    Beautiful room. Old school Italian family restaurant service. You feel welcome from the moment you get there. Wonderful menu and plenty of specials (in the traditional Italian restaurant style of having a bigger list on specials than regular menu). Every item was very well prepared and presented. Wonderful experience.

    Staff is fantastic and bends over backwards to accommodate you. Food is consistently excellent. Only downside is they get very busy so waiters and help are rushing everywhere and it’s distracting making it less romantic or relaxing to dine. Can’t be avoided with such an open floor plan but overall great dining experience if u want great food and service!

    Told them via open table and when arrived that is was an anniversary. First they wanted seat us next to front door and then we asked to move and the best they could do is sit us next to kitchen door. Clearly they had interest in acknowledging our special occasion.

    The drinks were WAY overpriced and added to the food subtotal and taxed. Alcohol should be seperated from the food and not taxed. The tax should be incorporated in the cost of the drink already. This is double dipping and a way of inflating the overall bill to pad the tip. I complained and was told "This is the way we always do it." Well, its plain wrong! I wish someone would crack down on this illegal practice once and for all. Too many restaurants do this and OpenTable should pressure them to stop or remove them from their website.

    We celebrated a teen Birthday with family and had a party room to ourselves with extraordinary service, terrific cuisine, great spirit, and elan. The menu is filled with quality choices and presentation did not fail. Carrying off parties is no easy task and Valbella showed this could be done with style. Bravi Tutti !!! We will definitely be back for a more normal dinner; there were too many wonderful dishes to sample when time and circumstance permit - along with an excellent choice of wine (for the adults). p.s. don't miss the Napoleon made to order for however many are interested. Delicious.

    We had an absolutely wonderful lunch. The service was impeccable. The diver scallops with fois gras was an appetizer worth writing home about. I really liked that one can order a half portion of pasta for lunch. Truly my only tiny complaint was the red sauce for the lobster ravioli which was a bit underwhelming given the price point. Very comfortable seating with ample space between tables.

    Wine list was astonishingly badly designed. Extraordinarily overpriced wines at all price levels, absence of anything decent in the $75-125 range, vastly more reds than very small selection of whites, and only silly pedestrian wines by the glass (marked up 4.5x!). Seemed to be designed for the B&T/Sopranos crowd, which may be their target market. But don't then label on own website and Open Table as hip or Northern Italian, when actually neither.

    We went here for Valentine’s day. They tried to fit too many people into the restaurant, which ruined the experience. Our server was very nice, but our food took a very long time. The pasta was excellent, but the steak was mediocre. They brought in low quality tables to fit the enormous crowd and our table wobbled all night. We were also very close to the tables around us, which was very unpleasant. A lot of people were complaining about the service. There were simply too many people for the kitchen to handle.

    Understand it was Valentine’s day, but it was understaffed and the service was delayed. They ran around the place which partially ruined the relaxing feeling of a nice date night.
