We Love this restaurant and when I needed to plan a surprise dinner party for my husband‘s birthday this was the place I knew would do a fabulous job! Originally it was to be eight people and at the last minute friends called and said they were driving into town so I had to make it 10. The hostess called to confirm my voicemail and gladly accommodate the request. We were seated in a semi private part of this quaint restaurant. Josh did a fabulous job taking care of all of our needs, pacing each course appropriately for the lively conversation. The food and wine were spectacular as always so thank you to the entire team at Valenza!!
Wonderful experience last Saturday night. Attentive, friendly service and great food.
Always the best food, service and ambience!
Food is good and service is friendly, engaging and patient. Very noisy near the bar and sometimes the food is slow.
This was our second visit.
We enjoy going when Joe is there for the live music.
The food is delicious, service great and prices reasonable for this quality of food and atmosphere.
Anthony took wonderful care of our party of four celebrating two birthdays!
I was the only one who has been here before, but I feel sure the others will be back!
Have attended this restaurant before and enjoyed coming back.
Exceeded my expectations. Had the scallops. Perfectly cooked. Presentation was over the top.
Pork tenderloin was amazing
Meatball appetizer was also scrumptious!
Sat outside. Beautifully decorated and ambience was relaxing
Service was impeccable
Expensive. But worth it.
The food is so good. One of the best Italian restaurants in Atlanta!
Excellent food and service. The owner Michael makes a point to talk to as many people as possible
We were celebrating a birthday. Everything was perfect!
The cocktails at Valenza are top notch as was the service. Our food was excellent except for one thing. I had the special salad which was beautiful. I kept tasting a lot of salt and finally realized that the lemon vinegraitte had been oversalted. The kitchen needs to pay more attention to this. Otherwise, it was a wonderful dinner with great wine and we even had two desserts which were fabulous!
Great place. I’ve been here for personal and business meals. I love the selection, ambiance and scene. I’ll def be back.
This is a fabulous neighborhood gem! Would highly recommend!
Bucotinni pasta was fantastic. Papardelle sumptuous. Warm chocolate cake was yummy. Service was lackluster and haphazard.
The food was excellent, our waiter very attentive and knowledgeable, but the wait time for the food to come from the kitchen was not acceptable. Took us 2hrs to dine and that didn’t include dessert and coffee which we would have ordered if it hadn’t been so late. The live music added nothing to our experience and made it difficult to talk. A trumpet player in a dining room, really??
Great service, great food. It's lovely to sit outside - inside might be a bit loud.
Excellent. Food is delicious! Service is great. Ambience is wonderful. And half dollar bottle of wine night on Monday makes for a great beginning to the week.
Great mussels and Cesare Salad with tasty white anchovies. Highly recommend the Bucatini, Spaghettini and Ravioli. Great Italian wine list. Wonderful service from Anthony. Some of the best Northern Italian in on all of Atlanta.
We sat on the patio and it was beautiful - great atmosphere. The short rib ravioli was delicious and my husband loved the parpadalle. We also had the meatball appetizer. The bread is fresh and yummy. Great drink selections. It's a neighborhood gem, and I have loved it for years.
One of my favorite spots in Brookhaven! The food is wonderful and the outdoor patio is a great vibe.
Excellent server and delicious meal!
Good neighborhood crowd
Our first time at Valenza. Fabulous Italian food. Great neighborhood vibe.
We were celebrating our daughter’s 21st. They put the three of us in a dark cove seating area large enough for six. This made for an awkward/less intimate dining experience. You can’t see any of the restaurant from inside the “cove” and it was very dark. Not festive for a 21st Birthday. (They knew it was her birthday as I’d told them in advance and also reminded the waiter). Nothing special was brought out for dessert which surprised me.
The food was fabulous and we will return but just not a good choice for a special occasion which is surprising given $30 entrees.
Girls night out and catch-up, my friend and I wanted good food, good wine and a good place to chat. Valenza was all that and more Wednesday night. Service was happily accommodating---my friend chose the special but with a dozen substitutes and special requests, and the waiter smiled through all and the dish was served to her delight. My cod with risotto and mushrooms was good but not the best I've had at Valenza. Salad was more than enough to split. Wines served at right temperature. We asked for a quiet table so were shown to a new-to-me room at the back with about 8 tables. It was slow to fill, so was easy place for conversation. We declined dessert, bowing to diets, and had more wine instead. Happy evening.
excellent food just consider salting your pasta and dishes more as all that I tasted where much better with additional salt! attentive server!! will be back
Dinner was fabulous, and we had a corner table as requested. It was a wonderful evening. My only wish would be for it to be a bit quieter. Ambiance is lovely. Waitstaff great!!
Service was terrible. Took almost 90 mins to get our entrees and then received our check before we were given our desserts
It can get very noisy when all tables are occupied, at dinner time. The chicken dish is very good.
The food is fabulous and fresh. I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant.
This is a good neighborhood restaurant, not a destination restaurant. Food was average at best, service was efficient but not warm or welcoming. Great place for people watching. We will not be returning.
Excellent in every way
We celebrated #48 and everything was wonderful!
Thank you for a lovely evening.
F & S
Our party had the salmon, beef and pork - all were well seasoned and at the perfect temperature. The wine pour was generous. The white chocolate bread pudding and the warm chocolate tart were outstanding.
Love this restaurant. It's my go to all the time.
Great Food, Reasonably priced for quality. Try sitting outdoors. The scenery is awesome. Knowledge waiters/waitresses. Give them a try. Will not be disappointed!
Always consistent high quality meal. One of our neighborhood favorites
We frequently have dinnerwith friends at both Haven and Valenza. The food is always fresh, delicious, and beautifully presented! The experience is always a treat!!
absolutely delicious -- everything and service was outstanding.
Valenza is so great, wonderful pasta, salads, and half price wines on Monday night make it a great way to enjoy good food and drink...
My friends loved the food and will be back to try more!
Great evening spent there with friends who had not dined there before. They were very impressed and loved it!
