We were looking for a change of pace from the Italian restaurants we usually go to and found Valenza. We are so happy we did. Our waiter, Tony, was amazing, and the food matched the great service. This will defiantly be our go-to spot for date nights from now on.

The mussels were my favorite thing on the menu. The squid pasta and spaghetti were a solid choice of entrees. Perfect spot for a date night

I usually love this place, but the service was not good. We had to wait for our wine although we had gotten our appetizer 15 minutes earlier. Also, for Covid seating, we were very close together. The food was good, but the close seating and a waiter that was not attentive made for just a fair experience.

Amazing restaurant. Comp Valet service was nice! Appetizer and both dishes that we ordered were amazing. Service was prompt and attentive. Ambiance was more on the date-night/romantic side, which is exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommended!

We love sitting at the bar- Michael and Grace provide impeccable, personalized service. Food is alway amazing. Mussels are delicious and they often have fresh fish options which are also delicious.

I ordered the agnolotti and it had been scored to the point that when it was reheated, that whatever liquid is had been reheated in had washed any flavor inside of it out. The wine that the server had said paired well with the Grouper Chef’s Special for my wife was a robust cab which... doesn’t pair well. The Grouper special itself was delicious.

Wow! This restaurant blew us away in just about every way. It far exceeded our expectations as far as food and ambience. We had several pasta dishes, a fish dish and one pork. The butternut squash ravioli and Bucatini were my absolute favorites, and everyone at the table agreed they were the best pasta we'd ever had. The bucatini cammot be beat, and I have craved it since we left also! We also ordered 3 appetizers to share including the calamari, meat and cheese tray, and bread. The wine list is also very nice, with a great bit of variety. We had a dutch chocolate ice cream on bread pudding for desert and it was simply perfect. We cannot wait to return to Valenza! It was truly a special place with outstanding food.

Pastas were very good tasting, filling and a good value. Salmon size was less than half of what I expected, especially to be the most or one of the most expensive items on the menu.

Would have been 5 stars across the board if not for the incredibly drunk guy at a table of 6 across the room being loud enough to hear 30 feet away. Hard to believe nobody came by to settle him down a bit. Food was off the charts good as usual.

I've been to Valenza atleast 30 times and I don't know what happened this time with the food.. whether they changed vendors or chefs but the buccatini was super bland/dry compared to what I have experienced in the past and the pork tenderloin entree was the worst pork tenderloin i've ever had.
