint. The food is always fresh and delicious. The friendliness of the staff is so welcoming! I love her Mom she took care of us last nite. Another perfect birthday dinner!

Had a dirty glass
Drinks were empty for quite a while
Seated near tent entrance which was somewhat distracting with all the comings and goings.

Party of 4 shared 2 appetizers (calamari and stuffed mushrooms) both very tasty. Each of us had a different main again all very tasty (ravioli, spaghetti & meatballs, pollo ripieno and positano). Unfortunately we didn’t leave room for dessert but they looked amazing. My only regret is that I don’t remember our server’s name. He was very attentive knew when exactly when to approach and when to leave us alone to devour our delicious meals haha. Very tall with dark hair. All in all it was the perfect night for great company and food

Food and service was great. A little pricey but enjoyed it. Parking, not so great but obviously they are using 1/2 of their lot to make a patio. Would recommend!

Atmosphere lovely, service excellent. Food was good. I know it's an Italian restaurant, but not much choice if you don't eat pasta.
Mussels were very skimpy, don't recommend if you are hungry.

Our evening was awesome. The service was outstanding and every request was honoured. We asked to split two diffent salads and they brought us our own portions served with great presentation. Our server was kind and sweet with a smile under her mask unfortunately. It was a perfect night.

We loved the outdoor patio and the effort the owner and staff put into the separations. There are heavy curtains in case of gusting winds and rain. As always Chef/owner Nadia goes out of her way to be sure we were satisfied including pan frying my husband's delicious steak as he is allergic to shellfish and shrimp were grilled on their grill. This restaurant is always a delight. Be sure to make a reservation as they are busy.

Everything was delicious and we were very impressed with how the patio was set up to handle social distancing during COVID. Someone really spent a lot of time thinking about how they could create great ambience outside. Well done!

The gnocchi gorgonzola was the best we have ever had. The fish special was delicious as were the veal limone and the eggplant parmesan.

We all said we want to come back many times so we can try everything on the menu. Thank you for a great experience for our first patio dinner in many many months. It felt so normal. :-)
