Valbella, which since 1992 has been a celebratory place and a regular haunt for the locals who pack it most nights of the week both for its sumptuous food and its astonishing wine cellar, containing 1,450 selections and 16,000 bottles.
Downstairs in the wine cellar is where many people hold private parties of various sizes,and what a splendidly beautiful room it is, done in polished wood, with a lovely fireplace, the tables impeccably set, the stemware thin, the temperature geared to the maintenance of the wine.
Also an outstanding feature of the wine cellar is a heated granite table that can accommodate up to sixteen guests.

We have not been to Valbella for some time, mostly due to the pandemic. That said I am happy to say that the food has only gotten better. I have always been a huge fan of their Caesar Salad (I know how can you butcher a Caesar Salad) but it is just special the way they wrap it with the slice of a cucumber). We also had their Calamari which was nice and crisp and came without the legs—just the body which is just fine with me. In terms of dinner, if you enjoy “spicy” then Pollo Al Diavolo is a dish to consider. Very tender chicken breast slices with spicy (but not too spicy) cherry peppers and Andouille Sausage. This French sausage has great flavor but like any sausage I order I always ask them to cook it very well done.

My wife ordered one of their specials which was Sea Bass wrapped in potato and although pricey it was well worth it. As far as desert---if a restaurant has Napoleon, I always order it in terms of drawing a comparison. Let’s just say it ranks high on my list and I will definitely order it again. One last comment, we did go on a Thursday night which was not that crowded, but what impressed me was the way they have the tables set at a distance. Not necessarily a must on my list, but it is nice to see that Valbella wants you to feel comfortable. Net / Net I will be returning and I suspect to do so in a couple of weeks.

Pasta is always over cooked. The executive chef needs to tell the cooks, everything aldente. We are paying a lot of
Money for consistency, pasta should be serve aldente.

Thank you.

This place never disappoints! Specials are always great and unique, truffle pasta was exceptional. Save room for desserts because they have a selection that will satisfy any sweet tooth. Service is incredible and the team is extremely efficient and accommodating with all requests.

We hadn't been to the restaurant in years and decided to try it again. The service was outstanding, and the covid protocols were excellent. The variety and quality of the menu was very good, and the napoleon dessert was delicious. We'll definitely be back.

We usually love Valbella and it‘a our “go to” for a nice Italian dinner. Unfortunately, we had the worst service we’ve ever encountered at Valbella (or pretty much anywhere) which totally ruined our meal.

Elegant, but very expensive. The menu of the specials have no price indication so you just get the surprise at the end. The portions are quite large. If I go back I will skip the appetizer

Very fine restaurant in a beautiful setting. Welcomed very nicely upon arrival and waiters did not rush us, explained the menu, service was timely and professional and absolutely no problems anytime or with anything. Have been going to Valbella and previous restaurants in the same location for forty years. Will continue to go back as well as recommend it to others without hesitation.

For me Italian food symbolizes comfort food. Now with higher quality ingredients, a professional staff and attention to detail, this experience was simply elevated to the next level. The dry aged steak I ordered was cooked to perfection and the tiramisu was simple delectable.
Shout out to the staff for making our anniversary even more special!
