My parents were in town for Thanksgiving. They love Valenza because of the great food and wonderful service. We make it a point to go any time they are in town. It is the perfect restaurant for a special occasion.

Valenza never disappoints. One of my favorite restaurants. Food and service impeccable. Always reserve a table on the "stage" level. Enzo is an excellent server and we always ask for him when we go there.

I love Valenza but only had the octopus appetizer. It was so charred that is all you tasted.. char... no octopus flavor. In spite of that I would recommend as everything else there I've had has been really good.
