Consistently, one of the best grilled pork chops I have ever had. The lobster ravioli is delicious - excellent filling. We all love the arancini. Great place made even better because it's BYOB.

Food and service were very good. The noise level was a problem. Bad acoustics in the room I think . Our table was too close , felt on top of others , chairs way too close to another parties and they were very loud.
I would definitely recommend and come again for the delicious food. I’d request the other room.

We have heard such wonderful things about the restaurant and were excited to try it. Unfortunately our experience didn’t live up to the hype. I’d like to say that our service was great. Unfortunately we found some of the food we ate in the restaurant to be a bit bland. The lobster ravioli was excellent but needed salt. I had ordered the seafood scapatelle which also needed salt to get any real flavor. Where we found the biggest issue was the chicken parmigiana that we took home for our daughter. Unfortunately it was inedible. The chicken tasted almost like someone had poured an entire lime on it. It didn’t taste at all like chicken parm. Had we been in the restaurant when we tried it, we would have sent it back. This dish was the most expensive we ordered and we had to throw it away. I am hoping we just went on an off night as my friends have all had great experiences. We won’t rush back, but am willing to try it again at some point.

We had dinner with 5 people. The hostess showed us to our table. The server came and introduced herself. She opened our wine and brought a chiller along with extra ice. She shared highlights of the menu with the focus on the homemade pastas and several of the appetizers. When she took our orders she made note of special requests
Food was delicious. Try the antipasto sampler and any of the homemade past dishes

My husband and I ate dinner at Vallini recently. My pasta dish was undercooked and lacked flavor. My husband ordered pappardelle with chingale (wild boar). Pasta was undercooked, and the meat was not wild boar. Extremely disappointing.

Gret BYOB in the heart of Skippack. Servers are pleasant and food was out in a timely manner. The ingredients, in many cases, are either home made or authentic to the dish. We've been there several times and will definitely be back.

First off - service was outstanding. When we first arrived we were seated in a room with a very boisterous crowd of about 20 folks. We asked to move and the staff accomodated us almost immediately. The menu was varied with many choices. Definitely try the antipasti appetizer! I had the flounder and stuffed crab special which was very good. My wife had the sausage and risotto but there could have been more sausage and less risotto. We’ll go back and try something else on the menu and give the place another try. Parking is free and available right behind the restaurant.

Everything was amazing from start to finish. Staff, friendly and attentive, food is outstanding especially the lamp chops, to die for, my absolute favorite and the chef doesn’t even mind that I like them very well done always cooked to perfection. Ambience is wonderful. Nothing negative to say about this fabulous, favorite restaurant!!! The Italian dishes are also great from what everyone we dined with told me, everyone was completely satisfied with their choices.

Always take friends with us and each time they are pleased. So much so, they return with their friends. Last night our friends ordered the flight of pasta. 3 different pastas on a plate. They loved it. You can always count on a delicious well prepared meal. Being a BYO helps to control the cost. We will be back!

My husband and I went here for dinner last night. The food was great and our server was wonderful! We had the calamari as an appetizer and it was good. It was a huge portion so I definitely recommend sharing it with someone because it’s way too much for one person. My husband had the ribeye steak and said it was perfect (I tried some as well and I have to agree!). I had the lobster ravioli with the crab cream sauce and it was delicious. We ate indoors and the noise level was definitely loud which made it a bit difficult to have a normal conversation without raising our voices a bit. I had read previous reviews about the noise level and they were right. We will definitely go back to try more food but I think next time we’ll try the outdoor seating. All in all we had a great dinner.
